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 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 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?

    1. 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˜‰

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. I think this is a perfect look! I am definitely up to try this. You look so pretty!


  10. 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 πŸ˜‰

    You look gorgeous as always hehe. Still waiting for one day to get glammed up by you!!!!!

    With love xx Jenn

    1. 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 πŸ™‚ 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

  11. 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!
