Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick in Watermelon Review and Lip Swatches

I have recently written about the Clarins’ gloss in Water Lily from the Spring collection  and today I want to tell you about the lipstick from the same collection.

It is Joli Rouge Brilliant Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick  in Watermelon and it’s the lighter one out of two.

As the name suggests, this lipstick gives a sheer  and shiny coverage.  Although it is sheer, you still get a pop of pink which would look great with a fresh Spring makeup. Or will help to brighten up the dull winter face 😉

This lipstick contains a lot of silver micro shimmer particles but it doesn’t look over the top on the lips, in fact, it does give a shiny and glossy effect.

It is  not a

Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Clarins lip balms/glosses are among my favourites and I rate them highly!

I have actually already written about all of the ranges the brand has, except the Prodige Gloss.

You can read about  Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms, Colour Quench Lip Balms and my favourite Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.

So now it’s time for  Gloss Prodige (£15.50) and it’s the shade from the Spring 2013 collection which is called Water Lily.

As all other Clarins glosses, this one is very “balmy”, it feels very hydrating (the formula contains hyaluronic acid) and moisturizing on the lips, without being too heavy or sticky. I find that such formula/texture is perfect for cold weather, as it helps to keep my lips in a good condition.

Prodige Gloss comes in a beautiful package, very high-end, and has a sponge applicator that bends.  This gloss has a strong fruity scent, which I personally like, but some may not.   It is written that it’s blackberry and

Clarins Gorgeous Getaways Face and Body Essentials

I wanted to get Clarins’ Gorgeous Getaways Face and Body Essentials  (£44.10) for some time now. The brand brought it out last year and they brought it out this year, as well.  So I did buy it finally and it was my first beauty purchase of 2013!

This is a great way to try the brand and save a lot of money. Or if you are already a fan of Clarins, and I am, a great way to stock up on your favourites.

I have already tried four  products out of six and have actually reviewed three out of four, so  you can see the links below.

Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream Review. Rave

My skin is very dry and in winter I have to use a cream or butter (yes, the lotion is not enough) at least once a day.

I have tried several Clarins body moisturisers over years and their Extra-Firming Body Cream is my absolutely favourite. In fact, this is one of the best creams I have ever tried.

This is a rich cream, which is almost like a butter, but it doesn’t feel greasy or oily at all.  According to Clarins, the product should lift, tone and comfort, and it does.

My dry skin absorbs it pretty quixkly and doesn’t leave any residue. I personally really love the nice and subtle scent which would not conflict with your perfume.  Skin on my body feels very nourished,

Clarins Ombre Minerale Eye Shadows Review and Swatches

Clarins recently launched a new range of eye shadows ( £16/$20) in 16 shades which are divided into four groups.

I actually did get three eye shadows to show you, so here they are. I have: 01 White Sparkle Illuminator, 03 Petal and 16 Vibrant Violet.

Although these are not the shades that I would choose for myself, I do like all three a lot.

01 White Sparkle is a silver glittery eye shadow which I personally use all over the lid with an eye liner and lots of mascara. It can be also used on top of other  eye shadows. This is a great shade for Christmas actually.

 03 Petal is a very beautiful  satin baby pink that is a great all-over-the-lid shade, looks great paired with a dark shade in the outer corner. I think such shade would also look great on mature ladies.

16 Vibrant Violet  is an iridescent violet with blue micro shimmer. It reminds me of the violet from this Clarins palette, so if you have missed it, you may want to pick up this eye shadow.
