I've been dying to blog about the Clarins Odyssey Christmas collection since I first received it roughly two months ago! I decided to wait until it hit counters to feature it, so it should be out by now.
In true festive style, these palettes are beautifully decorated and contain a good amount of glitter and sparkle.
The eye palette is not at all gimmicky, it contains some amazing shades and I already get so much use out of this. There's a lovely soft brown with a subtle shimmer, an incredible gold leaf shade, a darker, richer brown and a soft, cool beige. I wear all of these shades, they're easy to apply and blend together really well. I often wear the beige shade and the soft brown all over the lid and then smoke it up at night with the richer brown. The gold leaf shade makes this palette, it adds a really subtle shimmer to the eye in small chunks of gold. It doesn't fall down the face and the staying power is impressive.
This palette has quickly become one of my favourites, despite my reluctance to ruin how beautiful it looks in pan. The shades are all really wearable and they're shades I would pick for myself anyway. This is definitely a product that everyone should own in my opinion!
Next up is this incredible Face Palette - it took me a while to persuade myself to use this as it's so beautiful! This is the highlighter of all highlighters, it's really finely milled to give your skin an airbrushed glow. I always think subtle highlighters help to cover pores and imperfections and give your cheeks (and any other places you apply, such as nose, brow bone etc.) a really polished, radiant finish.
Overall, these are two products that should go on every girls wishlist for Christmas! They eye palette is my current favourite and I don't own anything else like this, it's a lovely treat and such a plush item to own. The face palette is really beautiful, my skin looks so flawless and glowing after use.
