Clarins Sunshine makeup collection for Summer 2016 is just WOW! So far my favourite summer release I’ve seen.
So why do I say it is so special?
There is a new shade of Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil (£19) in 03 Red Berry. Considering how insanely popular these are – it will be a sell out. Clarins Lip Oil is a non-sticky oil derived from plant extracts:oil, annatto oil and organic jojoba oils.
Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (£18) in 01 Golden Peach, 02 Golden Sand, 03 Silver Taupe and 04 Copper Brown. They are LE!
These should be absolutely amazing, I am hoping for a thin formula which will last even in the heat. Here is an official description: “A soft cream formula which glides easily onto the eyelids. Fine pearl particles provide shimmering colour to subtly illuminate the eyes and bitter orange tree wax helps to create a protective, filmogenic shield against water and humidity to ensure long-lasting waterproof hold.”
Another product which I am personally excited about is Double Fix’ Mascara (£20) which is a new and an improved formula. It can be used over any mascara to make it waterproof or to keep the brows in place.
Regular readers will know how obsessed I am with such kind of product from Anastasia, so it is nice to see Clarins bring out their version.
Although I am wearing a sweater and am drinking tea as I type this, I bet Fix’ Make-Up (£24) will be a must have for summer. Described as an “ultra-fine, cooling mist that sets make-up by forming an invisible, fixing veil over the face. It is hydrating and acts as an urban shield” it sounds like a must-have for every makeup bag. Some of the ingredients are: aloe vera, allantoin, grapefruit extract and organic rose floral water. I bet a lot of girls will love that pink bottle, too.
And of course, there is a Bronzing & Blush Compact (£30). Clarins are famous for their seasonal bronzers, and every year they bring out a new one. This time it is embossed with a sun inspired motif and is a mix of copper, terracotta, golden tones and an apricot pearlescent blush.
