Dressed in a lightweight shiny gold packaging, filled with 100% plant waxes including mimosa, jojoba, and sunflower, these lipsticks come from the luxury French beauty house of Clarins. Being a loyal fan of its Rouge Prodige lipsticks, I’m excited to see the house launch the first anti-aging lipstick, Rouge Eclat Satin Finish.
Glamorous as always, the carton box is in Clarin’s signature red with gold and white letters. With a total of 15 brilliant shades to choose from, today we’ll present 3 of them, #09 Juicy Clementine, #10 Pink Fuchsia and #15 Nude Caramel. Each of them is from a different color family, orange, pink and nude.
A creamy, age-defying texture with a luminous, satin finish. Smoothes and promotes more beautiful-looking lips. The Nutri-Youth Complex delivers rich, nourishing benefits and promotes comfortable-feeling lips. Day after day, lips are ideally replenished and visibly more youthful-looking.
So we’ve been talking about the packaging and everything else but the lipsticks themselves, now let’s take a look at these true beauties. The tube is slim and the tip is angled for maximum control and easy application. Upon taking off the cap, immediately your nose is greeted by a subtle yet pleasant fruity floral scent. I can’t quite decipher what exactly the scent is, but it’s sweet.
Here’s the swatch of the shades with just one swipe, from left to right are, Juicy Clementine, Pink Fuchsia and Nude Caramel. The texture of these lipsticks are silky smooth, they glide on effortlessly. Color is so vibrant and ultra pigmented, it’s quite amazing for such a creamy formula. Because normally when a lipstick is so rich and creamy, the color payoff will sacrifice somehow. But it isn’t happening with these Clarin’s lipsticks. Not only are they comfortable to wear, but they’re really long lasting as well. I’ve had 3 to 4 hours wear time without the need of re-applying. I love how radiant and luscious they look, making my lips fuller and healthier. And they didn’t dry out my lips at all. Even at the end of the day when I take it off, my lips are still in great shape, no peeling, no flaking.
Clarins Rouge Eclat are truly fabulous. While being almost weightless on the lips, the color is so intense and strikingly gorgeous. They are more luminous than your normal satin finish lipsticks, and over the time they leave a lovely stain after the color fades off. With $26 a pop, I think they’re worth every penny. The anti-aging benefit is even better because it doubles up as a lip balm. If you haven’t tried these yet, you really should.
