I gave you a little peek at the Clarins Autumn 2014 Eye Quartet Mineral Palette last week in my Clarins Autumn Collection post and today I have it here for you up close and personal with swatches galore!!
Clarins’ Autumn makeup collection for 2014 is all about allowing women to ‘fully assume their femininity’ and there’s a real focus on softness with elegant definition. I am a huge fan of the Clarins eye palettes. The textures are always super soft and blendable and also really kind to the skin around my eyes.
The Autumn 14 Ladylike palette has the new ‘skin tones’ shade collection which includes soft beige, intense warm brown and 2 taupe shades. These colours will work well on all skin tones and can be used lightly for a super flattering day time look. You can also build up the intensity by layering, or using the shadows wet, for more or a dramatic evening eye look.
Clarins Autumn 2014 Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Swatches – Dry!
Clarins Autumn 2014 Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Swatches – Wet!
As you can see, the shades are beautifully pigmented both wet and dry – you just get that extra depth and impact when you add a tiny touch of water. I also think the water brings out the multi-dimensions of the colours.
I used the palette dry for this look and layered the powders over the brilliant new Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base. It stayed put perfectly until I took it off.
I really love this palette and you’ll notice the soft yet defined look of a brown eyeliner. This is the new Clarins 3 Dot Liner in Limited Edition brown which is also out for Autumn. You can see it in my full collection post.
The Clarins Autumn 2014 Eye Quartet Mineral Palette launches in August 2014. Check out the current Summer 2014 collection HERE.
