Clarins 'Colour Accents' Face and Blush Powder - AW12 - Released at the end of August, price to be confirmed.
The Clarins Colour Accents powder is a a matte, soft, finely milled powder that, to me, sits more in the bronzer capacity than a face powder or blush. Housed in a beautiful, mirrored gold compact with a large mirror, it is one of my go-to cheek products at the moment.

Featuring four shades in neutral bronze and pink tones, I can see my Colour Accents powder becoming a firm bronzing product throughout the summer. I tend to swirl my brush around all of the shades as it would be nearly impossible to pick out a particular shade! Having said that (and I don't know if I'm just super wary of bronzers), it is highly pigmented and if applied with a slightly heavier hand, I can see this feeling quite muddy and cakey on the skin.

A tiny product goes a long way: I'm currently using it with my Japonesque powder brush and it picks up so much product that I often feel like I'm wasting a lot by tapping off the excess (granted, I do this on top of the product...!). It is definitely a buildable cheek colour and would be well suited to those with light to medium skintones. For reference, I have a light olive complexion with yellowy undertones.

  1. Because I'm so pale a lot of blushes/bronzers just make me look flushed or orange so it's been a bit hit and miss, which is why I tend not to wear them. These colours look so light but also warm, may have to check it out when I'm next in town!

    1. Mm I tend to find that too, they always veer towards orange on me as well, but this is the perfect balance between natural and bronzed (:
