This Spring Clarins are bringing out  new shades of the eye shadows and the cult lip balms. But there is also a new item – a SOS Base. And knowing how well Clarins do a hybrid of makeup and skincare I have high expectations.

 

4-Colour Eye Palette (£34/$43) in 07 Lovely Pink

I am a huge fan of these palettes, and even included Oud in my yearly favouites.  Here is my review. Now I actually have one more shade – 02 Rosewood.

New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted a “New Purchases” feature in ages because I haven’t really been buying beauty products lately, but here is  finally a round-up of my newest picks (which I have already posted at my Instagram).

Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin

I have posted about Clarins cleansers and toners, and about to publish the second part. This is actually the only Clarins cleanser  (suitable for my skin type) that I haven’t tried yet, so it was about time. So far, I enjoy using it so expect a feature.

Want It: Caudalie French Kiss Tinted Lip Balm

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara Review and Photos. Rave

Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara really caught my attention, and I’ve decided to buy one, without reading any reviews before head. I have also picked up the famous Phenomen’ Eyes to see for myself how it works.  When I came home I saw that I’ve  got the Noir Couture in Brown…
Yes, I have a new thing, taking photos of makeup with my books that is.

At first I wanted to exchange it but then I’ve realised that I have tried all kinds of mascaras from green and blue to purple, and even oxblood, but never a brown one, so it was about time [I did buy a brown mascara from Benefit ages ago but forgot about it, and it dried out].

First of all, let’s take a moment to appreciate the
