Aquatic Treasures: Sneak Peak of Clarins Summer Line And Giveaway



Today on the blog we are talking Clarins, I love Clarins, utterly, completely and unashamedly. As a teenager my first real job was as a counter girl for Clarins and it launched my love for the brand. For me when my girlfriends get engaged I buy them Clarins Hand and Nail Cream, super luxurious and beautiful, just what you need for showing off that new sparkler. My mum gets her Beauty Flash Balm religiously for every birthday and Christmas, my mother-in-law has started in her Clarins voyage by having me as a daughter, she's very keen on the Eau Dynamistante range, I tend to buy her loads of the gorgeous shower and body lotions. My point...as I had one I'm sure, is that Clarins is a mainstay in the bathrooms of all of my family. I just think the brand are rather fabulous.

So when I got an email asking if I would like to have a look at the new summer line Aquatic Treasures, I had to say yes, so here's what is going to be hitting the counters in May and one reader can win a rather fabulous piece from it.



Summer Bronzing Compact £30

I LOVE this! Every year Clarins bring out a new bronzing compact and this one is the newest. It is pearlised which seems to be the aquatic theme of the collection. The compact is beautiful, and seems to be lit from within with golds like a precious shell or an oyster. The shades inside are able to be built up but there are three distinct shades, from light bronze to a much darker tone for those cheekbones. It's beautiful swirled together and I tend to wear the top lighter shades on a day to day. 
Check this one out on the counters in May!

Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadows £19

The eyeshadows are pearled and shimmery, they also pack a real punch with their pigmentation. When I have worn them, I've taken the light shimmer on my inner corner and then smoke out my lids with the darker. It works really well and you get a really fabulous industrial grey smoked lid. I was actually quite surprised with the staying power, they don't budge and I hadn't worn them with a primer so that was a lovely surprise at the end of the day.




Truly Waterproof Mascara £21

There's no messing around with this mascara, it's waterproof and it is determined not to budge. It also happens to volumise your lashes and your lashes look exceptionally black. I didn't realise that my mascara wasn't as dark until I tried this. Very dark, creamy and non budging on me! Hurrah!


Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base £26

The Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base, packs a lot into one product. It has Clarins anti-pollution base which is going to protect your skin, it also brightens and illuminates, you can either use this as a primer underneath your usual make up or you can use it by itself. It evens everything out, boosts your tone, and makes you look very rested. Clarins have extended the range now to include 04 Apricot and 05 Golden Bronze.

And, not only all of this but I have one to give away ! So you can get your beauty loving paws on it early! Just fill in the Rafflecopter below!


                                                      Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil £17


I have a love/hate relationship with liner pencils, especially ones which you can smudge, they usually end up all over my face, or they take half my eyelid off. This though, praise the beauty gods, it's soft but it's waterproof and it gives you enough time to smudge it out but then it does not move. I actually had a lot of trouble taking it off, but I'm assured by the girls from Clarins that their eye make up remover will have it off in a flash! Yes it stays put and you can get a big ole smoke on with it!


OPEN INTERNATIONALLY 


Good Luck To You All!

Much Love
