Clarins snuck up on me this holiday season with a lovely Baroque-inspired palette. I've talked about the Baroque period before (with MAC's Baroque Boudoir collection) so I will spare my readers of that discussion and get straight to the palette.
The Curator is baffled as to why the Clarins counters in the U.S. didn't get this lovely little palette. Fortunately I was able to snag it on UK E-bay. Part of the spring 2010 Cotton Flower collection, this powder features pretty branches with fluffy cotton blossoms. Here it is with and without flash:
Naturally I was curious to see if the design was true to a real cotton flower plant, and I think it is!
I love that Clarins had a cotton flower-themed spring collection rather than the crop of roses that appeared everywhere last year. Hopefully they'll have something equally unique for fall.
