I was sadly unable to make the Clarins bloggers event due to work commitments; I wish I was nearer London so I could attend some events! Never mind! The lovely Ally at Clarins was so generous and sent me a massive parcel of products to try out – quote from my sister ‘it’s like someone has tipped a Clarins counter in a bag and sent it to you!’. Wow! This isn't all the products in the photo - my sister stole half of them!!!I have been trying all the products for a few weeks now and really wanted to get a feeling for them as it’s hard to write a review when you haven’t really used the products for very long.
The products sent were all from the Clarins Nude Inspiration Autumn collection, which is stunning and has so lovely neutral colours which you can play with! I have a few favourites from the collection which are:
Joli Rouge 725 Pink Earth lipstick (£14.50)
Nude Inspiration Face & Blush Duo Compact (£28.00)
Concealer Stick shade 2 Pink Beige (£15.00)
I love the Joli Rouge lipsticks, which are so soft and creamy on your lips. I'd really like to try out a pink shade which is my usual colour of lipstick but it's a nice change to have something more natural. They also taste so amazing (I can't quite work out what yet?!) and you can tell this is a high quality lipstick from the smooth, seamless coverage on your lips. My only fault (which might be this particular lipstick!) is the lid keeps falling off in my bag!
If you only buy one product from the range then I recommend the Nude Inspiration Face & Blush Duo (£28.00) which is amazing and a daily must-have for me. The compact powder evens and sets make-up while the complementary blush palette shades can be blended together or applied alone, giving skin a really natural look for autumn. Finally I am also impressed with the concealer stick and have been using 'shade 2 pink beige' the past few weeks. For a concealer stick it is really smooth, as normally they are much 'rougher' and leave massive streaks on your face, but this one from Clarins applies easy and blends in well with my skintone. I have run out of Touche Eclat actually but haven't felt the need to repurchase which is excellent!
I was also sent some lovely bronzers and after sun products which I will reviewing after my holiday in a few weeks, am so excited now. I am off to sunny Spain on the 18th and am excited about trying out the new products! Thanks Clarins for giving me the chance to try out this lovely collection, I am really impressed with the products which are all excellent quality and well worth the cash. What did you guys who attended the bloggers event think? I hope Clarins do another one so more bloggers get the chance to go!
