Clarins’ seasonal collections are always so stunning and the new Autumn collection is no different. The Clarins Ladylike Autumn Makeup Collection is said to allow women to fully assume their femininity with a range of captivating colours and finishes, and the products are all focused on the eyes. The Clarins Ladylike Collection includes six product releases, one of which is the new Clarins Ombre Matte Cream-to-Powder Matte Eyeshadows.
When I saw that Clarins were launching a range of matte cream to powder eyeshadows, I was extremely excited as I’m an eyeshadow addict with a love for cream shadows in particular.
The Clarins Ombre Matte Eyeshadows are described as having a cream to powder texture that offers the comfort and smoothing effect of a cream shadow with the fine quality and hold of a powder eyeshadow. They contain soft focus pigments to give the colours a pure and fine quality and also contain Bamboo powder which helps create a matte and even finish.
Each of the Ombre Matte Eyeshadows are £19* each and there are six shades within the range; all of which are beautiful, wearable neutrals. Each of the eyeshadows are packaged beautifully like the entire Clarins Makeup line.. in circular plastic pots, with a gold screw-top lid. They feel so lightweight and compact and feel so much more luxurious than the likes of MAC Paint Pots or Stila Smudge Pots.
Clarins Ombre Cream-to-Powder Matte Eyeshadows Review / Swatches
All three shades have a super soft, smooth and velvety texture with amazing pigmentation.. these swatches are from circling my fingertip just twice in the shadow and without any primer – amazing. I can’t believe how creamy each of the Clarins Ombre shadows are, and they blend effortlessly when applied with either an eyeshadow brush or a fingertip.
I am absolutely besotted with this trio of beautiful-ness, and I’m desperate to add the other three shades to my collection after being blown away by Nude Pink, Rosewood and Sparkle Grey. Not only are they beautiful.. they also pack some serious longevity, with over 8 hours of wear before any evident fading and that’s without using a primer too. There’s not one thing I can criticise about these new Clarins Ombre Cream to Powder Matte Eyeshadows.. they’re as amazing as they sound on paper and more.
