Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Review – Well, it’s not a secret that I love Clarins, they’re a wonderful brand and you can count on them for quality!
I actually thought I’d written about this as I’ve used it in a make-up video which I’ve linked below, it’s a NEW addition to the ever-growing Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Collection and I’d go as far as saying that this is a go-to colour from the whole collection….you’ll get so much use out it!
Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Review – Packaging
In true Clarins style, this comes packaged in the lovely little red box, kinda like the little green box from Tiffany’s! 🙂
Inside you’re greeted by a cute little pot with a gold lid – it’s touches like this that make a product go from OK to luxurious and Clarins always falls into the high-end luxurious market, in my opinion!
Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Review – Colour
In this post and what I’m using in the video which you can see below is colour CARBON 07 which is rich black.
It’s a highly pigmented eye shadow and a little product goes a very long way!
Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Review – Texture
Sometimes people say it’s weird that I write about the texture of an eye shadow but most of you enjoy reading about it so I’ll do what I feel is right! 🙂
The texture of the Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow is rather unique – at first, I thought it would be like a cream eye shadow but as you can see in the picture below, it’s a pressed powder.
When you dip your eye shadow brush into the product it still looks (and acts) like a powder however when you apply it to your eyes it turns into a silky power – not a creamy powder but a silky powder…..I hope this makes sense haha!
It glides onto your skin beautifully and like I mentioned above, you only need a little amount as it’s highly pigmented so a little goes a very, very long way…
Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Review – How to Use
You all know that I love multi-use products, it just makes things so much easier and it’s absolutely perfect if you travel too!
- Use it as eyeliner
- Use it as eyeshadow
As you’ll be able to see in the video which is linked below, I’m using it as an eyeliner.
If you’re like me you can line your upper lash line for daytime makeup and have this in your bag so if you have somewhere to go add some shadow to the outer corners and create a lovely, classic smokey eye with your liner already done 😉
Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadow Review – Lasting Power
As with all Clarins products – it’s great!
There’s nothing to worry about with the lasting power of their products – it’ll look just as good at the end of the day as it did when you first applied it in the morning! 🙂
