But basically, Adore Beauty is Australia’s leading authorised online beauty shop and I partnered with them very early on in my channel (before I had 500 subscribers). They send me new products from various makeup collections that they stock on their website, then I go ahead and test them out and film a short review/demonstration or makeup tutorial.
So this video is a review and demonstration on two new products from Clarins Colour Definition Fall Makeup Collection – the 3D Radiance Face Powder and the Instant Definition Mascara.
First up is the Clarins Colour Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder. It comes in Clarins’ signature gold compact (so pretty but so scratch and fingerprints prone) and the design of the powder itself is so fun and different, not to mention, beautifully intricate.
It’s like a Gameboy and a face powder had a baby LOL!
The powder has a four-toned, 3D pixel design, with the beige and peach pixels helping to even out and illuminate the skin, and the pink and lilac pixels giving radiance and glow.
As you can see from the swatches, the pink and the lilac pixels are quite pigmented. But mixed together, the overall effect is sheer.
The powder is said to suit all skin tones, but it will show up better on those with fair skin. Therefore, those with darker skin tones may want to use this as a highlight instead. I used this as an all over finishing powder and it gave my skin a subtle healthy glow.
Overall, I really like this face powder (I have to admit, a big part of the ‘like’ comes from the adorable design), even though its effects are not very drastic or noticeable. It feels silky smooth on the skin and it definitely is something I would wear all year round!
Next is the Clarins Instant Definition Mascara. Adore Beauty sent me ‘intense blue’, but it’s also available in ‘intense brown’ and ‘intense black’.
It also comes in the signature gold packaging and features an innovative 2-in-1 brush design, where the the tip of the brush is smaller. That enables the brush to seperate and lengthen every lash, even the small ones in the corners of the eyes.
The mascara has a repairing and nourishing formula which helps to strengthen the lashes and also suitable for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes.
I have naturally straight and thin lashes, and I’ve yet to find my HG mascara. Although this mascara didn’t manage to hold the curls, it did lengthen and define my lashes nicely. So I imagine those who have naturally curly lashes will really love this mascara!
So what are your thoughts on these two new products from Clarins?
