Review & Swatches: Clarins Splendours Eyeshadow Palette

This Splendours eyeshadow palette is the sister of the Splendors Summer Bronzing Compact - the two together form the centrepiece of the Clarins Summer 2013 collection.

Like the Summer Bronzing Compact, the eye palette has the most gorgeous packaging - a three dimensional, embossed design which is a bugger to photograph and catches the light beautifully.

Inside the beautiful packaging, you'll find four eyeshadows, one creamy eyeliner, and two brushes.  The shadows and liner are also prettily embossed with a design that echoes the outer packaging.

The colours just scream summer:  metallic copper, sparkling gold, warm brown, and shimmering golden peach.  The eyeliner appears to be black in the pan, but is actually a deep smoky aubergine.

 On the eye, the colours are the usual Clarins fare:  well pigmented but still soft and subtle, making for a look which is flattering rather than OMG EYESHADOW.  The shadows are soft and buttery, and they blend beautifully, although you do need to be careful of fallout as they are very, very soft.

You'll find Clarins Splendours eye palette in store and online now, where it'll cost you £31.


  1. I really want to get my hands on both this palette and the bronzer, they are just so beautiful! Clarins always do the most amazing looking makeup.

  2. I like these colors because I'm really into copper lately- sadly I'm allergic to wearing copper jewelry which I love, so I've taken to wearing copper makeup instead.
