Are those the shades of the new Lip Perfectors by Clarins you see? YES! Hell, yes. The cult lip balms will be available in two new glorious variations – 07 Toffee Pink Shimmer 08 and Plum Shimmer (£18 each).
There is also a new LE Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette (£33) An iridescent rose-bronze compact with five super wearable eye shadows.
What about the other products?
There are new Ombre Iridescent eye shadows (£19) cream-to-powder eye shadows with iridescent finish.
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.
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.
I love the brands that interact with their followers on Twitter. And Clarins is one of those brands. Every Wednesday they have a #ShowUsYourClarins thing going on. So I thought that I would take a part in it, too. But I’ve decided to do it in a form of a post. So here it is!

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.’
