Clarins The Essentials Mineral Eye Make-Up Palette | Review

The Limited Christmas Palette this year is a scrumptious collection of ten pressed mineral powder eyeshadows, presented in a way not dissimilar to one of the Naked Palettes. The shadows are housed in a cardboard box, held together by an elastic. I'm not hugely happy with the lack ok a click or magnetic closure, and the plastic tray inside makes the packaging somewhat disappointing. However, the brush is of good enough quality, and the first swatch of the shadows showed them to be silky and blendable. A couple of the lightest colours are less pigmented than I would wish, but the mid-tones are beautiful. The real winner in this palette is the bright gold shade near the centre of the palette - it's a little chunky, but with a good primer and careful application, it makes for the most amazing Christmas-party look. The shadows are long-lasting with my usual primer, and not prone to creasing. The range of shades is great for a neutral lover like me, and I think this would make a lovely Christmas gift for any eye-shadow lover.
