Clarins’ Fall 2014 collection introduces something to the market that I’ve seen only very rarely: wet powder eyeshadows in a matte finish. (I feel like I’ve been waiting for this moment for years.) Ladylike pairs subtle mattes with creamy nude lips for an “ultra feminine” look — and the collection looks beautiful.
I know I don’t usually do collection previews, but you guys, this one looks so pretty. I couldn’t help myself.
