Clarins’ 5, 10, & 15 Minute Makeup Routines + Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post by Clarins – but the opinions are all my own.


Being a busy mama of two, I hardly have time to gather my thoughts, eat, get out of sweatpants, take a shower, and a dozen other things I attempt to accomplish for myself on a daily basis.  In all the hustle and bustle of life, applying make up has unfortunately shifted the the bottom of the list.  I manage to smear a little on when I’m on the way to church each week but that’s about it.  I run to the grocery store with kids in tow hoping not to run into anyone I know.  If you’re a mom please comment and tell me that you’ve done that before and I’m not alone.  I feel alone in this most days as the moms I know (who I love and admire!) look polished and put together every time I see them.  Well, now I can join those put together moms…at least, a few days a week!

Clarins has put together a fabulous set of products to give moms a simple 5, 10, and 15 minute make up routine.  (The 15 minute routine is for those rare occasions when the babysitter is running late and the husband is wrangling the kids.)

For those with older kids, these quick looks are great for transitioning from a professional day time look to a date night look in mere minutes.

Not only do I love all of the products in the collection, but I’ve also began using many of them on a daily basis which is proof that these quick routines really do work!  While I think they are all great, I do have my favorites! The two stars of the collection for me are the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer and the 3-Dot Liner.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Gloss Review

The color is perfectly subtle and adds just the right amount of shimmer.

Clarins 3 dot eye liner

This 3 dot liner is genius!  When applied gently it will make your lashes look thicker by dotting a line just above the base of your eyelid.  It can also be used like a regular eye liner and is precise enough to make a killer cat eye too.

Because I absolutely adore the Instant Light Lip Perfector, I want to give one of you the chance to try it out for yourself.  This giveaway is for US and Canadian residents 18 years and older.  Simple visit this link and tell me which product you would most like to try and which of the three looks best fits your lifestyle.

Good luck!
