Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin Review

There are a lot of discussions whether or not eye cream is a necessity. I personally believe in eye creams and use them regularly since my early twenties. I have very dry skin and a good eye cream is a must have for me, otherwise, the delicate skin in  that area feels dry and looks wrinkly.

My latest eye cream love was this Lierac Diopticreme and in July I’ve picked up Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (£27/$35 for 20 ml).

Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin Review

This is a rich cream that is formulated especially for dry skin, but it doesn’t feel heavy and doesn’t take forever to soak in . I personally find that it moisturizes, nourishes  and optically makes the skin look smoother and, younger (since it visually improves the appearance).

I don’t exactly have

Clarins Lip Balm Crayons Review and Swatches

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 that

Five Pink Blushes for Spring

Do you remember my post about the pink makeup products for Spring? Pink is always the hottest shade for the new season, I personally believe that  rose-tinted cheeks instantly changes everything! You look fresher, and even younger, in a way.

This is why I’ve decided to show you five different variants that you may like…

This is a good option for those that are afraid of pigmented  and “greasy” blushes, you can get a very sheer coverage with Multi-Blush, plus  the texture is more cream-to-powder, so should work for all skin types. This  is the most natural shade out of five.

Clarins Summer Collection Bronzer and Lip Oil Review and Swatches

I have already reviewed Clarins eye shadows from their summer collection but I have two more products to share about.

Clarins Summer Collection Bronzer and Lip Oil Review and Swatches 1

The product that I really love is Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (£30). It is absolutely huge, comes in a nice packaging and with a decently sized mirror. You get three shades of bronzer with one being  shimmery and two  – matte, there is also an  apricot blush. You can use each shade individually, or mix. The texture of the blush is softer than the texture of the bronzers so when products are mixed together they give you that nice luminous glow and created that sun-kissed effect. This bronzer actually made it to my monthly favourites.

Although I have pretty light skin tone, I don’t find it to be muddy or too orange on me. But I use it lightly, obviously.

I think Blush & Bronzing Compact is a
