I can’t believe it’s time to talk about Autumn launches already but I do love a good make up launch and when it’s Clarins I’m even more excited! I’ve been trying the new Autumn collection for a fair few weeks now and I have a few favourites to share with you, this collection really focuses on the eyes but for those lip product lovers out there don’t worry there are a couple of new beauties you won’t want to miss out on.
Let’s talk shadows first, how adorable is this Limited Edition 5-Colour Eye Palette
it’s the perfect travel palette because it’s so compact and it also features 5 gorgeous wearable shades; beige, soft pink, shimmering taupe and a matte and shimmering brown. You could easily use just one or two of these shades for a quick wash of colour over the lids or go more dramatic with the warm brown shades to create more of a sultry smokey look. It’s the perfect day to night palette and it also has a large mirror inside too, how perfect! There are also 2 new Ombre Matt shadows
that have been added to the collection, the Ombre Matt shadows aren’t new to Clarins but the shades Carbon and Heather are and they looks stunning. I have the shade Heather and it’s a beautiful warm taupe shade with purple tones, it’s a really unique colour and the cream to power finish gives a quick and effortless look in no time.
Next is the Crayon Kohl
, I have the shade 10 True Violet and there is also another new shade which is 01 Carbon Black. These pencils are the perfect way to instantly emphasise the eyes, Carbon black allows you to create an ultra-dark sultry look and True Violet adds the pop of colour for Autumn. True Violet is perfect for those who are afraid of colour but would like to experiment as it’s not too bright, it’s a deep violet so it’s perfect for adding a subtle amount of colour. You can even smoke the looks out using the natural hair brush included, perfect for getting rid of harsh lines and making everything look softer.
One of my favourite products from the collection is the Eye Brow Pencil, I have the shade Soft Blonde, there are 3 colours in the brow collection available; Soft Blonde, Dark Brown and Light Brown. I did wonder if this could stop me from using my all time favourite Anastasia Brow Wiz and I can tell you it actually has and is now included in my every day brow routine, the colour Soft Blonde matches my brows perfectly and the pencil itself has quite a firm texture and a matte finish. I’d say it’s there prefect day pencil, I still love my ABH Brow Wiz as I can be a little more precise but I do still really enjoy using the new Clarins Brow Pencil plus the large spooly on the end is fabulous for grooming my brows before I start on them.
Now onto the star of the show, the new Rouge éclat Lipsticks
… Oh my gosh guys these are the most gorgeous lipsticks ever the formula is to die for and the shade Tawny Rose is my new favourite lipstick ever! Yes I am going that far it’s a big statement to make but let me tell you why. First of all there are two new lipstick shades, 21 Tawny Rose and 22 Red Paprika both shades didn’t actually excited me all that much upon first glance but when I tried them out my oh my I fell in love. Red Paprika is the perfect Autumn Red it is a very warm brick red that can be built up or worn more sheer, even though you can sheer them out slightly the colour is still intense and lasts all day. Tawny Rose, my ultimate favourite which I thought I had lost the other day but thankfully found is the most beautiful nude rose shade. It’s a deeper nude and a great everyday colour, it has a warm undertone and feels just like a lip balm to wear (to see me wearing this shade click here for my lip augmentation post to see images)
This beautiful formula protects the lips against dehydration and provides instant comfort, seriously if you are going to try anything from the collection I’d go for these I literally need every colour now because the formula is so gorgeous.
