Catrice Ultimate Lip Glow (Clarins dupe)

Sunday 23 March 2014

Ultimate Lip Glow €5.60*

I don’t think I’ve done a dupe post before, so today’s post is a little different. Last month when I was at the Catrice event, I noticed their new Ultimate Lip Glow and as soon as I picked it up, I know it was a dupe for Clarins Crystal Balm.

 If you haven’t heard of crystal balms/lip glow it’s basically a solid see-through balm in the shape of a lipstick, the colour is very sheer and gives you a ‘your lips but better’ look.

Now there two products are basically identical from the packing to the formula and results. the only different is the Clarins crystal balm contain a little extra colour in the centre. Not to mention the Catrice version is less than half the price (When writing this post it Clarins Crystal Balms appear to be now discontinued in Europe)

If you loved the Crystal balms or are looking for a dupe, I highly suggest you check out the Catrice Ultimate Lip Glow. You can find out more about Catrice on their Facebook page.

  1. I've never heard of crystal balms before but these do look really pretty! I also love how as you said you can see through them but it's still in a lipstick form xxx
