The Clarins Festive Eye Makeup Palette * (£35) | available on counters and online now
You know Christmas is fast-approaching when Clarins release their yearly festive eyeshadow palette – a beautiful selection of shadows that has become quite a beauty tradition around this time every year. So it would be fair to say that I heard distant jingle bells and the belly laugh of Father Christmas as this season’s Christmas Eyeshadow Palette from Clarins arrived through my letterbox and I was very excited to flip the lid and see what treats were nestled beneath.
The 2015 Clarins Festive Eyeshadow Palette is quite the show-stopper and contains a mix of ten ultra-soft shadows in an assortment of warm shades with either matte, satin or sparkly, irridescent finishes. The formula of these shadows is so lovely and easy to work with, feeling soft and blendable on the eyelids, with the added option to use them wet for an enhanced intensity. The range of colours are so pretty and would be perfect for an Autumnal look now or saved for something more special around the festive period for all those glitzy Christmas parties. Each matte shadow is enriched with musk rose oil whilst the satin powders contain white meadowfoam which gives them a nourishing quality and gorgeous texture on the eyelids. The chocolate brown packaging with gold embossing contains a large mirror and birchwood double-ended applicator so is perfect for travelling or popping in your handbag to take you seamlessly from desk to disco!
Will you be treating yourself to this or popping it on your Christmas list?
