The new Clarins Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Iridescent Eyeshadow in Silver Plum (no. 07) was released earlier this year as a part of the Spring 2016 Collection. This is a gorgeous purple taupe, a deep smokey lavender with a silver undertone.
Clarins have blended iridescent, soft-focus pigments with bamboo powder for stay-true brilliance and long-lasting wear. A Vitamin E derivative keeps lids comfortable. Casts a soft, pearlescent glow during the day; a stylized, high-voltage iridescence at night.
This shadow combines the ease and comfort of a cream with the long wear if a powder. It’s gives a sparkling not glittery finish. It is very smooth and the texture in the little pot is a cross between the Chanel Ombres and the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. This shadow does hold up on for at least 8hrs with or without a cream base with minimal creasing. I do however always use an eyeshadow primer due to my oily lids.
These shadows are gentle enough for sensitive eyes and are dermatologist- and ophthalmologist-tested.
