Tried and tested: Clarins eyeshadow palettes

AFTER a hugely- successful relaunch of the Joli Rouge lipsticks, Clarins are hoping for a repeat with the new 4-Colour Eyeshadow palettes, €43.

The three palettes — 01 Nude, 02 Rosewood and 03 Brown — each contains four complementary colours in a mixture of matte and satin finishes.

And with the understated shades, comfortable finish and classic mirrored packaging, this will likely prove a hit with the older beauty lover — as long as they don’t mind a hint of shimmer.

01 Nude has a mix of two peachy natural shades which will bring brightness to the lid with a grey and black for extra definition, while 03 Brown contains four cool muddy-brown tones, perfect for a classic smoky eye.

02 Rosewood is perhaps the most interesting with its stand-out rose gold shade — but with two purple-toned shadows. While perfect for a night out, it may not be ideal for everyday wear.

All colours are buildable — plus, you can wet them to increase intensity, allowing for a variety of looks.

So while these aren’t going to blow anyone away, they’re definitely a solid investment.

Available at Clarins stockists nationwide from July 24.


The rose gold jewellery trend just extended to skincare, and Origins’ Energising products promises to perk up complexions a treat. 

Like molten bronze, the GinZing Peel-Off Mask (€32) refines and polishes skin, while the GinZing refreshing eye cream 15ml (€29) adds radiance and helps to soothe puffy eyes. 


Buying enough sun cream to last the length of a holiday can be expensive, but the Solait Family Pack, €18.65 Superdrug, represents excellent value for money. 

Comprising three levels of SPF protection and a tube of aftersun, the four-pack will keep the whole family protected.
