Clarins Autumn Make Up Collection 2015 |

Although I am still clutching onto what's left of the Summer, I can't help but get excited when I hear of the autumn collections and new releases. If you've been reading my blog lately, then it'll come as no surprise that Clarins is a beloved brand of mine and the Aquatic Summer collection has a special place in my heart, so when I heard that their Autumn make up range was being released on August 2nd, I knew I had to snap it up quick. If you're after a collection that can be worn both day and night, consisting of dark, muted eyeshadows and rich, moisturising lipsticks, then you've struck gold. 
Clarins Crayon Kohl Pencil - True Violet* | £17 | Link | You're probably thinking 'a purple eyeliner, what can I do with that?' But hear me out on this one as it's a game changer. True violet, a metallic purple with a blue undertone glides on softly, can be blended easily using the brush provided and has a long lasting formula that won't budge for hours. As someone who never swayed from the traditional black eyeliner, I am now a changed woman, wearing this purple eyeliner on my lower lash line daily to create a soft smokey look that lasts all day.

Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick - Tawny Rose/Red Paprika* | £19.50 each | Link | Next up is two autumnal appropriate lipstick shades. Tawny Rose, a muted rose/nude hybrid that fits under the cliché description of 'your lips but better', whilst Red Paprika is a burnt orange, red with a sheer finish that makes it fitting for everyday use. The lightweight formula sits comfortably on the lips due to plant waxes, whilst Nutri-Youth complex hydrates and vitamin e protects. Despite the formulas being comfortable to wear with intense, rich colour that can be sheered out or built up, I can't ever seem to get along with the slanted applicators as I find it difficult to get an even coverage. If you're after a new range of lipsticks that have nourishing formulas and can be worn as easily as lip balms, then I would thoroughly recommend these because I know that I need and will find a way for these lipsticks to work on me.  

Clarins Ombre Matte - Carbon/Heather* | £19 each | Link | Two products I had high hopes for were the Ombre Matte eyeshadows and I'm glad to say they didn't disappoint. With a cream to powder formula that sits comfortably on the eye and can be blended with ease, both of these shades are fool proof. Heather, a light grey taupe looks perfect paired with Carbon, a black with silver particles. I've never been a massive fan of black eyeshadow, as I found that they often make my eyes appear smaller, however due to the slight shimmer in the formula the black looks softer on the eye. If you're looking for a new formula of eyeshadows that are highly pigmented, quick to apply and give an effortless finish every time, then the Ombre Mattes have your back.

Clarins Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown* | £17 | Link | I think we need to take a moment to appreciate the spoolie on this pencil, as I personally think all pencils should come with a spoolie this size. Although this product is pretty self explanatory, I'd like to say that this is one of the best eyebrow products I have used and I've tried a lot. Despite not being the best at precise application if the pencil isn't sharpened, I do find that the formula is soft in texture, making it easy to fill the eyebrows one stroke at a time. What sold me on the pencil is the longevity because it lasts all day long, something that is rare when it comes to an eyebrow product.  

What products have you got your eye on from the Clarins Autumn make up range?
