Clarins Lilac Pink Rouge Prodige Lipstick
Clarins Rouge Pridge: Lilac Pink
Clarins Lilac Pink Rouge Prodige Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a lilac-kissed pale pink with a subtle glossed shine and semi-opaque color. There is a faint sprinkling of micro-fine white shimmer. This is just one of those shades that is way too easy to wear often, because it looks natural but still more color than my natural lips yield on their own.
my thoughts on the formula: Rouge Prodige has a shiny, glossy finish, 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, the wear doesn’t extend past four hours. It is a comfortable lipstick to wear, because it doesn’t cling or dry lips out. 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.

final thoughts: Though it is a cooler-toned shade of pink, it works well on warmer complexions (try pairing it with purples and plums), in addition to naturally complementing cooler skin tones.
