I can’t believe December is finally here! With Christmas (& 2019!) right around the corner, I wanted to share a fun sparkling holiday look I created with Clarins’ limited edition Shine & Shimmer collection. It includes a lip comfort oil in “09 red berry glam,” a gold mascara top coat, and an illuminating sculpting powder. This dazzling trio delivers the perfect dusting of glitter for your cheeks, eyes, and lips this holiday season!
For some years now, I’ve been a fan of Clarins’ lip comfort oil because it gives just the right amount of shine without drying my lips. The one in this limited edition collection is a sheer red tint with subtle gold shimmer – the perfect formula for an irresistible kiss under the mistletoe! 😉 It is super versatile – I’ve even worn it to the gym before to keep my lips hydrated in the mornings. For an extra boost of red or pink, I occasionally like to switch it up with my favorite lip color underneath. Otherwise, it works wonderfully on its own as a lip gloss. Unlike other lip glosses, this one isn’t overly sticky, which is a big plus in my book.
While I love using different eye shadow colors and lippies depending on the occasion, this was my first time experimenting with gold mascara! Since I don’t like wearing fake lashes, I definitely apply several coats of mascara to bring out the volume and length of my natural lashes. This holiday, I’m dressing up the tips with Clarins’ gold mascara top coat. Coupled with my everyday mascara, I love how this top coat gives my eyes that extra gold sparkle.
A quality highlighter is a necessity for me as it makes such a difference in my makeup routine. I have been using Clarins’ Illuminating Sculpting Powder to accentuate my cheekbones, nose bridge, brow bone areas, and décolleté. The extra shimmer really makes my face more feminine & defined. I am pleasantly surprised at how pigmented this Clarins highlighter is; it sits well on the skin and keeps me glowing from day to night, as I bounce from one holiday gathering to the next!
Have you experimented with a fun sparkling makeup look this holiday season yet?
These products seem great! I love Clarins. I need some new sparkly makeup for Christmas so I may just have to buy these.
These would be perfect for you then, Tasha! Thanks for stopping by! xo
Oh, I love Clarins! I have to try this!

WOW, amazing! Love these pictures and that gold mascara looks so cool!
Thanks Carolyn! I think it’s rad too! Great way to add a touch of sparkle to an everyday look, without going overboard.
Oohhh what a fun and festive look for the holidays. I’ll have to try recreating this with these Clarins products 😍 Thanks did sharing.

I have heard a lot about Clarins lip comfort oil. I always wanted to try this and been looking for this one for the past 2 weeks.
It is soooo good! I have the lip comfort oil in several shades. I definitely recommend giving this one a try – it’s perfect for the holiday season 🙂
This looks and sounds great. I am more concerned with my lips now that I used to be. So important to have this lip comfort oil.
I am with you! Living in the desert, my lips are always dry if I don’t take good care of them. The lip comfort oil makes it so easy for me!
I love it! Your makeup looks so good here! I think I need all these products!
Thanks gorgeous! XO
I LOVE Clarins products! Your makeup is gorgeous!
Thank you Deborah!
Absolutley loved this! Love the shimmer of the holiday hues on my face!
Thanks beauty! I do, too! Can never go wrong with a bit of shimmer this time of year 😉
Oh Clarins has sparkly makeup?! I love the look, it’s the perfect holiday glam!
that is such a gorgeous lip color! thanks for sharing, babe! xoxo
Thanks darling! I love how versatile it is. Even though it’s a bit tinted red with gold glitter, it’s wearable everyday!
I don’t have that much shimmery / sparkly make-up but this lip shimmer looks so amazing! I need to try this! Perfect for all the those holiday parties!
It is amazing! Shimmer is a must for holiday parties this year.
Oh my girl you are absolutely gorgeous and your makeup looks amazing! These products are awesome!
Aww thank you Danielle! You’re the sweetest! xo

Thank you Christine, I’m glad you like it! I love the highlighter and lip oil – my faves from the set for sure. The gold mascara is fun for the holidays and new year parties but I’m not so sure I’d wear it on an everyday basis the way I would the highlighter and lip oil 😉
I cannot get over your magnificent look 🙂 it’s perfect for holidays!
Thank you Mariann! xo
All of these glossy and shimmery items are perfect for creating pretty holiday looks!! They look even better when you applied them! I’m so interested in the gold mascara- never seen anything like it!
Thank you Samantha! You’re so sweet. You’d rock the gold mascara too. It’s new to me too!
I have not tried Clarins before but your post is indeed coaxing me enough to have a try. 🙂
Haha you won’t regret it! 😉
I keep staring at your skin. you have such nice skin! love this whole look
Aw thank you girl! xx
Your skin is amazing! I love that lip color too!
that highlighter is beautiful! I love the sparkle! I need to try Clarins 🙂
I am in love with the highlighter too! So shimmery and perfect for this time of year 🙂
I love this look! The gold mascara adds an extra edge and definitely brings out your natural lashes. I’m not a fan of false lashes either, so I might have to give this one a try. Thank you for sharing, Sharon!

I am such a fan of Clarins! I love your make up here hun, you look beautiful!!
So happy to hear you’re a fan too! Thank you Jessi!
Clarins has such beautiful packaging!!!! I love that their limited holiday edition lip oil has a little tint of glitter and color to give a little extra oomf! I’m always a huge fan of subtle lip products that are super hydrating. That highlighter though!!! G.L.O.W. I actually just broke and ran out of my favorite go-to highlighter (Becca Champagne Pop) and have been on the hunt to try something new!! I think the Clarins’ Illuminating Sculpting Powder may be my next choice 😉
You look gorgeous as always hehe. Still waiting for one day to get glammed up by you!!!!!
With love xx Jenn
They definitely do have beautiful packaging! Their holiday lip oil is all I use now if I want just a bit of shine without drying my lips 🙂 Definitely recommend it! OMG my favorite highlighter ever is also Becca’s champagne pop! But this one is pretty good too. I’m also hitting the pan of my Becca highlighter so this one came at a perfect time really. If you try it, I’d love to hear your thoughts! And, I’ll be happy to glam ya up next time I see you <3 xoxoxo
I’m such a huge fan of this brand, and this looks like another must-try for me. Thanks for sharing dear!

Glad to hear, Jess! Hope your Christmas was amazing! xoxo
Your skin and make up looks amazing. I have used Clarins skin care products but never their make up surprisingly. Love the glimmery eye shadow and lip gloss! Need to try it sometime! Happy holidays!
Yeah, I started off using their skin care products and then transitioned over to trying their makeup too. No regrets! 😉 Happy Holidays! xx
Awww I absolutely love your holiday makeup look with Clarins! It’s so neat that they’re coming out with makeup too as I’ve enjoyed using their skincare line. I use the lip oil from Clarins as well and love how nourishing and hydrating it feels on my lips!
