clarins joli rouge lipstick- spicy cinnamon


It's a dismal day here complete with gray skies and blowing snow. It's making me want to crawl back into bed, watch a movie and take a nap. BUT, I won't, because I've one gem of a lipstick to show off today, in the form of Clarins Joli Rouge in Spicy Cinnamon. If there's anything better then a cozy, Sunday afternoon nap, it might just be a Joli Rouge lipstick! Read on!


This classic, creamy lipstick delivers stunning colour and silky-smooth shine. Formulated with the innovative extreme shine Maxi Lip Complex to help plump and hydrate for full, soft and supple lips. Deeply moisturizing and long-wearing with a fruity, floral scent, this lipstick feels amazing from the minute you apply it. - See more at: http://www.clarins.ca/Joli-Rouge-Lipstick/C050302006,en_CA,pd.html?dwvar_C050302006_color=700%20cedar%20red&start=2#sthash.rAl1a47r.dpuf

Introduced for Autumn/Winter 2013 as part of the Graphic Expression Collection, Spicy Cinnamon is one of three new shades added to Clarins Joli Rouge range. The shade screams Fall with it's brown-orange tone and golden shimmer. It's not the type of shade I thought would work for me, but the brick-red brown seems to flatter almost any skin tone and has been a shade I've reached for quite frequently lately.

While the shade is indeed gorgeous, it's the formula that really makes this an amazing lipstick. Like the autumnal hue, this is the perfect lipstick formulation for colder weather as it glides so flawlessly over lips regardless of their condition. This lipstick doesn't care if you've got dry lips, flaky chapped winter lips- it's smooth, pigmented self applies over it all with a hydrating, shiny finish and light fruity scent/taste that lasts for hours. The shimmer in this shade is visible, but delicate and somehow remains undetectable on lips- in other words no grittiness or overtly large glitter.

Overall, I am a new fan of the Joli Rouge formulation. Clarins currently offers a wide range of shades in this formula (I spied 27!) so there is something for everyone and I'm quite certain a few more shades will make their way home with me. Have you tried any of the Joli Rouge shades?
