Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in Jaipur and Delh Review and Lip Swaches

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balms are some of my favourites and I have almost finished the two shades that I have.

I’ve actually got two summer 2012 shades from the brand to show you. These are  Jaipur and Delhi.

I would describe Jaipur as a bright pinkish coral and Jaipur as a brownish nude, both shades have gold shimmer which looks beautiful in the sunshine.

These products are very well pigmented as for the balms. Plus, being the balms, they are moisturizing and feel amazing on the lips, I can’t think of a gloss that feels the same way. Colour Quench Lip Balms have a pretty thick texture and some may find them a bit sticky but I, as you may remember,

This is the only Anna Sui product that I have tried but I love it so much that may just call this gloss in 001 my favourite gloss of 2011!

Here is a close up of the glosses.

I have heard so many raves about both, especially about the Instant Lip Perfector and now I can see why. When I tied this gloss for the first time my lips were very dry and chapped but after just several minutes they looked and felt much better! It was actually hard to believe. The gloss has a delicious scent and  a beautiful formula. The colour is  sheer and delicate, perfect for an every day use.

These are definitely in my top products now. And now I also want the shades #2  Apricot Shimmer.

As for the  Quench Lip Balm, it is  a
