The Clarins Joli Rouge is meant to have a long-wearing, but moisturizing formula. I've reviewed the shade Baby Rose on the blog before in case you're interested.
I wasn't sure I'd like Spicy Cinnamon at first - the color is not something I'd pick out for myself, mostly because it looks a bit brown in the bullet. It even looks quite brown on my hand swatch! However, upon application on my lips I was smitten. Just look a this perfect autumn shade!
I'd describe the color as a rusty warm (shimmerless) red. Somehow, even if warm colors don't generally suit my skin tone, I think it's pretty flattering! I can see myself wearing this with a simple cat eye liner and a taupe blush. It's quite a unique shade - I definitely don't have anything like it in my collection. It kind of reminds me of NARS Autumn Leaves from last year's fall collection, except warmer and less shimmery. I don't have it to compare sadly!
I'll definitely keep this baby in my fall lip stash along with my berries and reds! I think it's a nice twist on the usual colors you see for fall. Are you into these types of lipstick colors?
