So here is a preview of Clarins’ Autumn 2012 makeup collection which is mostly about the eyes with a lot of new eye shadows, plum mascara, eye khol and the innovative eye liner.
The star of the collection is the Colour Accents Face & Blush Palette, £30
Clarins suggest that this limited edition face powder is ideal for all skin tones. You can blend together all shades or use pink as a blush.
There are also sixteen new Mineral Eyeshadow Smoothing and Long-Lasting, £16
You can use these both dry and wet and they, have different finish (matte, satin, pearl and shimmer) and are divided into four groups:
The naturals. ‘Five shades for very easy to wear, natural looking results. From matte beige to rose tones wear alone or blend with a darker shade’: 02 Nude, 03 Petal, 04 Golden Rose, 05 Lingerie, 06 Tea Rose.
The basics. ‘A palette of five simples shades from brown to green that create deep set, sculpted eye’s: 07 Auburn, 08 Taupe, 09 Lavender Tea, 10 Slate Blue, 11 Silver Green.
Intense colours. ‘Five highly pigmented shades that deliver instant colour for an intense, sophisticated look’: 12 Aubergine, 13 Dark Chocolate, 14 Platinum, 15 Sparkle Black, 16 Vibrant Violet
Illuminator. ‘This highlighter can be worn alone or over another shade to sparkle and illuminate your eyes’: 01 White Sparkle Illuminator.
3-Dot Liner (LE), £20
A new generation, ultra-easy eyeliner. The unique triple-point applicator effectively fills the space between each lash “dot by dot”, giving the illusion of a fuller-looking lash line. It combines the precision of a liquid eyeliner and the easy application of a pencil.
Khol Eye Pencil (LE), £15
Instant Definition Mascara Intense Plum (LE), £20
Rouge Prodige Lipstick, £17.50
132 Spiced Orange, 133 Fig, 134 Orchid Pink, 135 Dark Cherry
Collection will be available in September. I am definitely interested in the mascara and the liner.
