Clarins Coral Tulip Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss

Clarins Coral Tulip Gloss Prodige Lipgloss is one of two new shades that launched with the Clarins Opalescence Spring 2014 Collection. I personally love coral anything for Spring (and Summer) and there are plenty of delicious shades of it popping up with Spring.

Take a look at Coral Tulip.

Clarins Coral Tulip Gloss Prodige Lipgloss is a bright orange-y shimmering coral shade. Honestly, my lips swatches do not do it justice as in a certain light it gives off this very pretty shimmering reflective of orange on my lips!

I think the thing I like most about Clarins Gloss Prodige Lipgloss is the fact they aren’t a sheerer gloss. These typically have a nice bit of color to them! I wouldn’t call Coral Tulip fully opaque but it does give a fairly nice bit of color.

The gloss formula is fairly thick but has a lightweight feel on lips that gives a shiny finish. This has a light, berry-like flavor that’s quite subtle. I find the wear is good for around three to four hours without eating or drinking.

As a proper fan of Clarins Gloss Prodige Lipgloss I’m happy to see new shades popping up for Spring!

Available now at Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com.

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.

    Ugh I am SUCH a spaz for coral right now. I can NOT get enough of it for my lips and cheeks right now…

  • Ashley

    This color is so pretty! Perfect for spring and summer! I want! My favorite lip gloss color from them that I have yet to buy is called Papaya I love that color!

  • Susannah

    This lip gloss looks great on you, dear Muse. I have so many tubes of lip gloss that I hardly ever use, so I am reluctant to try another. I am 50+ and anything too goopy looks like I am “mutton trying to look like lamb.” In other words, faintly ridiculous.

    Laura Mercier’s Lip Glace and NYX Butter Gloss (bought on your recommendation!) are the only glosses I can wear. They both add just a bit of shine without looking like an oil slick.

    Is this formulation similar to those?

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks misses! awww…..!!!!!!!!!!! lol I’m not 50+ but even I get the weird gooey look with too thick a formula! I LOVE Lip Glace and ps you’ll be happy to know tonight I have a post scheduled about, drum roll, 13 new shades!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D It’s not like Butter Gloss but it does have the same thickness as Lip Glace but with a little bit more of a plushier feel!

    Coral is my favorite color right now. Coral on my eyes, cheeks, lips you name it. This color looks really pretty and I like the Clarins lip gloss so I guess I will have to check this shade out.
    On a different note the Milani Powder Rose Blush in Coral Cove looks amazing. I was able to get three of the colors at my walgreens but coral cove was sold out! I am on a hunt to find it lol.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh god I want that one too GOOD luck finding! Try out the new Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge too! Gorgeous bright coral 😀 has a nice orange-y base too! Such a great Summer shade!

      • Lucy

        Did you order the Milani blushes? Thanks I might need luck, that coral was sold out at two Walgreens so far.

        That Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge looks sooooo pretty. I think I might order it during the FAF event. And the shimmer brick in Nectar too.

        • Isabella Muse

          I just got press samples of them lucy and will review shortly 😀 I hope you find them! I believe all are in stock online. Did you get the rouge? I hope so it is gorgeous!

  • Susannah

    I can’t wait to read your review of Laura Mercier’s new Lip Glace colors. I currently have two of her tubes, so I’ll hold off on buying for a while. One is a muted coral color (a tube given to me free as a sample from the Mercier lady at Saks — one of the benefits of buying beauty products at dept stores — plenty of samples and I am not shy about asking,) the other a muted rose purchased at Sephora. Love them both!

    • Isabella Muse
