Tag: Clarins makeup review
Clarins have been killing it with their eye shadows lately, and I have been completely in love.
I’ve been wearing their summer cream eye shadows pretty much exculively for months (and also made some of my friends get those), and their new Autumn palettes are also to-die-for. I’ve already included them in my monthly favourites, and here is why.
First of all, I like the packaging which feels more sleek and luxurious compared to the old version, the compacts are also not bulky, and are travel-friendly.
Ecah palette contains four eye shadows. I have 03 Brown and 04 Oud, and here is a close up.
There are four palette in general, and the idea is that each palette is designed to compliment a particular eye colour. Mine are created for brown/hazel eyes. The other two variations are: Nude for blue eyes and Rosewood for the green. Although you can, obviously, choose whichever palette.
As for the ones that I have 03 Brown is great for creating shadows and contour, and also for subtle classic brown smoky eyes. However, it is 04 Oud the star of
Clarins Colour Accents Face & Blush Palette is a limited edition product from their Autumn collection.
The pattern includes four colours which you can use separately or swirl together.
I have to say that it is very hard to use the pink colour itself unless you use a very small (eye shadow) brush for a very precise application. But when it’s used mixed with other shades, it adds some freshness to the colour you get.
I personally use this palette as I would use my blush, bronzer or contouring powder, depending on what look I am going for.
It’s nice that Accents Face & Blush palette is not very dark or orange, it would look nice even on fair complexions if you use it lightly, of course.
