I’ve had this one for quite a while now. Took the photos and then forgot about it 😛 Never a better time than now to remedy that! 🙂
This was my first Clarins lipstick and I really like the formula of this one. Its very creamy but isn’t heavy on the lips and best of all, has no scent!
With a name like Red Terra, I was naturally already taken by it. But what really got me was how different it looks on the lips compared to the colour in the tube. In the tube, the colour is a browned red. I’d even go so far as to say its dull. However, I personally think this is a colour many women of most skin tones can pull off, because its quite a “neutral” sort of red, if that makes sense.
Clarins Joli Rouge Red Terra lipstick
The brand name is engraved on the lipstick… so you don’t forget 😛 The lipstick tube is slightly oval, which is in keeping with the rest of Clarins’ product packaging and if you notice, the slant on this lipstick is a bit shallower than normal lippies.

On my skin, this is the sort of colour you get. A red, but not super striking bright in-your-face red. Its really very wearable!
See what I mean? Its a red, but its not a siren red. If you are looking to dip your toes in the pool of red lipsticks, I will suggest that you take a look at Red Terra. The brown tones help to tone things down so you can wear this practically everyday, day or night 🙂
Pros: No scent, Creamy texture, Not drying, Pigmented colour
I’m glad I started this 30 day lip swatch project. Its helping me rediscover lipsticks and lipglosses I’d forgotten about, and colours that I might never have worn previously 🙂
Have you tried any Clarins Joli Rouge lipsticks? Do you have a favourite colour you think I should try? I might be keen to pick up another now that I’ve rediscovered these (which I actually prefer over Rouge Prodige!)
