Never underestimate the power of a good base! Today I want to show you a really great one - Instant Light Eye Perfecting by Clarins.

Why do I like it?

Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base Review

As the name suggests, it instantly evens out the eye lids. And I truly appreciated the effect when I was doing the makeup on a  client who had really a lot  of blue veins showing through. This products created a perfect canvas to begin the work with.

The formula smooths the skin, and makes the eye shadows stick to it better. Just make sure that you apply a thin layer and spread it out evenly. That makes the eye shadows last a lot longer without

I know that a lot of people were  waiting for the review of Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows, but I wanted to take my time, and test them out properly. And, finally, I am ready to share my impression.

This Autumn the brand released 6 shades of  what they describe as “new generation cream to powder eye shadows”:01 Nude Beige, 02 Nude Pink, 03 Taupe,  04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth.

Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows Review and Swatches Nude Pink RosewoodThese come with a signature red Clarins packaging, in a cute lightweight plastic jar with a golden lid on top.  Despite the fact that it is not glass, the products still looks high-end.

So what about the formula?

I’d describe it as a very well pressed creamy powder. The finish is matte (at least in the shades that I have), so they look very natural on the eye lids.

It is

So here is a look at another product from Clarins AW makeup collection that I was given to show you.

And it is an eye brow palette - Clarins Kit Sourcils Pro Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette which looks like this…

Clarins Kit Sourcils Pro Perfect Eyes and Brows Palette Review and Swatches look

It contains three different eye brow shadows shades, wax, eye brow highlighter, mini tweezers, mini spoolie and a brush/applicator. It is pretty much everything that you need for a personal use. This palette is especially good when you are on the go! It is also a handy addition to any makeup kit, it barely takes any space, and has almost everything that you need for your professional work. Unless you are a Pro eye brows specials, obviously.

Unlike some kits, were the tools can be completely useless, this is not the case.  They all are very good, actually, I

Post-Sun Beauty Products: My Picks

I know that it is already September, which means the end of summer, and I am posting about the after-sun products. But I know that a lot of my readers are still going on holidays… Plus  new season will be upon us in a blink of an eye, it is always like that.

So here are the two products that I’ve been using post-sun on my face and body this summer on my holiday.

After Sun products Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face and Decollete and La Roche-Posay Hydrating After-Sun Melt-In Gel reviewThis pic was taken in Greece on a small beach which the locals showed us, not far from Olympus.

Face: Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face and Decollete

I still have to find a Clarins product which I don’t like…This is not an exception. It feels so soothing and hydration on the face, the texture is light and smooth. It calms and moisturizes the skin, and smells amazing, too. Clarins also promise that it prolongs the tan.

I like the fact that it comes with a pump which

Recently I’ve shared my top 5 beauty tips about beach holidays, and I have actually included a photo of  sun protection and after sun beauty products that I took with me. So, I thought, I’d share about the sun protection ones first.

I already did a post about my favourite product for face, which is from Avene here, so this time it will be about the body cream.

Sun Protection creams Avene and Clarins Clarins Sun Care Soothing Cream Moderate Protection UVB 20

And it is Clarins Sun Care Soothing Cream Moderate Protection UVB 20  which is all kinds of awesome. I used to take several sun protection body products with different SPF and different formulas (I love oils), but now I just can’t be bothered.

As for this Clarins cream –  it is my favourite, as you’ve already guessed. It doesn’t feel greasy or oily but, at the same time, it is
