Clarins Face Contouring Palette & Brush Review and Swatches

I have already posted a preview of the Clarins Face Contouring Palette & Brush on the website and on Instagram, so here is a full review.

As you can tell, contouring is not going anywhere soon, and I was personally excited to try what Clarins have to offer, as they never go wrong with their launches.

It comes in a signature light gold slick packaging, contains three colours: matte beige, bronze and rose to create definition. There is also a brush and a card with useful illustrations on how you could use each shade.

I am personally a huge fan of the brush, it allows a precise application and hugs the curves of the face perfectly. I love applying the products with this brush and then, if needed, blend it out a bit with a fluffier one.

As for the product itself, the formula is plant-enriched, so, as always with Clarins, you get the skincare benefits. The texture is

Clarins Summer Collection Bronzer and Lip Oil Review and Swatches

I have already reviewed Clarins eye shadows from their summer collection but I have two more products to share about.

Clarins Summer Collection Bronzer and Lip Oil Review and Swatches 1

The product that I really love is Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (£30). It is absolutely huge, comes in a nice packaging and with a decently sized mirror. You get three shades of bronzer with one being  shimmery and two  – matte, there is also an  apricot blush. You can use each shade individually, or mix. The texture of the blush is softer than the texture of the bronzers so when products are mixed together they give you that nice luminous glow and created that sun-kissed effect. This bronzer actually made it to my monthly favourites.

Although I have pretty light skin tone, I don’t find it to be muddy or too orange on me. But I use it lightly, obviously.

I think Blush & Bronzing Compact is a

Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour Review and Swatches

Clarins released four shades of  Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour, as a part of their summer 2016 makeup collection, and I have all the shades to share with you. (See other colour products from the collection  here).

Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour Review and Swatches 3

These are truly brilliant.  I’ve worn each shade several times already, and I am ready to share my experience.

While I haven’t tested them in the pool, or the sea (I wish) yet, I can report that they are really long-lasting, as promised. They stay on all day long.  I have tried wearing Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadows with primer, and without, and both results are impressive. I don’t have oily eye lids, so these eye shadows last during the whole working day without creasing or fading, even without the primer.

You can use these both with your fingers or with a brush which is extremely easy. Just make sure you blend the

Clarins Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

Meet the star of Clarins Spring 2016 release, the Natural Glow 5-Colour Shadow Palette (£33). This is a quint which comes in the most beautiful compact, it is a beautiful reflective copper.

Clarins Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches

Inside you get the following shades:

  • a pale pink glitter (my personal favourite), it gives that beautiful multi-dimensional effect; just make sure you are being careful with your application, as it can get all over the face, as all glitter shades.
  • the next one is a matte ivory shade which will be a my-skin-by-better for light skin-tones and a highlighter for darker skin tones.
  • metallic copper, with peachy pink under tones, the most unique one from the metallic trio.
  • metallic bronze, will look flattering on  pretty much everyone.
  • dark purple, a great shade to use as a liner or for the outer corner.

All five,

Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Red Paprika Review and Swatches

Since we were talking about lipsticks yesterday, I thought that’d be a good idea to share about the lipstick which is a part of Clarins’ Autumn collection.

I was sent Rouge Eclat in the shade 22 Red Paprika (there is also one called 21 Tawny Rose).

Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in  22 Red Paprika Review and Swatches 1Clarins lip products are fantastic, and  Rouge Eclat is not an exception.  It feels amazing on the lips, almost like a lip balm but with an intense colour. According to the brand, it protects against dehydration, and boosts collagen. And in reality Rouge Eclat one of those lipsticks that feel comfortable on and  stay on nicely, without any drying.

My friend who is not a lipstick wearer who tried this lipstick was impressed that the formula makes it really easy to apply the product as it glides on and doesn’t make a mess.

One more thing that
