Clarins Colour Breeze Spring Look 2012 Makeup Swatches

 This year’s spring collection from Clarins is called Colour Breeze, and it’s all about a flawless complexion emphasised with delicate candy colours. The tender shades of Spring are revamped with radiant tones and shimmering pastels, making for the perfect post-winter blues buster.

Enhance your natural beauty with this mix of limited edition and new products…


Clarins Colour Breeze Face & Blush Powder (Limited Edition)

The centrepiece of the Colour Breeze collection, this whimsical compact is made up of a luminous translucent finishing powder, and is embossed with three complimentary colours of beige, peach and rose. Use separately for a perfecting and mattifying makeup finisher, or swirl all of the shades together for a perfect complexion boost and a dose of healthy colour. The pinwheel floral design of this limited edition compact makes it a spring must have!

Clarins Instant Light Blush (Limited Edition)
in 01 Vitamin Pink and 02 Coral Tonic

 These brand new limited edition blushes are a great way to infuse a bit of post-winter colour without going overboard. The fluid texture is subtly shimmery for high definition radiance, and provides a beautiful flush of natural-looking colour with complete ease of use. The specially designed doe-foot applicator allows you to dot the colour exactly where you need it.

Vitamin Pink 01 is a healthy-looking candy pink with coral undertones and silver shimmer, while Coral Tonic 02 is a radiance-boosting sweet peachy hue shot through with pink shimmer.


Clarins Joli Rouge Sheer Lipstick (New Colours)
in 15 Pink Magnolia and 16 Pink Coral

These buttery colours are the perfect partner for the sweet pastel hue of the Instant Light Blush. With a high sheen finish and in-built shine activator pigments,  the Joli Rouge Sheer lipstick makes for a super smooth mango butter infused pout.

Pink Magnolia 15 is a wonderful mid brown pink with purple and silver microshimmer, while Pink Coral 16 is a barely-there coral hue with golden microshimmer. Both lipsticks were photographed after the swatches were made to give a feel for the amount of shimmer that is shot through.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick (New Colours)
in 735 Baby Pink and 734 Poppy Red

For a pop of moisturising and highly pigmented colour, look no further than the classic Joli Rouge lipstick. These two new shades are reminiscent of those you would find in a flower garden, with a finish that is vibrant and long-lasting. Baby Pink 735 is a frosty blue-toned pink that is shot through with masses of silver shimmer, while Poppy Red 734 is a satiny classic red with a touch of brightness.

Clarins Gloss Prodige Intense Colour & Shine Lip Gloss (New Product)
in 01 Chocolate, 02 Nude, 03 Rose, 04 Candy, 05 Grenadine, 06 Raspberry, 07 Blackberry and 08 Papaya

Clarins Gloss Prodige is the crème de la crème of lip gloss – with its gel-like formulation, high pigmentation, and ultra glossiness, you’re getting all of the colour and shine that you love without any of the compromise. Added lip plumpers make for an enviable pout, while the delicious blackberry and liquorice scent and flavour will keep you reapplying all day long.

Chocolate 01 is a red brown with purple shimmer,  Nude 02 is neutral beige shade with silver shimmer, Rose 03 is a pale pink-toned nude with silver shimmer, Candy 04 is a rosy pink with golden shimmer, Grenadine 05 is a hot pink red with golden shimmer, Raspberry 06 is a magenta pink with golden shimmer, Blackberry 07 is plummy purple with golden shimmer, and Papaya 08 is a peachy coral with golden shimmer.
