Clarins The Essentials Mineral Eye Make-Up Palette

I love this time of year when all of the seasonal make-up collections start to come out and everyone gets excited for those big festive parties! Today, I have the beautiful new Clarins eye shadow palette to share with you guys. All of these shadows are made from minerals and are totally free of nasty-ness, meaning they’re suitable for sensitive skin and eyes.

As you can see from the photograph, all of the colours are beautiful and will work perfectly together. The formula of them is really good too! I think they’d work really well with the cream to powder shadows that I’ve previously reviewed here from the Autumn make-up collection. I can’t help but compare it to the Urban Decay Naked palettes, as I’m sure everyone will. I don’t actually own any of the Naked palettes but I think for around the same sort of price range the Urban Decay palettes look a lot more luxurious and I was slightly disappointed by the packaging of this Clarins palette. I expected something super luxe from them, as their packaging is usually stunning!

  1. Looks fantastic! When I saw the picture on IG I initially thought it was an Urban Decay palette as well. Good to see brands coming out with formulas that are good with sensitive eyes! I’m deff going to look into this 🙂 xoxo

  2. thanks for your review. I’m much intrigued by the Clarins eyeshadows sets, but up until now I haven’t bought any, since I read they’re not enough pigmented and look a bit washed out. Did you notice this effect as well? thanks
