My Clarins Barocco Christmas Look

.

.

This Christmas, I’m going to create a chic look using Limited Edition Clarins Barocco Christmas Make-up Collection that comprises of Eye Colour Trio, Face Palette, Rouge Prodige and Shimmering Gold Powder.

I did a trial and I actually like what I have created, something natural and subtle. It is a lot different from the model (with smoky eyes) featured on this collection who looks vogue and sexy.

Makeup is fun! You can create your ‘own’ look using the same makeup collection too! Set your own creative limits!

.

BAROCCO Eye Colour Trio – S$64

Contents : 1.5g – 0.05oz.

With this trio shades, I can create a “smoky” effect and different looks for both day and night. I can combine, layer or blend together to suit my mood.

I especially like the ultra-fine, easy-to-apply texture and the bronze golden shade. This Eye Colour Trio contains two essential accessories for impeccable eye make-up: a large mirror and a double-tipped foam applicator, one to shade and blend, the other shaped for more precise application on the eye contour and eyelid crease.

.

BAROCCO Face Palette – S$64

Contents : 13g – 0.45oz.

This BAROCCO Face Palette comes in a combination of two shades, with a scroll motif in pinky-peach on a sandy-beige background that leaves a natural radiance pink on my skin. Love the soft and fine texture!

.

BAROCCO Rouge Prodige – S$35

Contents : 3g – 0.1oz.

This BAROCCO Rouge Prodige lipstick comes in one shade (No.130 Barocco). I actually like the intense deep colour and it’s quite long lasting too.

.

BAROCCO Shimmering Gold Powder – S$70

For Face and Decollete

Contents : 36g – 1.2oz.

These delicate little nuggets that dusted with golden pearl beautifully enhance my neck and arms with sparkling reflections as the powder catches the light. Love the mini black soft puff and the light fine golden powder. A must-have for Christmas bash!

BAROCCO

Clarins Christmas Sensual Make-up Collection

For this 2010 festive season, Clarins exclusively creates BAROCCO, a sensual and sumptuous limited edition make-up collection that is inspired from the flamboyant Baroque universe influenced with rich golds, emblematic scrolls and sensual style.

The four limited edition creations provide rich colours and finest textures that are combined with the most elegant packaging.

The complexion is pale and lightly powdered, the body is adorned with touches of sparkling gold powder. The eyes smoulder with a “smoky look” and a modern play on contrasts, colours and light. Lips are veiled in a vibrant, intense black tulip lipstick, the ultimate symbol of absolute femininity.

Clarins Limited Edition BAROCCO Christmas Make-up Collection will be launched on 15 November 2010 and it will be available at all Clarins outlets in Singapore.

.

The black scroll on a gold background is the festive emblem of the collection and embellishes all items with a decoration inspired by the delicate work of the silversmith. With their subtle gold and intense black, they are transformed into beautiful, refined objects that resemble precious jewels.

.

BAROCCO Face Palette – S$64

Contents : 13g – 0.45oz.

This BAROCCO Face Palette comes in a combination of two shades, with a scroll motif in pinky-peach on a sandy-beige background, is perfect for illuminating the face or adding matte touches to the complexion. This compact powder is incredibly soft and light to the touch.

It is presented in an exquisite black laquered case with light gold lid and black scroll decoration that slips inside a red velvet purse.

This face palette leaves a natural radiance pink on my skin.

.

BAROCCO Shimmering Gold Powder – S$70

For Face and Decollete

In this elegant black and gold powder box that is decorated with a scroll, you can find delicate little nuggets dusted with golden pearl, protected by a beautiful black powder puff.

My First Exclusive Clarins SkinTime 30 Session

.

Last Saturday, I was glad to be invited to the exclusive Clarins 3-hour special event @ Tangs Orchard and at the same time to experience my first Clarins SkinTime 30 session.

In this one-to-one complimentary SkinTime 30 session, a Clarins beauty specialist will be assigned to do a skin analysis on my skin, I will learn the skincare regime using Clarins products, the correct method to apply different skincare products and most importantly to learn the secrets to achieve a V-shape facial contours using the Auto Lifting® method. Plus, a free supply of samples customized to my skin after the session. Clarins is the only brand in Singapore to do this! And all is free of charge!

You can also opt for the Skintime 15 which means a 15-minute session on your forearm to test the products.

I realized I have this stupid reindeer red nose before the session started. :(

.

So here’s my ‘BEFORE’ photo. Yes, I’m going to remove my makeup and review my naked face.

