Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…You’re Not Half as Shiny as These Three New Clarins Graphic Expression Fall 2013 Collection Joli Rouge Lipsticks

Published in: Clarins, Lips, Makeup, Product Reviews

Clarins Spicy Cinnamon Joli Rouge

Now that’s a Spicy Cinnamon! — A Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Spicy Cinnamon ($26), one of three new shades for fall.

Those matte lippies have such sass! — always seducing makeup lovers with their fabulously flat finishes.

Recent intel gathered from credible sources indicates that 1) I’ve been watching a ton of 24 lately, and 2) matte lip products have been quietly taking over the world! makeup bags one tube at a time.


The conspiracy runs deep, too. You can’t trust anyone…

Uh…sorry about that. Random Jack Bauer moment. They really should put a warning label before that show. “Too many back-to-back episodes may result in product paranoia.”

Hmm, where were we?

Oh, yeah! So, I’ve been diggin’ the flat finishes coming out for fall, but that doesn’t mean I love luminous lipsticks like the three new fall Joli Rouge Lipsticks from the Clarins Graphic Expression collection any less. They reflect so much light that I can practically read by ’em in the dark!

Well, not really, but medium-weight, full-coverage rosy Pink Camellia, orangey brown Spicy Cinnamon and plummy Royal Plum do almost look like glosses on my lips.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I just saw one of the scariest movies I’ve seen in years! — and I sweated through the entire thing. It’s called Your Next, in theaters now. Survival of the fittest meets home invasion meets creepy animal masks… I don’t even know how to describe it, but it was good, if you like horror movies. You don’t want to be queasy if you’re gonna watch it. That’s for sure.

    These are really nice! I swatched them when I purchased the Forest palette. Don’t know if I’m going to fall for them since I’ve recently rediscovered matte lipsticks. They have taken over!!! OMG I think you right! It’s a conspiracy! 🙂

    I love these lipsticks! the ease of a lipgloss but a little more grown up, especially being they are by Clarins, which I always felt was a very “grown up” brand.
