Valentine’s Day might be over, but I’m still not ready to give up my pinks and reds just yet! Clarins recently added the Lovely Rose 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00) to their collection for spring and I couldn’t be more in love! I don’t see a pink-themed eyeshadow palette very often, so I was very excited when I saw this little cutie. All four shades are very stunning and feminine, and complement one another perfectly.
The palette is slim and small, but looks chic and elegant with its sleek gold packaging. There are four mineral eye colors on the inside: a pearly light pink, a satin coral with microscopic golden shimmers, a matte cool-toned orchid, and a satin eggplant with fine teal and copper glimmers.
These eyeshadows have a softer pigmentation than I expected, so if you’re looking for a subtle pop of color on the eyes, then you’ll really enjoy their subtlety, but if you want a more vibrant payoff, then you can definitely build up the intensity or apply the colors wet to amp up their brightness. They’re easily workable as they layer nicely and blend beautifully, and have no streakiness or unevenness to give a delightfully smooth and even application. I experienced no creasing with these colors and they wore well during the six hours that I had them on. Overall, I love the color scheme and enjoy the effortlessness and longevity of these eyeshadows. It’s definitely one of my favorite products from Clarins in my collection.
I created this really romantic pink smokey eye look using the four eyeshadows from the quad and added some glitter in the center of the lids for a sparkly touch; glossy pink lips completed the look.
