As happy as I was to be sent this palette, I have to admit, I felt a little bit guilty about actually using it, because look:
That pattern is just too pretty to destroy by swiping a brush over it multiple times, isn’t it? That’s what I’ve been doing, though, in the name of Dollface research, and happily the pattern is holding up just fine so far, although I did take these photos before I touched it, just in case!
This is another item from Clarin’s Colour Breeze collection: the Face and Blush Powder Palette, which retails for £30. I’ve been dusting it all over my face, as a setting powder, rather than using it as a blusher, because the colour it creates isn’t deep enough to bring a flush to my pale cheeks. (You can use the pink shade on its own as a blusher if you want: I don’t, because it’s not a shade that suits me.) As a face powder, however, I really like it: the various different shades all blend together to create a delicate, peachy shade, which works perfectly on pale skin, adding just a tiny hint of colour, which is enough to bring some life to my complexion without looking too obvious: in fact, I didn’t photograph it on my skin, because you wouldn’t be able to tell I was wearing it in a photo!
Like the eyeshadow palette I showed you last week, this comes in a pretty, gold case, with a mirror in the lid. Lovely, no?
