Review: Clarins Rouge Eclat - Satin Finish Age Defying Lipstick
Took a break from matte liquid lipsticks, and tried out Clarins' new shades of their Rouge Eclat line! I'm already obsessed, as they're incredibly creamy and also have anti-ageing properties to nourish and restore smoothness to the lips. My lips can get pretty dry from all the matte lip stains I wear, so it's refreshing for them to feel so supple. Now onto a quick review of the 4 shades I got!
Swatches (left to right): 23 Hot Rose, 24 Pink Cherry, 25 Pink Blossom, 26 Rose Praline
23 Hot Rose - This is a soft pink that pairs well with any skin tone and simply brightens up your complexion. It's for the everyday, basic gal that wants a subtle pop of colour, without looking like she's trying.
24 Pink Cherry - If y'all know me, you know I'm not a fan of pinkish reds so this wasn't my favourite shade. However, for those that want to rock a red lip but feel it's too bold for everyday, this is a great alternative!
25 Pink Blossom - Barbie would definitely approve this shade, and it'd leave Ken wondering why they ever broke up in the first place! I've been searching for the perfect baby pink for awhile, and I think I've finally found it! It's the right balance of pop, without it being too fluorescent.
26 Rose Praline - This shade is undoubtedly my absolute favourite. The neutrality makes it easy to wear daily, and that's exactly what I've been doing! Because the texture is so smooth and supple, it feels no different than wearing Vaseline. 11/10 would recommend!
So what were my thoughts overall?
Wearability: About 4-5 hours
Transfer: Yes, but less in comparison to other satin lipsticks
Coverage: Sheer to moderate - Great for layering!
Price: $28 CDN
Overall: If you're looking for an everyday, moisturising lipstick with minimal transfer, this is for you! The pleasant, fruity scent is also an added bonus.
