Clarins Instant Sun Light Makeup Collection features beautiful, multi-use products in flattering, easy-to- wear shades that are perfect for summer. I think this is one of the prettiest S/S 2010 makeup collections I've tried, as a matter of fact.
Let's begin with the Eye Quartet and Liner Palette, pictured left.
The four eye shadow shades range from a pretty, golden beige, which was perfect for highlighting and using as a base for others colors, to a luscious brown with bronze shimmer. There's also a deep brown gel liner, perfect for creating a lighter smoky eye and overall lighter eye look for summer. The compact is beautifully embossed with a sun-like logo and the case is well constructed and comes with a mini duster jacket.
There are two small brushes included that allowed me to easily apply the shades when on the go, and are high quality enough that you can use them when you are home as well.
Instant Smooth Compact Highlighter
This is a creamy, smooth shimmery highlighter that I loved using on my cheekbones, eyes and even lips when I just needed a touch of color and glow. I used the bronze shade. The shimmer is significant but not over the top, and the formula is non-drying. Again, it's in a beautiful case with a lot of product that will take you all the way through the summer to use, since just a few light touches are needed with each application.
Instant Sunlight Click and Gloss
I love this lip gloss! I used the Cinnamon shade (third from the left) and fell in love with it's super light and glossy finish. Cinnamon is a goof proof shimmery brown that can be used over lipstick or on bare lips for that "your lips but better" look. It has great staying power and it extremely moisturizing. - RLB
