Summer Makeup Trendspotting 2010: Clarin’s Instant Sun Light

If sun kissed shades of cinnamon, ginger, cocoa, caramel and vanilla float your makeup boat, please allow me to introduce Clarin’s Instant Sun Light summer collection.

This radiant summer collection relies on the subtle layering of bronzer to create a complexion that appears luminous and healthy. Sheer peach is used to sculpt the cheekbones, while lips are plump with a  juicy slick of a flirtatious coral tone gloss. Vivid gold and bronze, with a sweep of vivid purple is used to pop the peepers!

Meet the collection:

  • Eye Quartet & Liner Palette: Featuring a metallic nutmeg eyeliner, four eye shadows in shimmery ginger, iridescent cinnamon, sparkling paprika and a matte cocoa, a double-ended brush and flock eyeshadow applicator and a mini eyeliner brush. The shadows are embossed with a gold star anise
  • Instant Smooth Compact Highlighter: Two complexion highlighters in Natural, a sheer, dewy peach and Bronze, a vibrant golden caramel. Housed in Clarins’ signature oval compact, the highlighter can be used on the skin, eyes and cheeks
  • Instant Sun Light Click & Gloss SPF6: A vanilla and raspberry-scented lip gloss housed in a sleek pen. Available in three iridescent shades: Vanilla, Coral and Cinnamon
  • Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm: Brand new lip formulas containing high-tech polymers, pro-ceramides and lip-smoothing and line-filling ingredients. Comes in three shades: Crystal Coral, Crystal Red and Crystal, a natural pink
  • Wonder Violet Wonder Waterproof Mascara: A water-resistant, intense violet mascara designed to add volume, length and curl to the lashes
