Guest Post with Not In These Shoes: Light Lips For Autumn

Hi lovelies, I’m Rebecca from Not In These Shoes (@notintheseshoes), Amanda kindly asked me if I wanted to guest post on her beautiful blog – which of course I accepted.  I wanted to share with you all two of my recent lip favourites (which are even handbag status!).

Not a typical autumn pick, but something that I haven’t been able to put down recently is these Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors. I have these in 05 Candy Shimmer, a lovely pink, and 06 Rosewood Shimmer, a brown nude.  They leave a lovely glossy, moisturising finish with the perfect amount of shimmer – don’t worry, you won’t look like you’ve been kissing glitter! 

These are definitely a lip gloss, rather than a liquid lipstick so even though they are reasonably pigmented, they aren’t opaque if this is what you were expecting. The longevity isn’t great, you definitely need to re-apply these regularly however this doesn’t bother me personally and I know not to wear these on days where I won’t have time to top up! I love the applicator of these as they’re super easy to apply with the sponge type applicator – and it minimises any mess!

I got these two in a set in Duty Free, and whist 05 isn’t a colour I would usually go for, it’s really grown on me and I love how it adds a girly edge to my make up. They do 6 colours in total, ranging from nudes, to browns, to peaches so there is definitely a colour for everyone. I will definitely be picking more of these up when they run out and will be trying out some of the other colours.

Have you tried these before?  What do you think? Xxx


  1. These are the two I have in full size! I have the 01 but gave it away as I'm just not too impressed with the colour but these two are LOVE

  2. These both look like lovely shades! I need to try these still.
