Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For Spring 2016, Clarins has a ton of new shade additions to its beloved lip product ranges. Today I have swatches and reviews of the Joli Rouge Brillant in "27 Rouge Brillant" ($28 CAD), Rouge Eclat in "26 Rose Praline" ($28 CAD), and the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in "08 Plum Shimmer" ($20 CAD).

Joli Rouge Brillant in "27 Hot Fuchsia"
Joli Rouge Brillant in "27 Hot Fuchsia" ($28 CAD):
12 New Shades available March 2016

The Joli Rouge Brillant line from Clarins is a permanent lipstick range that promises creamy texture, transparent color, and a gloss-like shine. For March, Clarins is adding 12 new shades to the pre-existing line and I have shade "27 Hot Fuchsia".
This is a very pretty bright pink semi-sheer lip color. In the tube there seem to be some sparkles but you can't really see any shimmer on the lips. The formulation is super slick and moisturizing due to the mango oil and marsh samphire plant extract in the ingredients and I love how comfortable it applies and feels on the lips. The color has a beautiful natural sheen but the wear is not super great.

Rouge Eclat Lipstick in "26 Rose Praline" ($28 CAD):
4 New Shades available February 2016

For Spring 2016, Clarins is adding four new shades to its beloved Rouge Eclat range, which promises rich pigmentation and a silky texture. The formulation is infused with extracts of mimosa, jojoba, sunflower, and cocoa to condition and hydrate the lips.
"26 Rose Praline" is a really lovely soft peach-pink nude with no shimmers. Despite being a lighter shade, the coverage is actually very nice and even. Although a tad sheer, the color is buildable. Again, the wear is just okay, simply because the formulation is slick and non-clingy.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in "08 Plum Shimmer" ($20 CAD):
2 New Shades available February 2015

Described as a "melting gel" infused with shea butter, the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector is a lightweight and non-sticky gloss with a very comfortable wear. The new shade "08 Plum Shimmer" is a decently pigmented dark pink filled with teeny silver micro-shimmers. The product smells really lovely and the squeeze tube with a doe-foot applicator is very convenient (similar to that of the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks).
