Wearing Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Poppy Red
Quick! — your three favorite flavors of fruity candy and gum?
If grape is on your list, these Clarins Joli Rouge Lipsticks from the new spring 2012 Colour Breeze Collection ($24) were made
to chew for you.
Especially if you like your grape candy with extra servings of shiny, moisturizing lipstick on the side.
Available in four faintly grape-scented and flavored shades, Poppy Red, Baby Pink, Sheer Pink Magnolia and Sheer Pink Coral are more than just delicious. They’re also creamy and — no, not nutritious. I was gonna say rich.
I can’t get enough of the two shades I’ve tried, Poppy Red and Sheer Pink Magnolia. Luckily, I like the flavor and scent, which fade after about 15 minutes of wear, and I don’t find them cloying, too artificial or overwhelmingly strong.

But adding flavors and scents to lip products is always a risk. You just never know how your nose and taste buds will react, and since these are $24 each and not $2 drugstore fare, you might want to sniff test one before bringing it home.
It’s weird… These feel rather thick on my lips, so I was expecting stellar wear time, but I’ve only been getting about 2-3 hours. Good thing I like the scent, I guess, because it makes having to reapply them so often less of a chore.
PRICE: $24 each
