Clarins Multi-Blush in Rose [Review]

PhotoGrid_1460299305197_resized

Clarins Multi-Blush in Rose (no. 05). This is a natural, long-lasting blush for lips and cheek. It glides on with the ease of a cream that then transforms into a powder with the heat of one’s skin. Not sure how this powdery feature will work on the lips.
It moisturizes the skin with a blend of rose, mimosa and sunflower waxes. Also, has a ‘Light Optimizing’ complex that adds radiance. The blush is not quite the best as a blush for my skin tone but could be used with a light hand as a pink highlighter.

Clarins Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadow in Silver Plum [Review & Swatches]

PhotoGrid_1459218321685_resized

The new Clarins Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Iridescent Eyeshadow in Silver Plum (no. 07) was released earlier this year as a part of the Spring 2016 Collection. This is a gorgeous purple taupe, a deep smokey lavender with a silver undertone.

Clarins have blended iridescent, soft-focus pigments with bamboo powder for stay-true brilliance and long-lasting wear. A Vitamin E derivative keeps lids comfortable. Casts a soft, pearlescent glow during the day; a stylized, high-voltage iridescence at night.

This shadow combines the ease and comfort of a cream with the long wear if a powder. It’s gives a sparkling not glittery finish. It is very smooth and the texture in the little pot is a cross between the Chanel Ombres and the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. This shadow does hold up on for at least 8hrs with or without a cream base with minimal creasing.  I do however always use an eyeshadow primer due to my oily lids. 

These shadows are gentle enough for sensitive eyes and are dermatologist- and ophthalmologist-tested.

The new #Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector shades are no.07 Toffee Pink Shimmer and no. 08 Plum Shimmer. @clarinsnews
These are gorgeous shades and are super glossy with no detectable shimmer. The wear is comfortable and plum shimmer leaves a slight stain. Toffee Pink gives me the my lips but better look.

Clarins and FEED 10

Clarins has teamed up with Lauren Bush Lauren’s FEED again for a great initiative,  National Million Meal Mission.

5a5463b9-3c84-42c1-a8f9-3ec453c44cd1

Clarins and FEED are proud to have launched the National Million Meal Mission. This new, exciting venture aims to provide 1,200,000 meals to children around the world in 17 days. This campaign started on April 22nd, and will end this coming Sunday, May 8th. Retailers supporting this great cause are Macy’s, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales. Each will be offering will be offering a variety of  FEED 10 pouches filled with deluxe Clarins products. The FEED pouches are available at least online at Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Saks depending on what you purchase. Bloomingdale’s – with the purchase of any two full-size Clarins products; Nordstrom – with your $75 purchase; Macy’s – any $75 Clarins purchase. They are most likely available in store as well.
This is a great cause and I encourage everyone to pick up a FEED pouch. Food insecurity is a growing problem in developed countries can you imagine how hard it is for children in poorer countries to receive proper and sufficient nutrition. If you can’t pick up a bag you can still help by volunteering at your local food bank and food drives.

To date Clarins has provided over 10 million meals through the FEED initiative. That’s 10, 109,165 meals to be exact. Clarins strongly believes that beauty come from the heart and is expressed by actions directed to helping those less fortunate.
