I’ve spoken about this lip product briefly before here, but I thought it was aout time for a revisited blog post. The ILNLP (can I call it that for short?!) is the perfect lipgloss for lipgloss haters. 

The applicator is a a soft sponge that the gel-like product squeezes out of and it makes it easy to apply to your lips. It feels like a lip balm, but looks like a lip gloss and there is NO sign of any stickyness.  I have two colours, 01 and 02. My favourite is 02 which is a peachy nude that pretty much matches my lip colour. 01 is more of a pinky tone, which I also really like and it’s an easy way for me to where pinky shades that I normally can’t wear. 

I absolutely love these and although they are quite pricey, they can be worn on their own or with a lipstick so they’re pretty useful things to have in your collection. I’m a fan. 

Have you tried the Clarins ILNLP before? (Is the nickname catching yet??)

    I’ve been trying to stop myself from buying these ever since they showed up on the blogosphere!

    I love the look of Rose Shimmer x

  5. Jet Shanahan says:

    Ooo these both look really nice. I like the idea of there being no stickiness.

  6. Love the one in ‘rose shimmer’! such a pretty colour for the spring and summer!! πŸ™‚ ♥

  7. I love the 02 Apricot Shimmer shade although both look lovely on you Lily. I like the idea of a lip gloss that isn’t sticky, there’s nothing worse than a large gust of wind and the next thing you know your hair is stuck to your lip gloss.

    I’ve been toying with the idea of buying one of these for a while now, especially as it’s not a gooey gloss. The difficult decision is always which shade to go for but I really like both of them on you.

    I love them both and they make your lips feel like soft little pillows!! xx

    I have this in apricot shimmer and although I do like it, it barely shows up on my lips. It doesn’t have the same effect as it has on yours, probably because my lips aren’t very pigmented. I do want to try the rose one!

  12. Hannah says:

    The apricot colour is so pretty! I’ll have to try this out because I hate sticky lip gloss, especially when it’s windy and it plasters my hair to my mouth!



  13. They look so pretty! Such lovely colours xx


  14. Rachel says:

  15. I cannot see much colour difference but i’ve tried these products and its the smell that does it for me!? white choc!?


  16. Louise Lam says:

    Oh I hate lipgloss because of it’s stickiness but maybe I’ll try this! If it feels like a lip balm then that will be interesting. The colours look great though πŸ™‚

    Oh very tempted to try these. The finish is lovely

  19. This looks beautiful! Think i may purchase these!

  20. hannah maggs says:

    ooooh these sound lovely. nothing worse than a sticky lipglodd so its great there were no sign of that. i like the peachy looking one πŸ™‚ x

  21. These end up very milky on my lips, but the softness I feel after the product is gone is so worth it! I usually layer over No7 Nude lipliner and it looks less translucent.

  22. Amelia says:

    These remind me so much of the Korres lip butter glazes, which could also be described as lip glosses for lip gloss haters πŸ˜‰

  23. These look stunning! I’m not a real lipgloss fan, but these look like ones to try out x

    I love the look of these, I wonder if there are any dupes…?
