If, like me, spring is your favourite season, the arrival of the Clarins Spring Makeup collection will be music to your ears. Always one of the first spring makeup collections to land on the Escentual beauty desk, Clarins never disappoint when it comes to seasonal collections.
For spring 2017, Clarins presents Contouring Perfection, a range that celebrates, yes you guessed it: contouring! With their very first contour palette and brand new shades in the 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette and Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipsticks, it’s a great way to experiment with structure.
Destined to accentuate, define and sculpt, I have a feeling you’re going to love this line-up…
Face Contouring Palette & Brush
If you’re eagle-eyed, you may have already spotted that I’m a big fan of contouring (scroll up to my bio if you’re none the wiser!). Ever since I discovered the transformative effects of matte bronzer I have not looked back. It’s amazing what playing with a little shadow and light can do! So, you can imagine my delight when I discovered that Clarins were introducing their first ever contouring palette – Face Contouring Palette and Brush.
Some of you may be wondering, why the excitement? Aren’t there enough contour products in the world? Maybe yes, but none like this one! The Palette Contour Visage has three shades to suit all: a matte highlight to brighten, a warming matte bronzer to sculpt, and a rosy blush with a subtle shimmer to give the complexion a healthy glow. But that’s not it. The palette contains nourishing plant extracts and Clarins’ anti-pollution complex, which work together to keep skin protected and healthy with each application.
Housed in a luxurious gold, slim-line palette (any makeup lovers’ dream), it comes with a travel-friendly contour brush that hugs the contours of the face for easy application and professional results.
4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette
in 05 Smoky
For Spring 2017, Clarins continue their contouring theme with a new colourway in the 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette. 05 Smoky may not be what you’d initially expect from a spring makeup collection, but trust me, it works!
The 4-piece eyeshadow palette is all about adding depth and enhancing your eyes with a mixture of light and shade. With a pearlescent silver-white, shimmering blue-silver, charcoal grey and iridescent black, 05 Smoky is the perfect eyeshadow assortment for someone that loves a smoky eye.
The richly pigmented shadows are like butter on the skin, blending with ease to create a veil of beautiful colour. Whether you opt for a subtle silver sheen over the lid or go all-out with a multi-dimensional smoky eye, this palette will ensure your eyes look the part this spring.
Joli Rouge Brilliant
in 31 Tender Nude, 32 Pink Cranberry & 33 Soft Plum
Clarins’ Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick is one of my all-time favourite lipstick formulas. Not only does each lipstick glide effortlessly over the lips, but they deeply nourish (a necessity for someone with dry lips like me), and they smell divine!
This season, Clarins have introduced three new shades to the Joli Rouge Brilliant line up: 31 Tender Nude a warm-toned peachy nude, 32 Pink Cranberry a vivid fuchsia red, and 33 Soft Plum a rich pink-berry shade.
