Spring is the time to reawaken from our winter slumber and put on a fresh brave face. Clarins’ new Opalescence spring make-up collection helps provide that youthful radiance.

Limited Edition Face & Blush Powder £30
Ideal for all skin tones offering a boost of radiance with its trio of shades.

Ways to apply: Sweep across all three shades to brighten the face; use as blusher by using just the pink tone for a rosy glow or add warmth with the sun shaped brown shade.

Packaging: the pearly holographic lid represents the fresh vitality the palette offers.


Multi Blush Cream £18
This lightweight cream magically transforms into a powder upon application and melts into the skin to sculpt, smooth and add a flush of healthy colour.

Floral waxes from rose, mimosa, jojoba and sunflower helps protect the skin against dehydration.

Shades available are 01 Peach, 02 Candy, 03 Grenadine (shown in image) and 04 Rosewood.

This new multi blush can also be applied to the lips for a natural look with a lightly powdered matte finish. For a glossier texture add Gloss Prodige in Crystal (mentioned below)



Ombre Minerale in Smokey Plum £17
Smoking! This mineral eyeshadow offers a seductive luminous plum colour.

The highly pigmented formula gives intense colour through both wet and dry application.



Limited Edition Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Shade 12 Vibrant Light £31
Four shades: Soft pink for the whole eyelid; soft grey for the outer corner, the eye crease and under lower lashes; silver highlighter for centre of eyelid and inner corner of the eye; then the plum powder eyeliner for the base of the upper lashes.

Use dry for a subtle look or dampen the applicator for a more vivid colour.

Gloss Prodige £17
Ultra glossy and non sticky, Gloss Pridige optimises the effect of light on the lips. Lips look naturally fuller thanks to the intelligent ‘Suprashine Colour Complex’.

Raspberry oil nourishes the lips to help prevent cracking.
