The Clarins Spring Collection 2016 is all about that spring glow. (Just like Guerlain.)
A classic spring theme, but don't we all crave some light after the winter?
The collection exists out of the 5 products that I'm going to show you, the Gloss prodige, the Be Long Mascara and some new colors of the Rouge Eclat lipsticks. Let's take a look at the products!
The Ombre Iridescente is a mono eyeshadow with a cream-to-powder finish. The packaging looks pretty in the classic Clarins style: gold, with the little C. It's very pigmented and easy to work with, this is next to the palette my favorite product of this collection.
The Multi-Blush is a little cream blush. Again in that pretty, gold Clarins packaging. The color is 05 Rose, a color that looks really good on fair skin. The formula is enriched with floral waxes derived from rose, mimosa and sunflower, that helps prevent dehydration.
You can also use this blush on the lips.
Remember the Clarins 2015 Fall Collection? It had that little gold eyeshadow palette that looked like a notebook. It was limited edition, so I'm glad there is a similar product in this collection for everyone who missed it. The eyeshadow palette has exactly the same look, but in rose gold. Rose gold is such a big trend at the moment, we saw it in the Guerlain spring collection, but Zoeva also releases fully rose gold brushes this month. (Blogpost coming up of course!)
The packaging is slightly different, and the eyeshadow colors too. It's still a very 'Clarins' palette, so with a lot of nudes and natural colors. There is a warm undertone in the palette that fits the rose gold packaging. All of the colors have great pigmentation, but the first color, the champagne glitter, is a bit chunky. The eyeshadow feels soft and I love working with it for daily looks.
There are two new colors of the Eclat Minute Embellisseur Lèvres, I got the 07 Toffee Pink Shimmer. These glosses have a thicker texture and hydrate the lips for about 4 hours. They smell nice, but they also have that candy flavor that the Joli Rouge lipsticks have. A tiny downside for me.
And last, the Clarins BB Cream. There are 3 colors, and this is the 02 Medium. A bit dark, so I couldn't really try it out. All I can say is that it has some nice ingredients like acerola seeds, to hydrate, balance and recover the skin and that covers quite well for a BB Cream.
Clarins - BB Skin Detox Fluid SPF 25 in 02 Medium (€36)
Clarins - Multi-Blush in 05 Rose (€27)
Clarins - Ombre Iridescente in 06 Silver Green (€25)
Clarins - Palette 5 Couleurs in 03 Natural Glow (€47,50 - LE)
Clarins - Eclat Minute Embelliseur Lèvres in 07 Toffee Pink Shimmer (€17,50)
A pretty collection in my opinion, my favorites are the eyeshadow palette and the Ombre Iridescente. Next to the nice pigmentation, doesn't the palette look pretty?
