'My Pink'

Last week I discovered a new product from Clarins that I became instantly obsessed with. It's their new Colour & Comfort Lip Balm crayon in 'My Pink'. This really took me by surprise, as I'm honestly totally bored of the lip crayon trend. There are great ones out there, but whenever I see any new launches, I tend to roll my eyes... just a little.

And that's what I did when a couple of these landed on my doorstep last week...


The coloured variants were nice, but the shade that really stood out was the one called 'my pink', a shade that adapts to your lips... nothing new in theory, but the formulation, scent and performance of this balm really blew me away.

It's super smooth and really soothing on the lips. It has a sweet, candy scent that I fell in love with instantly, and the shade really does show up on the lips. On me it's quite a deep, glossy, translucent-looking pink. I was instantly obsessed and have been using it almost every day since.

I also love the fact that the packaging isn't identical to all the other lip crayons out there... it's definitely sleeker. I love the gold caps. These balms are available now, priced at £18 each.

  2. These look incredible! I love your reviews Fleur, always so honest and real :) you are one of the people who's blogs have inspired me to start my own (endlessattraction.com), and I love that you have always stayed true to your own style of writing and products, even when you've been given things! xx

  3. The packaging looks stunning and it's really flattering on your lips. I like it because it makes a difference but it's not in your face! On a side note, i've just popped up a new vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6ubtpXm194

    Thanks Fleur! x x

  4. This looks gorgeous, I've also got so bored of the lip crayons (matte, glossy, whatever, it's just a new way of packaging a lipstick right?!) but if you say this one is worth checking out, I'll trust your judgment! xxx

  18. Color looks great! I'm also a bit bored by the crayon trend - but then again always excited when I see a new version. It's a love-hate thing I guess!

  37. I know what you mean by being bored with the lip crayon trend since new ones keep popping up from all brands drugstore and high-end! This looks like it would smell nice though so I'll definitely keep an eye out next time I'm by a Clarin's counter!

  49. I'm in love! I'm the same when i see a new lip crayon come out I naturally sigh they are mostly packed with glitter or so bold and matte that you would have to be very brave to wear. But from these swatches they look nice and glossy and give the right amount of color. Defiantly the next buy are all the other shades as glossy?

  72. I really like that shade, have you tried the Tarte one? That one is suppose to adapt to your lip color as well, just wondering if you were able to compare the two. That would be interesting because this one looks a bit more glossy than the Tarte.

  80. Ah, i'm utterly devastated. My husband took it upon himself to throw out some stuff I had lying about the bedroom. In one particular bag he picked up without looking in it!! (who does that). Was last weeks Boots haul which included two of these Clarins Lip Balm Crayons.. gutted , will have to go repurchase. This shade looks perfect for you. But then you always look flawless.

  81. Reminds me of the Dior Addict Lip glow - which I also luuuurv..but looks more peach on me. Love chubby stick packaging for almost anything but this one looks so pretty I could almost eat it!! Very pretty colour on you!
