Ah with Autumn just around the corner I find myself getting rather excited by all the new launches out there, today I want to share with you a few new products that have been created for Clarins
Autumn collection. This collection is truly elegant and feminine, with a captivating range of colours there is something to suit everyone.
Ombre Matte Cream to Powder Eyeshadow £19*
I have to say I was most excited about these gorgeous eyeshadows, the cream to powder formula is genius the matte finish is just divine. I really love how these apply, I like to use my fingers for a quick wash of colour on the lids and the lasting power is incredible so definitely one to purchase if your on the look out for a long lasting shadow. There are six shades to choose from; 01 Nude Beige, 01 Nude Rose, 03 Taupe, 04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth. Each and every shade has a neutral feel to it and are such easy shades to wear, together or alone. I particularly love the look of Sparkle Grey, I think that would look gorgeous over the festive season. The shades pictured above from left to right in the swatches image are; 02 Nude Rose, 04 Rosewood & 06 Earth. Beautiful shades indeed!
Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base £22*
This little tube of goodness basically prepares the eyelid to create a smooth even base for whichever shadow you choose to wear. It promises to even, brighten and give radiance to the eyelids and I have to say it does a pretty good job at all three. It does feel a little thicker to the primers I am used to but I think that’s because of the oat sugar extracts which help to smooth the eyelids and the mattifying powders provide the long lasting hold, it’s a bit like your applying concealer to the lids at first but it definitely smoothes out and creates the perfect canvas for any shadow application and makes it last without any creasing.
Eye Quartet Mineral Palette £32*
Just wow, look at how beautiful this palette is! Pure Luxury. This is the all new ‘Skin tones’ shade collection and includes a variety of sophisticated colours from soft beiges to warm browns to gorgeous taupes. The perfect palette for taking your look from day to night. I love each and every shade apart from the top left shade you see only because that shade seems to be the least pigmented, the whole palette is super pigmented and reminds me a little of the ombre cream to powder pots but that one shade just doesn’t seem to work for me that well. You can also apply each shade wet to really intensify the look and make those eyes pop which is why I think it’s such a great versatile palette.
A couple of items I don’t have to show you today but are also new to the Clarins Autumn collection are the Rouge Eclat Lipsticks £19.50, these look seriously beautiful and they are also the first age-defying lipsticks from Clarins. They promise to be long lasting and there are five shades to choose from.
For all you brow lovers out there we have a fabulous brow kit, called the Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette £35. This palette includes everything you need to create gorgeous brows, it includes; three brow powders, a setting gel and a beige/pink shadow to enhance the brow bone. Not to mention cute applicators and a mini spooly!
Last but not least if your one for a spot of eyeliner you must check out the Limited Editon 3 dot liner, this is one I’ve not tried before but I really love the new brown shade which is not only perfect for AW14 but also great as an everyday liner if your looking to soften up your usual black liner everyday look.
I hope you enjoyed checking out these new beauties from Clarins, have you added any to your wish list this Autumn!?
