Clarins Opalescence Spring Makeup Collection

Clarins Opalescence Spring Makeup Collection

Apart from the Clarins Energizing toner which I bought a few years ago, to be honest, I haven’t used many Clarins products so it was a lovely surprise when I came home to a delivery from Clarins, and it wasn’t just any collection, it was a beautiful eye quartet palette from the Clarins Opalescence Spring Makeup Collection.

Clarins-Spring-makeup-2014

The collection comprises of various products for complexion to eyes to lips.

For complexion:

NEW Multi-blush RRP $54

This ultra-easy to apply cream blue transforms into a powder when it comes into contact with the skin, giving a stunning ‘sculpted cheek’ effect. Its velvety texture enhances facial contours, smooths and adds color; the result is light, fresh and natural. Available in 4 shades: Peach, Candy, Grenadine and Rosewood.

Beauty Tip: The cream of the blushes can also be applied to the lips for a natural-looking color with a lightly powdered matte finished. For a glossier finish, add a touch of Crystal Gloss Prodige.

Brighten and boost your complexion as the sunshine returns with this fusion of three warm and luminous shades. A touch of blush with a burst of pink, the face powder can also be used on its own to highlight your cheekbones.

The circular pattern suggests a halo of light emanating from the pearly white highlighter, as the opalescent pink and grey eye shadows and the vibrant plum eye liner illuminate the eyes. Use dry for a subtle result or slightly dampened for a more intense, sophisticated look that will stay radiant all day long.

This beautiful eyeshadow palette definitely caught my eye. Not only is it pleasing to the eyes, it looks beautiful upon application too. The palette is versatile, love using the pearly white in the inner corner of my eyes. This eye palette is great for day time wear and for a night time look, you can definitely make it more dramatic and intensifying the colors by using the eyeshadows wet. I also like the fact that the eyeshadows don’t crease.

The palette is packaged beautifully in luxurious gold casing with a red velvet pouch to keep it safe and clean. I can easily carry it in my handbag which is very important to me. I don’t use the applicators provided simply because I prefer to use my own brushes as I can blend with it. I also love the fact that this is a limited edition palette, a personal preference and I would definitely recommend it to my family, friends & readers.

Instant Definition Mascara RRP $49
