A Sparkling Holiday Look with Clarins

***Special thanks to Clarins for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

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! πŸ˜‰ 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 volume and length in 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 dΓ©colletΓ©. 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?

      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!

      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 πŸ˜‰

    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!
