Red Lip Series: Clarins Rouge Prodige Dark Cherry Lipstick

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 16 - 2013

I can’t remember on whose blog it was that I first saw Dark Cherry from the Clarins Rouge Prodige lineup of lipsticks but it spoke to me.  It’s one of those lipsticks that hits the perfect balance between a number of shades to create “the ultimate” lust-have.  I actually don’t think it’s a very “cherry” shade despite Clarins telling me that it so is.  It seems to contain the magic amount of brown to create a neutral vampy lip that leans neither to cool nor too warm.

I’m aware that I’m not making much sense… but to be honest, I bought this lipstick based on shade alone and I am genuinely struggling to put into words just why I felt that I had to own it.  All I can say is, I’m pleased that I do.

Yeah, I nicked the bullet.  BIG SOB.  *applies lipstick*.  Over it already.

Said it before, say it again – Clarins do yum-yum packaging that’s kinda old-lady without being remotely old-lady.  Still not making sense.  The thing is, it’s all weighty and shiny… the gold is straight out of Nana’s handbag and yet, let’s face it… Nana’s wouldn’t have all those bevelled edges and tasty angles.  The formula is consistent with the other Rouge Prodige lipsticks I own, a tiny bit draggy until it warms up (which it does quickly), intensely scented (fig I believe?), and lasts very nicely thanks to a grippy-grippy formula.

You can see that it applies lighter on the lips than it looks in the tube, and really suits (if I do say so myself) my cool-toned colouring.

Clarins Rouge Prodige Dark Cherry Lipstick is available to buy online from www.escentual.com, priced at £14.00 (bargain!)

    Beautiful!!!! I’m loving the fact that it is lighter on the lips than in the tube. I don’t know why I don’t own more Clarins makeup as every time I see it i drool over it. I must rectify that ASAP! Thanks for the review & pictures!

  2. This is probably a color I wouldn’t pick up based on the look in tube, but it applies really beautifully.

    Gosh that is lovely! Completely different colour when applied. Just beautiful. *removes Rouge In Love from wish list*

  4. Gorgeous! It looks amazing on you, which means it’s possible it might look amazing on me because we’ve got similar skintone and eyes… so now I feel like a really want it. And £14 is acceptable. 🙂

    Clarins is a bit of a secret brand, isn’t it? I mean, it’s been there forever, and you have to walk past it to get to Clinique or Lancome or whatever, but it’s not one you think of stopping at because well, it’s a bit grown up, isn’t it? And that must make it expensive, surely?
    Yet you regularly show beautiful things form Clarins that are not overpriced (like this lippy!) and that work gloriously (those face powders!). I shall be cruising the counter from now on.

    Goegeous color! I don’t think I’ve ever owned a Clarins lipstick but now knowing about the “grippy-grippy” formula I’m going to have a 2nd look. 🙂

    Its okay, I have a little cry and freak out when I nick something or bang my eyeliner and the tip falls off. I once had to buy a new eyeliner because I wrecked it, it was not a good day for me!
