I’ve said many times how much I love Clarins cosmetics, I think they are one of the best quality brands available and hugely underrated. I’ve got a couple of pieces from the new Spring Collection, Instant Glow to show you today.
The collection promises brightening, and radiant shades, taking you from the icy hues of winter into a bright blossoming Spring.
The first item I received to review is one of new shades of Ombre Iridescent (there are four new shades) in shade Silver Ivory (£19)
I’ve blogged about the Clarins Ombre Iridescent twice before and they are beautiful. They are a cream to powder formula, and apply like a cream and dry to a powder finish, they wear well and look beautiful. Silver Ivory is to my eyes, quite gold, but it’s a glorious cool gold with a gorgeous finish. Swatches further down the page. They are not glittery, they are not even shimmery, they just have a lovely iridescent finish.
The other item I received is the Rouge Eclat Age-Defying Lipstick in Hot Rose (£19.50)
I have more Clarins lipsticks than any other brand, they are without fail, exceptional. I found this shade a bit alarming for me but its actually a real treat. Its a beautiful finish and a beautiful colour and not quite as vibrant as it appears in the tube. Its incredibly wearable and perfect for Spring.
Swatches of the two products are shown below. I’ve included a couple of pictures to capture the depth of the finishes.
There are some lovely products in the collection, including two new Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors which I love and I’ve reviewed other shades here as well as a gorgeous eyeshadow palette and a new Multi-Blush Shade.
The Clarins Instant Glow Spring Collection launches on the 10th January 2016 from Clarins counters and online
