Clarins Barocco Collection for Holiday 2010 really embraces the spirit of a good, traditional Holiday Collection with plenty of gold in the mix and bright, vibrant red lips. Out of all the collections I’ve been reviewing and discussing lately it’s probably one of my favorite launches to date because it combines great elegance with a time-honored Holiday feel.
Although we discussed it briefly earlier this Fall, I’d like to bring it to the front of our minds today for another peek! Plus it helps that Clarins is having their Friends and Family Event this week so hey, 20% off quality makeup? Can I hear a hells yes?
- Clarins Barocco Rouge Prodige Lipstick $24
A special shade for this collection—a deep purple velvet, for a glamorous and sophisticated look for the holidays. Housed in the new lipstick case with a black scroll on the front of the lid.
- Clarins Barocco Eyeshadow Trio $40
A palette of three eyeshadows presented in a black rectangular case with a glossy white-gold lid decorated with a black scroll.
- Clarins Barocco Shimmering Gold Powder $35
A powder formed into gold-dusted nuggets presented in an elegant black cylinder, decorated with a black scroll and embellished with a beautiful tassel. The delicate powder nuggets are nestled in with an elegant black powder puff.
- Clarins Barocco Face Powder Palette $55
An incredibly soft and lightweight compact powder, presented in an elegant case: a harmony of two complementary shades are stamped into the powder in the emblematic scroll pattern.
The Barocco Collection is available now at us.clarins.com
Just a warning do not order the Shimmering Gold Powder online. I ordered it for a friend and it arrived broken thanks to my wonderful mailman, heavy sarcasm. I sent it back and Clarins happily sent another and again, it arrived broken. I suggest heading to a counter to get this because the “nuggets” are very delicate and jostle during shipment.
You can get 20% off your total using CLARINSFF.
