28 Days of Kisses - Day 9=Clarins Rouge Prodige lipstick in Dark Cherry

This is a lipstick that I'd never imagine myself wearing as I'm a more neutral lippie sort of girl. Clarins Rouge Prodige in Dark Cherry is a intense cherry red shade. Before I get into what I think of the product, let me just say it doesn't show up too well in the picture below. I think my camera has had its day, it's not taking good pictures anymore at all. Plus the lighting is terrible!  The lipstick comes out more of a bright shade when in fact it's more of a vampy red in person. I'm surprised to tell you guys I actually ended up rather liking this lipstick. I know I'm in shock myself! I did dab it down a bit to get a more wearable shade for me but that aside I did really like it  Throughout this year I've decided to use more vibrant shades and stop being so scared of them. I have quite dark hair so they should work well for me, but I just feel self conscious wearing them on my lips. Does anyone else feel the same?
Today I headed into town to meet Paddy. Seeing as it's my birthday next Friday he wanted to have a look around the shops and pick out some presents for me. Yes they are mostly beauty related and I love them! I can't show you guys cause he took them home with him to put up for my birthday. I'll definitely do a post though after my birthday to show you guys the gifts I got. I did pick him up some bits in town for Valentines Day aswell. I got him a Brian Cox book and a jumper. My craft skill are coming out and I'm also making him a collage of photos of us. It's something thoughtful and special, I know he'll love it.

What do you think of this Clarins lipstick? Do you like bright vibrant shades?
