Clarins NEW Skin Illusion Foundation

I love a new foundation, and I love Clarins, but I don't love the post right now, as I am still waiting on my press sample of this to arrive, and I am itching to try it. EDIT: My foundation arrived and I am going to stick my neck out and say it's great. This is not a foundation for you if you like a full coverage.It's a sheer foundation, which might seem an odd autumnal base, when we usually want a wee bit more coverage, but it has everything … [Read more...]

Clarins launch new matte Joli Rouge Velvet

Matte lipsticks. There's no letting up to this trend. Now Clarins has launched a matte version of Joli Rouge to add to your choices.

Clarins 4-Colour Makeup Pen

NEW Clarins Double Serum relaunch

Clarins Double Serum - a bestseller since it's introduction - is now going through its eighth incarnation! The latest version has a new ingredient  -  turmeric.

But, turmeric does have great properties. I've recently discovered a hand and body cream … [Read more...]

Skin appears radiant, lifted, and youthful. It works … [Read more...]
