The Clarins Summer collection launch is something I always look forward to. Every year they come out with a limited edition bronzer that makes my heart do a little flip in my chest but this year it wasn’t only the bronzer that got me excited. If sweat/waterproof bronzy makeup is your thing or at least something you’re working toward for this summer, you’re going to love this range as much as I do.
So I thought I’d go through the new releases because they’re far too beautiful. Also if you’re wanting to see a little makeup tutorial using some of these products check out this video. It’s also like below.
Clarins Bronze & Blush Compact: This product is an absolute beauty. It has two warm bronzer shades, one champagne shade & a coral blush in the centre. You could swirl your brush in the compact to get a combination of all the shades or use them separately.
Clarins Ombre Waterproof Shadow: I like this because they’ve really put in the time to perfect the packaging – I love the squeezey tube, it makes the product really easy to use and completely fuss-free. They have a wonderful shimmer to them but it does tend to be patching if you don’t apply it evenly. They also dry really fast so blending quickly is key. You can use a brush or your finger tips to apply it.
This come sin four shades: Golden Sand, Golden Peach, Copper Brown, & Silver Taupe.
Clarins 3-Dot Liner: I wasn’t expecting to love this eyeliner as much as I do but now I can’t imagine using anything else. When you first look at it, you can’t imagine creating a strong sharp wing but it can do just that. If you want to see a look with this liner let me know.
Clarins Crayon Khol Liner: This liner is actually pretty solid so is great to use on the upper or lower lash line & you can smudge it out with the brush on the other end.
This comes in four shades: Intense Black, Brown, Platinum & Brown.
Clarins Be Long Masara: This is not necessarily part of the Summer launch but its worth mentioning. It’s a great everyday mascara that gives good volume and can be used on your upper or lower lashes. I’ve tried it on both and it’s pretty good. The only thing is that it has one of those plastic wands which isn’t my favourite but I like the effect it gives my lashes.
Clarins Fix Makeup: This is a wonderful final step to makeup, I love the scent & the fine mist. It is very fragranced through so if that’s not your thing, this may not be for you, but I love it.
Clarins Double Fix Mascara (Waterproof): This is a clear gel that can essentially be used over the top of any mascara or brow product to set them in place and make it water-resistant.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil: These are the star of the show! I cannot get enough of these, they’re my go-to lip product. The applicator is unlike anything I’ve ever used before, its like rubbing baby skin (I tried to make that as un-creepy as possible) on your lips. They have the slightest amount of tint but it’s not noticeable.
This comes in 3 shades:
If you had to choose, I’d definitely go for the 3-Dot Liner, Bronze & Blush Compact & the Comfort Lip Oils. Also, I think Stuttafords is having a free gift with purchase on Clarins. I do’t know all he details but maybe just do some research.
Let me know what you’re interested in trying.
