Get the sun-kissed look this Summer with Clarins’ newest collection | Out in May 2016 and available online
You know that Summer is well and truly on the way when Clarins’ iconic, giant bronzing and blush compact lands on your doormat. Becoming quite a cult product as the seasons go by, this complexion-warming, limited edition bronzer is just one of the amazing new products to be released this May from Clarins to get us sun-kissed and glowing for Summer. Whether you are tanning by the pool or going out in the warm summer evenings, this collection promises to give you a flawless complexion with a harmony of rich gold and bronze shades, sparkling eyes and fresh, fruity lips.
Firstly the Bronzing & Blush Compact* (£30) is embossed with a sun-inspired motif and warms your complexion with a blend of copper, terracotta and golden tones and an apricot pearlescent blush in the centre. Swirled together or used separately, these powders complement all skin tones and boosts a formula that cares for the skin whilst adding luminosity to your complexion. Every year Clarins launch a new one of these compacts and every year I vow that the latest one is my favourite but I do actually think this could be my absolute favourite – the tones and finish on the skin is just gorgeous and adds a natural radiance and sun-kissed dusting to your makeup.
For the eyes Clarins have released a range of four waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colours* (£18) which have a soft cream formula that glide easily onto the eyelids. The fine pearl particles provide a shimmering colour to subtly illuminate the eyes whilst the bitter orange tree wax creates a protective shield against water and humidity making sure the colour stays put longer during those warmer days. Above I have swatched 04. Copper Brown and 02. Silver Taupe and I think you will agree that Copper Brown, in particular, is just gorgeous!
Possibly the most exciting part of this new collection is the launch of a brand new Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil* (£19) in 03. Red Berry. You only need read my previous post here to see just why I love these lip oils so much. During the Summer when lips can be left feeling dry and parched, the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is the only remedy you will need to nourish and love your lips instantly whilst enhancing their natural colour.
The Clarins Fix’ Make-Up* (£24) has apparently been around before but has just undergone a bit of a facelift. I had never tried this product out before and now I can see why it would be the ultimate summer beauty must-have. It is an ultra-fine cooling mist that sets makeup by forming an invisible veil over the face. The Aloe Vera hydrates the skin, the Allantoin soothes whilst the exclusive Clarins anti-pollution complex protects the skin from external aggressors so is a great option to cool, refresh and shield your complexion on hot days out and about. Pop it in the fridge for the ultimate, refreshing experience when you spritz!
Finally there is a new and improved formula for the Double Fix’ Mascara* (£20) which is a multi-tasking product for your brows and eyelashes. The clear formula enriched with bitter orange tree wax can be used over your mascara to create a waterproof barrier or combed through your brows to keep them tame. The wax helps create a water repellent, protective shield to ensure long-lasting, waterproof results. It is a great little beauty staple to have to groom brows and style lashes for a minimal makeup look.
Summer is certainly going to be sun-kissed this year (even if the sun doesn’t shine) thanks to Clarins! What pieces have you got your eye on?
