Clarins collections never disappoint, and the Colours of Brazil collection is one I see a variety of skintones falling in love with. The Colours of Brazil collection has actually been out a while now, with my review one of the late ones to the party. 

The star product for me will be no surprise. I am a big fan of Clarins bronzers and the Colours of Brazil Summer Bronzing Compact* is just beautiful. It reminds me a lot of the Splendours collection bronzing compact with the same beautiful colours of brown, terracotta and pale bronzes, incredible packaging and overall, one of my top bronzers, ever. Embossed with a South American inspired motif, the bronzing compact effortlessly creates a natural, sun-kissed glow, can be used on both your face and your decolletage, and is just a dream to blend. I also find it perfect for a natural contour, just such a beautiful bronzer to work with. 

A new release from Clarins, I was really excited about the Clarins Lip Balm Crayon* which is available in six beautiful shades. A gloss-balm stick hybrid, the crayons have a gorgeous creamy, firm texture which works to provide sheer colour whilst hydrating like a lip balm, with the comfort of a lipstick and shine of a gloss. There's delicious Mango, Apricot and Shea Butters, which not only create a beautiful and subtle scent, but work as a powerful trio to deeply moisturise and hydrate. Of the six shades available, which cover beautiful pinks, nudes, berries and classic peaches and reds, I've been trying 03 Tender Coral. A lovely shade, it's perfect for any occasion and provides a stunning golden coral shade.

A real star of the collection is the new Clarins Truly Waterproof Mascara*, which is available in two shades; Black and an online exclusive shadeCuraçao. Described as an ultra water-resistant mascara that works to provide double the volume and lengthening effect of other mascaras, with intense colour and a 12-hour non-stop waterproof hold. A formula including Bitter Orange Tree Wax and Squalane from Olive, works to pamper and protect your lashes from the free-radicals, whilst multi-tasking as a lash-nourishing conditioner. With a slim, precise wand and bristles, it's easy to grab even the tiniest of lashes, creating volume from root to tip with a gorgeous opaque colour, making your lashes look more intense yet chic and natural at the same time. A high-end mascara worth the splurge. 

A beautiful collection, as always. Like all Clarins collections, a lot of the products are limited edition, with limited stock on all sites, so I'd recommending snapping them up quick!
