Clarins takes inspiration from the Greek Goddesses this Christmas presenting two limited edition compacts – the face palette and the Eye Quartet.
Odyssey Face palette – Price £35
Ideal for all skin tones, it is a silky smooth compact powder to enhance the complexion by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections. Well have you seen a Greek Goddess without even and radiant skin?
The compact is embossed with a tactile circular medallion design and so is the actual powder. The raised parts of the engraved edges and scrolls on the powder shimmer with gold coloured mother-or-pearl making you hesitate to ruin such a gorgeous design – but for the sake of transferring this shimmering effect on to your face and neck to create a luminous beauty it must be done! This shimmer is on the top only so I’d save the first couple of applications for the Christmas parties. After the shimmer has gone, you can use the powder for everyday coverage.
Odyssey Eye Quartet Mineral Palette – Price £30
Four long wearing eye colours which can be used dry for a natural day look or slightly damp for a more intense evening look.
The brown and beige shades can be blended for a natural look or layered for a soft smoky touch. The taupe bronze adds a subtle shimmer whilst the gold leaf highlight is the Christmas shining star and will add a touch of gold sparkle to the festivities.
Presented in a gold compact with mirror and foam tipped applicator.
|To perfect the Greek Goddess look the above model matches the Odyssey collection with:|
|Gloss Prodige lip Gloss – Price £15.50
It has a smooth gel like texture which is non sticky.
There are eight shades to choose from, ranging from nude to the darker blackberry. Try not to lick your lips too much as they have a delicious flavour with notes of blackcurrant and liquorice.
Ambrosia and Nectar may be the food and drink of the gods, but I’m sure chocolate was a favourite of the goddesses. Here the lip gloss shade used on the model and shown in the image is of course Chocolate
|Instant Definition Mascara – Price £20
This mascara is for adding intense colour and volume to every lash.
Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
It comes in the usual black and brown colours but also in an eye catching plum and blue.
|Instant Liner – Price £20
A liquid eyeliner for a precise long lasting line.
Includes a soft supple foam applicator.
Available only in black.
With the help of Clarins Odyssey, it’s time to bring that inner goddess out for all to see!
