Summer With Clarins
Have I told you how much I love this brand at the moment? Whether it's a gorgeous eye palette or their new summer lip crayons, everything they release I instantly swoon and these picks are no exception.
First up, let me state that the Truly Waterproof Mascara* is THE BEST mascara I've ever used, as well as cementing itself to my lids without all the hard clumpy lashes and being super waterproof - trust me, I've done the crying to prove it - this stuff gives so much length to my lashes without the need for extra applications of mascara or false eyelashes for nights out. I've been favouring this during the daytime instead of my Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara and in comparison, it's just so much better. With this, I don't get the panda eye effect during the daytime where my mascara smudges around my eye area, it stays put all day. As well as being super waterproof, it means it's super hard to remove, even my Bioderma or Clinique Cleansing Balm couldn't shift this stuff, I struggled and struggled with it so after a quick chat to very friendly Clarins staff, she gave me a sample of the Instant Eye Make Up Remover, I'm yet to try it out but I currently have lashings of this mascara on so tonight I'll find out!
Then it's onto my favourite to-be summer lip product. I've told you all how much I hate lip gloss and I'm far too lazy to keep reapplying lipstick every couple of hours so when I tried the Lip Balm Crayons*, I was sold immediately. I received 02 Creamy Pink, 04 Sweet Cherry and 06 Soft Coffee. My favourite out of the bunch has to be Soft Coffee, in the bullet it looks a very dark brown but applied on the lips it gives a sheer wash of colour giving an almost 90's Jennifer Aniston lip. The formula of these are moisturising, sheer with not much colour pay off, they add a slight tint to the lips especially the darker shades but for shades such as Creamy Pink, it's more of a "my lips but better" finish. Sweet Cherry gives a subtle 'just bitten' effect on the lips which is a finish I prefer, not being much of dark lip wearer I can see these being a lippy best friend for girls like me. The packaging is sleek, small and handbag friendly meaning you can quickly swipe these on the bus/tube and be good to go. Every lazy girls dream!
Another glowing review because lets just face it, Clarins are really bringing it at the moment. Keep your eyes peeled for some reviews from their skincare range in the next week or so!
