Clarins has just released their new Frozen Summer Collection and I have all the juicy details for you. I’m currently on vacation in Tulum and these products have been my go-to’s during my say here. The Clarins Summer Collection is the one makeup launch I’m most excited about every year. From the packaging to the innovative products, there is nothing not to love about this collection. Read on to find out more information about each product. Let me know your favourite in the comments below.
The highlight in this collection is the Bronzing Compact. Firstly, I absolutely love the packaging. The bright colours instantly put me in an amazing mood and I really like the size of it too. This gradient bronzing powder in 3 matte shades creates a beautiful healthy glow. Whether used individually or combined together, these powders leave a very natural looking finish on my skin. The formula is enriched with a plant micro-patch that binds water to the surface of the skin, protecting it from dehydration and Clarins anti-pollution complex which shields from the harmful effects of pollution. Hello hydrated and sun-kissed skin!
Prime & Fix
You know how much I love the SOS Primers from Clarins. This collection includes the SOS Primer ICY for a refreshing experience on hot summer days. This limited-edition shade contains mint essential oil extract to melt into the skin. This leaves a double feeling of freshness. The primer has an immediate cooling effect and leaves a feeling of toning throughout the day. This is the perfect base for makeup. The green tone minimises the look of redness whilst sea lily extract helps to keep the skin hydrated.
The collection also includes a new fixing spray in a beautifully summery design. In just one simple step, this hydrating and light Fix’ Make-Up envelops your skin in an irresistible feeling of freshness, whilst simultaneously setting your make-up and maximising its hold. The formula is enriched with organic aloe vera extract with moisturising and soothing properties. The delicious scent of vanilla and pear is addictive!
Next up, we have the new Water Lip Stains in the shades 08 candy water and 09 deep red water. I absolutely love the unique water like texture. These glide over the lips so smoothly and give a long wearing, non-transferable colour. They also provide intense hydration and nourishment to the lips. I really like both new shades and I can’t really decide which one is my favourite. Which colour do you prefer?
Also included in this collection is the Ombre 4 Couleurs. This eye palette is so gorgeous and all you need to create the perfect bronzy summer look. Its customisable bronzing shades allows you to create intense or natural looks and play with the different finishes: velvet, satin, metallic or an ultra-shiny glossy effect.
