Clarins have welcomed in the autumn months with a corker of a collection and it’s got cosy, happy vibes written all over it. Let’s take a look…
I love it when the autumn and winter collections start arriving. As someone who loves autumn the most (sorry summer, I do love you too) and switches up their make up regime with each season, it’s a great time of year to try some newness. I’m all about changing my style with autumn – I’m not just talking about those cosy jumpers and ankle boots reappearing, but the beauty trends too. We can welcome back darker lips, muted cheeks and more contrast if we want to. Everything about autumnal make up appeals to me: plum lips, pink rosy cheeks and a smokey eye. I’m all about that style during these months.
As a skincare lover, I say it again, I adore the Clarins products. Having tried so much of their skincare over the years, they’ll forever be a staple brand on my bathroom shelf. They were the first premium brand my mum introduced me to in my teens and they’ve earned their place on my favourites list a million times over. But their make up is also just as lovely, and compliments their other products so well. I often feel like more people should try their make up because then they’d realise how much it has to offer – so I’m standing here waving my flag for it right now! Let me tell you – the new autumn collection is a BEAUTY and the perfect place to start trying their colour cosmetics.
Containing 8 swoon-worthy new blushes and four luscious lip products, these easy to use on-the-go products will complete your autumn make up looks with the effortless application that I’ve come to love from Clarins.
Introducing the Joli Blush which is the most creamy and soft blush I think I’ve *ever* tried (and I’ve tried a lot.) It’s been infused with plant oils including hazelnut oil so it nourishes while it colours – winner. No more using those dry blushes that make skin look flat, these will offer a softness that goes beyond make up and falls into skincare. You can tell the second you touch the texture just how creamy it is, and those lovely oils give it the most beautiful, almost highlighting, appearance on the cheeks. I found that because of the oil infusion making the texture so powerful that the pigmentation was so high on this. It’s the winning combination of creamy texture and high colour so you get a really noticeable tint on the skin with each application.
Within the 8 shade range there’s a nice colour variation that offers those natural ‘English rose’ pinks for the pale skin tones and something a lot darker too. Each compact also has a brush for easy application so it’s great for putting in your handbag and taking out during the day with you. These blushes offer great colour payoff, they nourish the skin so they’re looking after you too and they’re perfect autumnal cheek goodies, what more could you want?
As well as 8 beautiful cheek shades, there’s now four Intense Natural Lip Perfectors which come in neutral shades with a hint of nude/warm autumn tones. I’m talking brown tones and pinks galore – which is exactly my kinda lip colour! I love the range of Natural Lip Perfectors anyway but these new shades are perfect for the season and they’ve got a cute packaging design to boot. And what’s more is that the formula of these ones is intense, so the colour is even more powerful. If you’ve never tried these they’re basically a gloss-like product with a lovely, natural colour that’s not sticky in texture and infused with shea butter so they’re really soft and non-drying. These are great handbag lip products because one swipe perks the lips up in colour but also relieves them from feeling dry etc – which is great when it’s chilly outside.
While autumn marks the end of those hot summer days, it welcomes the golden light, chilly days which means you want to have a warm look in your make up. The autumn shades in this collection lend themselves to that wonderfully so you’ll be able to rock an autumn lip and cheek, alongside those favourite chunky knit sweaters this season. You can count on Clarins to create make up with skincare properties so you’re safe in the knowledge you’re getting the absolute best of both.
