Clarins Brown (03) Eyeshadow Palette

Brown (03)

Clarins Brown (03) Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.20 oz.) is consists of four powder eyeshadows that are supposed to be usable both wet and dry and have long-wearing results. I think that, despite being a neutral palette, it is not quite as dupable as is typical, because there is a lot less warmth coming from orange tones. It’s also more subdued, which may make it an easy to wear palette for some.

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!

Brown #2

Brown #2 is a muted, medium brown with subtle, sallow yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation both wet and dry, but the damp application yielded slightly darker, smoother pigmentation overall. The texture was denser, more cream-like, and had no powderiness at all, but I didn’t have any issues picking up the color with my eyeshadow brush. It wore well for seven hours dry, seven and a half hours damp.

Brown #3

Brown #3 is a medium-dark brown with subtle, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It wasn’t necessary to use the eyeshadow damp, as it was richly pigmented dry already, though damp application gave it a smoother, more metallic finish. The texture was smooth, blendable, and easy to work with on bare skin. This shade wore nicely for eight hours both wet and dry.

Brown #4

Brown #4 is a dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff both wet and dry, and the biggest difference was how the color appeared darker and cooler applied damp. The consistency felt firmer than desired, so it did take a little extra work to get the color out of the pan. If I used a flat, synthetic brush, I had better results initially than using a natural eyeshadow brush. I noticed signs of fading after eight hours (both wet and dry).
