Clarins Graphic Expression powder

You may have seen this beautiful product popping up recently (here and here), so I thought I would write a full review for you. I received this for Christmas and it is so pretty. I love that Clarins products always come in lovely velvet pouches and the outside of this is like a mirror!
This is the Clarins Graphic Expression powder which is made up of pinks, bronzes and a little bit of glitter. The gold strip of shimmer on this left my skin quite glittery, however thankfully it goes after a couple of uses. Whilst the gold was still coming onto my brush, I found this too glittery to bring onto my temples as a bronzer.
Once the glitter had gone, I started using this more often and love it! It is made up of beautiful bronze and pink tones, which compliment each other and my skin really well. I find this very versatile, as I can use all the shades equally to add some colour all over my face, or focus more on the pinks for a rosy blush on my cheeks. 
I find this starts off light and is very buildable. I like this as I am fairly pale, so don't like something too heavy. This adds a lovely, natural glow to my skin, which I can easily build up if I would like to look more bronzed. This always leaves my skin looking natural and radiant, however much I build it up!
Have you tried this? I would love to know if you have used any similar products which I could try.

  3. This look lovely... would have loved to see some swatches though :)

  4. I have nominated you for the Liebster Award.


  5. Oooo pretty powder! Didn't know Clarins' products come in pouches haha that's a nice touch! I've tried powders or ever shadows that have an excess of glitter on the top too - once it goes though, it often becomes more natural looking :) I've heard good things about the Physician's Formula Happy Booster - might be a good one to try!
