Clarins Rosewood (02) 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette

Rosewood (02)

Clarins Rosewood (02) Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a sultry set of smoky, mauve shades housed in a gold-hued compact. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because this an updated, reformulated version, except the colors are more different than not from what I’ve seen (I don’t recall having the original). The formula is a wet/dry formulation that’s supposed to be long-wearing.

The texture is much denser and firmer in the pan (but not stiff or difficult to blend out) with greater pigmentation and a smoother, less powdery/dry finish, even when used dry. They reminded me of formulas like Make Up For Ever’s Artist Shadow but not quite as cream-like. This particular set of shades wore fairly well, but I had some issues with the deepest shade when used dry, as it didn’t adhere as well and looked a bit patchy. I liked the finish and intensity of using the shades with a slightly dampened brush more, personally. They are not too different applied dry or damp in coverage, which is good if you don’t typically bother to use a damp brush!

Rosewood #1

Rosewood #1 is a bright, iridescent pinkish white with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage when applied dry, and it appeared frostier–less smooth in its sheen. When I used it with a dampened brush, the coverage was closer to opaque, and the finish was smoother and more metallic. The texture was soft, a little too dense/firm in the pan but workable. It wore well for just over eight hours both dry and damp on me.

Rosewood #2

Rosewood #2 is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque both wet and dry with the most noteworthy difference seen being the finish, which became smoother and more reflective when applied damp. It had a smooth, firmer texture that was blendable and easy to work with on bare skin. The eyeshadow wore well for eight hours dry and eight and a half hours damp.

Rosewood #3

Rosewood #3 is a medium-dark, silvery taupe with hints of purple and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage applied dry and opaque coverage applied damp. I did not notice much of a difference using it on the lid wet or dry, and the biggest difference was that damp yielded a more metallic finish that lasted a half hour longer (eight and a half hours compared to eight hours dry).

Rosewood #4

Rosewood #4 is a deep plum with warmer undertones and a satiny sheen. It was semi-opaque and a touch lighter when applied dry, and this was the shade that I struggled to blend and diffuse when I used it dry. I also had issues with getting the color to show up true-to-pan without a primer. When I used it with a dampened brush, it was easier to apply and blend out. This shade wore well for eight hours, regardless of whether they were applied dry or wet.
