How was your weekend? How did you spend it?
I spent mine (my Saturday at least) doing some quite intensive retail therapy! I took a trip up to Manchester to the Trafford Centre mall for a mooch about and quite few nice things caught my eye… 😉
Two of the things I bought were Claris Natural Lip Perfectors from the make-up department in John Lewis.
Clarins is somewhere I have only started shopping at since October last year as I don’t really branch out with my make-up too much. I was on a flight to Cyprus and a Clarins shop assistant gave me a free test bag of items to try. One of the items that was in the bag was a lip perfector and…long story short I’ve been obsessed ever since.
The one I originally got on my flight was a clear perfector that I have been blending with my lipsticks to make a more subtle lip stick look. On Saturday I branched out and bought two pigmented perfectors and I think they look great!! One is a light red and the other a subtle pink colour – I’m wearing the red one above.
The reason I love these so much is because they have a rough sort of lip brush (poor description I’m so sorry) so that when you apply the product it gets rid of all the dry skin/imperfections on your lips making them look smooth and feel great. I also love how the colours look really natural and not over powering like lipstick often does.
In the pictures above the only make-up I have on my face is the lip perfector! And I think it looks so natural! I can NEVER wear a lipstick without a modest face of make-up, as it think it looks a bit weird? But this I think looks great :).
I also think the packaging is so chic and cute! I’m going to be buying these again in the future for sure. //
