Clarins/Colours Of Brazil Summer Collection 2014

The clocks have changed and we have even seen a hint of the sun lately, summer is on it's way.
As soon as I saw this collection it immediately put me in the mindset of sandy beaches, pina colada's and poolside glam, and I cannot wait to use these products on my holidays this year!

This collection is awash with bronzes, azures, golden tones, shimmers and textures, the palette's have some fantastic detailing on them to giving them a real tropical feel. They ooze luxury and sunny days.
Clarins have very cleverly brought Brazil to their newest collection, Brazil will be in the spotlight a lot this year and I have no doubt this collection will be a sell out too! 

The highlight of this collection is definitely the 'Colours Of Brazil' Quartet and Eye Liner Palette (£39) it's limited edition, this one has 4 matte and satin shadows and an intense royal blue eye liner, along with the precision application brushes.

Don't let the blue liner put you off, it may scream 90's at you in the pan but it really is gorgeous when on the eyes, brightens and compliments a tan, this is such a versatile colour and can be used dry for a subtle effect, or wet for evening glamour without the heaviness of a black liner. 

The Summer Bronzing Palette Compact (£30) a sumptuous pan of terracotta and brown hues all encased in an aztec South American style compact, complete with mirror, sweep this across your cheeks down the bridge of your nose and across your d├ęcolletage for instant radiance and a sun kissed glow.

I really do love the fact this palette is a matte finish with no shimmer particles so you wont be left looking like a glowing beacon when the temperature heats up.

Lip crayons are so convenient and putting the summer lip colours in this collection in this formula are on the go friendly. This collection boasts 6 shades, from a light baby pink to a bronze toned coffee shade, I have to say the coffee isn't for me at all, I much prefer my brights when on holiday, the My Pink shade is one that reacts to the PH in your lips to create a unique personal shade.

These retail at £18 each and they are packed full of shea butter for moisturising softness and a pop of colour.
The wear time on these is a good couple of hours, although if your in and out the pool then you may need to reapply more often.

I've been reviewing three of the lip crayons this week, they smell divine, sweet scented and they glide on the lips beautifully....

From the top shade 01, 03 and 05 at the bottom.

Finally the 'Truly Waterproof' Mascara (£21) is a perfect addition to your summer make up bag, available in black and a gorgeous striking blue shade

It's continuous 12 hour formula protects lashes from the harsh effects of chlorine, salt and UV rays.

This beautiful Brazillian inspired collection hits Clarins counters on the 29th of April, get there quick to treat yourself to the essential in summer make up that'll take you from day to night with a few staple pieces in your make up bag.
