Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil Review!

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

Hi everyone!  I hope your weekend was great. 🙂

Since I’m currently obsessed with the Lancome Juicy Shaker, lip oils have recently found themselves on my radar. With summer sometimes calling for a lighter lip, I decided to check out a lip oil mentioned by one of my favorite bloggers, Stashy on Stash Matters. (Go follow her blog-you won’t be disappointed!)

Let’s take a look at what I thought about this luxe lip treatment!

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil 

Described as, a “revolutionary formula—rich in effective plant ingredients— [that] was inspired by Clarins’ best-selling Face and Body Treatment Oils. This gel-like non-sticky oil with sheer color nourishes and enhances lips with high shine.”

Pros 

Moisturizing

Long-lasting power

Light-weight-doesn’t feel heavy

No over-powering scent

Cons 

Pricey

Made my lips burn

Limited color choices

Overall: I really wanted to love this lip oil but unfortunately, it didn’t work for me.  After wearing this for about 2 hours, I noticed that my lips felt raw and had a burning sensation.  I stopped using this for about two days and the burning sensation went away.  The moment I tried it on again though, my lips had the same raw feeling and any lip product I applied after it felt stingy.  Aside from this issue, I did like how moisturizing it felt when I applied it and although it has a thicker consistency, it did not feel heavy at all.  I purchased the color Honey, which goes on clear and I figured I can use it underneath or over different lipsticks.  They also have a raspberry and red shade if you’re looking to add a wash of color.

Have you tried this lip oil or do you have any other lip oil recommendations? Comment below!

  1. Wowee, you’re quite with the review! I just took pictures of this one, along with other lip oils I’ve been wearing! 😛
    But, so sad this didn’t agree with you! What ingredient do you think was the culprit? I just looked it up and it’s mainly silicones, jojoba oil, hazel seed oil sunflower oil… and hmm rosemary, maybe that’s the culprit! I understand people can be senstive to it.

    • Haha, well I couldn’t wear it for too long hence why I was able to put up the review faster. I’m bummed this didn’t agree with me either. I’m actually not sure what ingredient is to blame. Rosemary might be it because I’ve had a reaction to the SuperGoop Rosemary makeup/sunscreen setting spray. Oh well. Maybe the Sephora or YSL one will work better for me.

    • Me too. 😦 And no, it’s not a dumb question at all Chanelle! Lip oils are supposed to be a more hydrating and nourishing treatment but most of them have a lighter feel to them than what you would expect. They’re actually quite interesting although not super long lasting. 🙂
