Clarins First Bloggers Party At Institut Clarins @ Wheelock Place

Recently I attended Clarins very first Bloggers' party at Institut Clarins @ Wheelock Place and meet up with the lovely ladies, from Clarins Digital/Marketing Communications team, who had invited us to the party. We got to learn more about Clarins and its latest product (Clarins Shaping Facial Lift) as well as laying our hands on the newest Clarins Rouge Prodige Autumn Make-up Collection.

What is a party without food? We were treated to a sumptuous 4-course lunch which was specially catered from Goodwood Park Hotel. ( They literally transport their cutlery, food, staff all to Institut Clarins and made us feel as if we were just dining at Goodwood Park Hotel restaurant. The staff were present to serve us course after course, refill our drinks, change our cutlery.. I did not know such service is available)

^ Not included is the picture of the delicious creamy mushroom room.

Thereafter, Brenda and Joanna shared more information about Clarins Shaping Facial Lift with us and even guided us through the step by step Clarins Manual Auto-Lifting Manual method which made me realise that the 5-steps massage is pretty easy to master. ( More info and my reviews on Clarins Shaping Facial Lift here)

We also got the chance to experience a 15 minute personalised skincare consultation which is a complimentary service available at all Clarins counters for customers who are interested to try out Clarins products. The beauty advisor will be glad to offer you a customized Clarins skincare regime and provide some samples for you to try at home. (There is also a 30-minute skincare consultation if you can afford the time.)
^ These are the products that Grace (the Head therapist) recommended me based on my skin concerns.

Up next, its play-time... we were introduced to latest Clarins Rouge Prodige Autumn Make-up Collection and a chance to "play" with them..

Clarins Rouge Prodige is the new true-hold lipstick from Clarins, with a high -performance formula that offers rich colour, stnning shine and lost-lasting comfort. Thanks to High Fidelity Pearl Technology and its high-performance formula that combines ultra-fine and transparent plant oils to deliver perfect shine. Available in 29 gorgeous colours, with different shade selection according to markets.

($35 for 3g/0.1 oz a pop)

Clarins Palette Prodige Face & Blush Powder is a soft, comfortable compact powder which adapts to all types of makeup and enhances all complexions. Its 4 radiant shades instantly illluminates the complexion to give a velvety, ultra-natural finish. This beauty is housed in a light gold, square case and included a red velvet purse, so we can carry it around with us without fear of scratching the elegant packaging.
(This Limited Edition beauty cost $65 for 10g/0.35oz)
Another new product in this Autumn collection is this Instant Blush Magic Colour, a blush which instantly brings colour to the cheeks and even the lips. Its soft, glossy tecture instantly reacts on contact with the skin, enhancing cheeks by boosting their colour and radiance. This blush comes in only 1 colour, and 1 shade suits all complexions...In fact, the blush colour will appear differently on each individual. Nobody can tell that you and your BFF are wearing the same magic blush because it will look different on both of you...
(This Limited Edition chamelon cost $42 for 6g/0.21oz)
Clarins Kohl Eye Pencil is perfect for creating smouldering , smoky eyes. It is rich in pigments, and glides on easily, intensely colouring from the first stroke. It does not run and gives lasting hold with a formula gentle on even the most sensitive eyes. Available in No.01 Extreme black and priced at $27.

Last but not least in this collection is Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara which thickens, curls and lengthens lashes to create high-glamour eyes from the first brushstroke. Available in No.01 Wonder black.

Here are some pictures taken at the party:

A big thank you to Brenda, Jasmine and Joanna for inviting me to your very first bloggers party and sharing more about Clarins with us.. I had a splendid afternoon at Institut Clarins indulging in the sumptuous food, beauty chat, experiencing Clarins skincare products and trying out Clarins latest Autumn Makeup collection.('',)
