When Clarins announcing it’s seasonal collections, I know they are going to be full of pretty, wearable shades – that’s a given. When Clarins announces they are finally expanding my absolute favourite lip product line, the Instant Light Lip Perfectors with two new shades? Well that’s something to get excited about! Today not only do I have the details on the Instant Glow Spring 2016 Collection, but make sure you read to the end for a sweet little giveaway!
Clarins Instant Glow Spring 2016 is all about silver laced neutrals, pinks and cherries this year. I was able to get my hands on some of the collection to show you all, and it is so soft and pretty. There are four Ombre Iridescente Shadows, which are a cream to powder formula that glide on super silky and pearly minus any super metallic or glittery finish. All the shades in the collection for Spring are ‘silver’ themed, and I got the shade ’05 Silver Pink’, which you’ll see in the swatches below is a cool, shell pink that works a treat at brightening up eyes.
Along with these are a five shade eyeshadow palette aptly named ‘Natural Glow’ which has pretty standard neutrals – a sparkling ivory, matte bone, pearly peach, mid toned bronze and cool toned charcoal brown. I wasn’t much impressed with the first two shades – the sparkle didn’t want to stick around or build up, and the matte bone shade had next to no pigmentation, however the other 3 shades were smooth and pigmented and blended wonderfully.
Now the real star of the show for me was the two new Instant Light Lip Perfectors, which is a formula I’ve raved about for years here. The addition of ’07 Toffee Pink Shimmer’ and ’08 Plum Shimmer’ really round out the entire range. Shade 07 is a fabulous your-lips-but-better mauve, and 08 will be a huge hit with those who love that lollipop-stained berry look!
There was also a blush and a handful of bright and cheery lipsticks in the collection this year, one of which is the Rouge Eclat Lipstick in #24 Pink Cherry. These lipsticks are smoothing with an age-defying complex that fights dehydration, minimizes fine lines and boosts collagen. I’ll be giving away one of these to one lucky winner who enters using the form below!
