Clarins Instant Light Blush

The Clarins Instant Light Blush is part of their beautiful spring collection.
There are three limited edition shades to choose from - Vitamin Pink, Coral Tonic and Brown Fizz. Today I have the pink and coral to show you and Im so impressed I think I will definately invest in the bronze to add to my collection. The blushes have quite a dewy finish so if you are looking for something more natural on your skin then these are for you, they are also quite sheer and not overly pigmented so I think that these would look better on fairer skin tones. I think that they would be fantastic for taking on holiday as they feel so light on the skin - they give my cheeks a really subtle glow, great for when dont want to go for a full on powder blusher.



To apply you dot the liquid blush on to your cheeks then blend out to your temples using the large foam applicators - I do this after I have applied my base.




Both the Vitamin Pink and Coral Tonic blushes have a subtle shimmer to them however it is not over powering , the Vitamin Pink is quite cool in tone and has a silver shimmer to it and because of the blue undertones this gives the shimmer a beautiful duo-chrome effect. The Coral Tonic has a duo-chrome effect with a more golden/pink shimmer to it and it has yellow undertones.
I found that with my skin tone I got more visable results with the Vitamin Pink however you can apply as little or a much as you like to alter the effects. I have combination skin so I have found the wear time of these to be a couple of hours however if you have drier cheeks you may find that they last a little longer.

  6. The applicators on these really intrigue me - I kind of want to stroke them, haha. :) Those two shades you've got look really lovely and summery, perfect for warmer weather.

  7. I'm just obsessed with these, especially the coral - I keep trying to avoid them and not spend money I don't have on them, and then every day someone posts beautiful pics of them, so I don't know how much longer I can hold out!
