Clarins Instant Glow Spring 2016 Makeup Review

It is still quite cold and dreary in Toronto as winter seems to be lingering on but spring is on the horizon with the debut of trendy makeup! Nothing perks me up more than pretty new products and the Clarins Instant Glow Collection is all about luminous fresh hues that evoke confidence and everyday elegance.

The Limited Edition Natural Glow Eye Palette is simple, chic and totally gorgeous! These warm, earthy hues enriched with plant extracts and minerals are my go-to colors! You can’t go wrong with these illuminating pops of champagne, matte beige, brilliant gold, rich bronze and sultry brown-black. They compliment all complexions from light to dark and whether I’m running errands, out with the girls or having fun at a party these shades go with all outfits! Another great thing about this palette is its seasonal versatility, you can rock these colors any time of the year and still be totally on-trend!

The texture is silky and slightly creamy for smooth buildable coverage. You can go from subtle shimmer to intense eye catching creations by simply layering. The shades that don’t have a metallic sheen are the beige and deep brown-black which are perfect for highlighting under the brows and contouring the crease. These shadows are very wearable and the small palm-sized palette is ideal for travel, it retails for $39.00.

I am obsessed with this next shadow fittingly named Silver Plum because the sparkling color emits a radiant glow that is hard to resist! The Ombre Iridescente single shadows enriched with finely ground bamboo powder and vitamin E are available in a range of flattering neutral tones. The texture is a luxurious combination of powder and cream for ultra smooth application and a soft, seductive finish.

The color pay-off is wonderful so primer is not required and if you don’t have a brush on-hand, simply swipe on the pigment with your finger. The shadow can be enhanced effortlessly for bold saturation and seamless, crease-free color that looks stunning! Although this shade is quite rich for spring you can use it to create the perfect smokey eye which is always in style! It retails for $25.00.

The Rouge Eclat Lipstick Collection incorporates petal perfect pinks with the shade 23 Hot Rose and 24 Pink Cherry. Like all the Clarins lipsticks I own, the packaging is sophisticated, the scent is delicious and the formula is nourishing.

Infused with a conditioning blend of plant waxes, mimosa, jojoba, sunflower and cocoa the color glides on buttery smooth and drenches lips in layers of luminous shine.

The light hydrating texture is perfect for dry lips and since it isn’t full-coverage you get a pretty wash of soft color without the full intensity of a solid lipstick. The velvety pigments can go from sheer to medium coverage with a few swipes and they make lips look full and dazzling. The Rouge Eclat Lipsticks retail for $28.00 each.

A cheerful flush of spring blush can really brighten up a dull complexion and add a dose of healthy color. The Multi-Blush in the shade 05 Rose is perfect for the season with fresh pink undertones and a creamy texture that transforms into a powder finish once blended. Infused with rose, jojoba and plant waxes that help protect skin, the photochromoatic pigments melt onto the cheeks for a smooth soft focus finish. If you prefer subtle blush this formula has a very delicate sheer effect that appears as natural as the flush you get on a cool autumn day. I like that the compact is very small and portable but you do have to apply it with your fingers as a brush doesn’t really deposit enough color. You can get this spring beauty for $30.00.
