Lip products are vastly becoming my favourite makeup item to wear and buy, I seem to be steering away from base products and find myself always gazing at more lip products. My lipstick collection has grown quite a lot in the past year and when these gorgeous new Joli Rouge lipsticks popped though my letterbox along with two brand new lip liners I couldn’t wait to try them on! Clarins has revamped the Joli Rouge lipsticks with a new moisture enriched formula and a whole spectrum of colours to suit every mood. I hadn’t actually tried the old formula but I was delighted to try the new because it’s so moisturising and gentle on the lips.
There are 25 new shades to choose from ranging from perfect nudes to deep berry tones oh and for the Summer shade lovers there are some bright pinks, corals and reds too. Clarins have really thought about every mood and every skin tone with this lipstick collection and I’m so excited about it. The colour intensity of these lipsticks is pretty fab although I’m not sure it works for all shades to be honest, I really love the formula when using the bright and lighter shades but when it comes to the dark plums it can be a little slippy and go a little patchy on the lips so an application tip for the dark shades would be to apply a thin layer, blot with tissue, apply again then blot for the best finish. Other than that the finish is actually really lovely and a lot of the shades I have been wearing with most of my daytime looks.
Overall I’d say these lipsticks are perfect for every season, I’d definitely stock up on some soon because they are so utterly moisturising and are just perfect for those that suffer with dry lips in the winter these will keep your lips fully nourished, protected and gorgeous! They can be worn quite sheer or built up for that extra umph and I really love the glossy finish too.
Now let’s move onto the lip liners, ah the lip liners! Anyone struggle finding their perfect nude liner, I know I have but fear no more because Clarins have just brought out 4 new shades of the liners that have been designed to compliment any lip shade you choose to wear and suit your skin tone at the same time. The 4 shades are; 01 Nude Fair for fair skin, 02 Nude Beige for medium skin with a gold undertone, 03 Nude Rose for medium skin with a pink undertone and 04 Nude Mocha for darker skin tones. You don’t have to limit yourself by just going for the shade that is meant for your skin tone either, each and every colour is really gorgeous and the formula is a dream super creamy yet stays put. I’m super in love with these liners they are not only long lasting but so easy to work with!
