Clarins Instant Glow Spring 2016 Collection

As you may know already, Clarins has launched their Spring 2016 Makeup Collection recently! The Instant Glow collection features an eyeshadow palette, a blush, 4 lipsticks, 2 lip perfectors and 4 cream-to-powders eyeshadows. By the way the only limited edition in this collection is the Natural Glow Eyeshadow Palette, everything else is now part of the permanent collection!

Natural Glow 5-Colour Eyeshadow Palette ($39 CAD for 7.5g, limited edition)
This palette contains 5 neutral shades : a pinky beige with a sparkly finish, a light ivory with a satin finish, a light copper with a frosty finish, a golden olive brown with a shimmery finish and a soft charcoal black with a satin finish.

There isn't one shade I don't like, all of them are super smooth and the color payoff is excellent! The sparkly beige contains glitters but it looks amazing mixed with some MAC Mixing Medium (or Visine eye drops), soooo sparkly!

This palette is limited edition so I would highly suggest purchasing it soon before it disappears!

Multi-Blush Cream Blush in 05 Rose ($30 CAD for 4g)
This pink blush is beautiful, it gives my cheeks an healthy-looking glow!! I love the fact that it's not a super light and cool pink, it's a light-medium pink with a hint of peach undertones. The finish is slightly shimmery, but it doesn't look sparkly or glittery on the skin.

The Multi-Blushes have a lovely cream to powder consistency, they are easy to blend and aren't greasy or sticky! I love them!

By the way, I wouldn't recommend to stock up on cream-to-powder blushes because most of them dry out overtime and you may need to scrape up the top layer if you don't use them frequently.

Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadows ($25 CAD for 7g)
How gorgeous are these eyeshadows? They are incredibly smooth and buttery! They provide intense pigmentation and I love the shimmery finish as well, so pretty!

They don't completely set on the skin like ColourPop's eyeshadows so you can take as much time as you need to blend them out. While they don't need a primer to look their best, I do suggest to use one as they tend to fade after 3-4 hours, especially on oily lids.

If you love shimmery eyeshadows, you're gonna love these!

Rouge Eclat Lipsticks in 23 Hot Rose and 24 Pink Cherry ($28 CAD for 3g)
Formulated with a Nutri-Youth Complex and vitamin E, these lipsticks protects against free radicals and dehydration. The formula is very lightweight and is incredibly comfortable on the lips! The color is buildable, but if you apply a thick layer on your lips (like I did for these photos) they will be prone to feathering.

23 Hot Rose is a warm corally pink with a glossy finish. I love the color, but this one has a tendency to settle into the fine lines after 10-15 minutes.

24 Pink Cherry is a reddened pink with a glossy and slightly pearly finish. This one has a beautiful finish, I do recommend to apply a lip pencil though!
