Dip your toes into glittering turquoise blue ocean and reveal enchanting treasures that lie beneath the waves with the new Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Collection. It contains luxurious bronzes and gold shades that help to add a little extra sparkle for a glowing complexion this season. It also features stunning turquoise shades, for a beautiful, yet subtle pop of colour. Although it’s a small collection, only 8 limited edition products in total, it contains everything you need to create a summery, beachy, mermaid look this summer. It features a limited edition Summer Bronzing Compact, Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 2 shades, Truly Waterproof Mascara, Waterproof Eye Pencil and 3 Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadows.
Clarins Limited Edition Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base helps to smooth, correct and illuminate the complexion with a slightly transparent finish that enhances the face and restores vitality and radiance. It’s formulated with Katafray Bark extract that helps with skin’s natural hydration, white tea to protect against harmful environmental aggressors and plant-based amino acids to help minimize redness and imperfections and provides a soothing and calming effect. It comes in a pump style tube with a lightweight, incredibly smooth and creamy texture that leaves behind a veil of light and colour correcting pigments for a demi-matte, extremely natural luminous finish. It has almost a liquidy consistency that applies easily and blends into the skin beautifully for a sheer wash of colour. It helps to eliminate imperfections and gives skin a flawless finish.
Clarins Limited Edition Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Golden Bronze may look a little dark in the tube, but once applied and blended out, it actually works well with my pale skin tone. It provides a gorgeous, matte bronze, totally shimmer-free, radiant glow to my skin with only the smallest amount. Although it can be applied before my foundation as a base, I’ve been mixing a small amount in with my favourite foundation. It helps to make it a tad darker, which saves me from re-purchasing another foundation in a shade darker for summer. On days when I don’t want a full face, I mix in a small amount with my moisturizer to create a custom tinted moisturizer that’s fresh and dewy. This is such a versatile product and perfect for summer. It also comes in shade 04 Apricot and retails for $37 each for 30ml.
Clarins Limited Edition Truly Waterproof Mascara 03 Aquatic Green is perfect for those that want to try the coloured mascara trend, but don’t want to go too wild or too bold. Its unique and innovated oblong brush perfectly hugs the natural curve of your lashes to ensure optimal distribution of mascara over every lash. The hollow, ultra-supple fibers help grip the lash from root to tip to not only thicken, but add both length and volume to the lashes. It easily coats each lash with intense colour that stays put the entire day without flaking, smudging or budging. Depending on the way the light catches your lashes, it may look teal, and in other cases, a deep forest green. You could always apply a coat or two of your favourite black mascara underneath to intensify the teal and really make the colour pop. It retails for $27.
Clarins Limited Edition Waterproof Eye Pencil 05 Aquatic Green is a fun and bright blue with a slight blueish shimmer. This multi-faceted eye pencil can be applied like a traditional eye pencil on both the inside lower lash line, around the entire eye contour or even the waterline, but thanks to it double sided sponge tip, it makes blending and smudging out a dream. It has an incredibly soft and smooth texture that glides across the lid with ease, never pulling or tugging on the lash line. It’s still firm enough to provide precise and solid lines and is extremely pigmented in a single swipe. It provides excellent colour payoff and its waterproof formula stays put the entire day. It retails for $26.
Clarins Limited Edition Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Shadow 01 Aquatic Rose is an absolutely stunning peachy rose gold that looks beautiful paired with the bronzes and teals found in the rest of the collection. Its unique cream-powder formula provides a completely matte finish, yet has an incredibly soft and smooth texture. It contains a blend of soft-focus pigments for pure colour with the added bonus of bamboo powder for longevity. It’s the best of both worlds. It applies evenly and smoothly, its lightweight texture is comfortable to wear throughout the day and it provides true opaque in a single swipe. It blends beautifully into the skin and stays put without creasing, fading or smudging for a solid 12+ hours. It also comes in 2 other shades and retails for $24 each.
