The Clarins Spring 2012 Prodige Lip Glosses in Candy and Blackberry Smell So Good That I Can Hardly Bear It

Yum, Clarins! Whose idea was it to make these new Prodige Lip Glosses in Blackberry and Candy taste and smell like red gummi bears.

Genius! He/she is a total prodigy, haha!

Sorry, couldn’t resist. :)

And the colors? So pigmented, and yet I still like the way they pair with the soft, springy blues in the Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in Blue Sky and the sheer Instant Light Blush in Coral Tonic.

Who’d a thunk it?

Unfortunately, I have to reapply these non-sticky glosses about every 2 hours, but on the plus side, red gummi bears! — and I like how lightweight they feel.

Come on, though. For $20? A longer wear time would’ve been nice…

PRICE: $20 each

    Too bad about the wear time, but the colors are pretty. I especially like Candy. Have a great Friday! We’re expecting snow and ice here in Ohio so I’ll be hunkering down in the house in my PJs. :-(

      Oh noes, SNOW! I can’t even imagine. Well, sometimes it’s nice to have a weekend at home. Are you all stocked up with the essentials — snacks, movies, etc.? :)

      • Ruchita says:

        Yep, stopped at the store on the way home! Bought some tropical punch flavored vodka so I can pretend I’m somewhere warm. :-)

    Blackberry looks awesome on you, and seriously who cares about the 2hr wear time when they taste yummy! As for that necklace, I love love love it. Really brightens up your complexion.

  6. Sunny says:

    Oooo both colors look so cute! I do wish they’d wear a little longer though.

    PS: Love your TGIF picture!

  7. Adrienne says:

    I was really disappointed by wear time as well, especially when they tout them as a long wearing gloss!! I also felt that they seemed to bleed or something around the edges, I could even see it if I left swatches on my hand, the edges softened and spread.

    If it weren’t for those two problems, I’d be all over the one bright pink color, 05, I forget the color name. It’s a great shade and I love it on me. Oh well, c’est la vie!
