Clarins Garden Escape Eyeshadow Palette

Clarins Garden Escape Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for oz.) is a six-pan eyeshadow palette that ranges from white gold to taupe brown. The formula in the palette is supposed to be a wet and dry one, so you can use it “dry for a soft nuance of color” or “wet for sophisticated elegance.” The texture was on the drier, more powdery side, which made dry application more difficult and messy, as the colors didn’t stick as well to the skin, tended to sheer out, and a lot of product fell underneath the eye when applied. The dampened application made it easier to get more opaque, even color to adhere to the lid, but it seemed to make blending a little harder. Overall, it was okay; not horrible, not great. Also worth mentioning is that the palette contains 0.10 oz. worth of product, which is less than 0.02 oz. per eyeshadow.

Clarins Forest Eye Quartet Mineral Palette

Clarins Forest Eye Quartet Mineral Palette ($42.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a series of “autumn hues” of “khaki, satiny taupe, intense bronze, and pale gold.” The formula can be used wet or dry, depending on the intensity one desires. Three of the four shades had very nice color payoff, while one shade had more of a glimmering, metallic consistency and look, so it was sheerer (the press release actually calls it a “beige illuminator,” so sheerness would make sense here). The darkest shade felt like a cream eyeshadow–did not feel like a powder at all. All four shades wore without fading or creasing for almost eight hours, and the glittery shade had minor fall out over time. Worth noting, the palette seems like it has plenty of product, but by weight, it’s a mere 0.10 oz.–which is about half of what you’d expect spread across four eyeshadows.

Clarins The Essentials Eye Palette

Clarins The Essentials Eye Palette ($45.00 for 0.40 oz.) contains ten eyeshadows and will be released sometime this November (I don’t have an exact date). Each eyeshadow is 0.04 oz., which is just shy of the average size of a full-sized eyeshadow (0.05 oz.). Overall, it’s a nice palette; I only had trouble with a few shades–the beige shade having the oddest texture I’ve encountered; crumbly and difficult to blend. All of the more frosted eyeshadows had excellent color payoff, soft, buttery textures, and were easy to apply and blend on the eye. With the exception of the lightest, more matte shade, these eyeshadows wore well for eight to eight and a half hours without fading or creasing.  The palette is encased in thick cardboard with ties that hold the lid in place.
