Clarins Colour Accents Face and Blush Palette Swatched

Get an instant radiance boost with the limited edition Clarins Colour Accents Face and Blush Palette, the star product of the soon-to-be-launched Clarins autumn make-up collection. Every season Clarins creates one beautiful palette, and this time the bold and feminine geometric design of Colour Accents takes centre stage. Four complimentary shades are infused with a  light-optimising+ complex to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections, while providing an instant radiance boost. Contour, shade and add colour in one simple step!

 

The pressed powder is packaged in the signature pale gold Clarins compact, with its sleek lines and embossed ‘C’. The fairly weighty compact is wrapped up in plush red velvet to protect it from swatches and  fingerprints.

Open up the compact to reveal four harmonious shades of powder in an embossed geometric design. There is zero shimmer – instead, the finish is more of a satin matte. This is ideal for those who struggle with shine yet still want the skin to appear natural. The powder is infused with the same fresh scent of Skin Illusion which makes it such a joy to apply.

 

Three of the colours, which range from a creamy beige to a bronzed beige, are designed to even and brighten the complexion. The fourth, a playful candy pink, is perfect as a blush.

 

When swirled together with a big face brush it provides a flawless all-over finish. The above is swatched heavily to give you an idea of the colour, but a light dusting will provide a more natural-looking translucent result. Clarins says that the powder is ideal for all skin tones, and this is mostly true. Very dark or very pale skinned ladies may struggle to make it work with their skin tones; otherwise I predict that this powder is going to be a big crowd-pleaser.
