I love it when a traditional brand takes a bold step with branding, or indeed with product – and Clarins’ latest Joli Rouge collection is a fun focused capsule which celebrates the art of make up with almost Picasso-like artwork on the packaging. J’adore!
There are five new items in time for Autumn/Winter, including a waterproof gel liner, mascara and 3 new bold, two-toned lipsticks.
The Waterproof Gel Liner, which comes in one colour (intense black), has a smooth gel texture and is accompanied by its very own brush (which is brilliant at a price point of £26.50) is intensely pigmented so it will provide up to 12 continuous hours of wear against sweat, water and humidity, ideal for those catching the last of the summer sun, or music festivals across Europe
The Supra Volume Mascara, which again only comes in one colour (also intense black) is infused with wax from the cassia flower, allowing you two achieve instantly bolder lashes. The mascara, combined with the waterproof gel liner, makes for the perfect sultry, smouldering eye look, great for both during the day, or nighttime.
The most exciting part of the new Autumn Make-up collection however has to be the new two-toned lipsticks, which come in three differing colours, ‘Coral cooler months ahead. The two-tones on each product actually sculpt the lips and blend to make a perfect ombre, giving the lips a plump and full effect. These lipsticks have a satin finish and are very moisturizing, which also helps with the colder climes. Although there are only 3 shades (6 colours all together), the colour-scheme is very broad, spanning from (as the shade names explain), corals, to reds, to deeper plum and purple tones. All of these will enhance both your final makeup look and outfit, giving you a chic, autumnal vibe.
If you’re unsure about which products to get, or which will suit your complexion best, Clarins is offering every customer 3 free samples with any online order under £400, a perfect excuse to venture into their other makeup products or even their highly effective skincare!
