Festive make-up collections are truly wonderful – there’s no finer thing than a limited edition palette! The launch of the seriously indulgent Winter 2010 ‘Barocco’ collection from Clarinsis a lesson in seasonal opulence. The packaging alone is enough to send the range skyrocketing to the top of Christmas wish lists; a mix of elegance and glamour inspired by the richness of Baroque design. The range includes:
Barocco Face Palette, £35.00
Illumination for the complexion comes in the form of this incredibly lightweight powder that comes contained in a beautiful golden compact with black Baroque-esque design. The base sandy colour of the powder evens the complexion beautifully, whilst the pink-toned embossed pattern brightens and infuses a healthy glow.
Barocco Eye Colour Trio, £28
A seriously covetable collection of baked eyeshadows that can be used individually for understated elegance, or to use blended together to create the perfect smoky eye. A rich black shade defines the eye, the middle golden shade with darkened nuances creates a gilded, dark bronze-gold and the last shade is pure, vibrant gold to accent and brighten.
Barocco Gold Shimmer Powder for Face and Décolleté, £29
Every winter collection needs a bit of unadulterated sparkle, and the Barocco collection’s shining star is its Gold Shimmer Powder. The sparkling gold pearls are pure Christmas indulgence, with a luxe black powder puff to apply the shimmer with that will make us feel like old fashioned movie stars. Presented in a beautiful gold and black box, the Gold Shimmer Powder makes such a lovely gift.
Rouge Prodige Lipstick in Barocco, £16
As featured by our very own guest blogger Louise Emma Clarke, the key lip hue this winter is a lovely, rich red tone – and you can’t get much richer or redder than this brand new shade of Rouge Prodige! Long-wearing, supremely comfortable and deeply moisturising, Rouge Prodige delivers a vibrant colour with a beautiful shine.
