Clarins Autumn 2011: Rouge Prodige Lipstick new shades!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 5 - 2011

Three new lip colours have joined the permanent range of Clarins Rouge Prodige lipsticks this Autumn and although they’re new shades for fall, they hark back to the Summer we never had.  Let me tell you why…

Summer 2011 was all about the glossy, sheer look for lips with shades like Chanel’s Boy making the biggest waves across the beauty blogosphere.  Clarin’s Autumn lineup has included three new Rouge Prodige colours* that replicate the sheer, glossy trend but in a more Winter-appropriate formula that’s less balmy and longer-lasting than the Summer offerings.

Rouge Prodige True-Hold Colour & Shine Lipsticks include include the new shades:

#105 Peach Sorbet
#115 Rosy Coral
#123 Creamy Toffee

Here’s a closer look…

The Rouge Prodige formula continues to feel quite different to most other lipsticks.  For a long-wearing texture, it feels moisturising on the lips and fairly tacky, though not in a gloopy, lipgloss way.  These don’t dry my lips at all but you may find the stickiness a little awkward if you’re prefer a matte-r feeling.

Here’s how they look applied and in context with the rest of the face.  You can see here that each shade is fairly transparent with a hint of base colour.  The most pigmented is #105 and I felt that each shade would particularly suit specific skintones: #105 for warmer skins, #115 for cooler skintones and #123 for darker complexions.

The new shades add polish and shine to a made-up face without injecting too much colour.  Balm fans will be delighted to find a longer-lasting alternative to the Summer trends, colour-freaks?  Not so much.

The new Clarins Rouge Prodige shades are available to buy now online at Clarins.com and on counter, priced at £17.00 each.

    These aren’t shades I would normally go for but actually I’m pleasantly surprised! They really suit your colouring. I’m a bit tempted by Rosy Coral I have to admit. x

    wow…gotta say I love those lip colors on you! On pale skin it looks so great, my medium skin won’t be able to cut it.

    Just a random comment, I love how fit you’re getting! I remember a post way back when you talked about your fight with obesity and it looks like you’re winning! You look stunning and I love your blog :)

    Love your blog! Just one question, in the “pot”, these lipsticks looks like they have some shimmer/sparkle, but looking at the swatches on your hand and lips it seems that it does’nt really show up. Do you see any shimmer in person?

    • Hiya, thank you very much! The shimmer is really fine-grade so on the lips it’s very subtle… not sparkly but more light reflective? You wouldn’t look and say “oh, sparkles!” – you just wouldn’t mistake them for matte lips. Clear as mud?! :D

    These colors look great on you. I love coral and peach shades, but never dared to wear them. I have a yellow undertone to my skin and I’m scared that coral lipstick will make me look too yellow :P So have to admire it from the distance :)
