Coming up | Clarins Colour Breeze (Spring 2012)

I know I’m not the only one going crazy waiting for Clarins’ Enchanted Summer collection, so perhaps this’ll help tide you over!

Clarins’s Spring 2012 collection, Colour Breeze, includes the launch of the new (and much-anticipated) Gloss Prodige line, with eight gorgeously fresh shades. But, of course, that’s not all…

The Colour Breeze lineup

Gloss Prodige

Eight ultra-shiny shades inflused with raspberry oil, Maxi-Lip™ peptides, hyaluronic acid, and a delicious scent with notes of blackberry and liquorice.

  • 01 Chocolate
  • 02 Nude
  • 03 Rose
  • 04 Candy
  • 05 Grenadine
  • 06 Raspberry
  • 07 Blackberry
  • 08 Papaya

6ml/$22 CAD; permanent.

Colour Breeze Face & Blush Powder

A super-cute collector’s palette that combines 4 luminous shades to create an even, matte complexion.

9g/$40 CAD; limited edition.

Instant Light Blush

Am I the only one that goes absolutely crazy for products in unexpected formats? I’ve been on the hunt for a good liquid blush for ages, and this one definitely lives up to my expectations. (More on that tomorrow, though!)

The Instant Light Blush comes in three shades, but one (02 Coral Tonic) isn’t available in Canada. (It’s available in the US, though, if you’re trying to find it!)

  • 01 Vitamin Pink
  • 03 Brown Fizz

7ml/$28 CAD; limited edition.

Ombre Minérale 4 Couleurs

Everyone knows I’m a sucker for a Clarins quad, so (of course), I’m thrilled to see they’ve put one out for Colour Breeze. Blue Sky is the perfect interpretation of the Clarins spring look – or is it the other way around?

5.8g/$42 CAD; limited edition.

Joli Rouge

  • 734 Poppy Red
  • 735 Baby Pink

3.5g/$27 CAD; limited edition shades.


Joli Rouge Brillant (Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick)

  • 15 Pink Magnolia
  • 16 Pink Coral

3.5g/$27 CAD; limited edition shades.

Wonder Longueur (Wonder Length) Mascara

The really interesting thing about this product isn’t the product itself – it’s the way it changes based on the market. Sometimes it’s the Wonder Longueur, sometimes it’s the Wonder Length; sometimes it’s gold, sometimes it’s silver.

Kind of cool, right? It’s like the little Clark Kent of the beauty world.

  • 01 Wonder Black

Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate

They call it the magic wand corrector. I call it probably filled with silicones. The combination thereof makes me extremely sad.

This was meant to be a short, succinct, time-saving post. (I guess I kind of failed on that one all three counts.)


How much do you love the new Clarins site? Talk about chic!

    Wow! Those liquid blushes look amazing – I love blush in general and like you, I love unexpected formats so Clarins has definitely hit the mark there.
    My recent post Blog Updates and Suqqu Ichijiku + RBR Bronzer FOTD

    • They're just as amazing in real life as they look on the screen! ;) More on that soon – I'm hoping to get a post up on Vitamin Pink either today or tomorrow,

  • The liquid blush vitamin pink is amazing… wonderful bright colour! I have been using it for about a week and absolutely love it. There is a swatch on my blog though the language might be difficult, the pictures might speak for themselves.
    Thank you for the wonderful article! I didn't mind you "failing" your intentions to be shorter – love your posts!

    • Aww, thank you! I'm definitely glad to hear that, seeing as I've got just about zero impulse-control :P

      Glad to see I'm not the only one loving Vitamin Pink :) I loved the photos in your review – they really do speak for themselves!

  • Ines

    I saw the coral blush at Pharmaprix (that's Shoppers for the rest of you)… I loved the texture of the gloss but I couldn't get over the strong flavor/scent :(

    • Aww, sorry to hear that, Ines! :( I haven't gotten a chance to test them out yet, but I usually love Clarins' scents. We'll see how it goes, I guess!

      Coral Tonic isn't on the English Clarins site, so maybe it's sold out (or a Québec-only thing?)

      • Ines

        The scent isn't by all means BAD. It smells yummy. But it just WILL NOT FADE. I don't mind it smelling yummy for the first couple minutes (like Buxom Lip Polishes or the MAC lip things) but the smell stays until it wears off… Also it's freakin' STRONG – I wore it at the office and 5 people asked who had gummi bears.

        Maybe it's a QC only thing – I have no clue – but I do remember thinking it was pretty :) I just bought 3 new blushes so no Clarins for me (I purchased MAC Mocha, Well Dressed and NARS Penny Lane, I'm going through a soft pink phase)!

  • YAY! I'm so happy this review is coming up. I was thisclose to buying the Poppy Red lipstick but thought I'd wait for some decent reviews ;) Really happy I did! Can't wait!
    My recent post Blogiversary!

    • I won't be reviewing the lipsticks – just what's in the first and last images. Sorry, Annie! I think I remember Karen (Makeup and Beauty Blog) covering them recently, though, if that helps :) Her reviews are usually pretty good!

  • mostlysunnybunny

    Oh my God look at all the good stuff!!! I have high hopes for the blush! I don't think I can wear that eyeshadow quad but you will for sure rock it!
    My recent post In These Shoes?

    • Eep, here's to hoping! Blues and seafoam greens can really go either way on me, so I have my fingers crossed ;o)

  • Wooooow, i absolutely love all the shades, the compact, the lipsticks, the glosses and of course the quad! Gosh, I really need money :( Maybe I should steal some from my mum haha! :P Can't let these babies pass! Hehe~
    My recent post Clarins Cilt Bakim Seti Kazanmak İsteyen? – İkinci Çekilişim! :)

    • Haha, try asking reeeeally nicely, first! :P And definitely start saving up for Enchanted Summer – I have a feeling it's going to be just as stunning ;)

  • That is such an interesting way to package liquid blush, looks like a foundation bottle! I don't have anything from clarins but they're stuff always seems so natural and easy to wear! love the lip shades:)
    My recent post Mini Haul: Skin Food nail polishes & eyeliner brush! (swatches)

    • A tiny, tiny one ;o) It's like a shorter, fatter Gloss Prodige — too cute!

      You should give Clarins a try sometime ;) Natural & easy to wear hits the nail right on the head, but it's balanced out with just the right number of brights & bolds, too.

  • Go figure why you guys don't get the coral blush and we don't get the pink one!! However, I did buy the Coral and it's virtually invisible on my nc15 skin. Meh.

    • Aww! Sorry to hear that, lovely :( I do find the pink one blends away quite easily – perhaps try blending out with patting (instead of rubbing) or, if you're already patting, a stippling brush instead of fingertips?

  • i wanna try out rose n grenadine gloss! xoxo elle
