Think you already have a favourite lipstick? That’s about to change! Clarins has just unveiled a brand new finish in their iconic Joli Rouge Lipstick collection and it will make lipstick lovers weak at the knees, especially if you’re mad about matte.
The new release I’m referring to is Joli Rouge Velvet, a matte lip colour that’s super creamy, ultra pigmented and dries down to a soft powered finish. Unlike many other velvety formulas, Joli Rouge Velvet prides itself on being comfortable and hydrating, so if matte is your favourite lipstick result this will be music to your ears.
Joli Rouge Velvet is the perfect addition to the Joli Rouge family, now there really is something for everyone…
Before we take a look at the Velvet swatches, here’s a look at how the Joli Rouge family looks with this new finish addition. Now, you can get this classic lipstick pillar in a total of 3 finishes (satin, high-shine, matte) and 20 shades that are the same across all finishes.
About Joli Rouge
Joli Rouge: The original! Joli Rouge offers a satin finish, medium-to-full coverage and a creamy cushiony feel. The formula is enriched with a combination of mango oil and organic salicornia extract, which keep lips moisturised for hours.
Joli Rouge Brillant: Joli Rouge Brillant is a girl-next-door kind of lipstick, offering a sheer wash of colour and a radiant shiny finish. Added organic samphire extract keep lips hydrated, while mango oil improves suppleness and softness.
Joli Rouge Velvet: The latest addition to the line-up, Joli Rouge Velvet gives a soft, matte result. Matte doesn’t mean dry though thanks to a fusion of apricot and marsh samphire extract that keeps lips happy and hydrated.
