Clarins | Aquatic Treasures Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadow

There is just something about a limited edition product that sucks you into buying it. Maybe because it won't be there on the shelves for long. They do sell out rather quickly, but I feel that brands/companies make them so lustfully gorgeous that you just cannot turn away. Stunning packaging and intricate details embossed right onto the product itself... just wow!

Take for example, the newly launched Clarins Aquatic Treasures collection for Summer 2015. Although I did manage to tear my eyes away from their gorgeous bronzer, I couldn't resist picking up a couple of their cream eye shadows because... I just couldn't! I mean, look at that sleek packaging; corresponding to the color inside - so luxe, isn't it? They are called Aquatic Rose and Aquatic Green. Sea-green color is biiig this year for summer, and Clarins has also launched a green colored mascara and an equally mesmerizing jewel-toned eye liner pencil in this line.

Aquatic Rose has the most subtle peachy-rose tint with heaps of silver shimmer that does not look tacky when blended out. I have never seen a more beautiful shimmery rosey champagne shade in my life. Initially I thought it would be too cool for my skin tone but it is neutral once worn. However, I do believe it will look a tad bit better on cooler tones than it does on my warm one. This gives a great wash of color that looks beautiful when worn on its own or even in combination with any other eye shadow! 

Aquatic Green, on the other hand, is officially my new favorite green eye shadow ever. It is an intense mermaid-green shade with silver shimmer. It might not be an everyday shade if you are a 'nude/natural/no-makeup makeup' lady but it is a great shade to sizzle up an evening date or on a music festival weekend.

Both shades are moderately pigmented and have a wear time of 7 hours on me. NO creasing at all. The formula is creamy, can be easily sheered out and does not cake either when you layer it on for more intensity. If I had to recommend you a great pinky champagne color for everyday wear, I'd totally urge you to stock up on the Rose shade, its amaaazing! 

Priced at KWD 8 each, these are available at all VaVaVoom, Harvey Nichols stores across Kuwait. Limited Edition, mind!

  1. I'm a huge Clarins fan (skincare) but never really take any notice in their makeup section.
    These eyeshadow pots look AMAZING.. Not sure if they are in the UK though :( x

    1. They are in the UK as well, but since they're limited edition, they would probably be sold out by now. I'm really liking Clarins makeup at the moment, skin care is no doubt one of the best in the market! x
