Makeup Review: Clarins

I had the up most pleasure yesterday of being let loose on a whole Clarins stand at the Stuttafords in Sandton City for an official press launch for E! Entertainment and Style Network South Africa, which 5 lucky ladies had won makeovers which included new hairstyles, colours and cuts by Tannaz Salon, to be dressed by the instore Stuttafords personal shopper, House of Janine and makeup done by artists using on the finest Clarins makeup products.

Being a freelance artist, I do not feel the need to only use one product in my makeup kit. I use everything like MAC, Inglot, Kryolan, Smashbox and Benefit to name a few, but I am always willing to learn and to use new products if they are worth my while and will benefit my makeup kit and my clients faces.

Having the oppurtunity to have a quick product training on the Clarins products was really great and informative for me, and the other freelance artist, Liezel that was doing makeup alongside me.

Clarins have a lot of different products, these are the ones I really loved. They are:

  • Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch which retails for R340

This little pot of magic, is that – MAGIC! You use it, like you would a primer for under your makeup or you can wear it alone. You would apply this to problem areas on your face over fine wrinkles or large exposed pores which minimizes the appearance of problems on your skin.

Once you apply foundation over the instant smooth, you really are like WHAT problems? The foundation also sits perfectly on top of the instant smooth, instead of soaking into your skin which can sometimes make the foundation appear “cake-y”.

  • Instant Light Brush on Perfector which retails for R310

This hydrating perfector helps get rid of shadowy areas, like dark circles around the eyes but still promotes radiance in the skin.

This can be used around the eyes, sides of the nose, expression lines, middle of the forehead or anywhere where expression lines appear.

  • Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector retails for R160

This can be worn alone or with lip colour underneath. It gives lips a slight shine while repairing them and makes them have a softer, smoother texture. Worth every cent. I suggest you go buy it ASAP for real kiss-me-lips!

What is your favourite Clarins product?

  1. Omg. So stunning Fi. Wish I was there to see your magic. Thank goodness for makeup artists. I think they are super important. Imagine just getting dressed and doing hair? It’s never finished without the makeup. Haha. I also used to be a fan of clarins. Thanks for the products review. Weird. There were two words constantly flashing in my mind today. Product review. Haha.
