Since I saw the promo image of Clarins Christmas 2013 The Essentials Palette the other day I knew I had to make it part of my collection. Being a limited edition eyeshadow palette will be sold out pretty fast as most of Clarins items are so there won’t be time to start saving money once this item is on the counters.
Many would say the new Holiday 2013 Essentials Palette is pretty much resembling the well know Urban Decay Naked Palette except the shades because they do look like purple base and not nudes or neutrals. I really need a good couple of new purple shades in my collection so I started dreaming instantly once I saw the photo.
International Launch Date – October 2013 at Sephora, Douglas, Marionnaud
BritishBeautyBlogger woke me up from my dream earlier today when she posted swatches of Clarins Essentials Palette on her blog. You’ll have to go check out her article and see for yourselves why I’m so disappointed now after I’ve seen the swatches. Where all the purple shades from the promo photo disappeared? Is it just me or this palette looks more like nude and neutral once swatched and nothing like the purple shades we were promised in the promo picture?
What do you think lovelies?
