It used to surprise me when someone would say that I look like their sister or their aunt or their cousin… I guess I have a doppelganger, or several doppelgangers, wandering the earth, and whether they like brown eyeshadow as much as I do, who knows?
If they don’t, though, and you show up on the blog one day, and I’m like, “Bluh! I hate brown eyeshadow!” then you’ll know that one of those doppelgangers has carried out her nefarious plan, and I’m tied up somewhere in a closet.
Each of these new Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palettes ($43 each), which are new for fall/winter 2016 and available now, is made to complement a different eye color. There’s one for brown eyes, one for green eyes and one for blue eyes.
Eyeshadow palettes like these that are designed for a specific eye color are usually rooted in color theory, like, these colors are supposed to make blue eyes appear more blue, or green eyes appear more green, or brown eyes appear more brown, but I don’t know yet. I’ve only just swatched them on my arm, but as far as I can tell, they seem consistent with the Clarins eyeshadows I’ve used before.
They’re on the sheer side, and the shimmer is very Chanel-esque meets Bobbi Brown. Nothing too flash or in your face, but I think that’s the Clarins style, which I like. I like that the shadows are sheer, easy to blend and that they aren’t super intense.
We shall see how it goes. I’m gonna do something with them in the next few days. 🙂
Do you like Clarins? Are there any things in the line that you particularly like?
