I’ve been spending the first few days of autumn enjoying the crisp cool weather, blue skies and rich, tantalizing color palettes. I have even started embracing sexy new trends as I slowly fizzle out of sunny summer hues. Clarins has released a beautiful collection of seasonal makeup to help you strut your stuff in style and some of the items are so coveted that they have sold out at many Clarin’s counters!
The Pretty Night Look Eye Shadow Palette contains five deep seductive shades that enhance all eyes to perfection! These colors are expertly matched to create a range of fabulous looks including mesmerizing smokey eyes for a fun night out. When you want to tone down the warm fall hues you can go lighter on the lids with the beautiful gold and subtly blend the bronze, smokey purple or black-brown in the crease. Whatever your mood the saturation is buildable and the colors are versatile enough for many pretty creations. The texture varies by shade but the shadows are non-creasing and long lasting without much fall-out.
I love that you can also use the deep pigments on the bottom lash line to sculpt and define the eyes and if you fade the outline the effect is sultry and alluring! The beige is a fabulous blending color and I use it to dim and transition shadow from the crease towards the brows. The pretty finishes range from matte to satin and glimmering shimmer which combine to create an interesting array of textures. The quality of the pigments is good but they look even better with primer and although the palette is small and less bulky the actual shadows are quite large and great for travel! If you hurry you can still get this beauty online at clarins.ca and thebay.ca for $39.00.
Nothing accentuates and beautifully shapes your pout like a stunning red lipstick and 742 Joli Rouge looks lovely on all complexions. This lush, smooth formula glides on in one easy swipe to deliver vivid, show-stopping color that is ravishing for day wear, evening and glam events.The formula has a light, pleasant scent, intense color and a great satin finish with just a hint of luminous shine. This full-coverage, vibrant red is enriched with mango butter and organic extract to keep lips moisturized and soft for up to 6 hours and the collection includes 25 trendsetting hues. The lipstick retails for $27.00.
If you decide to go with something more subtle the fall range also includes a great selection of neutral lip liners from nude fair, medium nude, nude rose and nude chocolate to match your favorite flesh tone lipstick or blend with any hue in your collection. The creamy texture glides on without any drag making it easy to define and contour your pout and the formula is infused with vitamin E. The liners retail for $26.00.
If you need a boost of moisture during the cooler months the limited edition Lovely Lip Balm is super cute and shaped like lipstick! The formula is enriched with a hydrating cocktail of plant extracts and cocoa butter to repair and nourish dry, chapped lips for a supple, glistening finish. The addition of organic red currant extract helps plump for a fuller appearance and the creamy irresistible texture melts into skin and cloaks lips in a light veil of moisture. Although the balm is clear it reacts to the pH of your lips to boost natural color and enhance radiance plus the sweet, fruity flavor and chic eco packaging is an added bonus! The balm retails for $15.00.
I have been using the serums from Clarins almost every night and they work well layered under my moisturizers or facial oils. The Supra Remodelling Serum works wonders for aging skin by lifting to visibly reduce wrinkles, redefine facial contour, reduce the look of double chin, replenish to decrease skin slackening and correct age spots. I don’t have wrinkles, fine lines or any visible signs of skin aging yet but preventative care is imperative and the serum also helps moisturize and correct color for a bright, vibrant complexion that looks fresh and revived. It retails for $135.00.
