Makeup4all Recommends: Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50
I have been using Clarins sunscreen products for years now for holidays. This year they reformulated their range which I have not tried yet (but heard good things about it from my friends). However, today I want to share about the “city SPF” which I really love, and which is the product to use all year round but especially during summer for obvious reasons.
Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a gem! It is a firm favourite of a lot of people, myself included, and it is easy to see why. This sunscreen feels very lightweight, silky and non-sticky on the face, the formula is very thin, water-like which makes it undetectable once applied. I love the fact that it doesn’t leave the white cast and looks great on its own or underneath the foundation.
No one wants yet another layer on their face when it’s hot and humid, and Multi-Protection SPF doesn’t
Since I am wearing an eye liner (almost) every single day, it has to be the best possible product on the market which meets all my expectations.
And Clarins Graphik Ink Eyeliner does.
I honestly cannot think of anything I did not like about this liner. It is ultra black, glossy, glides on like a dream, does not drag the skin. It also stayed on pretty well on me, I did not have any smudges during the the day.
A special shout out to the tip. It is the only type that I use on myself, and it allows both thin and thick application. While I love using thinner liners on others, I myself have hooded eyes so want my liner to be relatively thick without going over numerous times. It truly allows any type of lines.
Needless to say I’ve used it up completely.
I am a big fan and would definitely repurchase at some point. When I get bored of trying new ones. Currently I am using byTerry one, and it is also incredible.
The price is £21/$27, and considering that it will last you for a few months, I find it to be a good deal. Clarins is available from Selfridges,Harrods, Escentual.com, Nordstorm, Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.
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
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 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).
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
