Clarins’ Autumn makeup collection, Ladylike, looks pretty amazing with all those brand new products, and beautiful new shades of the already existing range. Let’s take a look…
The new products are:

Cream-to-powder eye shadows with Bamboo extract are promised to be smooth, lightweight and long-lasting.
The shades are: 01 Nude Beige, 02 Nude Rose, 03 Taupe, 04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth.
Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette, £35
This kit contains everything you need for your eye brows to look neat: 3 eye shadows, brow wax, highlighter, mini twizers, and two mini brushes.

I am a personally a huge fan of Clarins Instant Light Concealer, so have big hopes for this new Perfecting Base which contains oat sugar extract and helps to smooth, brighten and illuminate the eye area, and make theRead More
It seems like it’s now a tradition to show you what beauty and makeup products I take with me when I am away, just like in this post. So, since I am currently visiting my family, here is a quick update on what products I took with me.
To tell the truth, I barely wear any makeup these days but I did take quite a few products (and a lot of brushes) since people always ask me for a makeover.
I am very happy with the skincare that I’ve packed with me, including a lot of mini bottles which I am currently testing. I only wish I took more than three nail polishes, as my 5-years-old-cousin loves to borrow them
Speaking of my cousin, she insisted on inspecting my “treasures” as she described my makeup bag… When she saw the red lipstick I had, she told me that she had to put it on me, since it’d make me look gorgeous. What can I say? She does know beauty.
Clarins make the best lip products, so I knew that their version of lip crayons, which came out as a part of summer’s Colours of Brazil collection, would be amazing.
Clarins’ Lip Crayons have a luminous glossy finish, and give just enough of “statement” on the lips . They are basically like a balm in a stick form that give you a pretty pop of colour for summer. I find thatRead More

It’s been quite some time since I did the “empties” post last time. Since this weekend I was cleaning my bathroom, and found several empty bottles, I though I’d share with you. I usually throw those away immediately, but here are some that I’ve kept for the post
So, here we go…
A lot of Clarins, nothing new here. Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive Skin and Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water are simply brilliant. Both products! One of the best toner, and a great morning cleanser when you don’t have time or don’t want to spend a lot of time massaging in your cleansing balm. I will definitely re-purchase both in the future.
The Double Serum doesn’t even need an introduction, it was probably the most talked about, multi-award winning, serum in the last two years. And rightly so, it is very good.
The best on-line shop to buy Clarins from is Escentuals.
Lately I’ve been obsessed withRead More
