Clarins Splendours Summer Bronzing Compact

Clarins Splendours Summer Bronzing Compact review swatch photo

The last few days I've stopped wearing blusher and have been opting towards the natural bronzed look. I've been obsessed with the Clarins Splendours Limited Edition Summer Bronzing Compact. It's a beautiful warm toned terracotta broner. Rich in pigment it gives the face a flawless natural sun kissed glow. It's gorgeously soft and so buttery. The shade compliments my natural skintone giving a subtle "inner glow" type bronze to the face. Applied with a taped blush brush to my cheeks, chin and temples it just gives the perfect natural/subtle bronzed look. The packaging and print is just something else. An absolutely stunning South American/Aztec style print that is almost a little too nice to actually use. But alas, I'm glad I got my brush in there and used it as I think I've found something that definitely works for me. I don't tend to wear bronzer at all let alone on its own without a blush but I like how it gives a sculpted natural look to my face. Very Cara Delevinge! Like with all the Clarins Limited Edition Splendours I highly, highly recommend this product. It should be on the counters right now for around the £30 mark. While pricey, I don't think it's that bad for a limited edition product, but probably a bit expensive for some! Collectors of beautiful makeup, this is a must have!

  4. This is lovely! Some bronzers looks really weird on me. The pattern of this product is so cool I don't think I'd be able to use it just so it doesn't get ruined, hah! <3

  13. It is such an intricate pattern - I love it! Also, you really make it work in place of a blusher, so I just may have to buy it and try it out myself.

  16. If you're venturing into the world of 'bronzed' faces without blusher, I would also highly recommend Stila bronzer, compliments natural bone structure perfectly :) Unlike you, I'm beginning to try out blushers now after months of negligence! x

  23. Its lovely, I would be scared to touch it with that fabulous print on it.

    Price is quite steep for a bronzer isnt it!! Will have to save some pennies! ;)

  24. I actually walked past this in Debenhams and whirled around to look at it properly... then continued to stop and stare at it for about 2 whole minutes (which is long in shopping time).

  25. It is a little pricey but I like the different tones in it and think it would suit so many more skin tones! I really want to try some more Clarins products, I bought the Pure Melt Cleansing Gel pretty much purely on your recommendation and love it!

  28. the design on the actual bronzer is absolutely gorgeous! i think it would take me a long time to actually delve into it! i like the mixture of different shades as well so you can give them all a mix. i don't think i've ever used a proper bronzer before (only an old crappy one when i was younger) so whilst this is pretty expensive (but understandable for a limited edition product that is so beautiful!), i think i'll definitely have to check it out!
