I’m a sucker for pretty things, including gorgeous makeup packaging. Let’s just take that a step farther, I’m a sucker for gorgeous makeup. So, when a makeup product has beautiful packaging, looks amazing in the compact and on my face it’s a beauty trifecta. That’s exactly what I hit — the beauty trifecta — with Clarins Opalescence Face & Blush Powder. It looks good in the compact and even better on me!
Here are the details about :
Illuminating news! Three silky powders to mix and merge for a warm, sun-kissed glow. Exclusive holographic compact.

Let me first say that upon first glance at this beautiful powder, yes, it’s pretty, but will the predominantly beige powder work on my brown skin. There are dots of darker brown, a little cranberry and some gold swirled in as well. As it turns out, yes, this luminous powder is just gorgeous on my skin. It even’s my tone, with or without foundation. It’s sheer yet gives skin a velvety matte finish. The brown can be used to create a little contour and the coral is perfect for adding color to my cheeks.
