Spring Collections are now being released all over the place in the makeup world and it’s all a little bit exciting. One of the most exciting releases for me (self confessed lipstick junkie) are the latest shades from the Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant collection. When the Joli Rouge range was re-launched back in August / September last year you may have seen my New Joli Rouge Lipstick post where I reviewed a selection of the re-vamped lippies; Honestly I think thats when I originally fell in love with the Joli Rouge range. Forget MAC Creamsheen, Joli Rouge are the ultimate buttery and nourishing lipsticks out there and I have to say they are always at the top of my go-to list now! The Spring colours are literally so pretty. When I think of Spring I always think of corals and peaches and pastel colours and Clarins have definitely incorporated the perfect shades into this collection. I am a complete heart-eyed emoji mess over these 5 colours and cannot wait to finish writing up this post so that I can get using these out in real life!
The Joli Rouge lipsticks are filled with Mango Oil to give the lips an instant soft, smooth and nourished feel and their new Shine Booster + complex gives a luminous sheen and makes them that little bit glossier. They’re honestly the nicest lipsticks that I have ever tried and the look that they give on the lips is just so nice. I’m usually more of a matte girl but these give the prettiest sheen without having to wear lipgloss and I am totally in love with them! The shades themselves are super pretty too; my personal favourite is number 30, Soft Berry as it is the perfect ‘your lips but better’ nude with a slightly deeper pink finish and I have been wearing it every day since these were popped through my door! I’m also a massive fan of 13, Cherry which is a really wearable pinky/red and 27, Hot Fuchsia which is a little more daring but something I can definitely see myself wearing on a night out in the spring!
This time around Clarins have also released a new Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base which is basically a primer for your lips, something that I have longed for, for quite some time now. The Acacia gum botanical pears (try saying that five times fast) smooths out wrinkles and keep the lips full of moisture along with the Jojoba, Sunflower and Mimosa was complex. This base has been something that since I’ve received I have used every time that I’ve worn lipstick; I’m a massive sucker for anything that keeps my lips smooth and crack-free and this base has shown some great results from using it so far. At £18 it is a bit on the pricey side, but I’ve tried a so-called lip primer from Topshop before for £5 and it definitely did not give such great results as this. It might not be at the top of everybody’s ‘must buy’ list but if you’ve got the money to spend and your lips are in desperate need of a little extra loving then this product is the one for you!
Have you tried Clarins Joli Rouge lipsticks before? Will you be picking up any of these Brilliant new shades?
