Clarins Instant Light Blush in 01 Vitamin Pink - Review

I recently watched a newly uploaded YouTube video by Lisa Eldridge. Lisa created a look based on make up she has done for Clemence Poesy. I really liked the blush she used, it was a new release from Clarins. I made a note to check them out next time I was at Myer.

In Lisa's video she used 02 Coral Tonic. When swatching I decided to purchase 01 Vitamin Pink. There is also a third shade which is a browny colour, which personally I am not interested in (I am a pink girl :)).

When I first applied this blush I applied far too much, I looked a little clown like. I discovered that this liquid/cream blush is highly pigmented. Only a small amount is needed to be applied and blended into the cheek area. I did find that it does settle into the skin after around 10 minutes and doesn't look as full on as when first applied. You are definitely able to layer this product.  

This blush does have a lot of shimmer in it so it is like a highlighter too. I love a multi use product :). I was impressed by how well it lasted and how natural it looked on the skin once blended. I would say it lasted all day on my face giving me a nice healthy glow.

The packaging is nice, to me it looks a little like a mini lip gloss. It has a large doe foot applicator making it easy to apply. I do think though once there isn't much product left that the packaging may be a little difficult, but we'll see. 

Heavy swatch on left, blended swatch on right.

These retail for $47.00 each for 7ml of product. The display said that they were limited edition so head to your nearest stockist soon. I know I will be, I think I want to pick up 02 Coral Tonic too!

  1. Do you sometimes feel like you're getting ripped off on cosmetics? I feel especially so after coming back from the states late last year. :(
