Clarins makeup is one of my favorites because if you don't know already, this famous French brand of skincare also puts their wonderful plant-based ingredients in their makeup too! I am loving the new Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette ($43 at Clarins USA). These palettes are luxurious and the colors last all day. I have two of the palettes: Nude and Rosewood. (There is also a perfect neutral Brown palette.) Rosewood has all the colors I've been loving from the summer and remind me of the Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadows from spring (see post here) that I have been wearing a lot these last few months. Now I have the perfect eye look in a portable and travel friendly palette.
The eye quad comes with a luxurious red velvet pouch and also has a small card inside on how to apply the colors.
The colors are really soft and buildable and I love the shades for both of these eye palettes. I see myself using these on rotation in the coming months and they will be perfect for my travel bag when I go to France this Christmas.
Here are the colors for Nude in natural sunlight by the window.

Now onto something really cool! Now for fall, Clarins has updated their formula for their Double Fix Mascara ($25 at Clarins USA). I didn't know that I needed this in my life, until I started to use it. This is a clear gel formula that works double duty as a topcoat for your mascara to make it waterproof. It also is perfect for your brows to keep those brows tamed and looking good! I have been loving this for my eyebrows -- it's something I have needed for ages it feels like! Now I never have to worry about some of my longer brows getting unruly.
