Clarins Splendours Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel - Crystal Pink, photos, review

I've tormented you with photos of the stunning eyeshadow palette from the Clarins Splendours collection and today we're talking about one of the two Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gels from the collection.  Crystal Pink should really be called Crystal Red but we won't hold that against it.

Ok, so the first thing I thought of when I applied some to the back of my hand was that it totally reminded me of the syrup you get drizzled over your 99 ice cream.  Now I want one.  Mmm 99s are the best.  Anyway, I digress, back to the product.  This sheer lip gloss is gorgeous and I've been wearing it a lot since it was sent to me.  One layer of it gives a touch of colour to the lips but I love applying a second layer so that my lips look extra juicy and wet.  It's not sticky when you press your lips together, but you know that any bit of wind and your hair will stick to that quick smart, but those are the perils of lip glosses.  Will it stop me wearing them?  Not on your nelly.  Crystal Pink has a lovely fruity scent to it and feels really comfortable on the lips.

€20 is the damage and the stunning Splendours collection is on Clarins counters this month.  Seriously, it's the most gorgeous collection I've seen in ages and I'm totally buying the bronzer next....


  1. I hate this kind of texture on my lips but it looks gorgeous on you, and it looks way better than a standard lipgloss for people who are gloss fans!

  2. Thanks for the great post, I’m always looking for more inspiration for my journey to being much better at photography, thank you!

  3. Oh!!! You're absolutely my Clarins enabler! I bought, and loved the instant lip perfector on your review and I think I might have to add this to my wishlist now too!
