Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows Review and Swatches

I know that a lot of people were  waiting for the review of Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows, but I wanted to take my time, and test them out properly. And, finally, I am ready to share my impression.

This Autumn the brand released 6 shades of  what they describe as “new generation cream to powder eye shadows”:01 Nude Beige, 02 Nude Pink, 03 Taupe,  04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth.

Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows Review and Swatches Nude Pink RosewoodThese come with a signature red Clarins packaging, in a cute lightweight plastic jar with a golden lid on top.  Despite the fact that it is not glass, the products still looks high-end.

So what about the formula?

I’d describe it as a very well pressed creamy powder. The finish is matte (at least in the shades that I have), so they look very natural on the eye lids.

Clarins Odyssey Makeup Collection for Christmas 2012

Clarins Christmas 2012 makeup collection called Odyssey was inspired by the Greek Gods. This collection includes two gorgeous compacts with  a beautiful logo on top which, according to the brand, evokes the magnificence of Ancient Greece.

I am personally a die-hard of of anything inspired by a certain culture, so I love it, of course! Well done, Clarins. I vote for Scandinavia and Latin America to be next 😉

Clarins suggests going for a luminous complexion, coppery eyes and warm toned brown lips for AW season.

So let’s tale a look at the palettes.

Odyssey Face Palette (£35)

This compact should work for all skin tones and should ‘enhance the complexion for a beautiful, more even skin tone. The Light-Optimizing+ Complex reduces the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections leaving skin looking even and radiant.’
