Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Red Paprika Review and Swatches
Since we were talking about lipsticks yesterday, I thought that’d be a good idea to share about the lipstick which is a part of Clarins’ Autumn collection.
I was sent Rouge Eclat in the shade 22 Red Paprika (there is also one called 21 Tawny Rose).
Clarins lip products are fantastic, and Rouge Eclat is not an exception. It feels amazing on the lips, almost like a lip balm but with an intense colour. According to the brand, it protects against dehydration, and boosts collagen. And in reality Rouge Eclat one of those lipsticks that feel comfortable on and stay on nicely, without any drying.
My friend who is not a lipstick wearer who tried this lipstick was impressed that the formula makes it really easy to apply the product as it glides on and doesn’t make a mess.
One more thing that I personally like is a nice “signature Clarins” scent.
As for the shade, Red Paprika is autumn in a tube, colour wise. It is a nice orangy red, warm and “cozy”, if I could say so about a lipstick. It makes me feel about sweaters, scarf and nice coats.
I would also say that it is a great shade for those girls that are scared of red. My other girlfriend who always tells me that she’d never wear a red lip had to agree that even she could rock it. Yes, I made her put it on, too bad she was too shy to let me share her photo here…
[And, yes, there was that “I told you so!” when she said that it looks good on her].
So, if you are a looking for a warm, orange-based red with a comfortable formula – this is the one!
