Clarins' new Garden Escape Spring 2015 Makeup Collection brings in the softness and beauty of nature to your face. I've been enjoying all of these really beautiful colors in anticipation for the warmer weather ahead.
I was obsessed with the Clarins lip balm crayons last year and this year, Clarins does it again introducing their new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector ($23). It's a soft gel lip balm that glides on really smooth and leaves your lips glossy (not sticky) with color. I love the natural look and the tints of color in the range. Get fuller and hydrated lips with this new formula that contains hyaluronic acid.
I have four colors which I have swatched above. From left to right: 02 Coral, 01 Rose, 05 Red, 06 Rosewood.
Next for lips is the new Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil ($23). I have it in 02 Rasberry. This is a lip care treatment with Clarins' wonderful oil formula that gives your lips a beautiful hydrated and smooth look. Contains hazelnut oil and organic jojoba oil. The formula is non-greasy or sticky. Your lips will look shiny and feel so smooth!
This season's Garden Escape 6-Colour Eye Palette ($45) is pure, soft luxury. I love the double ended applicator brush/sponge that I can really use applying my eye makeup. The colors are so beautifully soft with pearly whites, pinks, taupe and two shades of green. The palette works perfectly for pretty nude looks for the day as well as intense looks for evening. The colors are buildable and blend together really well.
I've swatched all the eyeshadow colors here so you can see how pretty they look!
To complement all the soft looks is a new shade Sweet Rose for the Blush Prodigy Illuminating Cheek Color ($32). One of the best things about this blush palette are the complementing highlight shades so you can really get that glow for your face without having multiple palettes.
I've been trying the new Clarins Everlasting Foundation with SPF 15 ($39). It's a light, long-wearing formula that I love. The new glass bottle is beautiful too. The foundation contains light-optimizing complex which helps diffuse your fine lines and imperfections while making you skin look fresh. I like it also because you really can buff it out and look like you are wearing no foundation. My skin also feels so soft with it. I recommend using it with the Radiance Boosting Complexion Base ($37) which really helps to illuminate the skin even more. They are magic together! I also just wear this alone without foundation just to give my skin an even base.
I have two colors: (left to right) 105 Nude and 107 Beige.
