Clarins 4-Colour Smokey Eyeshadow Palette

Clarins Spring 2017 Collection

Clarins has launched the Spring 2017 Collection a couple of months ago. I am highlighting this gorgeous Clarins 4- Colour Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. I love the smokey intensity of these shades.

Clarins Eyeshadow Palette

4-Color Eyeshadow Palette in “05 Smokey” ($45 CAD):

This palette features a shimmery white pearl, a satin semi-sheer silver, a satin/shimmer grey, and a dark satin black.  This palette is a highly pigmented formulation that applies with ease.  All the colours blend nicely together.

I love the silver packaging of this compact.  It has a very classy look to it.  The compact comes in a red velvet sleeve with Clarins embossed on the front. I love the compact size of this palette, making it easy to carry in your purse.

I love that it comes with a guide on how to use this smokey palette – this is a must for a non make-up professional like me, I need all the help I can get.  Do you know how to apply a nice smokey eye?

These eyeshadows can be used wet for a more intense make-up look or dry for a natural make-up look. I don’t think that these eyeshadows need to be used wet as the pigment is pretty intense.

I love Clarins, I am never disappointed with their products.  I don’t usually wear a smokey eye, not because I don’t like it but more because I am not experienced with this look without looking like I gave myself two black eyes.  (lol). I wish all eyeshadow palettes would provide a suggested guide on how to best combine the colours, for non-professionals like me.  Have you tried any Clarins products?

Have you mastered the smokey eye look?

Did you know if you hover your curser over the pictures that it gives you the option to post to Pinterest?  Sharing is caring 🙂

I've only tried a couple of Clarins' single eye shadows, they're lovely. As for mastering a smokey eye... hrm kind of. I don't like anything TOO heavy looking. My go to palette for a smokey look is Guerlain Les Fumés - it's a no-brainer.

Clarins is sooo good! I love that they even give you that card to tell you where to put what. So handy, esp for someone like me who doesn't know the first thing about doing a smokey eye! The quality of the color tones are great too, very vivid and bold!

xo, JJ
