Just a very quick post today, to show you this Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Collector Edition palette.
This contains four wet-and-dry formula powder shadows (Wear them dry for a subtle, shimmery effect, and wet if you’re looking for deeper pigmentation) which are inspired by the Iris flower.
Despite not being a big eye-shadow fan (Although I’ve actually been wearing it a lot more often recently: the times, they are a-changin’) I think this is a really useful palette for any skin tone. Three of the shades are ones which I think of as “neutrals” when it comes to eye shadow – the white, brown and black are colours which even an eye-shadow novice such as myself can make use of – while the deep purple colour adds an injection of a brighter shade, but is still very wearable. (And a nice substitute for black, if you’re doing a smoky eye, say.)
The iridescent finish makes these nicely shimmery (although not TOO shimmery), and, as with most of Clarins’ products, the presentation is just lovely, with the quartet presented in a gold case, and embossed with a floral pattern. Gorgeous![Disclosure: This item was a free-of-charge sample]
