Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25 comes in a sleek red tube and there are three shades to choose from, and I was given the lightest one to try out.
My only problem is that it is too dark for me but it will be “solved” once I get some tan. I can get away with wearing this shade actually when I buff it in nicely and blend it down the neck and ears, too. It is not orangey or muddy, so it just warms up my complexion and gives it some nice warm tint.
But I am not sure why Clarins did not bring out a lighter shade…
As for the texture, it feels nice on the skin, it is lightweight and blends in nicely. I find that it evens out the skin tone but it doesn’t cover all the imperfections, as the coverage is light-to-medium, so youRead More
I have confessed my love for Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors (£17) numerous times already. So one more time one hurt, right?
Recently the brand added three new shades to the range and I was actually sent all three to show you.
So the new shades are: 04 Petal Shimmer, 05 Candy Shimmer and 06 Rosewood Shimmer.
As you already know, I love everything about Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors. They have a beautiful balmy, non-sticky formula which nourishes and moisturizes the lips and makes them smoother and softer. These “glosses” have light caramel-y/vanilla-ry scent and taste nicely, not that I am supposed to know
Below you can see the close up of the applicators.

Here is, as promised, a post about Clarins’ Rouge Prodige Lipstick in Rosy Coral which I have featured in the Peach and Coral makeup.
I actually already did a detailed review about Rouge Prodige lipsticks which you can read here. So this time I want to concentrate on the colour more.
According to Clarins, Rosy Coral isRead More
Clarins lip balms/glosses are among my favourites and I rate them highly!
I have actually already written about all of the ranges the brand has, except the Prodige Gloss.
So now it’s time for Gloss Prodige (£15.50) and it’s the shade from the Spring 2013 collection which is called Water Lily.
As all other Clarins glosses, this one is very “balmy”, it feels very hydrating (the formula contains hyaluronic acid) and moisturizing on the lips, without being too heavy or sticky. I find that such formula/texture is perfect for cold weather, as it helps to keep my lips in a good condition.
Prodige Gloss comes in a beautiful package, very high-end, and has a sponge applicator that bends. This gloss has a strong fruity scent, which I personally like, but some may not. It is written that it’s blackberry andRead More
Clarins recently launched a new range of eye shadows ( £16/$20) in 16 shades which are divided into four groups.
I actually did get three eye shadows to show you, so here they are. I have: 01 White Sparkle Illuminator, 03 Petal and 16 Vibrant Violet.
Although these are not the shades that I would choose for myself, I do like all three a lot.
01 White Sparkle is a silver glittery eye shadow which I personally use all over the lid with an eye liner and lots of mascara. It can be also used on top of other eye shadows. This is a great shade for Christmas actually.
03 Petal is a very beautiful satin baby pink that is a great all-over-the-lid shade, looks great paired with a dark shade in the outer corner. I think such shade would also look great on mature ladies.
16 Vibrant Violet is an iridescent violet with blue micro shimmer. It reminds me of the violet from this Clarins palette, so if you have missed it, you may want to pick up this eye shadow.
