Ever since I received the new Clarins Essentail Eye Make-up Palette ($45), I have been using it every day to try out all of the different colors and combinations. I don't normally wear eye shadow everyday, but in the case of this palette, I seriously couldn't help myself! All ten mineral eye shadow colors colors fit me so well and are universally flattering for everyone. I have gone light by just brushing on a bit of the light beige for a simple day look to going all out for evening. There is a plastic overlay that comes with the palette that numbers all the colors for you and shows you a few different ways on applying, contouring and highlighting your eyes.
This limited edition palette also contains a double sided pony hair brush for great eye-shadow application. I typically never use those tiny applicators from eye palettes but this one is perfectly usable! The whole palette is perfect for travel because this is all you will need for your eyes.
This palette was created as part of Clarins' initiative to minimize our environmental impact, and features carefully-selected materials and reusable packaging. Proceeds from the purchase of this palette will go to planting 10,000 trees in Brazil for medical or cosmetic use, which will help revive the Kuntanawa culture (Amazonia).
Today is also the last day for free shipping! Pick one up for yourself and another one for your mom or BFF for the holidays.
