Spring 2013 with Clarins Rouge Eclat

With Christmas behind us, thoughts of Spring start entering our minds. Personally I can't wait for Spring when hopefully the weather will be brighter. Sure to brighten Spring up even more is the gorgeous Spring 2013 makeup collection from Clarins called Rouge Eclat.

Rouge Eclat is inspired by the multi coloured tones and satin feel of the Iris flower. This stunning collection features beautiful lipsticks, a gorgeous eye palette, fabulous face powder and luxurious loose powder.

   Watermelon is the perfect pop of pink for a spring lip. I am completely in love with this shade, it suits my Irish skin perfectly. There is also a plum shade available which looks lovely. Both lipsticks are the equivalent of Lip Butters but slightly more luxurious.Watermelon is quite sheer and is super hydrating so there is no fear of these drying out your lips.

Clarins Eye Quartet Palettes are always stunning, but I am really loving this palette which features shimmery grey, white, black and a gorgeous plum.All embossed with the Irish Flower and all matching perfectly with each other and offers you the choice of several eye makeups.

This 2 in 1 palette contains three shades, all matte. A beige which can be used to finish a makeup or contour and then gorgeous peach and pink for blusher. I tend to swirl all three together to give a gorgeous spring glow. This powder is also embossed with the Iris flower.

I tend to use quite a few loose powders including Catrice Prime and Fine so I was really excited to try this lovely out. I was sent the darkest shade 03 and although it is dark, it still worked quite well with my skin tone. The powder is super fine and blurs any imperfections. €38 is a bit pricey but the jar is huge so would last for ages.

Rouge Eclat is available at Clarins counters now.

  1. I love the powder, too dark for me too but their powders are of the highest quality, beautiful!
