Clarins Spring 2012 Collection: Colour Breeze


Clarins Spring 2012 Collection: Colour Breeze

It’s like the first signs of spring, a certain poetic grace and a hint of casualness. It’s the sheer lightness of a high-shine lip gloss, exquisitely smooth powders, fresh and truly unique textures; tender yet vibrant shades. It’s a bright, luminous complexion, beautifully enhanced cheek bones, ultra-shiny lips and naturally unsettling eyes.

If it’s heavier eye makeup, I typically use a cleansing oil (which one simply depends on what I have on hand or what I’m testing, but my default is shu uemura’s). If it’s a lot of long-wearing eye makeup, I will also use a separate eye makeup remover after I’ve done my face with a product like Lancome Bi-Facil. For lighter makeup, a lot of cleansers breakdown the majority of the product, and then I’ll use a toner afterward to ensure the rest is off (as well as around the edges of my face).

Becca Tangerine Dream Nail Lacquer ($15.00 for 0.51 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright sunset coral.” It originally debuted in last summer’s Halcylon Days collection (yes, really, I’m that behind!). It’s still available within a very limited color range of polishes (six, to be exact).

It’s mostly orange, but there’s a tinge of coral to it.  MAC Oriele Orange is more orange, deeper. China Glaze Life Preserver is darker, redder. SpaRitual Love & Happiness is redder. China Glaze High Hopes is more coral, redder.

The color applied evenly and easily without streaking or bubbling, and Tangerine Dream was opaque in two coats (almost one coat–I did just one coat on the pinky so you could see; OK, more because I forgot!). When I tested out the wear of this particular shade (first Becca polish for me!), it wore really well. I will caution you that I can’t think of a brand of polish that does chip on me; they all wear to varying degrees of tip wear. I had minor tip wear after seven days but no other issues. It wasn’t too thick or thin and flowed well across the nail. A nice touch is that the bottle cap is rubberized, so it’s easy to grip and open.
