Clarins Be Long Mascara Review. Rave

I was asked about the Clarins Be Long mascara so many times… This is why I am happy to share my opinion about it.

Lately I’ve been loving volumizing mascaras that give a real wow-effect, such as Chanel’s Le Volume de Chanel and Max Factor’s Excess Volume Extreme Impact , so I was a bit afraid that this one could be too subtle. But, luckily, you can get not only “natural looking lashes” with this mascara. You can achieve more dramatic results, too.

Clarins Be Long Mascara Review rave brushBe Long has a small rubbery bendy  brush which  makes the application very easy, you can also apply it to the bottom lashes, without getting the product everywhere. Plus you can get even the smallest and the shortest lashes with it. Win-win!

So what are the results? You get

During the last several weeks I had a lot of stress, did not sleep that well, plus I have to take some medicine for three months, among other things. Why am I even telling that? So that you can release that my skin doesn’t look fantastic, unfortunately.

That’s when lill’ things like Clarins’ Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base are like life complexion savers.

Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose Review and SwatchesI actually have a lot of different bases but most of the times, I just skip this step altogether. But not now!

This is a  lightweight base that doesn’t feel greasy or oily on the skin, plus I’d say that is makes the skin softer (yes, I did touch it) and smoother. I don’t have particularly large pores  or major imperfections, but I would say that it definitely improves (visually) the look of the skin.

With my tired, glow-lacking, post-winter  complexion I can  really appreciate the

Clarins Double Serum Review. Rave

I am a huge fan of Clarins skincare, as you all know, so that is why I was excited to try their Double Serum. This was the most promoted Clarins product in years and the campaign was huge.  There were a lot of different reviews, a lot of people raved, some  were put off by the mineral oil. And I’ve decided to wait, and use up the whole bottle before sharing my experience.

Clarins Double Serum Review RaveAs you can tell from the photo above, I did use up the whole bottle. And… I did love this serum a lot.

It is  a two-phased system Hydric + Lypidic system, which means that you mix it before applying to the face. It is labelled as “age control with 20 anti-ageing pure plant extracts”, and I was told that it will be more effective if you are 25+.

So what is my impression?

This AW season I was sick twice, and this product literally saved my skin! You know how the skin can react to a long-time cold? Yes, that. And this serum was the only thing I’ve used morning and night. It literally brought my dry, flaky and dull skin “back to life”.

And what about the general effect?

I am

I have already reviewed Clarins  Instant Concealer  which is pretty awesome. But what about the foundation from the line?

Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation (£35 for 30 ml) comes in a glass jar which is very chic and luxurious to look at,  but not very practical (especially when you are in a hurry) in so many ways. But that is the only thing that’s not my favourite in this foundation, everything else I adore.

Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation Review and Swatches

“Anti-Ageing, Replenishes, Illuminates.” This is how the brand describes the product, and I would agree.

I have dry skin, and I love everything [yes, I do realize that I've already said that] about this foundation, it is so good! I don’t even know where to start…

The Illuminating claims? It delivers! I was sick at home for a week and this foundation instantly (yes, the name speaks for itself) transformed my skin from dull  into a glowing and polished version (of course, with the help of the right skincare). Seriously, I was

Clarins Instant Concealer Review and Swatches

I am personally aTouche Eclat girl” when it comes to under eye products, although it is a highlighter, not a concealer, I find that it works for me! But sometimes, that is not enough. If only I had more hours of sleep.

I have very dry skin, so can’t imagine putting heavy, full coverage concealers/correctors under the eyes, as those would make me look 10 years older.

That’s why I was curious to try Clarins’ Insant Concealer.

Clarins-Instant-Concealer--Review-and-Swatches 1

I have shade No2, which is described as 02 pinky-beige, and which is a perfect match for my skin tone.

I love the design of this concealer, you don’t have to put your fingers in it, or  use the attached brush, like with most  concealer-type products, so it’s a good one to have in a kit, too.

The formula is
