So a couple of weeks ago I was sent two lipsticks from the Clarins “Joli Rouge” range to try, along with some gorgeous natural coloured lipliners. I was super excited to try these out because I know that the quality is really good – I wore one of these lippies on my wedding day!
Joli Rouge Lipsticks
First up is this beautiful light pink colour 715 Candy Rose which as you can see is the perfect shade of pink with a light shimmer to it. I love this pink and have wore it endlessly since I got it as it’s a perfect daytime colour and it looks really lovely on.
Next is the amazingly fab 742 Jolie Rouge which is the ultimate in luxurious red lippies! I LOVED this one, apart from the fact that it’s so comfortable to wear (I’ll get to that more in a bit) it really packs a punch and I love how it looks on.
In the whole collection there are a whopping 25 shades to choose from so you are bound to find the right colour for you. These lipsticks are so easy to wear, they glide on effortlessly for quick easy application and you get maximum colour with just the one swipe. Plus they are super moisturising so feel really comfortable on and have the shiny finish of a gloss rather than a lipstick which I love. They lasted well on me, they don’t claim to be a long lasting lipstick so you do have to top up but I found myself doing that through the day anyway as they felt so nice on. Plus they smell really fruity, like berries! I always want my lip products to smell good so that’s a bonus! 🙂 Oh and I’m also loving the shiny gold packaging which makes them look really stylish in your makeup bag 😉
They are available for €22 in all Clarins outlets including larger Boots stores and although that may seem pricey, they are well worth it. As I said, I wore one of these lipsticks for my wedding and they are just perfect for that!
Now, while we’re here, can we also talk about these fab lipliners from the same range which are actually designed to match your own skintone rather than the actual colour of the lipstick you are wearing, how clever is that?!
It makes total sense to match your natural lip colour rather than your lipstick as you’ll get the most natural result and you can even slightly overdraw your own lipline for a fuller lip without looking like Kylie Jenner gone wrong!
There are 4 shades in total and they are designed to go with any lipstick shade you choose so you just buy the one that suits you. The formulation on these are super smooth and blendable and they don’t drag or bleed and look really natural. I totally love these and have been using them a lot on my clients with all colours of lipsticks and they’re worked brilliant. These are priced at €17.50 and again available from all Clarins outlets including larger Boots stores.
What do you think of these? Will you be trying them out? Let me know 🙂
