Clarins Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Dontcha just love glosses that promise and deliver the world to your mouth? Sheer glosses are lovely but I’m ever so delighted when a gloss turns into so much more.

That’s why Clarins Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss is my new flavor of the moment.

Check ’em!

Eight shades Clarins Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss have popped up for Spring 2012 that are sure to thrill you with their formula.

These lip plumping (and lip loving) glosses have a shiny finish with a long wearing formula that leaves my lips looking smoother and fuller. Housed in the newer, elegant Clarins packaging (Clarins went from silver compacts/embellishments to gold) these are quite an elegant little piece of makeup.

The glosses are fairly thick but have a feather light feel on lips and impart a lovely shine with a full color pay off. That’s the key here, “full color payoff”. Formula isn’t only beautifully wearing on lips but the pigmentation is absolutely something to get excited about as the shades all drench lips in rich, intense color so what you see in the tube is what you’ll get on your lips. The glosses have a light, berry flavor that just adds to the joy. The taste and scent is subtle but you never know if you’re sensitive to these types of things!



(Candy and Raspberry)

Like I said above, sheer glosses are a treat but it’s ever so delightful when you run across a gloss with such great color pay off. My only issue? The lack of shades, eight isn’t nearly enough. Can I have some more please?

I’ll have a revised review of shades I purchased from my local counters soon, stay tuned.

Very Muse Approved for purchase.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Ha! These are the 2 colors I got. I love these so much, they are great glosses and those colors are fantastic and wearable with just the right amount of shimmer. I also hope they come out with more shades! I’m glad to hear that they are a permanent part of the collection, as they are fantastic and I can see myself possibly rebuying them in the future, since I actually use these quite a bit.

        Maybe I’ll swatch the other colors just in case next time I go to Nordstrom ;). I do really love them! Though really these 2, Raspberry and Candy are just perfect…but I am a true lip product fanatic so any other colors I can wear I want!

    Oh geez the last thing I NEED is another gloss but I think I HAVE to have one! Too bad papaya is out of stock already.
