Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm (limited edition)

We’ve been fans of these jelly-like lip balms since they launched - and now they’re popping up in new shades as a limited edition for one season only. Deliciously lip-caring, they glide on so smoothly, slicking lips with a hint of rose, gold-shot plum, berry or coral-y mandarin.

The transparent finish is just perfect for spring (and impending summer), when conventional creamy lipsticks look suddenly all wrong, in the brighter light.

Sheer bliss, in fact.
