Clarins Odyssey Eye Quartet Palette - Limited Edition

 
"A collection of four harmonious, long-wearing eye colours with a silky-smooth, mineral texture. Multiple effects, apply dry for natural results or damp for a more sophisticated effect."
 
*Clarins Odyssey Eye Quartet Palette, Limited Edition, £30
 
How beautiful is this product?
 This is the eyeshadow palette from Clarins Limited Edition Christmas Collection, it comes in a classic red Clarins box and inside you'll find a beautiful golden, embellished palette in a luxurious red velvet pouch to prevent scratches and a little card with ideas on how to use it. Open it up and you have four beautiful shades to play with - all contain shimmer. There's a subtle creamy taupe, a mid tone ashy brown, a deep charcoal brown and then the beautiful gold leaf shadow that steals the show. I haven't ever used a gold eyeshadow like this, it's shimmery, a true gold colour and contains chunky flakes of gold leaf. You all need to go out and swatch it! The palette also has a decent sized mirror and comes with two small, gold applicators - one is a standard applicator and the other is pointed for more precise application.
All four eyeshadows are creamy, well pigmented, long lasting, blend easily and are just a delight to use! You're able to use these either dry, or wet for a more intense look and I find these four shades really versatile. If I want a natural look I'll use all but the golden shade and then if I want a more intense look then I'll add in more of the darker brown and the gold leaf.
 
I am so in love with this!
Not only is it beautifully packaged but the product itself is great quality and it's a welcomed addition to my make-up collection. This palette will set you back £30, which in all honesty I would happily pay for such a stunning product. I have the Odyssey Face Palette on my Christmas Wishlist after seeing featured it on Belles Boutique!
