Clarins Crystal Coral // Review, Photos, Swatches

The 'Enchanted Summer' collection from Clarins is a very beautiful one, and one of the coolest designs comes into play with their Instant Smooth Crystal lip balms. I was kindly sent the shade Crystal Coral to play with, and will be showing you the balm today.
The packaging of all of Clarins' products are stellar, and the Crystal Lip Balms are no different. I love the sleek silver tube with accents that match the shade inside, and the base allows you to easily see which shade is which in your collection.
The core of this beautiful balm is a burst of colour, surrounded by a transparent jelly like lip balm. I am fascinated by the idea of transparency in stick form lip products, and I love that this leaves a juicy blood orange stain on my lips that can be worn sheer or built up to be similar to a lipstick in appearance. On the lips this feels like a cross between a balm (because of the light moisture) and a lipstick (because I can feel that I am wearing something)
Wearing Crystal Coral and Nars Orgasm on the cheeks.

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms retail for $34 AUD and are available from Myer and David Jones Australia wide, selected pharmacies as well as Adore Beauty.

Have you tried anything from the Clarins makeup line?
What do you think of the new Crystal lip colours?
*This product was sent for consideration, which does not affect my opinion of it. Honesty, always.


  1. What a phenomenal product experience! The dual layer has def. been done before, but the jelly-like effect looking in is so cool!

    1. @Dovey I am loving Clarins products lately :) I think the look of this is so cool!

  2. Out of curiosity is it difficult to get a clean line with these if the colour's surrounded like that?

    1. @Vita I've been wearing it as a stain, as though I've just been eating berries and they left colour behind if you know what I mean, so I haven't had too many problems with clean lines. When I build it up to opaque it needs to be moved around a bit to make sure all of it is even.

  3. Oh my goodness I love this!! The colour comes out nice and strong, but would suit me as I am not a lipstick fan really. ooohhh love it.
