Clarins/Pretty Day & Pretty Night Autumn 2015 Make Up Collection

I've been holding off on this post, not because these products aren't worthy of a review*, quite the opposite in fact, I just didn't want to accept it's now time to switch our make up to autumnal hues, although after reviewing these beauties I'm actually annoyed I didn't start using them sooner.

So whats the concept behind this years collection from Clarins?

As always Clarins really have gone all out to bring you a collection that can take you from day to night, in just a few products, focusing mostly on the eyes, and designing a capsule collection to take you from office to dinner in just a few luxurious products.
The stars in this collection are the Pretty Day & Pretty Night eye shadow palettes, whilst I haven't been reviewing them I can confirm both are very pretty indeed, the day one gives you all you need to create a soft, warm sophisticated look combining pinks, beige, and some browns.

The Night palette will give you those more sultry darker tones perfect for creating my fave shadow look, the smokey eye!

There have been two new Ombre Matte shadows added, I adore these shadows and what I love the most is that actually your getting two in one in each pot as they can be used dry, but dip your brush into a little water and watch the results intensify, super pigmented and satin soft these are both must haves for the autumn ahead.

The left is the gorgeous Heather and the far left swatch is the dry shadow, the right the wet.
The right hand shot shows the lovely Carbon shadow, I'm already addicted to this it's super blendable and look at the intensity when applied wet too, this would be perfect for lining the eyes.

No look is complete without a good lipcolour right?
For me I don't feel 'finished' until I've applied something on my lips, I am loving both of these shades, new additions to the Rouge Eclat range so your still getting the super moisturizing formula you know and love.

Say hello to Red Paprika & Tawny Rose, gorgeous. I think both shades are really wearable no matter your skin tone, and I'd never have gone for the Red Paprika but actually I adore it.
To complete this collection there are two brow pencils and two kohl liners, all available now over on the Clarins Website and at counters nationwide.

Although I hate the cold seasons I am very much looking forward to embracing these warm tones.

Which pieces will you be treating yourself to?
