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.

The swatch is pretty! And I know I’m weird, but the palette design makes it look like a boxed piece of a sparkly model brain you’d find in a high school life science lab 😀

even that it doesn’t contain those huge size sparkles, but from the picture I can tell why you only give it a B+. The golden silky shimmer looks more like a eye shadow than a face high light. It is possible to become a bronze under daylight. =P
I think it could look good to contour the flat-nose, make it more standing out at night.

I think its pretty and sparkly. (Here comes the “but”)But no one needs to pay that much for it, its too overpriced for something I wouldnt use everyday or even to splurge on for the holidays. Ill just stick with being the queen of chic cheap, b/c usually with these overpriced high end brands you just wind up paying for the name IMO.

I have this and I love it! I think the sparkles only rest on top- like an overspray… So when you keep using it the actual powder is a gorgeous highlight! I did a review on my blog as well 🙂
