My first review was about Clarins, where I mentioned that the brand had previously been pretty low on my radar, but I was not-so-slowly becoming one of their biggest fans. Well, the Spring 2013 offerings are no less impressive.
This eye shadow quad is a thing of beauty. A classy gold compact opens into four beautiful shades which can be worn wet or dry dependent on your preferred intensity. The colours aren’t the usual spring pastels, but a beautiful taupe, an inky black, a stunning iris purple and sheer glittery white.
My love for taupe eye shadow is well documented, and this one is perfection. Sheer enough for day, I love a wash of this lined with the purple at my lashes, then amped for evening with the addition of the black as a liner and white highlighter.
The compact is really a thing of beauty – and is destined to sit pride of place on my dressing table. The shadows are decorated with an imprinted iris, which makes them almost too good to use. Almost. The colours are just too pretty not to wear!
The quad is priced £30
