It seems that I might have been getting a plethora of eyeshadow to review lately, which I am absolutely loving even if keeping up on reviews has been a little hard. . One of these such eyeshadows is one from Clarins, a limited edition to be exact, called Tropical Splendor. If you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should if you don’t yet) you’d see that I did use it to create what just might be my favorite look thus far with my turban (remember my blog post about wearing turbans) .
Lets start with the packaging. On the outside the it comes in a red box with the Clarins name and some product information. I wasn’t all that impressed with how it looked but was with the compact inside. It has a gorgeous orange outside with palm leaves on it and is made of a thick plastic. On the inside the palette has four eyeshadows a sponge applicator and a mirror across the top. The colors range from an orange, a brown and two peach tones.
Verdict: While I was really into the compact that this palette came in, the inside was better. Originally I was worried that the colors would work for me but the orange actually looks gorgeous, I feel like my eyes haven’t looked so green before. If you’re wondering about wear time it was very good even without a primer (for some reason I never wear eyeshadow primer). The price is a little high though at $43 considering the amount of product that’s in the palette.
