Brown smokey eye looks are always a popular demand for many women because it suits
almost everybody! Clarins came out with a very interesting and innovative product that
smokey-eye-addicts will LOVE! These eyeshadow pots aren’t just regular eyeshadow’s,
they’re on a whole other level!
CLARINS Cream-to-Powder Matte Eyeshadow
Swatches from top to bottom:
#01 nude beige // #02 nude pink // #03 taupe
#04 rosewood // #05 sparkle grey // #06 earth
The first two swatches (No. 01 & 02) don’t really show because they’re very
similar to my skin tone. Both have a matte and powdery finish and I love highlighting
my brow bone and tear duct with it. The texture of these eyeshadow’s are really
interesting and I have never seen anything like it before. It’s described as a ”Cream-
Powder” texture with a matte finish. It definitely looks powdery on the eyes but some
how it feels like a mousse.
I love all 6 shades and you can create some beautiful looks with them but I’m mostly
impressed by the bottom three shades (No. 4, 5 & 6). The pigmentation is pretty
amazing and these are the shades I mainly use for my daily eye make-up. I wasn’t
expecting that at all from Clarins since they always come out with quit sheer products.
The eyeshadows are easy to blend by using a regular eyeshadow blending brush and the
colours are build able. I also looooove the fact that they all (except for #5) have a matte
The eyeshadows last all day long (depending on which eye primer you’re using) it
doesn’t fade away after a while and the pigmentation remains vibrant. If you love
wearing brown smokey eyes then these eyeshadows are definitely worth trying out!
