[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve tried both the clear and pink version of this balmy lip cover and despite the (crazy) price of £40 am a bit of a fan. Which is all very well for me to say when I didn’t shell out my own £40 but I have recently (this year, at least) bought the Clé de Peau lip gloss because it’s too nice not to have.
I think there has been an update since I got the clear version because there is now a red option which looks good for those that like a naunce of red rather than full on. This falls more into the lip care category than the lip colour category – using licorice extract, the aim is to improve lip condition over time with smoothing and hydrating.
The coral version is scented with orange blossom and honey (to be honest, I didn’t even notice that until I did some reading on the product) and it gives a very translucent, almost milky touch of coral colour. What I do like about this botanical oil infused balm is that it’s a barely there shade that brings a lot of luminosity to the lips and can be used under (or over) any other lip product. Without a doubt, it gives something more than any old gloss or balm in the light reflective department and is a texture enhancer, giving a glisteny, dewy lip that looks natural and fresh.
You can see how light it is in the swatch – I wish I’d had some sun on the day I took the pictures so you could see the glisten. Anyway, £40 for a balm stick is a big ask – definitely treat territory but a lovely one if you fancy it. It’s HERE, non affiliate HERE.
