Clarins can you ever go wrong? Let me tell you that the NEW Clarins Instant Glow Spring Make-up Collection is beautiful! Not only is the packaging gorgeous but the product performance is also amazing. Clarins has always been my go-to for eyeshadows especially. The pigments are amazing and wear really well throughout the day. I love really shimmery beautiful neutrals and Clarins really knows how to do them. And I can tell people are excited about these products because my first picture of these (below) got nearly 300 likes on my Instagram page @jamierockers!
So what is in the new collection (launched from Jan 2016)? Well, first of all there is the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (RRP £18). This is a beautiful lip gloss stain. I’ve got the Plum Shimmer (below) and it is really gorgeous. The glosses remind me of Lancome Juicy Tubes in the way that they are incredibly moisturising and feel like a beautiful jelly on your lips. I love a good lip gloss because I think it makes my lips look plumper. These contain 3D pigments which smooth and protect lips which is great for winter (hello, wind and chapped lips!). The applicator is also sponge tip so it’s quite handy for create a no-mess look.
And while we are on the subject of lips, why not discuss the NEW Rouge Eclat Age-Defying Lipsticks (RRP £19.50)?
There are four new shades and I’ve got my hands on the Hot Rose (below). These are lipsticks that are going to work as hard for you as you do for them. By that I mean for the price you get not only lipstick but real anti-ageing benefits as well. These lippies help reduce fine lines and protect lips with added Vitamin E and plant waxes like jojoba and sunflower. Again, the pigment is amazing and the lipsticks feel smooth and lovely on the lips.
I’ve spoken about Clarins eyeshadows as being amazing and I don’t take my word back on that. The NEW Ombre Iridescent Shadows (RRP £19) are GORGEOUS! And these will last you forever. I have two from a previous collection nearly a year ago that I use almost everyday and still have plenty of. These are just the kind of eyeshadows I go for – pearlescent shimmery pots of goodness. They are really easy to blend and last through the day. I’ve got Silver Green and Silver Plum below.
So what do they look like on? Well….tadah! I’ve got a full face of Clarins (below) minus the foundation (Tarte Amazonian Clay). I’ve used the Silver Green on the eyelids and the Instant Light Lip Perfector on the lips. You can see that the gloss makes the lips look more plump and noticeable (at least they do in my eyes).
And last but not LEAST at all, I’ve managed to get my hands on the most beautiful palette ever. This NEW Limited Edition Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette (RRP £33) has five gorgeous rose-bronze shadows for every day. I honestly think these are the only eyeshadows you need – all of these will take you from day to night, easily blendable, lasts for ages. You can layer them, build them up and they are super sophisticated. Take them to the office, on a date, anywhere. A great gift for her for Valentine’s Day as well!
