I love seeing what new launches beauty brands have in the pipeline at the start of each year as I always find something that becomes a firm favourite. Last year, for instance, I fell in love with the Clarins Instant Light Perfector Lipglosses as they are so hydrating and nourishing for your lips, but also look and taste gorgeous. When I saw what Clarins have got in store this year I actually produced a little squeal of delight! Their spring makeup collection has just launched this very month and here are a few of the items that are included in it...
Clarins Radiance Boost Complexion Base
This Instant Light Radiance Complexion Boosting Base helps to eliminate imperfections and create a brighter, more flawless coverage. It can be worn on it's own for a natural boost or underneath foundation. I personally think this will be great for the summer, when you want to add a healthy glow to your face and want it to look natural.
Multi Blush Cream Blush
This blusher is such a beautiful and warm shade. It's a cream formula that easily blends into the skin to create a natural and light finish, but with a pop of pink. The blusher contains floral waxes such as rose, mimosa, jojoba and sunflower which protects the skin against dehydration.
Eye Quartet Mineral Palette
This eyeshadow palette is simply divine. It looks and feels so luxurious, and the shades are beautiful. My personal favourite is the white highlighter shade, which is pearly and will really brighten up the inner corners of the eyes. The purple and grey shades will add great definition and can be built up for an evening look. It really is beautiful, I'd definitely recommend getting your hands on it!
I am definitely a lipgloss girl at heart. I love experimenting with lipsticks, and I am getting more confident wearing them, but I wear lipgloss everyday, on its own or over lipstick. This gloss is one of my favourites. It's not sticky and makes the lips look fuller due to the 'Suprashine Colour Complex'. In addition to this, the gloss contains raspberry oil which nourishes the lips, while the subtle light pink shade looks very pretty.
Joli Rouge Brilliant Sheer Shine Lipstick
Last but certainly not least, these lipsticks are absolutely gorgeous! The shades I have here are 19 Tropical Pink and 20 Coral Tulip, both of which make a statement. They are deeply moisturising, which is something that is important to me when looking for a lipstick as I hate that cracked/ cakey look. They are very soft, easy to apply and have a glossy finish.
Individual, full reviews of some of these products will be coming up on the blog soon, in the mean time...
