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!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I think I could string that eyeshadow palette on a gold chain and wear it as necklace…whoa, that’s pretty.

  • yelena

    wow that collector’s edition indian palette looks absolutely gorgeous! i didnt even know clarins had a make up line I always saw only my mom buy skin care so i never paid any attention to it. πŸ™‚ are u going to be posting swatches and reviews?

  • Ruth

    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.

  • kimkats

    Ooooooo…. me wanty the palette and the coral lip balm! DANG – those are gorg! Can’t WAIT to see the swatches of it all!

    Ooooo Muse – u so bad for my wallet! πŸ˜€

  • Cj

    I cried at color of a lipstick πŸ™ I probably won’t be able to pull those off am I?

    • the Muse

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

      • Cj

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

          • Tammie

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

  • Kim

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

    • Michelle

      Yes…it looked like Avon tried to pull off a dupe there πŸ™‚

  • 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!

  • Nikki

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

  • 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!
