Leave a comment on this blog post telling me which eyeshadow you would pair with this gloss!
Here’s the look I talked about in my review of NARS Melusine! This was a super quick look — I think it took five minutes at most.
For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply the silver-plum shade on the lid. Lightly blend the eggplant eyeshadow in the crease and diffuse upwards with the 217. Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Black Swan eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Albatross blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Gillian lipstick first, and then layer Imaginaire lipgloss for a complementing lip.
Clarins Rosewood Rouge Prodige Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rosy nude with a glistening shine. This is my kind of nude–it doesn’t wash you out or make you look like a corpse. It’s soft and muted, the way a good nude should be, but it still brightens up the face. This is the kind of shade that works well for everyday or paired with a heavier eye/cheek look. I find it more neutral-cool, which makes it a very wearable shade.
It does have that shiny, glossy finish the description boasts, and it doesn’t feel like the traditional long-wearing lipstick does. There is nothing drying about it when you apply it, because it applies like a thin gloss or a gloss/lipstick hybrid. The color pay off is excellent, though, and really delivers opaque color with a lightweight feel. It doesn’t transfer much when drinking from a glass, but for whatever reason, it just doesn’t extend past four hours.
The Rouge Prodige is a comfortable lipstick to wear, because it doesn’t cling or dry lips out (but while it has a glossy feel when applied, I do not find it moisturizing). There is a faint sweetened berry scent that is detectable but not overpowering (and doesn’t read synthetic or syrupy sweet), and there was no noticeable taste.
