Clarins pretty much has it covered for summer with the imminent launch of their Aquatic Treasures Summer Make-Up Collection coming out in May.
I was able to get a sneak peek at the new collection and it is absolutely gorgeous. Think of shimmering, glowing and iridescent colours and you will be there.
The collection aims to capture the textures and shades of the ocean with the launch of these new products:
Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact £30
Clarins Aquatic Treasures Instant Light – Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Apricot £26
Clarins Aquatic Treasures Instant Light – Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Golden Bronze £26
Clarins Aquatic Treasures Cream-to-Powder Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Grey £19
Clarins Aquatic Treasures Cream-to-Powder Iridescent Eyeshadow in Aquatic Rose £19
The Summer Bronzing Compact (below) is a large compact, which is nice because you can see your entire face in the reflection. This is a beautiful compact to carry with you in your handbag, even long after the bronzer has been used. As you can see below, the bronzer has four shades, with the lightest one being beige. The bronzer is one of those kinds of make-up products that has superpowers – it contains an anti-pollution complex in it as well as a plant micropatch to protect and maintain your skin’s natural hydration.
Two Instant Radiance Boosting Complexion Bases will also come out as part of the collection. The lighter shade is on the right hand side (below). You can use these to mix in with your current foundation or simply use it on its own because the coverage of both of them is very good. I actually mixed in the darker shade with a foundation that I currently have that is too light for me at the moment to make the perfect shade. Your skin tone can change after a holiday, calling for new foundation so these are great to mix in with your current foundation to make the perfect match for you.
Last but certainly not least are two gorgeous cream-to-powder eyeshadows that have bamboo powder for long-lasting results. I love the Aquatic Rose shade for everyday use – it’s great for the ‘no make-up’ make-up look and the Aquatic Grey is perfect for a smoky eye. The eyeshadows didn’t clump up on my eyelid either so they do have staying power!
When thinking about make-up it’s always important to also think about the canvas you are putting it on. Flawless skin = flawless make-up. And for summer you will want minimal, barely there make-up because it matches the season. An absolutely fabulous product that Clarins has is the Double Serum. Serum is the hardest working product in your skincare routine. The Double Serum has won countless awards and has quickly become a much sought-after product. The serum comes out looking like an oil but it doesn’t leave any greasy feel behind. It sinks in quickly and smells amazing. It also has 20 plant extracts to stimulate skin’s vital functions – think of it more like an elixir to feed and nourish your skin and to kick-start it into action for spring. Like any serum it takes time to work and with serums you should use them consistently so you can notice the results!
