Clarins Joli Rouge

I have this beautiful product in a sample size as part of my GWP. When the beauty advisor shown me the color, I was afraid the shade simply too dark to my liking, but she assured me the color would never looked heavy on lips.

As the name it called, Brilliant, the beauty advisor is utterly right. The texture is really smooth and moisturizing, but the pigmentation is rather sheer, which I love actually. The pearly particle is also very fine, sweeping few more layers to impart intense sexy shimmering lips.

I was not fond of shimmering lipstick, this is one of my exceptions. Love the flexibility that it can be sheerly applied for subtle appear or multi-layering for urging more attention. Due to the fine shimmers, lips looked well-moisturized, as well as less apparent lip lines. In real, the finish is much lovely than what I captured in my below attached testing pictures.

For the sheer pigmentation, this is unlikely to leave visible lip stain on cup. No noticeable fading if I only have a light meal, but would need a touch up after a main course. That happen to most lipstick I suppose. I have not tried other high end shimmering lipstick, so I have no idea how other does, but this is above average for sure.
