Clarins Says "Eye Love You" With Its New Makeup Collection | Clozette

There is some truth to the saying that the eyes are the windows of the soul. Dull, tired-looking eyes practically spell “stressed out” on their own. With eyes being an indicator of happiness, it’s important that you keep your peepers looking bright and lovely as much as possible. Clarins’ new eye makeup collection promises you flawless eyes with three, innovative products you can add to your essentials.

 Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara

Ever wanted eyelash extensions but just couldn’t be bothered with the upkeep? The Wonder Perfect Mascara 4D is the wonder tool for your lash needs. Its Lash Boosting Complex adds 10.1% extra volume in a single stroke, with an instant lengthening effect of 5.6%. Rose wax and plant waxes coat the lashes to provide a lifted, effortless curl, while the brush is designed to separate and define your lashes flawlessly. Worried about lash fallout? Rose wax and panthenol condition and protect your lashes with each use so your lashes can look and feel their best every single day.

Clarins also adds more variety to their eyeshadows through the Ombre Velvet, Ombre Satin, and Ombre Sparkle collection. If you’re looking for a nice, everyday matte shadow, the Ombre Velvet cream-gel eyeshadow pots make for easy application. If you’re looking to add more dimension, the Ombre Satin cream-gel eyeshadow pots have a hint of shine for a bit of oomph. And if you’re looking to really dazzle, the Ombre Sparkle powder eyeshadows are the way to go. With nine beautiful shades to choose from, you’ve got your week covered with a little extra for the next.

Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil Blue Orchid

Liner application can be such a hassle especially when you live in a hot and humid environment but Clarins new Waterproof Pencil promises to trump all that. The retractable pencil is sweat-proof and transfer-proof with three intense, long-wearing shades that can last you a full eight hours. To kohl or not to kohl? That is the question.



When it comes to healthy, hydrated skin, most women are hard-pressed to find one product that suits their skin’s specific needs. Many of us have resorted to tailoring our skincare routines by way of trial-and-error to cover all our problem areas — be it dryness, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, or a combination of different skin concerns. But what if there was a product that combines your hydration needs with the targeted treatment of a serum? Meet Clinique iD™.

Clinique iD™’s unique approach enables you to personalise your skincare product by way of a custom-blend hydrator targeted specifically for your skin’s needs. This revolutionary serum-meets-moisturiser features 15 different combinations to hydrate and treat skin concerns. It’s taken a tour through five destinations — from Morocco to Japan, and now it’s finally landed in the Philippines. With the extreme heat and humidity we face in a tropical climate, it can be difficult to nail that balance between lightweight hydration and heavy treatment but Clinique iD seems to be up for the challenge.

Customising your hydrator takes only two steps. First, select your moisturising base by picking either the moisturising lotion, the oil-control gel, or the crowd favourite hydrating jelly. Next, pick your serum/actives cartridge, which you insert into the moisturising base as part of the blend. For this there are five choices precisely tailored for a variety of skin issues: lactobacillus probiotics to soothe and calm skin irritation, taurine for combatting fatigue and a reviving glow, AHAs to smooth out pores and uneven skin texture, whey protein to blur fine lines and wrinkles and plump out the skin, and finally, Japanese Angelica Root to brighten and even skin tone.

Combined with the base, the custom hydrator delivers ample hydration and nourishment to your skin as it receives sufficient treatment for problem areas. While the skin may grow more sensitive and irritated under Manila heat, Clinique iD™ still retains the qualities that make the brand so appealing: it contains no parabens, phthalates, or fragrance making it gentle but effective for even the most delicate skins. 

Find your Clinique iD™ at a Clinique store near you soon.



The internet is a big (and sometimes scary) place. Just YouTube itself has a plethora of content for everyone, and you won’t always know what you’ll run into after just a few minutes of tapping through video recommendations. One minute, you’re watching movie trailers and then you’re suddenly onto pimple popping videos. Weirdly enough, no matter how gross the extremely zoomed-in shots of stuff popping out someone’s pores is, we can’t keep our eyes off it. As if those kinds of videos weren’t enough, a new trend is taking over our favourite beauty vloggers' community: microscope beauty.

The oddly satisfying trend all started with YouTuber Tina Yong and her “Peel Off Blackhead Mask Under A Microscope” video. Millions of hits later, her #TINASCOPE videos inspired other beauty vloggers to upload their own “Under A Microscope” episodes, with subjects ranging from cosmetic products to other beauty tools. So if you’ve ever been curious about how your skin or makeup looks really up close, read on.

Zooming on makeup

Makeupbypita’s video is only one of the many makeup product zoom-ins uploaded on the site. Hold on tight because these sorts of videos are going to show you what your favourite palettes and beauty tools really contain — at least on the surface level. 

What's real?

Of course, who would pass up the opportunity to closely compare the actual difference between the legit and the rip-off beauty products? No matter how similar they look at normal distance, videos like Safiya Nygaard’s will prevent you from being lured into knowingly buying these cheaper versions.

Bare face, brave heart 

Now here’s the real deal. YouTubers like dope2111 brave it out and show a microscopic view of their faces with both makeup and none. Prepare to be disturbed and disgusted — and wanting to see even more.


To other parts we go

The vlogger who started it all takes us to undiscovered sights. Moving on from makeup and beauty products, Tina Yong shows us that even her scalp and nails can be quite interesting subjects underneath the microscope. After all these, you’ll never see yourself the same way again.

This latest YouTube trend sure has us all feeling like scientists. Quite unsettling and gross but also a tad bit informative and cool.  Where we’ll all use this info for, we honestly don’t know. But more knowledge more power, right?
