Clarins SS13 Makeup Collection

It's that time of year again when we're offered the delights of new collections. As always, Clarins have released a beautiful range of products to tempt you this spring. Inspired by the multi-coloured tones and satin feel of the beautiful Iris flower, the Clarins Spring Makeup Collection features a quartet of shimmering mineral eye shades, a signature gold face compact, the new Rouge Eclat lipsticks and a few limited edition shades.

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect face powder and I think I may just have found it with Clarins Mineral Loose Powder. Ultra-fine and lightweight, it has a velvety soft texture and leaves skin illuminated and radiant. I'm not a fan of overly matte skin so this is perfect for setting makeup and dusting away shine without taking away any luminosity. 

The Palette Eclat Face and Blush Powder is a beautiful trio of fresh pink and peach tones, ideal for all skin tones. The silky smooth compact boosts complexion and gives a beautiful tone, perfect for creating a pretty spring look. The limited edition Eye Quartet Mineral Palette consists of four iridescent eye shades, which can be used wet or dry.  Each shade is super silky and easy to blend, so creating a soft smokey eye is a breeze. 

Gloss Prodigue is the first Clarins lipgloss I've tried and I'm very impressed - it's a non sticky, pigmented gloss which makes lips look fuller thanks to the exclusive Clarins Maxi Lip peptide with hyaluronic acid. I love the vibrant pink shade, which can be worn alone or layered onto a lipstick. 

I'm already a huge fan of Clarins Joli Rouge lipsticks. They offer a deeply moisturising, creamy soft texture along with long lasting colour. The pop of colour they give is subtle and sheer, a beautiful hybrid of lipstick and lipbalm with a glossy finish. Watermelon is such a lovely shade for spring, just the right amount of colour to brighten up a makeup look.

The new Rouge Eclat lipsticks are a dream. They give an opaque sheen of colour, yet feel light to wear and keep lips nourished with Vitamin E and 100% plant waxes. I'll be featuring each of the four lovely shades I received soon so you can see how they look on the lips. Coral Pink and Passion Red are particularly lovely. I also adore the luxe packaging. What woman wouldn't love pulling one of these out of her makeup bag? 

Clarins SS13 Makeup Collection is available to buy from Boots, Debenhams and feelunique.com
