Clarins and Tweezerman Review

Clarins have brought out some new beauty products for Spring. 

Their best selling Rouge Eclat age-defying lipstick has 4 new pretty shades. These lipstick are great for older ladies and those that are concerned about fine lines around the lip area. Their Nutri-Youth complex is packed full of products that really feel they do your lips good, Vitamin E, Mimosa, Jojoba and Sunfower all natural plant waxes. In shades such as Hot Rose, Pink Blossom, Pink Cherry and Rose Praline these flattering colours add a touch of beauty to the lips.

Rose Praline

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.

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?


  1. The lipstick is a really lovely shade and really suits you. I've been tempted to by the Clarins lip perfecting base because that looks awesome x

    1. Thank you Rhian. I will have to check the lip perfecting base out.

  2. I like the look of those tweezers! It pays to buy a decent pair I think! I do like the Ombre Iridescent cream to powder eyeshadow aas well, the colour is really nice xx

    1. The eyeshadow is really soft on the skin too and very flattering on. It's not a dense colour if you know what I mean. It certainly does pay to buy a decent pair of Tweezers.

  3. Love the Rose praline shade. Reminds of the Bagsy velvet lip colour that I have. Very flattering. Tx

  4. Love the shade of lipstick. Its one of my favourite shades & I love any lipstick with Vitamin E too.
    Looks amazing on you :D
    Will check the brand.

  5. Love the eyeshadow and I adore a good pair of tweezers, I am so fussy about them and always buy the same brand, but maybe I should branch out a bit :)

  6. Love the lipstick shade and you've just reminded I need a good pair of tweezers as mine as terrible! Great review x

  7. I haven't tried any of Clarins' make up as yet, that lipstick is a lovely shade though and the fact it's specially formulated for those concerned about fine lines etc is great as this is not something that a regular lippie addresses. x

    1. Yes, and I am starting to get fine lines now around my lips.

  8. I love Clarins products. They are all such great quality and they last for ages too.

  9. Ooh they look some fab products! I still need to try something from Clarins

  10. That lip colour is fabulous, it looks great on you x
