Simply Lippy Challenge Day 36 | Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick in Shade 32, Pink Cranberry

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you believe the weekend is almost over already? It always goes so fast, especially when you’re busy running around doing things as I was today. But, the best thing about my weekends now, is getting to wear lipstick shades I wouldn’t wear to work.

Today’s lipstick is from Clarins, and is the most beautiful sheer lipstick I’ve worn in a long time. The shade, Pink Cranberry, is exactly what you expect it to be: a soft cranberry shade with a delicious berry scent. One of my favourite things ever in a lipstick is when the shade looks exactly the same on your lips as it does in the stick, so I really love that this Clarins lippy did that today.

The shade, from their Joli Rouge Brilliant range, is super hydrating on the lips and leaves a lovely intense shine on application. The soft texture makes it so easy to apply, and I absolutely loved it from the minute I put it on.

It’s not dissimilar in colour to the Hugs and Hibis-Kisses shade I wore from Catrice on Day 29 which I fell in love with; the only difference being that it was a creamy opaque lipstick and this is sheer. But, I’ve quickly fallen in love with this now too.

Sheer lipsticks wouldn’t usually be my go-to, but I was so impressed with this lippy today. At the beginning of my challenge I didn’t think I would discover so many new lipsticks that I’d end up liking so much, but today made me realised just how many amazing lip products are out there waiting to be discovered!

If you don’t like a sheer finish then this won’t be for you, but if you don’t mind about finish and want good quality, then this gets top marks from me. 

If you’re enjoying my challenge so far, I’d really love for you to please come follow me over on social media too.
