I know what I will be asking for on Mothers Day…
Isn’t it the perfect gift from your little ones, a gift to spoil Mummy? The spring Opalescence range from Clarins is beautiful. I would love to receive these, wrapped in homemade wrapping paper and with cards made by little hands that say ‘I love you Mummy’.
If you read this blog regularly, you will know that I share my love of make-up by giving you some tools and resources to get the most out of your beauty products. Make-up is so life enhancing and having the right products and know how means make-up can give you such self confidence. The confidence to know you look your best even when you have been up for three nights in a row with sick kids.
I can’t recommend this range enough. It has all bases covered (no pun intended!). An Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base, Opalescence Face and Blush Powder (a truly beautiful piece), multi blush, Ombre Minérale Eye Quartet Palette, Instant Definition Mascara, Joli Rouge Brilliant Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick and the Gloss Prodige glosses.
And it’s a good thing I have 3 children because I am coveting all the items in this range! I can have lipstick and creme blusher from one, Face and Blush Powder (so gorgeous) and lipgloss from another and the eye-shadow and mascara from my third. Perfect.
And perfect is how I would describe the range. The colours are fresh, sooo pretty and very flattering. Just right for putting the colour back into our sleep deprived cheeks.
The range makes such a lovely gift because not only is it luxurious to wear, but the items feel so great in the hand as well. The lipsticks and compacts are heavy and satisfying to hold and close with an expensive click. They are the sort of makeup pieces you will want to get out in public. Just to show them off!
The stand out piece is the Face and Blush Powder with its holographic lid. The design of the palette is just beautiful. I love a bit of astrology and the palette looks very astrological to me with its interlocking circles and smattering of gold. I would really be in two minds as to whether I could actually use it or just sit and admire its loveliness!
Start dropping those hints to hubby now! (Or maybe just forward him this post, it might be better!)
