Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick Review & Swatches
I’ve always been a very fond fan of Clarins Lipstick in any shape or form but the new Clarins Rouge Eclat takes that love to new levels. Introduced in fifteen shades for Spring 2013 these gorgeous lipsticks must ALL come home with me soon.
Vibrant color, a gorgeous moisturizing texture that slides onto lips like silk stockings, and an incredible wear make these a must have Spring addition to your makeup stash.
Let’s take a look.
I have my fav Clarins Lipsticks formulas but I can honestly say Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick has completely overshadowed them all! I love the texture of these and at $26 a pop they don’t come cheap but I do so swear they are well worth indulging in.
Juicy Clementine, Red White, Chocolate Rose
Clarins dubs them an age defying lipstick thanks to the moisturizing formula created with 100% Plant waxes such as mimosa, jojoba, and sunflower all of which contain skin fortifying ingredients to keep lips protected from dryness. They have a smooth, soft, buttery texture that glides onto lips beautifully leaving behind a full opaque finish in a single stroke. Never tugging, never dry, they produce a smooth appearance on lips with a rich color pay off. Outside of Asian brands these are some of the nicest lipsticks I’ve come across stateside and believe me I’ve tried plenty. The incredible texture is a cross between a full coverage lipstick and a high quality lip butter or balm with a lightweight feel. You wouldn’t expect the formula to be so weightless considering how much color each shade provides but they are light as air on lips.
The wear lasts anywhere from four to five hours without eating or drinking and as it fades it leaves behind a delicate flush of stained color. They called the finish satin but for me it’s more of a buttery cream with a high sheen finish that’s almost glossy on some levels. With such a moisturizing formula you wouldn’t expect pigment but indeed they pack a good deal of color. They most resemble L’Oreal’s Caresse Sticks but the texture is lighter and far more moisturizing.
If you’re looking for the crème de la crème in the lipstick world I highly recommend you check our Clarins Rouge Eclat. Moisturizing, soft, shiny, full color coverage, and a great wear time these lipsticks are NOT to be missed.
I urge you to check them out on counter soon.
I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do.
