The Muse heard about Clarins Holiday oh…mmm..’bout a month or so ago. My Clarins rep was ever so happy to share the deets about Clarins Holiday 2009 when I kindly asked and I proceeded to drool all over the place. Now at the time I just had a nice little write up about what was coming out but a few days ago I saw the pictures and my jaw dropped.
Clarins Palazzo d’Oro Collection is everything I love about a holiday collection with a heavy emphasis on sparkling golds for a super glamorous look.
Check it after the jump and be prepared to be wowed!
Let me tell you….Clarins Fall 2009 didn’t have any color. Fall 2008 brought us an incredible array of bold, vibrant shades but this year nothing. I was somewhat shocked as I thought I saw a brand new palette that would release but I think this might have been a UK exclusive.
No worries though Clarins makes up for it with the Palazzo d’Oro Collection. The collection is inspired by the light and radiance of the architecture in Venice. Made up of four pieces this collection focuses on an elegant golden look for the Holidays. It’s quite festive in my opinion as I always associate gold and silver with the cooler weather.
- Clarins Golden Attraction Face Palette ($57)
A cocktail of matte and glossy in a soft golden beige to use on face or body for a subtle kiss of gold.
- Clarins Gold Attraction Eye Quartet and Liner Palette ($66)
Sparkling shades of shadow with a dark chocolate liner for defining eyes.
- Clarins Joli Rouge Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick ($23.50)
A golden lipstick for using alone or over stain or lipstick for a sparkling golden sheen.
- Clarins Sparkling Wonder Volume Mascara ($23.50)
Clarins traditional Wonder Mascara with a touch of golden shimmer.
Overall, the collection is a stunner for me. So far it’s the best Holiday Collection within the US I’ve had the pleasure of setting eyes on. I’m loving the warm shades of gold on the model and love how it’s both elegant and has a certain festive feel.
Clarins was even so kind as to include a step by step guide for creating a few looks with the palette.
