Matte Lip Heaven with Clarins Joli Rouge Velvet

Oh hey, it's me back with more lipsticks, more matte lipsticks to be precise and I don't want you to freak your bank account out but you're gonna want to nip to Clarins ASAP. I LOVE a matte lip, I've tried various brands, formulas and shades, I know my favourites and I know what doesn't work so when Clarins came along with a matte lipstick which gave the incredibly matte finish I desire while moisturising my lips better than shea butter, well I sat up and took notice.

The Clarins Joli Rouge range is loved by many, I have a number of shades from the original Joli Rouge range and they're some of my most used lipsticks but until now there hasn't been anything quite matte enough and then my prayers were answered. 

The Joli Rouge Velvet range has just launched in 20 breathtaking shades from sultry reds to your every day nude. The formula gives an incredible matte finish, keeps lips hydrated and it's so comfortable to wear unlike super drying Ruby Woo. Each lipstick comes cased in gold, feels super luxurious and totally worth the £22.00 price tag. 

I think other than the oh so beautiful shades, the main talking point about this particular lipstick is the formula, something that is quite rare when it comes to a good matte lip. The Joli Rouge range is renowned for its hydrating formula making sure you get a perfect non drying lipstick with a flawless finish. 

The velvety texture allows the bullet to glide on to lips to create a cushion of colour while giving a burst of hydration while the organic orange oil helps keep lips soft and smooth. It's essentially skincare for lips and we all know how much I love Clarins skincare!

In typical Alice fashion, I went straight in with two bold shades to try, Spicy Cinnamon and Red Orange. They couldn't be more me if I tried. Spicy Cinnamon is going to be my Autumn shade, it's bursting full of colour and I love the rust vibes it has whereas Red Orange has already placed itself in the top summer lip shade list. It hasn't left my lips since it arrived as it looks excellent with the tan I've managed to pick up. I feel like you can't beat an orange toned red during the summer months. 

I have my eye on a couple of the nude shades next, Nude Brick and Woodberry. 

With 20 shades to choose from, you'd be hard pressed not to find something you'll love and if you need any extra help just use the Lipstick Finder on the Clarins website to find your perfect shade. 

Happy lipstick shopping!
