Clarins is one of my all time favourite beauty brands. I've tried many products including the One Step Gentle Cleansing Exfoliator and I always seem to be very pleased with the quality and longevity of each item I buy.
My most recent purchase is the Clarins Limited Edition Ombré Minerale eye palette (09 odyssey) which combines smoky and neutral tones with a striking gold foiled eyeshadow that can be applied when wet or dry.
Eye shadow is certainly something that I cannot live without (along with my concealer and mascara) as it masks any tell-tale signs of tiredness and helps to brighten up the eye area whilst reducing any redness.
This limited edition Clarins palette seemed to be the perfect fit in terms of what I was looking for, a set of everyday eye shadows that can also be worn during the evening. With Christmas and New Year on the horizon and many celebrations to attend, I wanted a palette that combined neutral shades with metallic colours that can be used to add extra impact and drama when needed!
As you can see the palette has four beautiful mineral shades inside, two applicators and a handy mirror for on-the-go touch ups! There's even a very swish velvet case and a card which shows you how the colours are best applied.
The eye shadows are particularly long wearing, have a silky-smooth mineral texture and don't tend to smudge or fade over the course of the day!
This really has been an excellent purchase and I have been using it non-stop. I just hope that Clarins continue to make this palette available before I have to go and buy another 3!
