Lip of the Day: Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in Sweet Fig

This summer, Clarins will revamp the existing lineup of Colour Quench Lip Balm shades, introducing eight juicy new shades.  Sweet Fig is one of them - and it's instantly become my new favourite neutral shade.  It's pigmented enough that it covers the slight blueness around the outside of my lips, with a glossy, slightly shimmery finish.  The best thing about this product, though, is the texture - it's ultra silky, with a jelly like feel on the lips, and once the glossiness has worn off, it leaves the lips feeling gorgeously well moisturised.

On the topic is wear, this product is designed to last longer on the lips - and indeed, I find that the glossy finish lasts about an hour and a half, which is pretty good for something that's a silky soft balm as opposed to a sticky gloss.  Paired with a strong eye, this slightly pinkish neutral has become a firm favourite in my lipstick purse.

Available with the Clarins summer collection in June, Colour Quench Lip Balm will cost £15.  I'm rather tempted by Strawberry Sorbet, a bright mid pink, which looks pretty perfect for summer.
