Rarely do I ever get won over by a makeup collection and if I do, it's generally solely by the packaging. But the Clarins Sunkissed Summer Makeup Collection is so much more than that. Not only is the packaging beautiful, but what's inside is what really counts here and it's been getting me through the summer like nothing else.
I'm not usually one for bronzer, however this summer something's changed in me and I'm all about getting that bronze glow. In fact, the same used to be said about a coloured blush - although now I can't get enough of a subtle pink flush to the cheeks. My go-to beauty product this summer for both of this is the Clarins Limited Edition Bronzing & Blush Compact*, £30. It's the most beautiful compact I've seen in a while but the inside is what gets me going back again and again. The compact features 3 bronzer shades and one peachy apricot blush. It's glowy, it's bronzy, and it leaves you looking as though you've just stepped off the beach - and that's a winner in my books. It's pigmented and easy to blend and honestly? I can't say a bad word about it. With all of the shades in one, it's been my go-to palette for travelling and popping in my bag to top up that beachy glow, on-the-go.
During the summer, not only do I want a beachy tanned glow, but I want my makeup to last! The Clarins Limited Edition Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour*, £18 and the Clarins Double Fix Mascara*, £20 are perfect for this. The cream colour eyeshadows are the perfect all over the lid metallic eyeshadow base, they can be used on their own, blended together or used as part of your eyeshadow look. I took these on holiday with me, to Glastonbury too and honestly they were a god send as they really did last. The same could be said about the Double Fix Mascara. I fall in love with certain mascaras and I hate it when the waterproof formula just isn't quite the same and this product gets around that. It's a mascara topper and it makes what you've already applied last that bit longer too.
These are perfect for packing for your holiday, or even perfect for packing for any festival you've got coming up as they really do what they are supposed to. A luxury favourite that's really worth spending a few extra pennies on. Highly recommend!
