Clarins’ Palazzo d’Oro Collection: Gold Attraction Face Palette

Clarins Gold Attraction Face Palette ($57.00) is an elegant holiday highlighter from Clarins’ Palazzo d’Oro Collection.

It’s a particularly pretty to look at with the texture and design of the palette itself, and the overall shimmer and shade of it is quite lovely, too.  It swatches as a shimmery, sunny yellow gold with just a little peachiness to it. It’s shimmery, has a golden sheen, and it does warm up the complexion (but not in a bronzy way, as Lancome’s Sparkling Cherub does).

I would say it can run a little too shimmery, so if you’re more of a subtle-barely-there kind of gal, this might not make the best highlighter for your face.  (For your body?  Oh, yeah, dust this on your decolletage for some va-voom!)  I don’t mind using it as a face highlighter, though, and if you use a stippling brush (like MAC’s 187), you can get a more toned-down look than if you used a denser blush brush.

Bottom Line: It’s certainly not a must-have highlighter at $57 (which is a little spend-y), but it is an item that is worth a look at and perhaps purchased as a splurge during the holiday season.   The packaging is particularly luxe (has some heft to it), with a brilliant faux gold finish.

Recommendation: If you’re keen on lovely gold packaging and highlighters, this Clarins’ highlighter might be for you.
