Like Lancôme's Golden Hat palette I struggled with whether to buy this. There is a neat pattern on it, but with no explanation of what it could be or how it relates to Clarins' holiday theme (named "Passion"), I skipped it.
To my eye it looks vaguely pre-Columbian - maybe like an Aztec stamp? Some examples:
So while the pattern is interesting and possibly pre-Columbian inspired, there is no description as to what it is or why it appeared on this highlighter. With a design that unusual there should be some kind of explanation, at least in my opinion. Also, it's not very holiday-ish. Maybe Clarins should have taken a page from these sparkly holiday items - slap some crystals on the palette and call it a day. :P
