Clarins Chocolate Prodige Lip Gloss
Clarins Chocolate Prodige Lip Gloss

A Wearable Shade of Brown Lipgloss

Clarins Chocolate Prodige Lip Gloss ($20.00 for fl. oz.) is a reddened brown full of light pink and white micro-shimmer. Bobbi Brown Midnight Violet is more berry-hued. MAC Fancy Cat is browner, less red-toned. MAC Gertruyd is redder, less brown. MAC A Different Groove is darker and has gold shimmer.

According to Clarins, this gloss formula is supposed to have “intense color, mirror-like shine, and long-lasting hold.” Chocolate is mostly opaque, and it applied very evenly and stayed that way throughout the wear. It wore for five and a half hours, and while it initially felt non-sticky, it develop a very light tackiness after an hour and a half (but it never became sticky). It has a sweet, fruity scent but no discernible taste. It comes with a long sponge applicator that’s contoured on both sides, which makes it really easy to apply. The formula is lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear overall.

A-
It's a lovely formula that's long-wearing, comfortable, lightly hydrating, and more opaque than not. I like that it applies evenly, and I think the red in the brown makes it more wearable and modern.

  1. Hahaha, your eyes! True beautyblogger…

  2. KK

    It reminds me of the browns that were popular in the 90′s!

  3. Heather

    Owww… I love the purple eye look! The lipgloss is too brown for me.

  4. The mauve-ish shimmer is really pretty, and your good review of the formula makes me want to like it, but I just can’t get into brown lips! I’m sure it suits some skin tones really well, but it’s just not something I ever want to reach for on myself or other people. I think I’m still scarred from the 90s.

    This is such a beautiful gloss! I think it´s now on my shopping list, I like it :D . This color looks lovely on you Christine! Looks like I might have to start considering Clarins as a good makeup brand :P.

    Just Curious, is this the Odyssey collection gloss? just wondering :) .

  6. For some reason I immediately thought it was going to taste like chocolate. Sob.

    God, I love this gloss range. *A*

    Which one do you consider to be of highest quality and the best – Guerlain L’extrait or Armani Lip Maestro? I have trouble deciding which one to purchase.

    Maybe it’s my screen, but this doesn’t look predominately brown to me. This looks red with berry and brown tones mixed in. Calling this a brown lipgloss might make people a bit biased against it.

    Wow! Clarins wasn’t even on my radar, but now that you’re reviewing them, I feel a little spark of interest. Maybe I should try them out!

    Your eye makeup looks so weird but so cool ! I love it

  11. Although something this brown really isn’t my bag, this gloss is *gorgeous*! It’s SO rich and the shimmer is so fine and even–it’s lovely!

  12. Avatar of artemis artemis

    very pretty for being brown and shimmery :D

  13. I love the eyemakeup, but especially the purple side <3

  14. Avatar of Mariella Mariella

    I love Clarins Gloss Prodige but this colour just isn’t for me.

  15. Zainab

    I like this (I think brown may be my fave lip colour), but I think I’d want something without shimmer, is there anything close?

  16. Lisa G

    I have never looked twice at this brand or their products, but I’m in LOVE with this gloss. It’s so gorgeous and is on my wishlist now. I don’t think it looks too brown…just a hint of red/ berry to soften the brown tone. Beautiful!

  17. rachel

    like how you did 2 diff eyelooks, i could totally see me wearing it with some purple eyeshadow heheh !

  18. Avatar of rebecca blueraccoon

    I’m having 90′s flashbacks and can’t tell if that’s good or bad, lol! I htink not my color, though.

  19. Mimi

    Oooooh so pretty. Not usually what I would go for but definitely wearable. Also would be good to add to my kit since it looks like it would go well with different skin tones.

  20. Avatar of Dora Dora Seltzer

    Two looks in one face!…you’re a genius Christine. Amazing, and so beautiful.

  21. This is a really neat color! I am really digging it!

  22. Lynn

    It’s 1997! Love it.
