CLARINS // SPRING 2015 GARDEN ESCAPE

There are so many pretty things in Clarins’ Spring collection, Garden Escape, it’s hard to just pick out a few!

If you’re a fan of Fresh’s Sugar Lip Balms, then you will love the new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors. There are 6 new shades in this collection, and they are all perfect for spring and summer. Light washes of colour with the hydration and ease of a balm–the best of both worlds. Great for those who want a lip colour without being daunted by a lipstick. The aptly named Red, is indeed, a bright and cheery red and that looks juicy with a semi-gloss finish. It also smells really good.

I was really excited to try out the new Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil because I had already hard so many great things about it (it sold out in the UK very quickly), not to mention the gorgeous pink colour (I’m a sucker for bright pinks). However, do not be mistaken–this does not apply as a bright pink–it reads as a whisper of pink once on the lips with an uber-glossy finish. There are two shades: Raspberry (pictured) and Honey. Super hydrating and non-sticky, but also quite thick, which allows the oil to stay put–great for really dry lips (perhaps a winter recovery item?).

Finally (!), I was able to get my hands on one of these blushes. Ive been eyeing the beautiful dusty rose shades that Clarins has been releasing with each collection, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed whatsoever. Sweet Rose is a beautiful peachy pink that is very low on shimmer (yes!) and though it might not look it in the pan, really reminds me of Nars’ Orgasm blush, just without the sparkle. The face is instantly fresh and woken up with this.
