Review: Clarins Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick in Chocolate Rose 14


Clarins sure love naming their products with super long names! Lately I have been lusting over Clarins' range of lipsticks, admiring its gorgeous gold packaging along with swatching the testers offered at the stand every time I walked past. I typically associate Clarins to be a brand that generally targets more mature women, however there is no age factor when it comes to makeup! The more I swatched the beautiful Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipsticks, the more I fell in love with its creamy and easy to apply formula. After one stressful day, I parted with my money and came home with the Rouge Eclat in Chocolate Rose.


I've always been a lover of French skincare, but Clarins definitely shows that they do luxurious makeup products too. At $38 a pop, by no means is it affordable, however compared to the likes of Chanel and YSL, it is significantly less expensive. It definitely doesn't hurt as much when I am able to get a 25% discount on it too! The beautifully luxe lipstick case doesn't compromise on quality; it weighs nicely in the hand and its golden exterior looks indulgent thrown into my handbag. Clarins describes the Rouge Eclat as a lipstick with intense long-lasting colour, while boosting collagen and protecting lips from dehydration- absolutely what I would look for in a lipstick. 





The colour choice is so typical "me"; I adore a more warm, browny pink/nude shade as it is perfect for everyday wear, which can never go wrong (although I seem to have plenty of lipsticks with a similar shade oops!). The Rouge Eclat applies on so smoothly and effortlessly, with a beautiful satin finish that is absolutely plush. My lips are quite pigmented and many lipsticks struggle to show up, but the Rouge Eclat performs excellently, coating my lips with a lovely colour. The swatch on my arm came out a little more orange-leaning than its true colour, however my lip swatch gives a better representation of this demure shade. I love how hydrating the lipstick is, and you can see just by the shine that appears on my lips! 

My first ever lip swatch!
I am very impressed with how the Rouge Eclat performed in terms of colour and application, and its longevity wasn't too shabby either. The colour wore away evenly which was a plus- patchy lip colour is not the look I'm after! The Rouge Eclat is also one of the most comfortable lipsticks I have worn and I highly praise its formula. I won't hesitate to buy more Clarins lipsticks, although my wallet might start to complain if I keep this a habit!

Have you tried any lipsticks from Clarins before?

    1. I love Clarins too, their foundations are so beautiful and their skincare is really good (I like their hydrating moisturisers for dry skin!). I actually haven't tried the Beauty Flash Balm before, I really need to! Clarins lipsticks are fantastic and such high quality :)

  2. Such a gorg nude shade! I absolutely love the color and finish! It looks so moist and that's something I need sooo much! I think I'm more likely to check this out before I check out their glosses now!

  5. I've only tried one Clarins lipstick which I snagged on clearance for $10 (score!) and I've been absolutely loving the formula. It's actually a sort of similar shade to yours! Clarins is a brand that I need to check out more of - namely the darned lip perfectors which I've meaning to get one of for forever! Also woooo for first time lip swatchers haha my latest post had my first lip swatch too :)

    1. Ooh a Clarins lipstick for $10, a score indeed! Their formulas are so lovely and flattering, I really enjoy using them :) I quite like their lip perfectors despite not liking lip gloss at all, they are far from sticky and keep your lips moisturised :)

  6. On your lips this looks quite a bit pinker than I would've thought from the arm swatch - it's super pretty on you! Such a beautiful everyday shade that is ultra wearable :)

    1. I love the shade because it is so wearable! The arm swatch does look a little off, but I think the lip swatch is more true to its colour :)

  7. Clarins lipstick colors are so full on the lips, not to mention the moisture they give. Nice color choice.

  13. That is an interesting color. On you it certainly works! I am not sure if it's universally flattering though. It might wash some people (*cough* like me *cough*) out a little. Looks like a fantastic formula though.
