Clarins - New Products for 2013 (Lipstick & Concealer)

Hey guys today I have two new products by Clarins to show you! The first product is the Instant Concealer* (RRP $42) which is a cream concealer that instantly refreshes the eyes, hides dark circles, smooths eyes and reduces puffiness. It contains a caffeine extract to stimulate the skin and helps to decongest skin from signs of fatigue. It works similar to veil by using a hue that is opposite of that of a dark circle so it neutralizes the dark circle and allows the skin to have an even skin tone. This concealer is available in 3 shades; 01 Light, 02 Medium and 03 Dark. I have trialled 02 Medium for a week now and am loving how creamy and dewy it makes me look. It does a great job at covering any imperfections and dark spots and works as a semi to full coverage (buildable). This concealer is set to be released on the 7th of October and is a brilliant and super hydrating concealer!

The second product is the Limited Edition Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm* (RRP $34). I am showing you the shade 08. Crystal berry, which is a lovely sheer cranberry colour. The awesome thing about this lip balm is that it delivers lipstick true colour due to the colour heart but also has a crystal balm surrounding the actual lipstick colour. It's really neat and reminds me of the Benefit - Fake Up technology - but in a lipstick version! This lip balm is buildable for a darker colour payoff. In the photos I have only applied 1 single coat but it does go darker when more coats are applied. It is super hydrating and gives a gorgeous flush of colour. I did find it somewhat difficult to apply the colour perfectly inside my lips because the colour is only in the middle of the lipstick so I just used my finger to evenly spread the colour around. This product smells like lollies...yum! This product is already released so make sure you go check it out next time you're by the Clarins counter!

Look at that amazing barrel of hydrating colour! Oh yeah!!

So what do you think of these new Clarins products? The lip balm is definitely a new favourite and the concealer is such a nice product to use on special occasions! Let me know if you try anything out!
