2013 Holiday Beauty Gift Pick - Clarins The Essentials Eye Make-up Palette Collector Edition

This holiday season you'll be sure to bring a smile to the face of someone special with this collector edition, Clarins The Essentials Eye Palette.

The first major eye shadow collection from the brand, it contains ten eye shadows that are beautifully crafted and chosen for everything from casual looks, to more dramatic night time creations.  The palette includes a mirror and high quality, double-ended blush for application and blending.

All the shades have a great level of pigment, and smooth and creamy, and are a nice combination of matte and shimmer shades which all work interchangeably together.  Another great feature of this palette is the shades will work to create various nude and nude with a bit of glam - on all skin tones.

From left to right, (pictured, above) the shades are: #1: a soft, yellow toned beige with satin finish.  This has a slightly thicker texture and is best used as a base for the other shades for layering. #2 is a light golden shade with a frost finish. #3 is a medium brown with a bit of red/orange and a frost finish as well. #4 is a medium soft brown with a matte finish. #5 is a medium taupe with a frost finish. #6 is a medium/dark brown with copper and frost finish.  (This was one of my go-to shades, especially paired with a smoky eye.)  #7 is a dark warm chocolate brown with a sheen finish.  This is great to create depth in the socket line, or to line eyes with a wet brush. #8 is a darker taupe shade with cooler undertones and a frost finish. #9 is a dark red-brown shade with a frost finish.  This is another great universal shade.  Finally, #10 is a cool, deep brown with a frost finish.  This is also beautiful with a smoky eye, or as a more glamorous eyeliner. - RLB
