Top Pick For Super, Glossy Summer Lips: Clarins Instant Sun Light Lip Balm Review and Swatches

Clarins Instant Sun Light Collection continues to hold much of my attention this Summer. Shrug, even though it rains everyday I can still get my Summer on with good lip balm which is why I'm all about Clarins Instant Sun Light Lip Balm. Far be it from me to argue with Clarins but this is so much more than a mere lip balm. Lip Balm doesn't quite sum these up so I'll rechristen them lip glosses thanks so much!

Click ahead to hear the rave!

Clarins Instant Sun Light Lip Balm is a nourishing lip treatment with color and an SPF of 6. The balms are available in two shades for $20 USD each. Personally as I mentioned above I see these as more of a gloss than a balm. They have a nice slick formula with a glossy finish minus stickiness. They wear quite long as well which is surprising as most glosses that do not have a fair bit of tackiness fail to stick around long on my lips but these manage to stay on nearly half way through the day without slipping and sliding off. Although the formula is lovely enough I think for the most part I'm quite in love with the two shades available.

Sunset Bronze is a delightful shimmering cocktail of brown and gold and Sunset Coral is a sweet pop of coral minus shimmer. Sunset Bronze is ideal for pairing up with a bronze look and has enough glitz to make lips look glossy, full, and sparkly. Sunset Coral is pretty much a matte liquid paint minus shimmer or sparkle of any kind but this doesn't take away from it's appeal as the shade is quite a nice pop of coral that goes well with fresh, peachy cheeks (might the Muse suggest pairing it up with Super Orgasm).

Note: I'm wearing Gold Rush on my eyes from my earlier review of the new Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Shadows.

Clarins Instant Sun Light Lip Balm is well worth checking out and Muse Approved for purchase. Loving these and most definitely a top pick for super, glossy Summer lips this season!


Available now from Clarins.

Hey Izzy,

Welcome back from your vacation! *HUGS* Missed reading your new posts while you were away. You're seriously tempting me into checking Clarins, even though I'm already addicted to so many brands ;-p

Hey, would it be possible for you to do close-up shots of your lips for reviews of lip products, please? The reason is that your FOTD pics are lovely but most of the light in the shot is on the upper half of your face and the lower half of your face appears to be in the shadow.

OOOO! So glad you like these Muse, I have a beautiful red one & I completely adore it! Smells like cherries.. and I don't need a ton of Carmex when I use it too.
The printing on the tube does rub off really easily though, I've only had mine two months and it's all come off so I can't tell what shade it is, boo hoo.
Love you Muse!
