The slow pace

Rosy cheeks and red lips

Chocolate and Clarins are my biggest addictions, so when I saw that the Sephora next to my mum’s house was having a clearance I run. Fast. I’ve had my eye in these two items for a while. Did I need them? No. That’s why I only got them when the price was pretty reduced.

I chose the Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in the shade Soft Peach. While the name suggests coral undertones and reminds you of a Summery colour, the truth is quite different. It’s a sheer pink that gives you subtle healthy rosy cheeks, which in my opinion is the epitome of Wintery makeup. This small blush palette has different shades that combine perfectly to achieve a really natural yet radiant result.

The lipstick it’s not so natural. In fact it’s a pretty bright red. It’s from the Clarins’ Rouge Eclat collection, which we discovered last Autumn. If you read this post, you’ll now that the shade Strawberry sorbet has become our absolute favourite. It’s ridiculously nourishing and  looks beautiful on the lips. Well, back then I spotted the shade Red Fuchsia and I loved it but decided not to buy it. Now I’m very happy with my purchase: it’s the perfect mix between red and burgundy. Again, the name it’s not very accurate…

These two products are my Winter staples. I just add this CC Cream, YSL Touch Éclat and a good layer of Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes mascara to my the mix and I’m ready to face these icy temperatures!
