There is a rare brand that doesn’t have marine-themed collection, designed specifically for summer. What is a better timing for deep navy blue eyeshadows and marine green liners? Or even forest green mascaras with pearlescent foundation bases? All that you can find in the most recent Clarins Aquatic Treasures for Summer 2015 Collection.
A luminous complexion, iridescent eyes and natural-looking lips with a hint of glossy colour… This summer, awaken the aquatic nymph within you!
The luminous and radiant skin effect that Clarins promises us can be achieved with two makeup bases, that are limited edition items for this summer. Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base (£26.50 or €29.90 each) comes in two limited edition shades – 04 Apricot (left) and 05 Golden Caramel (right). These bases are supposed to hydrate the skin and slightly reduce any redness. Due to high amount of radiant pigments in the consistency these bases are able to optically correct imperfections.
The center piece of the collection, its ultimate star, is a bronzer. Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact (£30.00 or €44.50) is a huge bronzer that consists of four sectors of different bronzing shades and comes with a huge inner mirror. This bronzer protects the skin from pollution and harmful effects and maintains your skin moisturized. This bronzer is said to have luminous finish due to radiant particles in its texture.
This collection also features three limited edition sparkling shades of the cream-to-powder eyeshadows. Clarins Iridescent Shadow (£19.00 or €22.00) comes in three beautiful shimmery shades: 01 Aquatic Rose (left), 02 Aquatic Green (middle) and 03 Aquatic Grey (right). These shades are soft and blendable and can beautifully enhance your eyes.
This smooth transition to green is reflected in other eye makeup products of this collection as well. As the summer makeup is intended to be worn on the beach and at the sea Clarins introduced the waterproof mascara and eye pencils to secure hour makeup even under water. Clarins Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil (£17.00 or €16.50) is presented in limited edition 05 Aquatic Green and permanent 01 Intense Black shades. This eyeliner is highly water-resistant and is very long-wearing. It can be both applied as a fine line along the base of the lashes or intensely along the inner eye line. Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara (£21.50 or €26.00) was designed in a limited edition shade 03 Aquatic Green in addition to the permanent 01 Intense Black.
Finally, Clarins also suggests us to get this gloss ‘wet-look’ effect for the lips with the permanent Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector (£18.00 or €19.00) that are ideal at moisturizing your lips leaving them soft and plump.
To my mind, this collections is very solid and well-organazied. There is nothing unnecessary in it and everything seems very theme appropriate. I really like the blue-ish green theme coloring along with shimmery beige accents that are perfect for the real summer feeling.
