If you treat yourself to one thing this Christmas, it should be this - The Clarins Odyssey Eye Quartet. There are definitely makeup products that I have lusted after before, but this was something else entirely. Whether it was the sleek and luxurious design of the packaging or the stunning colours it contains, I just had to have it.
As you can see, the palette is designed beautifully. I was actually expecting it to be heavy, but it's really nice and lightweight, a palette which I'd definitely travel with. The Odyssey Face Palette is another stunner from the collection, retailing at £35.
It contains four colours - a champagne shade with a touch of shimmer, two browns and a gorgeous gold leaf shadow that can add just a hint of sparkle during the day, or can be glammed up for a dramatic nighttime look. I haven't actually used any other eyeshadow since I got this, I love it that much!
Better yet, all of the shadows contain lovely pigmentation and I've found that they last on the lids all day with minimal creasing. I think this is the star of the Christmas collections currently on offer, and I'll be checking out Clarins products in far more detail in future.
What are your thoughts on the Odyssey palette? Is this something you could justify £30 on?
