Clarins new Summer 2014 Colours of Brazil Collection
available online and on counters from May 2014

When I was in Paris with Clarins last month I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek, a fleeting glance, at the new Colours of Brazil Summer collection with is due to hit counters and their online store in May. As always with Clarins collection, this new launch is completely sumptuous and screams summertime skin with a pop of on trend eyes for a really striking, fun range of products.

The Clarins Summer Bronzing Palette (limited edition) is a huge mosaic of matte and shimmer shades, a jigsaw of warm and cool toned bronzed hues with a hint of golden shimmer to help you customise your perfect finish. The powder is fine and smooth to apply and is easy to build up whether you want a light flush of colour or a more defined, contoured look. The overall finish is very neutral and matte which makes quite a pleasant change from the shimmer-ladened bronzers I tend to go for but the little square of golden iridescent powder means you can still add a hint of gleam to your skin.

The Clarins Eyeshadow Quartet & Eye Liner Palette (limited edition) is probably the most striking piece from this new collection and is a must if you love your satin-soft, matte neutral shadows with a pop of cobalt blue or hint of peachy coral. At first I was a bit unsure about this palette and recoiled at the thought of the blue eye liner but after I had had a little play and used all the shadows on the above look, I was really sold on this palette. I used the light taupe shade all over my lid and placed the peachy shade over the top in the corner of my eyes. I then placed the rich bronze shade in the outside half of my lid and then buffed the darkest, chocolate brown hue into my crease. As for the blue liner, I just lightly ran the powder through my bottom lash line to add definition and a fresh take on your standard black or brown liner. The colour is rich and extremely pigmented but doesn't scream 90s blue shadow and actually makes me want to embrace the bold colours more this Summer.

Are you excited by this new collection from Clarins?

I have to say that I was never much of a clarions fan, their product didn't intrigue me that much. But these look very pretty!
