I know it’s probably super obvious just from looking at the site, but Clarins’ Spring 2016 makeup collection is blowing me away. I’ve been wearing the products pretty much non-stop since they popped through the letterbox last week, and I’ve been nothing but impressed!
Keeping with my resolve to wear some more colour on my lips this year, Clarins’ new Rouge Eclat Age Defying Lipstick seem like the absolute perfect option. With four new shades for Spring, if you’re after a flattering pink lip, look no further!
In the tube, Pink Blossom looks like a quite a saturated rose shade, so I was quite surprised at how glossy the formula is! Like all Clarins lip products, the lipstick smells divine, and feels like a balm to apply. There isn’t a hint of dryness or stickiness; instead the formula just glides on, leaving lips looking glossy and hydrated. The colour itself is incredibly pretty – a slightly blue toned pink which leaves skin looking healthy and teeth looking lovely and white. Because of the lightweight formula, it’s not the longest-wearing lipstick, so I get about 2 hours of wear per application.
Clarins Rouge Eclat Age Defying Lipstick are priced at £19.50 and are available here
It really does feel like Autumn is on the way. Starbucks is already selling pumpkin spice lattes, and the temperatures have already taken a downturn. I don’t mind though, it’s probably my favourite season, as I get to dig out my cashmere sweaters and scarves and feel snuggy-warm day and night.
As Autumn gets all jewel-toned, I like to change up my makeup a little. My go-to pinky nude lips seem a little blah when everything is golden, so when I saw Clarins’ new Tawny Rose Rouge Eclat, released as part of their stunning Fall collection, I just knew I had to try it!
Packaged in Clarin’s signature glossy golden packaging, the Rouge Eclat lipsticks are really a thing of beauty. Inside the tube the lipstick is angled, so application without a lip brush is an absolute breeze! The formula itself is absolutely beautiful – it feels nourishing to wear thanks to the inclusion of Vitamin E as well as 100% plant waxes including mimosa, jojoba and sunflower provide instant comfort to dehydrated lips.
21 Tawny Rose is the most beautiful amplified nude, which is just perfect for wearing right now. The brown undertones of the lipstick means it feels both very of the moment as well as classically pretty. The formula is buttery smooth and just glides on. I apply straight from the bullet, and the colour applies evenly and smoothly. The colour payoff is great – I easily get about three hours of wear before I feel the need to reapply.
Clarins Rouge Eclat 21 – Tawny Rose is priced at £19.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
