Clarins Éclat Minute Blushes

First time I saw this kind of blush was in a video from Lisa Eldridge and I don't know why but I knew it was something I had to try.

So, I was super excited when I found it at Hondos Center, at a reasonable price as well (22€), and at first I chose a "safe" shade, 01 Vitamin Pink. After wearing for a few days, I knew I had to get the 02 Coral Tonic as well. So here they are!

Vitamin Pink and Coral Tonic

Coral Tonic is peach with a slight coral tint and a subtle sheen, very fresh and will be pefect for spring/summer. Even though I usually don't like peach on me, I find this shade very flattering, probably because it's not too much on the orange side.

Vitamin Pink is my favorite of the two, it's such a dewy rosy pink shade, I love it!

The reason I like them so much is the consistency, it's like a thick lipgloss and all it takes is just a dot on each cheek. The Clarins sales assistant advised me not to move it around on the cheek but to press it lightly with my finger, this way it doesn't disturb the foundation etc.

I also like it because it lasts and that's a first time to me with non powder blushes.

They come in a short lipgloss kind of plastic package, with an a doe foot applicator. That's also a plus because it's easy and safe to carry it along in my travel bag and it takes a really small space.

What I love most is the fresh, slightly glowy finish with a a very fine and subtle shimmer/sheen.

The only downside is that (I think) they are limited edition, so if you get a chance give them a try!

    1. Thanks! I currently wear no other blushes but these two, I just love them!

  3. Such a shame they're LE! Boo...
    I would totally get me some if they were in the permanent collection!

    1. I know, I was seriously considering to get a backup (or two, lol! ) of the pink one, but I just entered a no buy ban for a month...


Thank you!