.

Me, Sharon and 3 beauty bloggers were experiencing the SkinTime 30 at the same time.

.

Before the session started, the beauty specialist will use one of these treatment fragrances to ‘cleanse’ their hands.

.

My first product : Instant Eye Make-up Remover. Contains oil and water that effectively help to remove stubborn makeup and it is very suitable for sensitive eyes.

The Clarins Specialist pressed 2 cotton pads that were soaked with Instant Eye Make-up Remover and covered each soaked pad on each of my eyes. By gently pressing on the eye areas for about 10-20 seconds will help to melt the makeup and thereby allow easy removal of the makeup later.

Clarins believes not to rub the delicate eye areas with the cotton pads as this will cause more fine lines and wrinkles on the delicate eye areas. Oops! No more rough hands k!

.

My second product : One-Step Facial Cleanser. This 3-in-1 cleanser is actually a makeup remover, cleanser cum toner.

After removing the makeup on the eye areas, the beauty specialist cleansed the rest of my face using the One-Step Facial Cleanser.

Review – NEW Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Lipo-drain Serum

.

.

A few weeks ago, I was delighted to receive a complimentary NEW Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Lipo-drain Serum (S$98) and thanks to Jasmine from Clarins Singapore.

For decades, Clarins has been renowned for their reshaping and toning body products. Clarins has successfully built a remarkable reputation around the world with the efficacy from their body products. No advertisement is even required and the products will just sell themselves.

.

Product Profile

In 1998, Clarins has launched its first Shaping Facial Lift. It is designed to address a major beauty concern of Asian women: to refine the face. It is developed with a unique treatment thanks to the comments of Asian women who share their major beauty concern “a more refined facial contour” with Clarins beauty therapists during treatments at Institut Clarins in Paris.

In 2010, Clarins developed the NEW Shaping Facial Lift Lipo-drain Serum (S$98) that is exclusively designed for Asian women and tested by them. The NEW Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Lipo-drain Serum has been enriched and reformulated with the most recent discoveries from Clarins Research. This advanced beauty essential for the face, protected by two international patents, to be used before any other product to ensure a perfectly refined facial silhouette.

So when Clarins recently launched their NEW Shaping Facial Lift Lipo-drain Serum in Singapore in July 2010, I was in fact very curious to know if this product will be as promising as their body counterparts.

NEW! Clarins Hydra-Luminous Flawless Powder Foundation SPF 20 PA++

Flawless Powder Foundation Moist & 3D Radiance Effect

Hydra-Luminous Powder Foundation SPF 20 PA++, launched in September 2010, is the latest foundation from Clarins.

It is specially designed for Asian women that provides a flawless, radiance, even complexion while preserving the soft, supple qualities of the skin. It contains a concentrate of plant essences such as Rosemary, Camomile and Ginkgo Biloba that help to ensure skin stays fresh, hydrate, radiant and a feeling of last-lasting comfort.

With “3D Luminance” pigment, natural light is diffused and face is more sculpted, reshaped and refined.

.

Hydra-Luminous Flawless Powder Foundation SPF 20 PA++ comes in separate Case (S$20) and Refill (S$55).

.

.

I have taken shade color (02-IIP) which a shade lighter than my skin tone and my skin looks slightly fairer now. A shade darker will be more ideal actually. I like the melting texture which is ultra soft and fine.

.

It glides over my skin effortlessly and all I need is 5 minutes for my whole face. Although it seems matt on my skin but my skin does feel moisture all day long. And it also protects my skin from sun damage with SPF 20 PA++, triple anti-free radical, anti-pollution and anti-UV protection.

.

I have almost completed my “Clarins Look” and what I need now is Rouge Prodige Lipstick. In this photo, I’m wearing Clarins Instant Blush on my lip.

Review – Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40

..

To me, sun protection is always the most important skin care regimen and is the first line of defense against skin aging. As I truly understand that diligent use of a sunscreen allows some repair as well as protection from further sun damage. Even though the sheer foundation I’ve used provides SPF 30 but that doesn’t stop me from using a sunscreen for double protection.

More than six months ago, I’ve decided to stop wearing foundation as I feel that it makes my skin looking cakey and ‘make-up’. Maybe you can blame it on the foundation or maybe is the way I apply it. And moreover, I aim to create a more natural-looking skin too. Therefore, I began looking around for a well-formulated tinted sunscreen that not only can provide good sun protection but also can superficially help to even up my skin tone without looking ‘make-up’. Finally I’ve found Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40.
