Launched in January, the new Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick from Clarins offers a combination of a lip balm with a sheer lip colour in one. The lipstick provides moisture and enhances lips with a subtle shine and sheer finish. It is available in 12 sheer pink, peach and nude shades. I went for Watermelon, which is one of the brighter coral shades.
Clarins is fast becoming one of my favourite brands and I love it even more with every product I try. Some of my current makeup favourites are the Everlasting + Foundation, lip balm, and BB Cream. I am also a huge fan of the anti-pollution cleansing cream and liquid facial tanner. Part of the reason their makeup is so great is because they combine Clarins' skincare expertise, so the products look after your skin at the same time.
The packaging of this lipstick is very luxurious and glamorous, I love the sleek gold tubes. My favourite thing by far though is the formula. I often get dry chapped lips so sometimes lipstick is not an option for me, but these lipsticks are extremely comforting and make my lips look healthy and shiny. Not quite a lipstick, but not quite a gloss, these are ideal for everyday wear and perfect if you prefer the natural/minimal look.
They are available online and from all Clarins counters for £19.50.
