Clarins Enchanted Collection Summer 2012

Is there any time I’m not enchanted by Clarins? Clarins Enchanted is a fitting name for the Summer 2012 Collection if ever there was one don’t you agree?

Much to my delight I share news with you today that finally after two seasons of seeing them released in the UK, Clarins has brought their Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm to the US market.

I’m so excited and I know many of you will be too. Beauty junkies have been waiting for this for a while. Clarins has consecutively included the balms in at least two Summer Collections launched in the UK but they never made it to our market for some reason.

This year, Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm launches in an array of colors with the Clarins Enchanted Collection for Summer 2012.

Happy days!

    that eyeshadow pallet is truely drool worthy! the patterning on the case that extends over to the shadows is unbelievably stunning. I think that it may have to go home with me.


  • 4/5/12 10:50 kimkats:

    Ooooo Muse – u so bad for my wallet! 😀


    • 4/5/12 10:52 the Muse:

      who me? naaaaaaaa ;D


  • 4/5/12 10:54 Cj:

    I cried at color of a lipstick :( I probably won’t be able to pull those off am I?


    • 4/5/12 10:56 the Muse:

      sure you can! they are like the maybelline pop collection from last year, clear balms, not much color ;-D!!!!!!!!! moisturizing/hydrating


      • 4/5/12 11:01 Cj:

        Oh .. YAY! Lol I thought they were gonna be like lipstick pigmentation. Now I want them all! Even the purple rofl 😀


        • 4/5/12 11:05 the Muse:

          yeah ;-D!!!!!!!!!!!! they are gel-like balms ;-D


          • 4/5/12 15:20 Tammie:

            It looks like they have a more opaque core in the picture, what do you think? I think that might be fun~

  • 4/5/12 11:04 Melanie:

    Is that a bright teal mascara? Whoa!


  • 4/5/12 11:05 Kim:

    The lipsticks remind me of the new Avon ones with the color core and clear balm.


    • 4/5/12 11:37 Michelle:

      Yes…it looked like Avon tried to pull off a dupe there :)


  • 4/5/12 11:42 Michelle:

    What can I say….the violet kohl eyeliner, the Indian-inspired palette….WANT!!! My hubby is South Asian so I just adore all of the bright colors from his part of the world. You can get kohl eyeliner real cheap in Pakistan but it comes in just one color–black.

    Also, the model’s eyeliner look is great. The color is really pretty but it’s not too overdone. Great job, Clarins!


  • 4/5/12 14:33 Nikki:

    Oh my goodness that eyeshadow pallet is so pretty!!! I want it!


  • 4/5/12 15:20 Tammie:

    Very interested in the crystal lip balms 😀


  • 4/5/12 17:41 Southern Gorgeous:

    Woah. I’m definitely gaga for those crystal lippies, but the Tri Sigma inside me is dying for the purple in the palette!


  • 4/5/12 18:18 dina:

    gorgeous!!! the crystal balms and palette are calling *sigh*


  • 4/5/12 20:39 Cynthia:

    definitely saving up for the palette!
