Clarins Essentials Palette 2014

Clarins Essentials Palette- £35*

Now that we're in November I can finally start sharing some exciting Christmas releases with you. There's one thing that always makes the perfect gift for a beauty junkie, and that's a new make-up palette. Clarins always bring out a new eyeshadow palette for Christmas and this year is no exception. 

The new Essentials palette from Clarins is mixture of 10 beautiful mattes, satins and pearl shades and is so perfect for the party season. You know by now that I love a brown smokey eye and I adore the shades in this palette as you have the usual browns and pale nude shades but there is also a beautiful red/purple shade. I love using this colour all over the lid as I think it looks amazing with bluey green eyes. My other favourite shade is the gold chunky glitter one as the colour pay off is amazing and actually sits beautifully on the lid.

The palette comes with a small mirror and a double ended brush, I'm not a huge fan of the packaging as it looks and feels a little flimsy but the shadows are lovely. The shadows are pressed pigments so can be used both wet and dry for different effects. I prefer the shades in the second half of the palette as I think they have a little more colour pay off. 

The Essentials Palette is available online and in store now at Debenhams, House of Fraser and John Lewis for £35.
