There’s something about the fall and winter time that makes us gravitate towards darker shades from makeup to clothing. For me, it is the only time of the year that I will grab a darker lipstick. Unfortunately, also for me, I get annoyingly chapped lips this time of year. Chapped lips from central heating and ice cold do not mix with darker lipsticks. So I am always on the lookout for lipsticks that do not dry out my lips even more. Enter the new Clarins¬†Joli Rouge lipsticks. Not only do they come in 20 luxurious shades in 3 finishes, they are enriched with apricot oil, mango oil, and organic marsh samphire extract. This helps nourish, hydrate, and protect your lips… another major plus if you’re like me and tend to grab wine instead of water.



The three finishes shown here are classic in 744, brilliant in 744S, and velvet in 744V. Side note about this photo- the next day I could still see the outlines on my arm (after washing serval times). Granted I am very pale, but this lipstick has impressive staying power!



Thank you Clarins for partnering on this post. All opinions remain my own.
