I don’t know about you. But I’m really struggling to feel like it’s summer at the moment. With the endless rain and grey skies, you could be mistaken for thinking we were in the middle of October, rather than the beginning of August. But honestly, I couldn’t be happier to be moving towards the autumn season. While I do love summer, I love autumn more. I’m craving boots and chunky knit jumpers. And the new Clarins Graphik Autumn 17 Collection is giving me all the autumn feels. The collection is all about enhancing the eyes with shimmery, magnetic hues and graphic lines. While the lips are dressed with a pink glow.
Ombre Matte in Midnight Blue £19.00
So let’s start with the boldest piece from this collection. With its innovative cream to powder formula, this eyeshadow offers the comfort and smoothing effect of a cream. But with the fine quality and hold of a powder. It applies on so smooth and so creamily but then dries down to a perfect powder finish that doesn’t budge. And just look at that colour! In the most beautiful rich iridescent midnight blue shade, this colour is perfect for creating a sultry smokey eye look.
Graphik Ink Liner in Intense Black £21.00
To accompany the ombre matte shadow in that gorgeous blue colour is this new Gaphik Ink Linker. Which is a felt tip, tapered pen to precisely and flawlessly line the eye with a jolt of intense carbon pigment. I love that this line is so easy to use and wears really well throughout the day.
Joli Rouge in Deep Reed and Guava £20.00 each
Moving onto lips and I’m not sure anything says autumn more to me than a red lip. And both of these colours are the perfect addition to your autumn/winter makeup bag. It’s truly time to ditch the nudes and summer tones and go for something a little deeper and richer on the lips. The formula of these lipsticks is fab too. They’re incredibly moisturising with a soft satin finish and a radiant slick of colour that lasts throughout the day.
Lipliner Pencil in Red £17.50
And finally, we have a new lipliner shade! As this is packed full of Jojoba Oil, it’s so smooth to apply, allowing for a flawless application without dragging or pulling on the skin. And as the tip is firm but smooth, it’s ideal to line, contour or prep your lips ready for lipstick.
