Clarins 'Garden Escape' Spring'15 Collection | Product Review & Swatches

Hello beauties,

Clarins Spring '15 is here! Garden Escape is inspired by the beautiful, radiant garden and all its beautiful colors. The collection is focused on fresh and luminous makeup with shades ranging from pastel pinks to zesty corals, from woody taupes to pine greens and shiny, luscious lips to brighten up the delicate complexion.

The Garden Escape Collection includes a limited edition eyeshadow palette, eye khol pencil, mascara, blush, and some new lip products (lip oils and lip balm perfectors).


The first product I am reviewing is the Blush in the shade Sweet Rose. It comes in a gorgeous, luxurious gold packaging and a red velvet case. 

This blush is a muted pink that brightens up the complexion for a healthy and fresh look. It is divided into 4 blocks, two are matte versions of the color and the other two are shimmery versions of the color. You can swirl your brush around to get a mix of both on your skin or you can use your brush in one block.

The shimmery shade acts as a lovely blush topper to add luminosity back to the cheeks.

The collection also has a new Crayon Khol Eye Pencil in the shade Go Green. Out with the black, its far too classic and in with the green! It adds a beautiful touch and pop to the eyes yet its elegant and sophisticated.
Here is a smokey liner look I did using the eye pencil. Ofcourse you can go lighter but I wanted to see how far I can go with it, and let me tell you it blends so well! It has a really nice brush attached to it at the bottom.

Light Lip Balm Perfectors:

Following on from the success of the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors, Clarins released these new ultra-absorbent balms, The Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. This range comes in 6 different shades.

Its formula is rich in active plant ingredients that moisturize and illuminate the lips.

The lip balms have a pleasant, vanilla like smell.

They are very sheer but VERY shiny. If that is your thing, you will love these! They have a light weight texture so they are very comfortable on the lips.
