Clarins latest range to hit the market is the ever so gorgeous Aquatic Treasures collection. It boasts glowy, bronze and aqua hues and it’s safe to say I’m obsessed.
We’ll start off with base and the collection contains two limited editions Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in the shades 04 apricot & 05 golden caramel. These are designed to be worn under make up or mixed in with your base of choice for a illuminise glow. I prefer the latter as I find it’s a little more noticeable and it’s a good way to warm up the complexion without applying a tanner to the face! I prefer the caramel colour for that and opt for the apricot underneath on my cheeks and around the parameters of my face before my foundation for more of a glow. The bronzer included is the Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact which I find a little more on the red side. I don’t really suit this if I use a heavy hand, when I’m completely pale that is, although when fake tanned it looks gorgeous. The formulation is SO pigmented therefore a light hand is a must!
Moving onto eyes and oh my gosh the Ombre Iridescente colours, 01 aquatic rose, aquatic green & 03 aquatic grey, are stunning.These are easily my pick from the collection! Although they look like they’re going to be your typical powder shadow they’re actually super soft, intense and shimmery. They blend beautifully and add some real intensity to the eye. Love them! The aqua shades included are Truly Waterproof Mascara 03 aquatic green (03 intense black is permanent) and the Waterproof Eye Pencil 05 aquatic green (01 noir/black is permanent) – how gorgeous? I love using both of the lower lash line like I have above for something a little different that isn’t too crazy. Both are waterproof and they really don’t move!
Last up are the Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector 02 coral & 04 orange (permanent) and seriously these are one of those products that gets alot of hype online because they’re so hydrating but give the lips a good whack of colour. I do see why! They’re so popular they’re creamy, so moisturising for a tinted product and easy to wear everyday.
Have you tried any of the collection yet?
