Review of the new additions to the Clarins Instant Radiance Collection:


Whilst walking past the Clarins stand I noticed the new Instant Radiance Collection. These products are the new additions to the Instant light range that Clarins already have.

I am already a big fan of the instant light natural lip perfectors so wanted to try some of the new items added to the collection. This is part of the spring/summer 2016 range, and it all looks very pretty!

It includes four shimmery eye shadows that are a cream to powder formulation, new colours of the Joli Rouge lipsticks, a five eye shadow neutral palette, ‘Be long’ mascara, an instant light under eye concealer, and two new shades of the instant lip perfectors.

I decided to pick up one of the eyeshadows in the shade silver pink, a Joli Rouge lipstick in Raspberry, and the concealer.


Shimmery Eye Shadow: Silver Pink. -Β£19

The pigmentation of the eyeshadow is great and lasts really well. You can create a natural daytime look with a light sweep across the eye lid or enhance it by blending all over with a dark chocolate brown in the crease. There are definitely cheaper alternatives on the market, however, the eyeshadows come in pretty dainty pots with different metallic lids, and the staying power is great.

Joli Rouge Lipstick: Raspberry. -Β£19.50

I am a big big fan of the Joli Rouge lipsticks and if you are a Clarins fan you probably know why. Their lipsticks glide on really well and stay on throughout the day. The light gold packaging adds a really elegant touch as well as there being a good range of colours to choose from. They are very moisturising which is great for this time of year, and are nice and creamy in formula. The only thing I will say is that when you flick through the colour range online, it is very inaccurate to the colour when you swatch it. If buying, I would recommend going in store so you can see the colours properly.

Instant Concealer -Β£21.50

I’m not really a foundation fan as I don’t like wearing heavy products on my skin. When looking at this foundation, it says how the coverage is medium/full but is lightweight on the skin. Its primary purpose is to be an undereye concealer, but it can also be used on blemishes and uneven skin tones. On first use, I didn’t like it as the coverage was pretty full on! But, I then realised you needed the smallest pea-sized amount to get the coverage you want without the ‘cakey’ feeling. It has now become part of my everyday makeup routine and I use it with two other concealers to get a lightweight but full coverage all over my skin.


All of the products definitely give the glow factor that you want your skin to have at this time of year and I feel like they can be transition pieces throughout the spring and summer. Above are some of the other products that I use every day to complete the look.
