Since today we are talking about the new blushes for Spring 2014, it’s a perfect time to review the brand new Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Blushes.
These are available in four shades and I have two to show you – 02 Candy and 03 Grenadine (The other two shades are 01 Peach and 04 Rosewood).
They come in a signature Clarins packaging and look sleek and chic. Here is a close up of the shades.
The formula of these blushes, as promised, is light and applies smoothly. As for the texture, it is not very creamy, definitely not oily or greasy, but I wouldn’t call it cream-to-powder, I’d say they have a velvety finish, so girls with normal and oily skin should like them ( the blushes), too.
Multi-Blush are pretty fool-proof, as you get a very subtle hint of colour, so it’s hard to apply too much. Even if you have light skin (and I do) and use a rather bright looking shade like Grenadine. But, of course, you can build up the intensity, if you want.
The products blends/melts into the skin and does look like your natural blush.
As for the shades, 02 Candy is a pretty pink, which is not too cool or warm toned, and 03 Grenadine is a reddish shade, perfect for that natural flush. Both have very fine golden shimmer, which just adds some dimension.
Clarins promise that these blushers contain floral waxes from rose, mimosa, jojoba and sunflower which protect skin against dehydration. Great bonus, no?
