A couple of weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to preview Clarins' new products for Spring 2016 at the Macy's in Union Square San Francisco. Nassima Kebir, Director of PR for Clarins showed us the newest addition to the Clarins skincare line. The Clarins Multi-Active Day and Night Creams are the anti-aging starter set for us busy young gals. (See my review.) I discovered that in these creams is Clarins' anti-pollution complex that helps fight free radicals. We are all exposed to all the dirt, dust and pollution of daily life and the anti-pollution complex in 115 of Clarins' products is helping us fight the signs of aging.
Now on to one of my favorites, makeup! Maria Henry, the West Coast Brand Ambassador for Clarins was on hand to tell us the latest in the Clarins spring beauty lineup.
Clarins' makeup line has always been one of my favorites. That's because they put their skincare power in their makeup too! The Lip Perfector -- really one of my all time favorite glosses -- fights fine lines around your lip. The Rouge Eclat Lipstick has 3D pigments to make lips look plumper. There are lots of new and pretty colors for spring across all their makeup products. I'm pretty obsessed with their plum color in the Lip Perfector and the silver plum for the Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadow. Maria recommends to use fingers when applying the eyeshadow for more color payoff. Just work from the lash line and up. You don't need a primer with these eyeshadows either!
Here are the new Clarins Spring 2016 Makeup products in more detail:
Rouge Eclat Lipstick ($28)
I made a vow this spring to have more fun with my lipstick. I really love the formula for this lipstick because it really hydrates my lips. The color also has lasting power. The lipsticks contain Clarins' Nutri-Youth Complex to give you plumper lips. There are four new shades for spring which I have watched below. I'm currently wearing 24 Pink Cherry.
Lipstick Swatches: (L to R) 24 Pink Cherry, 25 Pink Blossom, 23 Hot Rose, 26 Rose Praline
This Lip Perfector gloss has been one of my favorites for years. Acacia micro-pearls and vegetable waxes contained in the gloss help to soften your lips and plump them up. I like wearing them over lipstick but on my carefree summer days, I just need a tube of my Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer and I'm good to go. I'm loving the two new shades for spring, especially 08 Plum Shimmer which just looks so good on.
Lip Perfector Swatches: 07 Toffee Pink Shimmer and 08 Plum Shimmer
Here's a photo of the Lip Perfector tip. So different from most glosses. I love how soft it feels on my lips!
Mult-Blush Cream Blush ($30)
This blush is unique. It's a cream to powder formula that glides on to your cheeks. The new spring color 05 Rose is a flattering color for every skin tone and it's really buildable. I love how it can give yourself a natural-looking glow on your cheeks. Once it is on your skin, the cream turns to lightweight powder so you barely feel it on your skin! You can also use the blush on your lips and eyes. Maria Henry says you can put it on your eye crease for a pop.
Multi Blush Swatch: 05 Rose
This cream to powder iridescent eyeshadow is my favorite from their entire spring makeup line. If you really could only get one thing, get the eyeshadow. It's so easy to apply with fingers and I like that I don't need to worry about applying a primer. The caps of the eyeshadow also match the color inside which makes finding the color you want a breeze. I've been using the silver ivory and silver pink for daily wear and the silver plum looks amazing on for a night out!
Eyeshadow Swatches: 04 Silver Ivory, 05 Silver Pink, 07 Silver Plum
