I love it when brands bring out seasonal collections and this spring, Clarins are bringing it all over my face!! Below are some snaps & swatches of some of the products from the new Colour Breeze collection, available from February 2012. Enjoy!
Joli Rouge Lipstick; Baby Pink & Poppy Red Joli Rouge Sheer Lipstick; Pink Coral & Pink Magnolia
These lipsticks are sheer, gloss but incredibly non-sticky. In addition (& most importantly) they aren't in the slightest drying on the lips. I had never tried Clarins lipsticks before these & I am genuinely blown away. I have been wearing Poppy Red a lot; it looks glossy & sheer, but still with a brilliant pop of even red.
The bullets are fabulously packaged, in heavy high-shine silver casing. Inside the lid is a silicone seal, that will keep the lipsticks hydrated & also ensures the lid wont be flying off in your handbag! These will retail for £16.50 which I think is super reasonable for such a high quality product.
Baby Pink Poppy Red Pink Coral Pink Magnolia
Gloss Prodige Intense Colour & Shine Lip Gloss
Raspberry (L) and Candy (R)
These glosses are indeed intensely shiny! They are packed with shimmery particles that really intensify the depth of colour, without being chunky or gritty. Super pretty & there are 8 shades in total to choose from. The Raspberry feels a little dark for a srping collection, but is a very wearable colour nonetheless. These will retail for £15.50 a pop, but if glosses are your 'thing', you'll love the quality of these.
Limited Edition Instant Light Blush
Vitamin Pink (L) and Coral Tonic (R)
Without a doubt, these are the stand-out products for me. I adore cream blushes & these are off the chart! They have the finest of finest shimmers, with the Vitamin Pink (weird name?!)having a pay-off that NARS Orgasm should have had - not chunky or glittery, just a gorgeous natural glowing sheen. I have worn the pink every day for the last week. These are limited edition, so scoop them up while you can; they will retail for the princely sum of £19 each, but are worth twice that.
These sponge applicators work a treat, but they squelch when you pull them out the bottles!
There is a variety of other products, including a gorgeous Limited Edition Face & Blush palette (£30) and a Limited Edition Eye Quartet Mineral Palette (£30). I haven't focused on these as I haven't yet tried them out, but I will!
Is there anything you'll be picking up from this Spring Collection?
