Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Collector Edition

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!
