Clarins Aquatic Treasures

Recently Clarins has become one of my favourite brands, I hadn't used many of their products before this year but everything I have tried so far has been great! Their Instant Light Lip Perfecters are a holy grail product for me now and I always have one in my bag - plus their scent is incredible!

Last week they released their summer collection - Aquatic Treasures - and I instantly fell in love, it is a small yet beautiful collection, full of wearable shades that would suit anyone. I picked up two items from the collection; the bronzer and one of the eyeshadows. 

Ok... so can we just take a second and just look at this! This is by far the most beautiful bronzer I have every seen, I dont even want to swatch it, the detail is incredible and makes it feel like a special edition product. The shade is actually made up of four different tones and is a warm bronzer so I wouldnt recomend it as a contour if you want the shadow effect but is lovely to warm up the face. The formula appears to be fairly lightweight and buildable without going cakey, I think if you wanted a less warm tone you could focus your brush on the lightest quarter and just get a hint of colour, this also gives the option of four different tones depending how dark you want it to be or you can obviously mix them all together and create a mid tone. There is also a huge mirror inside the packaging which is always useful if you need to touch up your make up on the go and dont wanna carry a spare mirror; although due to it being a fairly big product I'm not sure it would make the best handbag option. 

Now for the eyeshadow; first of all the packaging is rose gold so im already obsessed. The shade I got is Aquatic Rose and is basically a pure rose gold shade, it is the most pigmented, beautiful rose gold shade I've ever seen! I have wanted a rose gold shadow for a really long time and have tried different ones but they have all either been too pink or too glittery; but this has a sheen finish it almost looks metallic and I can imagine if used wet could give a foil effect so that is definitely something I need to try. I think this will be great on its own with winged eyeliner and lots of lashes for a really pretty summer look, or blended with a chocolate brown for a smokey more evening look. 

I would definitely recommend this collection I think its super pretty and wearable, I'm not sure how well stocked it is hopefully these are still available, I got mine from debenhams online but I think you can get it from boots aswell. 

Let me know if you have tried any of the summer collections that have been released, and leave any comments below, I read every one and will reply to any questions!
