Clarins Nude (01) Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.20 oz.) is consists of four powder eyeshadows that are supposed to be usable both wet and dry and have long-wearing results. It’s a peachy twist on neutrals–not quite orange, not quite pink. I like that there was a really deep shade, which made it more versatile and added much-needed contrast to the palette. While you can apply them wet or dry, I only felt one of the four shades really benefited from damp application significantly, so it is definitely wearable if you prefer to use your eyeshadows dry.

Clarins Brown (03) Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.20 oz.) is consists of four powder eyeshadows that are supposed to be usable both wet and dry and have long-wearing results. I think that, despite being a neutral palette, it is not quite as dupable as is typical, because there is a lot less warmth coming from orange tones. It’s also more subdued, which may make it an easy to wear palette for some.

The texture is much denser and firmer in the pan (but not stiff or difficult to blend out) with greater pigmentation and a smoother, less powdery/dry finish, even when used dry. They reminded me of formulas like Make Up For Ever’s Artist Shadow but not quite as cream-like. This particular set of shades wore fairly well, but I had some issues with the deepest shade when used dry, as it didn’t adhere as well and looked a bit patchy. I liked the finish and intensity of using the shades with a slightly dampened brush more, personally. They are not too different applied dry or damp in coverage, which is good if you don’t typically bother to use a damp brush!

Clarins Rosewood (02) Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a sultry set of smoky, mauve shades housed in a gold-hued compact. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because this an updated, reformulated version, except the colors are more different than not from what I’ve seen (I don’t recall having the original). The formula is a wet/dry formulation that’s supposed to be long-wearing.

Clarins Spring 2016 Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadows

Clarins Silver Ivory Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow
Clarins Silver Ivory Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow

Clarins Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a cream-to-powder eyeshadow that is supposed to adhere well to skin, last long, and give “pure color.” The texture is lightly spongy, where it has give if you press against it, but it doesn’t have the wetness of your traditional cream eyeshadow. The texture is smooth, lightweight, and blendable, while color coverage was mostly opaque to opaque. The three I tried lasted between seven and eight hours on me. You’ll notice that Silver Ivory has come away from the edges of the pot, but it didn’t seem drier in texture compared to the others and pretty much performed similarly!

Clarins Silver Ivory Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a muted, light-medium golden pewter with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was easy to use, blendable, and retained most of its opacity when applied to the lid without sheering out too readily. On me, it lasted for seven and a half hours before creasing. Giorgio Armani #19 (LE, $33.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Palladium (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Two Stylish #1 (P) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Arctic Grey (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #5 (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

NARS Give In Take I (LE, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Golden Pear (LE, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Hello Kitty Cookie (LE) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Too Faced Indulge (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). NARS Antares (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Greenluxe #3 (P) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Clarins Silver Pink Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a muted, medium pink-mauve with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied well and was easy to use. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing on me. Tarte Haunting (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Lilacked (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Maybelline Rose Riot (140) (LE, $6.99) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm #32 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Clarins Silver Plum Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium-dark, mauvey taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had great pigmentation with a lightly creamy, smooth texture that applied nicely to the skin and blended out easily. This was the longer-wearing of the three, as it made it to eight hours before light creasing was noticeable. Tarte Up Too Slate (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Wave (LE) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Cherie (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Clarins Rosewood #3 (P) is darker (90% similar).

Clarins Garden Escape Eyeshadow Palette

Clarins Garden Escape Eyeshadow Palette
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.

Garden Escape #1 is a brightened, medium white with subtle neutral-to-cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage dry and slightly more opaque coverage damp. The texture was soft but not powdery, and it lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Make Up For Ever D124 Crystalline White (P, $21.00) is cooler. Chanel Tisse Camelia #2 (P, ) is less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #1 (LE, ) is warmer. Too Faced Famous in a Small Town (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. theBalm #11 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Lunar Lights (P, ) is darker. Disney by Sephora Ball Gown (LE, ) is cooler. theBalm Envious Erin (P, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Chillproof (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Inglot #453 (P, $6.00) is brighter. Guerlain Les Nuees #2 (LE, ) is cooler. MAC Smoky Black Friday #1 (LE, ) is lighter. Colour Pop Tassel (P, $5.00) is cooler. Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery. Stila Moonstone (P, ) is darker, warmer.See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Garden Escape #2 is a muted, medium-dark green with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, which intensified to fully opaque coverage when applied wet. The texture was a little dry, and it started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Urban Decay Damaged (LE, $18.00) is darker, brighter. Tarina Tarantino Very Wicked (LE, ) is lighter, more muted. MAC My Next Indulgence (LE, $16.50) is warmer. Inglot #414 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Garden Escape #3 is a mute,d light-medium olive green with warm undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage both wet and dry, though the damp application seemed to bring out the green tones in it. It lasted for seven and a half hours but had a texture that was on the powdery side. Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #3 (LE, ) is darker. theBalm Kawabunga (LE, $16.00) is darker, brighter, warmer. MAC Olive Blend #3 (LE, ) is warmer. Ulta Sage (P, $10.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Cakeshop (LE, ) is more shimmery. MAC Unsurpassable (LE, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Garden Escape #4 is a light-medium, strawberry pink with warm, yellow undertones and a golden, frosted shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation both wet and dry, while the wet application made it appear slightly darker. The texture was slightly powdery, and the color stayed on well for seven and a half hours.
Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover #6 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker, brighter. Surratt Beauty Ingenue (P, $20.00) is darker. Colour Pop Bubbly (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. Too Faced Kindness is Free (LE, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Pink Sensibilities #3 (LE, $21.00) is cooler. bareMinerals Page Six (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Garden Escape #5 is a light, warm-toned pink with a pearly sheen. It’s a lighter version of the previous pink, but I was surprised to see both in this palette. It was semi-opaque both wet and dry, and the texture wasn’t too powdery so it applied a bit more easily, though it only lasted for seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Eggplant Blend #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Ulta Pink (P, $10.00) is less shimmery. Kat Von D Instaglam (LE, ) is lighter. bareMinerals Glitterati (LE, ) is warmer. MAC Invincible Light (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Giorgio Armani #29 (LE, $33.00) is darker. Guerlain Cygne Blanc #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker.

Dior Trafalgar #1 (P, ) is warmer.See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Garden Escape #6 is a medium brown with a hint of gray and a frosted finish. Depending on what it is paired with, the gray tones were more or less apparent. The texture was soft and blendable, while the color payoff was the same–mostly opaque–both wet and dry, but it applied more easily damp. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Make Up For Ever I538 Pearly Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Quintessential (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. LORAC Sienna (LE, ) is more shimmery. theBalm Tubular (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Laura Mercier Topaz (P, ) is lighter. Cle de Peau Stardust #3 (P, ) is lighter.

MAC Force of Nature #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, cooler. NARS Ursa Major (LE, $29.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
