On paper, there are a couple things that are intimidating about Clarins' Instant Comfort Lip Oil in the shade Candy. In the bottle, it's a shockingly-bright pink, a color that most people would shy away from in favor of a tamer red or subtle nude on any makeup counter. It's also a lip oil, which is not a type of product that is necessarily new to market, but is definitely one that has been forgone recently in favor of glosses and or lipsticks.

However, upon trying on the oil itself, these fears are dispelled immediately. The color remains pink, but reacts to the PH of your lips in order to create a color that's personalized to you. The oil formula makes it more versatile and nourishing than a gloss, although it's still shiny enough to rival the most slick of glosses. It can be used with other lip products as well, as both a hydrating base coat under, and a lip topper over.

The Clarins Instant Comfort Lip Oil in Candy is the kind of product you want to keep in your bag no matter what. It's perfect for a beach day or a no-makeup-makeup day, but equally perfect for when you have the rest of your face done in full. When slicked on, the refreshing oil revitalizes lips with a pouty burst of color—making it an ideal choice for every makeup bag we own and the remainder of summer.
