Sometime during my coral lippie craze period, I got introduced to Clarins Joli Rouge...
I love the tube! It is from metal and rather heavy, totally gives luxe feel! And the lipstick bullet is embossed! I love attention to details like this.
Joli Rouge applies slightly heavier than balm, but not waxy. Still comfortable to wear. It has caramelized sweetened fruit smell and rather sweet taste. I can smell the caramelized fruits not only during application, but up to approximately 30 minute-ish. Nothing unpleasant, but those who don’t fancy perfumed lipsticks might find this a little inconvenient, as you might have to de-fragrance it by leaving it open for a day or two to let the fragrance evaporate.
Lasts like other lipsticks I’ve tried 2-3 hours with tea sippings in between. By the end of the wear, I can see slight tint on my lips, stained look. I kinda like it if I don’t feel like full colored lips. I usually apply then blot with tissue paper as needed, top off with light balm.
This lippie is pretty moisturizing, not like balm, but comfortable to wear and I don’t end up with ultra dry lips by the end of the day.
