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.

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 itΒ΄s now on my shopping list, I like it πŸ˜€ . 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 πŸ™‚ .

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.

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!

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.

I was looking for a brown lip gloss for my mom for soo long, some were too orange,some were too red but this is the perfect one. I ordered it right away.
