THE NEW THING | CLARINS AQUATIC TREASURES COLLECTION






 
 
 
Firstly, HOW BEAUTIFUL IS THIS COLLECTION? Clarins has nailed it. I love the simplicity of this collection, its not been overcomplicated or over styled, it is fresh and clean looking with hints of intricacy and style.
 
Firstly looking at the base of the face. Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base is my new favourite product to use before I apply my foundations. This complexion base contains Katafray plant extract which is used to hydrate the skin. This is an active ingredient for sensitive skin which aids to soothe and reduce minor redness in the skin. This product also contains anti-pollution ingredients to prevent the skin. This product is amazing and correcting and illuminating the skin. This complexion base has '3D radiance pigments' combined with 'high lumitech' complex which illuminates the complexion and optically corrects imperfections of the skin. In this collection there are two shades available, 04 apricot which is for fair skin tones and 05 golden caramel is suitable for medium to dark skin tones. There are also shades available all year round in the shades 01 rose, 02 champagne and 03 peach.
 
For eyes, Clarins have released the new editions to the Ombre Iridescente cream to powder, long lasting eyeshadows. I was sent the shades, 01 aquatic rose and 03 aquatic grey. I love both these shades because they are great for during the day but also perfect for a more smoky night time look. Aquatic rose looks beautiful all over the lips with a wash of Buck from Urban Decay through the crease. Aquatic grey is stunning all over the lids and then smoked out with a deep, matte black shade in the crease and outer V for a dramatic night time look in the summer. I also love the packaging, they are so lightweight yet look so expensive in design. I love the rose gold lid on the pink shade. I love how simple the packaging is yet it is so unique with the little indent with a marking of a 'C', I think this adds a lovely final touch to the product. I think both of these shades are great and I will be purchasing some of Clarins other shades soon because I think they are so great for a quick but effective eye makeup. I love when I barely spend anytime on my eyeshadow and I get compliments about my eye makeup, I think it shows that a simple product can really change the length of time, application and also the look of your makeup. I love these Ombre Iridescente cream to powder eyeshadows, they are a must have for summer.
 
Lastly, I received the Clarins Limited Edition Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact.  Firstly, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. I love how expensive the packaging feels and looks. The bronzer powder itself has the most amazing and intricate design and I legitimately did not want to touch the powder because it was too beautiful to spoil haha!! Regardless, I have used this bronzer for the past week and I love the reddy brown undertone this bronzer has, I feel that red toned bronzers make the skin appear more natural and not as cakey.  
 
 Let me know what products you have been loving recently from new collections from makeup brands? Have a lovely evening:) If you have any specific requests for blog posts then please let me know!!

  2. I've been eyeing up a few of these products for past couple of weeks! I really want the instant radiance base, I've swatched it on the shops and it's so glowy. I'm in need of a new bronzer too and I've been leaning towards this one!
