(Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour swatches L-R: 03 Silver Taupe, 01 Golden Peach, 02 Golden Sand)
So the Clarins Summer 2016 make-up collection is the dreamiest thing I've seen in a while! I've fallen in love with each and every one of the products, so I thought I'd give you a quick rundown of them all...
Clarins Fix Make-Up Spray: I am obsessed with this stuff. I already own MAC Fix+, but never use it as it drenches my face and leaves me flapping around for 5 minutes waiting for it to dry.
Clarins' offering, however, is a super-fine, lightweight mist, which sets as soon as it hits the skin. It feels soothing and hydrating, and I find my foundation stays in place much longer when I use it. It also smells gorgeous thanks to a mix of grapefruit extract and organic rose water, and the bottle looks adorable on my dressing table!
Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (Limited Edition): These DO NOT budge. The formula is very creamy and pigmented and glides on smoothly, but once they set, they last all day. They work beautifully as a super quick one-wash-wonder, adding a gorgeous shimmer to the lids. My fave shade is Golden Sand; a warm antique gold which I reckon would suit most skintones.
Clarins Double Fix Mascara: This is a transparent topcoat which you apply over your usual mascara to make it waterproof. It's a great product to pack in your suitcase for summer, and you can also use it to tame your brows, which is what I've been using it for recently.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Red Berry: This is probably the glossiest lip product I own. It makes my lips look shiny, plump and healthy, but it's not sticky in the slightest. It feels comfortable and nourishing thanks to a combination of hazelnut oil, annatto oil and jojoba oil, and it leaves a pretty yet subtle rosy tint. It's become my go-to everyday lip product.
There's also a Limited Edition Bronzing & Blush Compact in the collection, which I don't have but it looks beautiful too - see it here.
