Swatches (L-R): 03 Petal Pink, 18 Strawberry Sorbet, 20 Red Fuchsia, 16 Candy Rose, 17 Pink Magnolia, 19 Chestnut Brown, 11 Passion Red
Let me kick things off by saying these lipsticks have one of the best formulations I've ever tried. They feel so comfortable on the lips, just like a balm, and the luxurious, creamy shades glide on like butter.
They leave a slight glossy finish which makes my lips look plump and healthy, while also smoothing out the texture of my lips by glossing over fine lines. Plus when they fade, they do so evenly, so you're never left with that dreaded lipstick ring around your mouth!
As for the science-y bit, each lipstick protects against dehydration and boosts collagen thanks to Clarins' Nutri-Youth Complex, while the addition of Vitamin E and plant waxes protect against free radicals while adding moisture.
If you're the kind of girl who loves lipstick but needs a product that feels lightweight and hydrating, you HAVE to try these. The colour selection is totally dreamy too; my favourite is Strawberry Sorbet - it's the perfect my-lips-but-better nudey pink. I wear it almost everyday!
