So with the arrival of spring, Clarins have released their new spring 2014 collection which is entitled Opalescence and you can check out all the products here, I just had to have a separate post to feature all of the pretty make up products <3
There are four shades in total but I opted for the 'candy' shade which is photographed above.
The Multi-Blush Cream Blush is a cream-to-powder formula that contains a mix of Rose, Mimosa and Sunflower waxes to keep skin hydrated, and a "Light Optimizing Complex" to boost radiance. What I love about the blushers from this new collection is that it gives something back to the skin and in this case, a possible prevention of dehydration. It sure is nice to own a make-up product that is beneficial to the skin.Wearing this instantly makes me look naturally flushed with colour and it was amazingly easy to apply too, simply blend it away with your fingertips or you can use a stippling brush if you prefer precision.
The pigmentation is lovely and this is such a build able product, you won't have to worry about it being heavy/harsh at the first usage because it can deliver a slight pop of colour to a full on flush of pink, it truly is great for everyone.
Candy is a beautiful soft pink that leans towards a coral shade. The Multi-Blush formula just melts into the skin, this is the creamiest of all formulas but once applied onto to skin it instantly turns into a matte finish, even though it dries matte pretty quick, the formulation is silky enough to blend out to an even finish. Candy actually has the subtlest hint of gold shimmer running through it and this is what gives your skin that radiant look. The shimmer is not too apparent so you will not be looking like a disco ball but you'll be seen as a natural and radiant beauty. It is very flattering indeed.
Wear time is good since it does last a good couple of hours but you will need to touch up - if you want it to carry throughout the rest of your day. This cute compact is ace for on the go since it is so lightweight and it has a built in mirror.
These blushers deserve a swatch because the formula is just incredible! It's so airy and amazingly soft and the fact that these look better up close than in photos. Once you do you'll be able to understand what I'm talking about :)
