It’s time for Summer makeup releases. Ah this makes me so happy! First in was from Clarins. Clarins is a brand I have dabbled in quite a bit over the years. There are some lovely products in the line up for Summer…
Clarins Splendours Colour Quartet and Eye Liner Palette (€39)
The shadows contain concentrated mineral pigments which deliver long-lasting results. I love the packaging, it’s so elegant. The colours are the perfect set of neutrals.
Swatches with flash…
Without flash in natural day light…
These shades are really pretty on blue eyes. I was surprised that they eyeliner (last) is actually creamy in texture rather than powder – nice surprise. Ok so the colours won’t knock you out but if you’re looking for a set of neutrals these are nice. I particularly like the first shadow. They’re smooth and easy to apply and last well throughout the day. I also like that you get two different applicators – one slanted for eye liner and two wands.
Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Gel 01 Crystal Pink (€20)
This gel visibly plumps lips and provides a lovely shine. It is totally translucent and non-sticky texture that colours lips with a transparent finish. It also has a delicious blackcurrant fragrance.
Clarins Splendours Shimmer Body Oil (€37)
This oil is divine! It provides a shimmery (but not glittery) warm glow to the skin. It smells amazing and makes limbs look long and lean. Love it already! All I need now is a Summer holiday to really show it off… I might just have to imagine!
Available in store from May 3013.
