Its that time of the year when new makeup collections are coming our way this time its the beautiful Clarins Pretty day and Night Makeup Collection. I luckily got given some of the collection to play with. Its a mixture of nude netral palettes to pops of colour with the new Ombre matt shades.
There are two limited edition palettes in the collection my palette is the pretty night (R435) with beautiful bronze shades and two pretty night time shades to smoke it up and to really give it a pop add in the new carbon black kohl eye liner (R250). Its a pretty versatile little palette as the bronze shades are perfect for the day.
I am totally in love with the new Ombre matt shades (R270) especially the colbalt blue and ultra violet an amazing way to add a pop. the black matt shade can be used as a base for a smokey eye or just used on its own for an undone sultry smokey eye. For the day time look the taupe heather shade is perfect to keep your makeup simple.
I worked the palette 3 ways making the last look the night time look working in the black kohl pencil to add the extra definition. I started with the first 3 shades of the palete for the first look and the second look I took the plum shade to add some smoke as well as filling my brows with one of the new brow pencils (R225) with a new long wear formula.
The collection is in stores this week with some lippie shades as well which I haven’t had a chance to try yet. I love the palette its one you can pop in your hand bag and change your look before you leave the office and the khol pencil glides on so beautifully. I love it.
