The Clarins summer collection is a firm favorites each year, they bring fun visuals and great products to play with. Their bronzers in particular are just beautiful, huge compacts that mix different shades for that perfect summer glow – i still have the one i’ve used for my wedding day three years ago (see it here).
I’ve heard about their famous Lip Comfort Oils (€21) before, just dint have the chance to try them until now. Available in three shades and flavors – honey, raspberry and red berry, the lip oils nourish the lips, add shine and comfort. They are the modern gloss substitute, without the stickiness. I tried them all and swatched them, honestly they all look the same on the lips. Sheer and glossy, the only difference between them is the scent. I also have to give a shout out the applicator, such a comfortable, soft wand that adds product in one swipe. A tip i got from Mags – apply lip liner all over the lip and seal it over with the lip oil, creating your very own colored lip gloss.
Another new release are the three Skin Boosters: Repair, Energy and Detox (€39 each). A skincare innovation, with just 3-5 drops mixed in your usual moisturiser you can give your skin a customized beauty boost. The Repair Booster is perfect for sensitive skin, when you get a sunburn or when your skin is going trough a delicate stage. The Energy Booster is great to improve radiance and erase signs of fatigue, whilst the Detox Booster plumps, clears and acts like a decongestant for the skin. I have been mixing my Repair Booster with the Bioderma Hydrabio moisturiser and it works a treat for my sensitive, dehydrated face.
Lastly, the Clarins Fix Makeup Spray (€28) got a packaging makeover. It used to be in a long, rather heavy glass bottle and now you can find your Fix in a lightweight, stylish bottle that is in line with the all the Clarins fragrances. With a delicious rose scent, the Fix Makeup Spray will set your makeup, instantly refresh and give the skin that dewy look. If you over powder or your skin is dry, this is your product.
