So in the previous three days I've shown you the lip and face products being released in the Clarins Summer collection which leaves the eye products.
First up the Limited edition Colour Quartet and Liner Palette £30.
This is the second Clarins eye shadow palette I've tried and as with the last one I tried, soft and luminous seems to be the formula for these, it's not in your face colour, it is gentle, glowing and pretty. What I especially like about this particular palette is the colour combination. I love anything that has a pop of something different about it so this neutral palette becomes something special with the addition of that beautiful purple.
I have to say that while I was looking at the photographs for this post I was reminded of something I couldn't quite remember, but then it came to me, this palette reminds me both in colours and finish of the Le Metier de Beaute Le Cirque Kaleidoscope. It's not a dupe, but it does bear a resemblance to it! Anyway, you know me by now, I don't pack colour on and I inevitably make colours look sheerer than they actually are with my special blending technique*
So anyway, take a look.
I love this! Its right up my street. I really want to have a play using less of the purple though. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the liner colour, whilst in my swatch it is a lovely pearly bronze-y brown, on my lid I struggled to get it to show up much. I don't mind too much though because the colours are so beautiful and give me the look I desire, soft and muted, I find there was no fall out whatsoever from these and they are really very smooth indeed. Gorgeous.
Next up the Limited Edition Kohl Kajal Long-Lasting Eyeliner £15
That purple though, its a gorgeous colour and it goes beautifully with the the Enchanted palette which is what I most excited about with the whole collection. That palette with that kohl and it is gorgeous. It's different and its exciting.
So that's the end of all my Clarins Summer posts. A glorious collection with high quality products in a beautiful selection of colours. I'm smitten and it goes without saying that once again from my point of view, Clarins can do no wrong.
*apply and hope for the best whilst probably over-blending....
