My New Obsession: Clarins Makeup

January is all about New Year, New You but this year I’m 30. And since I’m Asian and I take my skincare very seriously, I’m always told I look like I’m 20 years old. (Yes I still get carded, but I guess at my age it’s a compliment).

I love testing out different brands, but really only try scientifically proven skincare and makeup brands. I knew I had to play around with Clarins. I mean the company was founded in 1954 by a medical student and their luxury products are based exclusively on plants.  Thanks to Clarins I was able to test out some of their new products for January. Check out my thoughts below:

Displaying NEW Clarins SOS Primer - 05 Lavender.jpgClarins SOS Primer in 05 Lavender ($39)  instantly neutralizes sallowness for visibly brighter skin. You can use alone after your daily skincare routine or blend with your foundation for a perfect, even complexion! They also have:

Rose which minimizes signs of fatigue (perfect to wear to brunch on the weekends)

Peach blurs imperfections

Coral visibly minimizes dark spots

Green diminishes redness

Lavender visibly brightens sallow skin

What I love about it: 

It’s key ingredients Sea Lily provides 24 hr hydration & mother of pearl pigment corrects the look of imperfections. AKA: it works hard to make you look flawless.

How to use: 

Apply before foundation or you can mix with your foundation. I use it under my foundation.

I’m all about a good eye shadow palette. What I love the most is how compact the Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette in 07 Lovely Rose ($44)  is. It’s perfect to keep in your bag and comes in a new range of shades, from bright pink to aubergine, which makes it easy to make your eyes pop from day to night. I like how the palette delivers a combination of four satin, matte and iridescent eyeshadows. You can glide on dry for a soft natural eye or apply wet for an intense smoky effect.

What I love about it: 

The shadows are super pigmented and blendable. They shades are unique and I truly love this palette. You can use it for day and night looks. Check out my swatches below

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 08 Plum  ($26) adds a vibrant shade of purple to your lips while leaving them supple and nourished. This seriously is my new go to for the winter. It’s super super hydrating. It’s not sticky at all and has the perfect amount of pigment. It also has Wild Mango extract to immediately softens lips & Shea extract to nourish and comfort lips

What I love about it: 

Seriously love how soft and plump my lips look after using this. I love the shade, and think it would work well all skin types. I’m definitely going to try other shades!

Final Thoughts: I definitely will be checking out other Clarins products. Any products you think I should check out or review. Comment below!
