This really is a month of lots of makeup launches and so much makeup to play with so you can say I am like a kid in a candy store. This month Clarins launches their new makeup the Garden Escape collection inspired by the garden with lots of pretty colours to give a really fresh looking complexion.

EYESHADOW clarinsThe Blush prodige in sweet rose (R360) is a new shade and really gives the illusion of fresh looking cheeks and adding a pop of colour to give a really healthy looking complexion. A blush is always a great way to add definition to your makeup especially if you aren’t going for anything on the eyes.clarins blushThe Instant Light perfector balms (R250) were created due to the amazing success of the instant lip perfectors with that success Clarins has now introduced these ultra hydrating balms. Enriched with extracts of wild mango and shea they feel amazing on with pretty shades to brighten up your face due to the gorgeous shine.

The green shades woud be great wet for a pop for an evening look. I applied a Clarins mascara but there is the wonder perfect mascara in the new collection (R265).

There is the Instant light brush on perfector (R315) that I didn’t get my hands on but will definitely go and try, it brightens and lightens the complexion and would be perfect for when I am looking a bit pastey.
