The Lip Balms I Almost Ate…

| August 20, 2013 | 5 Comments

So Clarins has these lipsticks that they only release during the summer and it’s quite a shame. These bad boys are so dang fabulous that it’s a pity they aren’t available year round.

I got ‘em to review and it has taken everything in me to not bite them.

Yah. Like bite bite. They just look so luscious.

I’m not crazy though. No lipsticks were harmed in this feature.

To sum it up, these are fantastic. They look like lipsticks but they feel like balms. They are sheer in color, long-lasting and have a sweet and fruity smell.

Crystal Mandarin has a juicy and sweet orange tint to it. I didn’t think this would work so well but surprise…it does!

Crystal Rose, I think, is the most wearable shade for all complexions because it has enough red and pink in it to compliment ladies of all skin tones.

Crystal Gold Plum is really more of a gold and while I’ve never liked gold on my lips, this is subtle enough to actually work kinda well.

Crystal Berry is a subtle vamp of the family.

They are spectacular. Clarins, please make these available year round. Please! They retail for $26 a pop at ClarinsUSA.com and at Clarins counters. I’m all for sheer lipsticks. Sometimes you just don’t want a super pigmented lip, ya know?

By the way, I’m still trying not to bite these. Don’t judge me.

    Wow, those look great on you! I especially like the Gold Plum and the Mandarin on you, but they are all good colors.

    Those do look very edible. They remind me of jelly desserts.
