Clarins Holiday Palette

Press sample


New from Clarins, ‘The Essential’ Eye Palette takes neutral eyeshadows to next-level luxury and sophistication. This beautiful palette is perfect for gift-giving….and you might want to grab one for yourself! Read on for more…

I’ve always thought Clarins products— color cosmetics or skincare, to be of excellent quality, largely because of attention to detail. That attention to detail is evident in ‘The Essentials’ Eye Palette. The palette includes 10 mineral eyeshadows in various finishes of matte, satin and pearl. The neutral shades include beige, taupe and brown tones that are the backbone of any woman’s makeup bag.


One of the things that sets ‘The Essentials’ Palette apart, in addition to the richly pigmented quality of the eyeshadows, is the guide that comes with it. The clear plastic guide has 2 eyes drawn on it, with the numbers of the shades in the palette that you can use to create a daytime and nighttime look. In playing with it, I found that guide to be really helpful–kind of your own eye chart to use for inspiration. One more note on the eyeshadows; the texture and finish are beautiful. ‘The Essentials’ Palette is housed in an elegant box with a convenient mirror on the inside. A dual-ended eco-friendly brush is also included.

Clarins ‘The Essentials’ Palette ($45) will be available this month in department stores and on This is one not to miss!
