The Scarlet Season: La Prairie Rouge Clair Lipstick

La Prairie Rouge Clair Cellular Luxe Lip Colour ($55.00 for 0.12 oz.) is the creme de la creme of luxe lip color in a bright, scarlet red. It’s seems mostly like a blue-based red, but it warmed up a bit on my lips when I swatched it — but it didn’t go orange on me, either (thankfully!). La Prairie lipsticks feel outstanding, like the smoothest silk that clings to lips and keeps them moisturized the entire time you’re wearing the color. It’s incredibly pigmented and goes opaque in just one swipe. If you have the money to spend, La Prairie’s Rouge Clair may be that perfect red you’ve been searching for.

And just to add, part of the reasoning behind the cost is that there is a “Cellular Complex” and “Caviar Extracts” to help fill in lip lines restoring fullness and plumpness while being hydrating. I’d say that my lips seemed a bit plumper and the lines certainly less noticeable, but these were both temporary effects on me. Nonetheless, it’s a gorgeous, high quality lipstick, albeit very expensive, too.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

LOVELOVELOVE!

The way you applied it is also great!
Nothing ruins the beauty of the red lipstick more than unaccurate application.
Way to go Christine!

Thanks, Whirl! I’m actually all done with red lipsticks – just enough to hold us through December. I’m about all red lip’d out, LOL!

Sorry about that!

I’ve really enjoyed this series of posts. I don’t normally wear reds, but I did venture out to buy a couple of them from this series, and I really like the effect, they’re so festive!
