Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm

If you like a lip balm that gives you  subtle colour and moisture but prefer the typical bullet style application of a lipstick then you will love these.



To look at they resemble a hard candy lollipop with an outer shell of a transparent balm and an inner core of soft colour.
 As you apply the inner core gives you the colour whilst the outer shell provides a sheen that is not tacky or sticky but creamy and smooth.

A colour line up of five shades including crystal pink, violet,  two types of coral and a red.  
 We have four of the shades here to show you.











Because the inner core gives you the colour you need to make sure you rub your lips together after applying to evenly distribute the colour all over the lip.
 A really lovely easy to use summer lip product. 

 If you are lucky enough to be in a hot country I wouldn't leave the metal case in the sun(obviously!) or you will end up with a divine smelling colourful goo in your handbag and a metal case that feels hotter than the sun!

They are £16.50 each and available from www.clarins.co.uk
