Today I finally want to share with you the latest lipstick must-haves from Clarins. They recently launched four incredible new matte lipstick formulas and I got to try their new Joli Rouge Crayons and Velvet Lip Perfectors. Matte lipsticks are a masive trend this summer and I’m so glad they made a comeback because I just adore the look of matte lips.

These new Joli Rouge Crayons have got to be my new all-time favourite type of lipstick. These are essentially 2-in-1 lip liner pens that work just perfectly for me. I love how precise these pens define the lips and it’s so easy to fill them in in one easy step while also keeping the lips hydrated with a colour that lasts all day long. The creamy texture glides onto the lips effortlessly and can be used in two different ways: sculpt and line lips before applying lipstick, or completely fill-in lips for an intensely bold finish. I have applied all four shades in the images below and I just love how they look on my lips. The formula is non-drying and feels very comfortable. These crayons also have a built in sharpener which makes life just so easy.
I absolutely love Clarins original Lip Perfectors so I was immediately intrigued when I found out about their new matte versions. The Velvet Lip Perfectors are available in four stunning new shades which you can see in the images below. I honestly can’t pick a favourite because all of the colours are super wearable and pretty. Just like the original Lip Perfectors, these lipsticks add an intense flush of colour to the lips and deliver a velvety finish with a gentle blurring effect. They feel ultra-light and no matter how many times I re-apply the colour, my lips never get dry and the texture melts right into the lips. The Velvet Lip Perfectors are enriched with shea butter to plump and shape the lips, leaving them moisturized and soft throughout the day. The sponge applicator also feels very comfortable and I can confirm that these last all day long, even when you’re eating or drinking.
Have you tried any of their new lipsticks yet? Which shade is your favourite?
