For the past three years, Clarins has blown me away with their limited edition seasonal makeup collection. I’ve been waiting with baited breath to see what’s on offer this year and trust me when I say the 2018 Sunskissed Make-Up Collection does not disappoint!
Pink Flamingos, palm trees and bright colours come together to create a steamy hot beachy vibe.
Get ready to glow with gorgeousness and ensure you slip these summer beauty essentials into your tote, along with your sarong and sun creams.
Sunshine in a Compact (R560) Limited Edition – BUY
In my opinion, the limited-edition Bronzing Compacts Clarins put out with their summer collections are among the very best bronzers I’ve ever used. I love the maxi size of the palette, and the colour payoff is great – without applying patchy or being too dark. I also like that the powder is matte, so it imparts a very natural looking sun-kissed glow. This one contains a harmony of 3 matte shades adapted to suit all skin tones.
To use, simply sweep a large brush lightly all over the face for a natural healthy glow effect, then on areas the sun naturally hits first (cheeks, nose, chin, etc.) to customize your tanned look.
4-Colour All-in-One Pen (R515) Limited Edition – BUY
I just adore this nifty pen that can be used on both eyes and lips. This innovative makeup pen allows you to choose from an intense black liner for creating a deep, graphic look, an emerald green to highlight all eye colours and an intense plum to warm the eyes. There’s also a bright pink to line and define lips. All four shades are enriched with Black Acacia and Sunflower Wax Complex to comfort eyelids and lips and the formula applies so easily without any tugging or pulling. I also like that the colours are all matte and pretty long wearing. This is fabulous product to pop into your bag for makeup touch-ups on the go.
SOS Primer (R425) Limited Edition – BUY
Earlier this year Clarins launched their new SOS primers. I’ve been very impressed with them and the one that boosts radiance has found a permanent place in my makeup bag.
This summer, two new shades have been added to the collection to warm all skin tones. The formula also has a “blur” effect texture that instantly illuminates and corrects the complexion. I use this primer one of two ways:
- Mixed with a little moisturiser to give my skin a natural looking glow
- Over moisturiser before foundation to prep the skin for make-up and give it prolonged hold.
Lip Comfort Oil in Delectable Plum (R335) – BUY
I LOVE the Lip Comfort Oils from Clarins that nourish the lips leaving them with a wonderful glossy finish. The Lip Comfort Oils are formulated with hazelnut, organic jojoba and acai oils. They are easy to apply, don’t migrate off the lips and are fantastic for everyday wear. This one coats the lips in a beautiful veil of sheer plum colour while protecting & hydrating them. It also has a delicious blackcurrant flavor. Really, what’s NOT to love?
