Natural Autumn Make up

If you follow us (which you should) you already know that we are a tiny bit addicted to Clarins. We love their approach to beauty and their sublime yet natural shades. So, before everyone gets crazy about Christmas special editions, let’s take a moment to admire their beautiful Autumn collection. As soon as I saw that eye shadow I knew I had to have it. I know, I know, I said I would never buy any new eye shadow again but this one is the perfect brownish / taupe / greyish colour. It really is. And you apply it with your finger. Simple as that! It’s a cream to powder texture that looks beautifully matte and delightfully subtle. So, it has it all: quick application, perfect colour and dreamy texture. It’s the shade Rosewood and it’s been my go to eye shadow this month.

And talking about natural and appealing shades, I can’t recommend you the Rouge Eclat lipstick enough. We got it in Strawberry sorbet, which far from being a bright Summer pink as the name would suggest, it’s the most amazing barely there natural shade. (And yes, you got it right: we both got it) But that beautiful colour is not its only virtue: it claims to protect lips against dehydration and boosts collagen, it has Vitamin E that protects against free radicals and 100% plant waxes which provide instant comfort. Well, all those words mean that it’s supposed to be anti-aging. I will tell you if it is in a couple of years, but it sure feels great when you apply it and it’s silky but not sticky. It’s fantastic. I’m thinking about getting it in Passion Red for Christmas…
