Clarins Colours of Brazil

We still actually have our Clarins bronzer from last summer as it's so huge. It hasn't even got a hole in it yet but it's great that we now have a back up for when we do drop it/finish it.

This years bronzer is the same 20g mirrored bronzer in the same mix of shades as last year. A blend of soft taupe and slightly darker warm brown with a matte finish. There is a small square of an apricot with a shimmer finish.

A natural bronzed look can be achieved from this and as it has no shimmer (apart from the tiny square) you're safe to wear it during the day.
This bronzer is a hefty £30 but as I have had mine a year now with no sign of it running out it's a good investment.

The wet and dry eye shadow palette has four colours in a mix of a matte and satin finish.
 Two brown tones and a soft coral along with a stone coloured base shade. Only the lighter brown and the coral have a shimmer, the other two colours are matte.

The fourth stone colour is on the right of the picture but its such a good match to my skin tone you can hardly see it.

The royal blue strip of colour is probably the colour that would attract you to this palette. It is an eyeliner. The colour doesn't translate as bright onto the skin as it is seen in the palette and the finish is a little patchy. This palette is £32.00.

There are six lip balm crayons in the collection. Unlike some of these lip crayon style products which give a stronger colour pay off these ones are a balm. For a balm they actually give a good amount of colour. They are infused with Shea butter so great moisturisation for dry lips.
 Twist up with a good inch of product.


The fifth colour called My pink (not shown in the swatches above) is a transparent colour that works on the PH of your own skin. It will adjust to your own unique shade of pink depending on the PH levels within your lips.
 These are £18.00 each.

We also have from Clarins their summer Shimmer Oil. This is not part of the colours of Brazil collection and is only available online.

 You need to give this a good shake because the oil separates from the colour pigment.
 The fine golden pigments add a shimmer to the oil and also give a subtle gold tint to the skin. This would sit nicely on an already tanned skin and may look a little to golden for a pale skin.
 Scented with mandarin, grapefruit, ylang ylang and tonka bean all in a hazlenut oil base.
 Skin softening vitamin E nourishes skin and would be good on a skin that may be slightly dryer due to sun exposure. This has no sun protection in it so do not use it for tanning purposes. Lovely on the body but too oily and gold for the face.
This is £38.00.

The colours of Brazil collection is available from May 2014 and The shimmer oil available online only from May 2014.
