Clarins recently released their spring makeup line and I had the privilege of trying out the new collection after a seeing a demonstration at Bloomingdale's last month where I learned just how universally flattering a green eye can be. While I typically think of Clarins as a a brand that embodies natural beauty, this is the second year in a row that their spring makeup releases have stunned me with their vivid colors. Last year it was purple, this year it's green, and both have pulled me out of my neutral eyeshadow comfort zone.
The gorgeous Garden Escape Eye Palette features shades of green, pink, and taupe and pairs perfectly with the Kohl Eye Pencil in Intense Green and Illuminating Blush Palette. It creates a fresh, garden party inspired look that's pretty and feminine for spring, though I've also used the dark greens for a smoky winter night out eye. These colors are limited edition this spring so be sure to scoop them up in time for warmer weather.
