Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel Review & Swatches
Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel ($22) is a lipgloss for those who LOVE glossy glosses. Released with the Clarins Splendours Summer 2013 Collection in two shades this gloss will be available for a limited time.
Did I mention it has a blackcurrant fragrance and flavor? Yum!
Take a look!
Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel isn’t something everyone is going to love due to its consistency. For lack of a better description I’d compare it to cough syrup. Seriously. It has that thicker yet watery gel texture that quite looks and feels like cough syrup. If I didn’t know better I’d think I was treating the flu rather than my lips…!
Crystal Plum and Crystal Pink
But consistency aside I absolutely adore it. It comes in a slim line tube much like my beloved N.Y.C. New York Color Cosmetics Extreme Lip Glide Lip Gloss with a slanted applicator for application. It give lips that wet lip effect with a high shine glossy finish. The best part is the tint it provides…it has a crazy cool tint that give lips either a succulent red or deep grape shade depending on the shade you use.
The gloss isn’t tacky or is it sticky. It wears comfortably but shortly due to the thinner, watery texture of the product so expect a touch up at hour two or so.
If you’re looking for color, high shine, and glossiness Clarins delivers with Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel! These are fun to say the least.
