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?
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 withoutRead More
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.
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 isRead More
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…
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, IRead More
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.

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 whichRead More
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.
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 isRead More
