I swatched this twice on Sunday, once in Boots and then once in Debenhams. And then I willingly caved, but only after thinking twice and remembering Debenhams were offering 10% off all beauty and I also had a £5 off thingy on my BeautyCard... making this a steal at £10.40! That's instead of £18. I've heard rants and raves about this product and once the "I've gotta have it because she has it" thought was planted in my head I had know other choice but to make a purchase.
The product Ooh the smell, it's sweet as you'd expect and like sweet, sweet candy floss. Sticky? Nah, it doesn't feel like your standard gloss, it has movement and doesn't gum your top lip to the bottom. Staying power? It has it... once you've slicked this on to your pout it is staying right there. Ooh and does it look even better on top of your favourite nude lipstick, you never have an excuse to not be wearing this gloss 24/7. I can see this tube lasting a while and becoming the most battered item at the bottom of my make up bag.
Am I as addicted as everyone else? Yes, as predicted I fell in love. It's true what they say, it is your lips, just better. Therefore you are topping it up at every opportunity.
I hear there is a dupe No7 do a dupe version at better than half the price, No7 BB Lips at £8.50. You know Boots are always giving out them pounds off No7 products with your receipts so that makes the dupe maybe worth a look.
Would I pay £18 for it? I'd hold out for another Debenhams discount. These roll around probably once a month or so, pinch your pennies. But yes I would repurchase, again and again and again... wider colour range need though. Collect your Boots points, find it cheaper online or grab a treat, either way spoil yourself to this Clarins must have.
