It really does feel like Autumn is on the way. Starbucks is already selling pumpkin spice lattes, and the temperatures have already taken a downturn. I don’t mind though, it’s probably my favourite season, as I get to dig out my cashmere sweaters and scarves and feel snuggy-warm day and night.
As Autumn gets all jewel-toned, I like to change up my makeup a little. My go-to pinky nude lips seem a little blah when everything is golden, so when I saw Clarins’ new Tawny Rose Rouge Eclat, released as part of their stunning Fall collection, I just knew I had to try it!
Packaged in Clarin’s signature glossy golden packaging, the Rouge Eclat lipsticks are really a thing of beauty. Inside the tube the lipstick is angled, so application without a lip brush is an absolute breeze! The formula itself is absolutely beautiful – it feels nourishing to wear thanks to the inclusion of Vitamin E as well as 100% plant waxes including mimosa, jojoba and sunflower provide instant comfort to dehydrated lips.
21 Tawny Rose is the most beautiful amplified nude, which is just perfect for wearing right now. The brown undertones of the lipstick means it feels both very of the moment as well as classically pretty. The formula is buttery smooth and just glides on. I apply straight from the bullet, and the colour applies evenly and smoothly. The colour payoff is great – I easily get about three hours of wear before I feel the need to reapply.
Clarins Rouge Eclat 21 – Tawny Rose is priced at £19.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
