Clarins/Garden Escape Spring Collection 2015

I am so excited to have some news straight from Clarins HQ about the amazing new releases for the spring collection, it launches next week!
Let me introduce you to the Clarins Garden Escape Collection Spring 2015, a collection consisting of some amazing products to help you create a pastel perfect finish for the spring season, I have been lucky enough to have been able to review some of the products* ahead of next weeks release....
Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector is going to be a huge hit I'm sure, If your a fan of the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector then I promise you will love these, a balm formula that combines make up and skin care in one, they provide a really subtle hint of colour to the lips, and they are packed with shea butter, vitamin e, and mango to keep lips hydrated all day. The 3D pigments give you a lovely luminous glow and a fuller appearance whilst still keeping your spring make up look fresh.
 I've swatched two of the shades from the 6 that will be released next week, the shades range from a light pink to a brown nude shade, there is something for everyone.

This is shade 01 Rose and I'd describe it as a nude pink candy floss hue, it adds a real natural flush of pinkness to the skin and coming into spring time this will look beautiful with pink cheeks and pale skin, absolutely gorgeous.
 This is shade 04 Orange, a lovely coral hue that adds a little pop of colour, this one could take you right through to summer too.
 The colours are subtle but still have great pay off, the handy twist up wands make them perfect for popping in your handbag and make them really easy to apply on the go. Perfect for everyday wear, £18.

For those of you in search of a bolder look, fear not! Clarins have it covered with two lovely new shades of lipstick, I've reviewed Shade 22 Coral Dahlia, you know I'm a huge fan of Clarins lipsticks anyway, and this hasn't disappointed me!

I adore the way the brand has been stamped into the lippie, it really oozes high end luxury and the bullet itself is shaped to hug your lips perfectly. As you'd expect its been packed full off goodness for your lips and it's not drying at all so it's wearable all day or night with ease. I always find the colour pay off really impressive with these lipsticks and the wear time averages a good couple of hours. They leave your pout looking incredibly shiny, no stickiness and no horrible residues or staining either, the lipstick is quite weighty and again it just gives a real luxury feel, these will be another hit for this collection.

There is also a shadow and cheek palette on offer, I'm sure you'll agree this blusher is gorgeous.
This is the Blush Prodige Shade 08, it has a lovely natural matte pink blush in 2 sections along with two shimmer infused sections to give a perfect illuminated effect to the apples of your cheeks, it's not really shimmery either which is always a good thing with make up products for this time of year.

The shades compliment each other and give such a lovely combo.
The palette includes a brush to and a mirror, and retails at £26.

Here are the other offerings from the Garden Escape Collection...

I am in love with this shadow palette and I'll be hitting the Clarins counter on Monday to pick it up, how gorgeous are these shades? 

Limited edition goodness that comes together to offer shades of a garden in bloom, earthy hues of green and brown, whilst incorporating some beautiful pinky tones, you'll be able to create some beautiful spring smokes with this, although the pretty pattern makes it just as appealing to look at!
This will retail at £32, and as with all the other Clarins shadows I've reviewed you can use them wet or dry, I really am excited to try that dark green as a liner using a wet angled brush.
I'm really intrigued by these Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils too, lip oils?! How exciting, the Instant Light products are always really impressive so I'm excited to try these too. On line exclusives and they will retail at £18 each. The shades are Honey  Raspberry.

There is also a gorgeous Intense Green liner pencil on offer which will be on sale at £17.

Clarins have definitely impressed me with this collection, if your looking to update a particular product or treat yourself to a whole new collection I'd highly recommend this one. All the products will help you achieve that delicate yet bright spring complexion. I will be creating some looks using these products so keep an eye out for my upcoming posts.

Head to your nearest Clarins counter on Monday the 12th January to pick up the collection.
