As a beauty junky since numerous years now, I’m always very excited about new beauty make up collections and even more when it is about one of my favorite brand ! I love Clarins for a while now, theirs products are so beautiful and of great quality ! Also, they fit me so well ! Let’s discover today the Clarins Instant Glow make up Spring 2016 collection !
I tried some of the products of the collection and here is my review.
Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector
These are the first Instant light natural lip perfectors I have ever tried ! This spring, there are two new shades : 07 Toffee pink shimmer and 08 Plum Shimmer. The packaging features a tube, with a sponge-tipped applicator. The tubes are opaque, colored and contain 0.35 oz of product. I love the applicator cause it is super soft and velvety, really nice on the lips. Also, it is really easy to get the desired amount of product out : the tube is soft and easy to squeeze.
The formula is enriched with Shea Butter, licorice and Wild Mango to soften and repair, the only ingredient that makes me uncomfortable with is the mineral oil…The texture is something between a gel, lip balm and gloss and it feels amazing on the lips. Also, the scent is a beautiful caramel and a slightly sweet flavor which is pretty amazing !
The result on the lips is sheer and add a nice shine with a pop of color. The formula features a « 3D Radiance Pigments » technology to reflect light and create a radiant finish. There are not sticky sensation and the product feel very comfortable on the lips, leaving them soft and supple.
The shades 07 Toffee pink shimmer (a dusky rose) and 08 Plum shimmer (a muted berry) look absolutely beautiful and are pretty for an everyday use. The shimmer particles are so tiny that they are nearly invisible in daylight, but they absolutely help to create a gorgeous and radiant effect. You can wear them alone, or on top of lip liner/lipstick.
Retail price : $25 each
One time again, I seriously fell in love with a product ! These Ombre iridescente in 04 Silver ivory/ 05 Silver pink and 07 Silver plum are just gorgeous !!! I love the packaging in a small round pot (even the lid is in a slightly different color depending of the product’s color : so elegant !). The texture is a cream-to-powder eye-shadow with a so unbelievable glow !!
You can apply these eye shadows with your fingertip or brush, the texture is very smooth and so easy to blend ! I love all the 3 shades, they are so beautiful and luminous : stunning ! Here are the swatches :

Rouge eclat lipsticks
Sometimes I have the impression that my lips become less younger. They are dry even if I hydrate and nourish them, they have lines…so the idea of an anti-aging lipstick is really something that talks to me ! The Rouge eclat lipsticks are the first anti-aging lipstick from Clarins. With their Nutri-Youth complex, they create fuller, younger looking lips !
There are 4 new shades this spring : 23 Hot rose/ 24 Pink cherry/25 Pink blossom and 26 Rose praline. All of those are really soft and absolutely spring-matched !
Here are the swatches :
I really love these lipsticks and their satin finish is very nice on the lips ! I’m such a big fan of all the Clarins lipsticks, I love everything in them : the great packaging, the pretty nice fruity scent, the colors, the texture on my lips… They are perfect !
Retail : $27 each
