When a selection of Clarins’ new Joli Rouge lipsticks came through the door a week or so ago, the first shade my eye went to was ‘Joli Rouge.’ It’s the definition of a perfect red – a bright, clear shade which just aches to be worn!
Even though I tend to plump for natural and nude tones when it comes to lipstick, I am absolutely in love with 742 Joli Rouge. It’s the exact colour of Clarins packaging, and it’s such a pretty way to wear colour now that we’re squarely in Autumn. The new formula of the Joli Rouge lipstick is an absolute dream – it’s lightweight and feels more like a balm to apply, so the colour applies smoothly and evenly. Thanks to the dreamy texture, the colour is easy to build up, and the lipstick never feels drying to wear. Instead, the subtle sheen is super flattering, I got three hours of wear before I needed to reapply.
