It’s impossible to test and review every single beauty product on the market, so that’s why we’re just highlighting the good stuff. You know, those lotions and potions with which we’re currently obsessed, and the beauty counter bits we believe are worth the buy. This week’s pick is a longwearing pink lipstick that just begs to be worn every day.
I make it a point of wearing something colorful on my lips at all times whether it be lipstick, gloss, or balm. But the problem I’ve always had is finding one that stays on for more than an hour. None of the lipsticks, glosses, or stains I’ve ever tried make it past my morning coffee and bagel, but I think I just found my perfect match — Clarins‘ Rouge Eclat Lipstick Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick in Tropical Pink.
The press release and samples I was sent touted the lipstick’s age-defying properties, but I was way more interested in the saturated and vibrant colors. I applied one layer of Tropical Pink, and was immediately hooked. Not only was the product itself super hydrating, but it stayed on well past my breakfast. I mean, the entire thing, and not just the edges around my mouth that didn’t touch my coffee cup.
Tropical Pink is also a perfect bright-but-not-too-bright shade that I find works better for every day than a traditional red. It’s like a supernatural version of my natural lipcolor, and the satin finish makes it look like I’m not really wearing lipstick at all.
