Clarins Fall 2014 Ladylike Collection: Review and Swatches
For Fall 2014, Clarins has released the LadyLike Collection featuring an array of chic and feminine colors in shades of autumn. Today I will be reviewing a blush, a lipstick, and two matte shadows from the collection. To see some swatches and a look I created, click.......
Clarins Fall 2014 Ladylike Collection: Review and Swatches
Blush Prodige in "07 Tawny Pink" ($32):
Made with bamboo and tomato extract, this powder blush gives the cheeks a healthy and alluring glow. The shade "07 Tawny Pink" is a very sophisticated warm mauve. There are some subtle golden shimmer in the blush but when applied on the cheeks, the color is mostly matte. The blush comes in a beautiful reflective cool gold compact with a small brush for on-the-go application.

Ombre Matte Cream-to-Powder Matte Eyeshadow in "02 Nude Pink" & "04 Rosewood" ($24):
With a compact powder formulation, these Ombre Matte shadows apply like cream shadows, very smooth and soft. I personally think the name of these guys is a bit misleading as the the product is actually powder and not cream, but it does have a very fine and smooth texture so it almost feels like it's a cream.
"Nude Pink" looks like a soft nude in the pot but when applied, it's a very pale ivory. "Rosewood" is a greyish brown. Both are pigmented and blends well. I experienced no creasing and only minor fading when worn on bare lids.

Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick in "18 Strawberry Pink" ($27):
Infused with jojoba, cocoa, sunflower, and mimosa wax, the Rouge Eclat lipsticks protects lips against dehydration and boosts collagen production. The formulation is lightweight yet nourishing. "18 Strawberry Pink" is a warm rose with subtle golden shimmers. The color is very buildable so you can either go with a sheer wash of color or a more intense pout. The finish has a natural sheen.

Here I did a simple look using all the products mentioned above. I am very much in love with how easy each product is to pull off. For the shadows I simply used my fingers to apply and blend and the lipstick can be applied in a flash without the need of a lip brush or a mirror.
So, what do you guys think of these new releases, do you plan on picking anything up from the new collection? Share your thoughts with me in the comments below!
