The Make-Up: Clarins Graphic Expressions Make Up Collection




We can't deny it, Autumn and Winter is coming and you can feel it in the air. That means the hunt for a new winter coat is on and I'm rushing around trying to find my favourite berry lipsticks. This summer I stuck to peachy, coral, pink shades so I'm craving something darker. When Clarins Graphic Expressions make up collection arrived on my door step, it satisfied all those cravings. Clarins always bring out one of the best collections, A/W didn't let me down.

It starts out with Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in Forest*, a eyeshadow palette what can be used wet or dry. I'm not one to use eyeshadows wet, but I can bet that the bronze shade would be beautiful when applied wet. On my eyes today, I've used three of the colours, all except the green taupe shade as I'm still figuring out how to wear that. All the shades are very earthy, reflecting the autumn months. The eyeshadows are buttery and very pigmented. I only found that with the lightest shade, it's basically just a lot glitter, I was expecting more of a highlight shade. Never the less, I applied it over the whole lid to finish it and it give it a 'glitterball' effect. Along with the eyes, there is two new Crayon Khol shades in Intense Blue* and Bronze*. I've applied the bronze shade along the upper lash line, ever so slightly just to give it a bit more depth. I've been wearing the eyeliners on their own just to give my lash line a little something more, rather than just mascara.

For the lips, there is two Joli Rouge Lipsticks in Royal Plum* and Spicy Cinnamon*. They're very hydrating and long lasting colour lipsticks, which can be applied quite sheer but are able to be built up to an intense shade. I'm wearing Royal Plum here, applied quite sheer as my skin tone doesn't suit something very dark.

What is your favourite A/W make up collection this year?
