The colour they sent me Rose Praline 26, is a soft pinky brown. Very flattering on and suitable for most complexions, this is a perfect wearable everyday colour. As you can see from the photo above the lipstick is in a glorious and glamorous gold case. The sort of lippie you would be proud to bring out of your bag in a posh restaurant or cool bar.
A lovely wearable colour
On application the lipstick feels nourishing on, lightweight and has a lovely scent which reminds me of a sweet shop. It lasts through eating but I found it does need another application later on in the day. Using a lip pencil, applying two applications and blotting inbetween would help make it last longer.
Rouge Eclat age defying lipsticks are available from Clarins, John Lewis, Debenhams and other beauty counters priced at £19.50.
Ombre Iridescent cream to powder eyeshadow in silver plum
Another Spring release is the Ombre Iridescent cream to powder eyeshadow. These day to night eyeshadows are available in 6 colours, with 4 new for Spring. With a pearlescent look when applied the eyeshadow has 'soft focus' pigments so that the eye area looks fresh and lines minimised. On application I found the eyeshadow blended well with my finger rather than a brush and lasted all day with only a little creasing along the way. Priced at £19 a little goes a long way.
Wearing both products
Clarins products are luxury products and the price point is not cheap however I do feel you get what you pay for, in the combination of beautiful packaging, lovely colours and extra benefits.
Rose Praline Rouge Eclat lipstick and Silver Plum Ombre Iridescente eye shadow
Tweezerman are well known on the beauty market for providing excellent Tweezers and brow products. I was sent a mini slant tweezers to review from Tweezerman. This convenient tweezers is a great travelling product and perfect to keep in your bag at any time.
On the packaging it says 'Expert Tools For Expert Results', and it sure lives up to this quote. Precision is super, and the slanted end makes it easy to get even those tiny stray hairs and to tidy up your brows. The little plastic case protects the product and stops you scratching you hand when you rummage in your bag.
As you can see with dark brows a great tweezers is essential to me
The original Slant tweezers are a beauty classic - and an InStyle Best Beauty Buy award-winner for Best Tweezers in 2015. Hand filed and slanted to grab every hair I would recommend this travel version - what's not to love!
The mini slant tweezers are priced at £12.50 and are available from John Lewis, Feel Unique and other good beauty stores.
Tell me, have you ever used Clarins or Tweezerman products? What do you think of the products I have reviewed?
