Clarins Ombre Cream Eyeshadow – Review

I’ve lusted after these for some time now. The packaging is divine & the swatches are glorious. I’m a bog fan of cream eye shadows & was keen to try out some higher end versions. I picked out 10 Silver Grey and 07 Silver Plum.

Claims: Cream-to-powder eye shadow.  A major formula innovation, Clarins cream eye colours combine the smoothing effects of a cream with the long-wear of a powder.  
A silky, light-weight eyeshadow that smoothes on like a cream and transforms into a long-lasting powder upon application.

The packaging on these is utterly divine. They’re the kind of product I’d be proud to display on my vanity.

These pictures don’t show the true shades, especially in the pots. The finger swatches below are more accurate. They are both sooooo pigmented. I just kept twisting my wrist admiring them in the different light like a magpie!

One is a silver in the truest sense & the other is a mauvey bronzey rosey goldy 🙂

But unfortunately that’s where the love affair ends. They go on the lid beautifully & are very exciting. But within an hour I have some serious crease-age going on. I’m sure you could set these down in some way but I feel that defeats the purpose.

I have Maybelline Color Tattoo’s that don’t budge or crease for the day for at least half the price and would highly recommend them.

Have you tried these? Have you made them work? I’ve tried them both a number of times & would give anything to make them last as they are stunning on initial application. Any & all help would be greatly appreciated! (I have hooded eyes if that makes a difference)
