So it definitely means Christmas is coming when The Essentials arrive from Clarins! This is the 3rd year that Clarins have brought out their 10 shade mineral eyeshadow palette and this one has the most gorgeous duo-chrome purple shade. Here are the swatches of the Clarins Essentials Palette 2015 along with an eye look I did very quickly and easily.
So this is a lovely line up of neutrals with a very pretty pink champagne shade, a super sparkly gold, a range of taupes and browns plus that wonderful purple I have already mentioned.
It is a palette with a conscious because not only have the actual shadows been formulated with minerals to be kind to skin but the packaging itself has been eco-designed. This means reduced volume, recycled cardboard and a reusable palette. There’s also a charity element which I will tell you about at the end. But on to the palette!
Clarins Essentials Palette 2015 Swatches
So this is a wet and dry palette. I actually really like it dry as I am not enjoying anything too intense or heavy on my eyes at the moment, but I have swatches of both coming up for you.
I am absolutely loving the shade combinations and I really liked the soft eye look I created – you can see it in my new beauty news video.
Clarins Essentials Palette 2015 is £35 and launches 1st October 2015. With every purchase of this palette, a tree will be planted in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest to support the Ashaninka Indians in their work to develop local agroforestry resources. Find more information at Clarins online.
