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
Oooh, can you believe that we’re already hitting Spring makeup collections? We might be cuddled up in cashmere, hiding from torrential rain, but Clarins is already treating us to the prettiest makeup which is designed to lighten up complexions.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who loves to play around with eye looks in the Spring, and Clarins are completely spoiling me with a choice of four brand new cream-to-powder formulas which come in the dreamiest of colours.
06 Silver Green, is a really beautiful cool toned khaki, which is shot through with silver shimmer. Depending on the light, the shadow flashes as either colour, and it creates a stunning multi-dimensional look.
The formula of the Ombre Iridescent shadows is dreamy – they feel soft and creamy to apply, and the colour payoff is just perfection. Mixed with a slightly darker shadow for definition, Silver Green is such a lovely choice for a spring-ready look.
I have to admit that I got rather excited when I saw that the shade 07 Silver Plum had come through the letterbox. I’ve got something of an obsession with mauve-brown shadows as they are super flattering to my colouring.
07 Silver Plum is absolutely everything I hoped it would be! Like Silver Plum, the formula is a complete dream, and the shadow really sparks up depending on the light. I been loving the shadow smoked out of my lash line. The shadow’s purple leanings are a lovely update to my everyday eye look, and I can’t wait for my next evening out where I’m planning a whole smoky look around the shadow!
Clarins new Spring 2016 collection is a really great little pick-me-up for this time of year, and I can’t wait to share my other little gems with you!
Clarins Ombre Iridescent Cream to Powder Eyeshadows will be priced at £19.00 each and will be available here.
