Clarins Odyssey Eye Quartet Mineral Palette


CLARINS Eye Quartet Mineral Palette Odyssey, Limited edition, luxury Eye Colour* 5.8g £30 link


"A collection of wet and dry formula eye shadow quartets, each containing four toning shades of satin and iridescent long lasting, super silky and blendable eye colour. Presented in Clarins' signature pale gold compact with mirror and two quality foam tipped applicators; one for defining the eye and one for shading and blending."

I can't describe how much I love this palette. I feel in love with it instantly.
Remember when I said that Rosewood palette (review here) was the most beautiful one I have ever seen... 
Well.... This one is even more beautiful! The design on the front is so pretty and unique!
It is a limited edition palette from the Clarins Christmas collection and it is available to buy from October, so if you really want to have it, hurry while stock lasts.

The palette comes in a protective red pouch to keep it safe, since it is too beautiful to get scratched and covered in makeup in my  bag :) I always use the pouch for Clarins palettes to be honest.
You will also find a little card with a guide, showing how to create two looks with the quad.
I tried both, to show you what you can do with just 4 shades.

The quartet consists of three brown shades and a beautiful gold/bronze.
The browns include a very dark matte brown,  medium brown with a bit of shimmer, and more shimmery beige shade which is the lightest colour.
The pigmentation is better than in the Rosewood palette to be honest and the colours are perfect for intense smokey eye , but also for natural day time looks. You can use the shades dry or wet, depending on the colour  intensity you are looking for.
The quad is very versatile and the quality of the eyeshadows is amazing, the texture is soft, they apply beautifully  and have great staying power. (On me they last all day with or without a primer)

Overall, this palette is absolutely beautiful and would make a PERFECT Christmas gift and WOW  women at every age. I am in love with it. It is simply gorgeous.
