Rouge Eclat lipstick is packed full of goodies, such as Vitamin E, Jojoba and Sunflower to protect and soften lips and minimise fine lines. They market it as the first 'age defying' lipstick.
Very glamorous packaging
The two new colours for Autumn/Winter are Tawny Rose and Red Paprika. The Tawny Rose is a lovely soft brown/pink colour and is extremely wearable. What I liked about this lipstick is that it would suit many different skin tones. The Red Paprika is a stronger colour perfect for Winter time, still with a brown undertone. It feels lovely on and has a great sweet blackberry fragrance that isn't over powering, and reminded me of being in a sweet shop. It covers like a lipstick but feels like a balm on the lips.
Wearing Tawny Rose Rouge Eclat and Violet Crayon Kohl
The packaging for these lipsticks is beautiful. In a gold stick with Clarins written on it, these lipsticks are very glamorous and you would be proud to take these out of your handbag to reapply your lippie in public. With the use of a lip liner I found the lipsticks lasted most of the day but needed reapplying once or twice.

The Clarins Crayon Kohl is a great eye pencil to structure and define the eyes. It goes on softly and doesn't drag the skin. Each pencil has a soft brush on the end to blend and soften hard lines if needed.
Crayon Kohl in shades of 'true violet' and 'carbon black'
Dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested I didn't have any problems using these eyeliners with contact lenses in, there was no irritation at all. The
'Carbon Black' is a classic colour for a really dramatic look, but I preferred the 'True Violet' more, and felt it emphasised my dark brown eyes. The black Crayon Kohl had a sharpener included.
My only criticism of the Crayon Kohl is that if you have eyes that water easily you may find the kohl pencil does not last the night, instead go for Clarins waterproof eyeliner pencil.
Wearing the Violet Crayon Kohl
As you can see the crayon Kohl defines the eyes but can still give a soft look. I really love the Violet colour, it's now my new favourite eye liner.
The Rouge Eclat is priced at £19.50 and the Crayon Kohl £17 both from Clarins. Tell me, have you tried Clarins makeup?
