New In Beauty : Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick

It’s big news, lipstick lovers, because have done the unthinkable – they’ve gone and played around with their infamous Joli Rouge lipsticks, revamping the formula…. and guess what? They’re incredible. Often when a brand plays around too much with an already incredible product, the new launches are just ‘different’ and not ‘better’. They play just for the sake of playing (plus, how fun must it be being a chemist in a beauty laboratory! I’d forever be creating new concoctions!) and I didn’t think that there was much to be improved on on the Clarins Joli Rouge lipsticks. OK, maybe an extra shade or two might have helped, but Clarins have gone all out, and bought out 25 new shades, just in time for Autumn.

It’s been over a year since I first reported on the lipsticks (see my first review here) and since then they’ve become the lipsticks that I reach for mostly in the cooler months, when my lips are in need of some nourishment as well as a blast of colour. The new formula is even more moisture-enriched, so you can toss out your balms – because with organic marsh samphire extract and mango oil ingredients, these lippies will give you smooth, soft and nourished lips as well as a high shine, highly pigmented colour. 
With a scrumptious red berry scent, it does take a lot of willpower not to want to lick your lips constantly, but the Joli Rouge is a pleasure to apply so reapplication is never a chore. The tip seems to snugly fit the shape of your lips, with the point meaning you get a precise application every time. The beautiful gold casing ( much more beautiful than the previous silver designs if you ask me ) is the final detail that gives these lipsticks a great big nod of approval from me!

As for the shade range, you’ll find everything from bright spring corals (701 Orange Fizz) through to deep autumnal tones (705 soft berry) as well as everyday dusky pinks – my current favourite lip style, such as the above – 751 Tea Rose.
