This season is all about the matte eye. Contouring opens eyes up for a brighter appearance without all the strategically placed highlighter and shimmer — which can sometimes be overkill. Ombre Matte Eyeshadows come in a cream-to-powder formula that awash the eye in neutral shades including: N04 Rosewood, N03 Taupe, N06 Earth, N01 Nude Beige, N02 Nude Pink and N05 Sparkle Grey. Smoothing and long-lasting, these cream eyeshadows apply evenly and feel like close to nothing on the eyelids. Use your fingers to blend and contour for a soft, natural Parisian look.

The matte eye is here! Get on it!

But before you lay a single pigment on your lids, make sure to prime with the NEW! Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base. Much like its facial predecessor, this base revives tired eyes and illuminates lids for a brighter look. Oat plant extract helps smooths eyelids while 3D pigments create a brightening effect. Eyeshadow holds onto lids 94.7% better than without this perfecting eye primer!

Clarins Matte Eye Quad Fall 2014 Review, Swatches: Clarins Ladylike Fall 2014 Collection: Instant Light Perfecting Base, Ombre Matte Eyeshadows, Age-Defying Lipstick

For an everyday palette, Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette holds natural skintone shades that enhance and warm any eye color. The highly concentrated mineral pigments glide onto lids like a dream, sinking into the eyelid like second skin. Satin and iridescent shades last and last — build up the color or layer for unlimited eye looks.

Clarins Lips Fall 2014 Review, Swatches: Clarins Ladylike Fall 2014 Collection: Instant Light Perfecting Base, Ombre Matte Eyeshadows, Age-Defying Lipstick
You don’t have to sacrifice lip color for lip care anymore. NEW! Clarins Age-Defying Lipstick is the first anti-aging lipstick from the trusted brand. With its Nutri-Youth Complex, rich and indulgent shades create fuller, younger-looking lips. The more you wear it, the more luscious your lips will be! Available in 5 new shades: 16 Candy Rose, 17 Pink Magnolia, 18 Strawberry Sorbet (shown), 19 Chestnut Brown and 20 Red Fuchsia (shown). Unlike its name, 20 Red Fuchsia comes off as a deeper red shade, while 18 Strawberry Sorbet is the perfect fall nude that has a touch of pink in it for a flattering semi-matte finish.

Review, Swatches: Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment, Concealer - How To Best Conceal & Treat Acne Breakouts

Blemishes can be caused by a plethora of causes. Stress, hormones, diet. Big or small, they are just plain annoying. And covering them up can be more stressful than trying to cover them. Cover FX has taken care of this problem. They offer a bountiful array of products to make your life and concealing routine easier. Primers, BB gels and concealers will render your skin flawless.Review, Swatches: Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment, Concealer - How To Best Conceal & Treat Acne Breakouts

First up is the Calming Primer. Why a calming primer you ask? Well, if you have ever encountered red, itchy, swollen skin you know how difficult it is to apply makeup. This soothing primer is formulated with caring ingredients such as St. John’s Wart and Endothelyol to relieve redness and soothe irritation. Defensil Plus relieves dry, itchy, allergy-prone skin. And as a bonus, Pep 4-17 stimulates collagen production and reveals a clearer complexion.

Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation, Pressed Mineral & Setting Powders And Brushes

Have you ever had a zit that just will not behave? Concealer cakes and refuses to cover, right? Blemish Treatment Primer takes care of the issue. It preps blemishes, creating a smooth surface so you can cover until you are satisfied. Be sure to use Blemish Primer Brush to ensure a good application.

Review, Swatches: Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment, Concealer - How To Best Conceal & Treat Acne Breakouts

The product I am most excited about is the NEW! BB Gel — Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment. It is a true multitasker, minimizing pores while banishing blemishes. At first glance,  the medium shade looked so dark. However, once I smoothed it onto my skin it morphed into my perfect shade. A powerful duo of salicylic acid and thyme treat blemishes; evermat reduces sebum production; vitamin C protects your skin from environmental aggressors. All of these products are free of the Inflammatory Five: gluten, parabens, mineral oil, talc and fragrance. They are also vegan-friendly!Review, Swatches: Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment, Concealer - How To Best Conceal & Treat Acne Breakouts

Last but not least, the Blemish Treatment Concealer. Just like the rest of these products, they reduce redness, inflammation and oil production. How great is that? I love all of these products. They cover AND treat your skin. However, they don’t make you a flaky mess. Just perfection! So, during your next flare-up, I recommend you get these products!
