Hi lovelies! Today, I'm going to be reviewing this gorgeous Clarins lipstick for you all today. I recently picked this up at a big Clarins sale (my friend works at a Clarins Warehouse and they have a huge annual sales every year!) because I was running out of my favourite MAC Lipstick 'Pure Zen' and wanted a new nudey/ natural pink colour.

'Rosy Coral' is a lipstick from Clarins' Rouge Prodige line, it's a light, warm toned pink colour, that is semi sheer on the lips. What I love about this, is that because it's semi sheer, you can wear it over a nude lipstick for a very muted, nude pink, or over natural lips or stained lips for a slightly bright more 'pink' pink. During the day, I get a little concealer or foundation on my lips when applying my base, then apply this over the top so it's a little more subtle (this is what I did for the swatch). However, applied over my natural lip colour (which is fairly pigmented), it gives a 'my lips but better' effect as it makes them more pink and very glossy.

As it is so glossy, you wouldn't need to wear a gloss over this lipstick. It's something I'm getting used to as I usually wear fairly matte lip colours with not much gloss at all, however during the winter matte lipstick can be a bit of a no no for me as my lips get so dry! The great thing about this lipstick is that it's super moisturising and very forgiving on any dry, chapped patches. This actually feels more like a balm on the lips than a lipstick, so it makes it absolutely perfect for the winter months.

Overall, I'd totally recommend this lipstick to anybody as I think it would be flattering on just about anyone! The slightly sheer formula and natural pinky colour make it perfect for day to day wear.

What do you think? Do you have a favourite lipstick of the moment? I'd love to know!

  3. I love this! I bought a nude rimmel lipstick but its too nude and not enough pink, so I might give this a try! How much is it?

  5. My favorite lipstick right now is MAC Diva...definitely not a neutral haha! I've just been super obsessed with vampy lips lately. However, most of the time I wear nudes so this color seems right up my alley. Thanks for the review!

  7. It looks lovely on you! I personally don't go for these kind of colours because I think they look too much like the 'foundation on the lips' whole thing! x
