Valentine’s Day Beauty with Clarins Makeup
Do you know what the Pantone color of the year is for 2018? Pantone‘s “provocative and thoughtful purple shade”, called Ultra-Violet, is THE color of 2018. Fun fact about me, purple is my favorite color!
Clarins Makeup is right on trend as they roll out some new products that will be sure to have you looking beautiful and on-trend this season! I am so ready for Spring guys and the sunny days here in Connecticut are so deceiving. Sunny doesn’t equal warm but I can see those warm days around the corner!
I want to share with you three new Clarins makeup products that I am obsessed with right now!
INSTANT LIGHT LIP BALM PERFECTOR // Part skincare, part makeup, instant Light Lip Balm Perfecter’s formula combines a balm and a gloss in one! Its rich, creamy texture provides 4 hours of hydration and leaves lips with a subtle tint. With ingredients like wild mango extract to soften lips, shea extract to nourish and comfort lips, vitamin E to protect agains free radicals, and a unique combination of mineral pearls and “3D Radiance” pigments to magnify your lips and leave them visibly plumped. I am OBSESSED with this lip balm. I was just talking a few days ago about my go-to’s for dry hands and lips and this is being added to my list! This balm is so creamy and has an amazing texture that is not at all sticky. The color is subtle but makes my lips pop AND it lasts for hours! That is so key for me right now with this cold harsh winter air and how dry it is. I have the shad PLUM. I am definitely getting more colors! There are eight shades in all. $26
SOS PRIMER // I feel like we are all searching for that MAGIC primer. Or is it just me? I don’t wear a primer every single day, because I haven’t found one I can commit to. This new formula is super hydrating and creates a flawless completion while protecting my skin from pollution and free radicals! Sign me up! The three key ingredients are Sea Lily to provide 24-hour hydration, White Tea to provide antioxidant defense, and Mother of Peal Pigments which visibly correct the look of imperfections. My skin can get red in areas, and I don’t want to pack on concealer and foundation to even my skin tone out. This SOS PRIMER does the job! I sometimes apply this alone to even my skin tone and apply a bit of under eye concealer and blush to get out the door quick, OR I mix this right in to my foundation to get a totally flawless look. There are five primer solutions in this SOS line for any beauty concern. I have 05 Lavender to brighten skin. Has a mild floral scent. $39
4-COLOUR EYESHADOW PALETTE in 07 LOVELY ROSE // In a new range of shades, from bright pink to aubergine, so go ahead and make your eyes pop from day to night. These bright pink shades – Dragée Pink, Raspberry Pink, Old Pink and Aubergine – give a delicious retro twist to your eyes for a fresh, impactful look! Don’t be scared off by the colors, you can build them up as much as you like depending on your day or night look. Formulated with 100% mineral and vegetal pigments. You can apply these shades wet or dry but they are smooth and long lasting. These colors are not super shimmery so you can easily go with a natural day-time look. For an evening look you can add the darkest shade in the palette to your top and bottom last line as a liner and make your eyes really pop! The palette is not at all powdery and if you have hazel eyes like me, this palette is made just for you! $44
I am just so excited for these new products. Clarins iconic brand has been providing such amazing products forever and I’m loving adding them into my routine!
