Clarins Barocco Face Powder: I'm in Love!Tuesday, November 30, 2010
See how pretty that powder is? I'm afraid to use/touch it, it's so pretty, I just don't want to spoil it.
The real reason this item is so luxurious is definitely the packaging. It comes in a red velvet pouch (not pictured) and the case really must weigh about 5 pounds. It has the same design on it, but in black and metal, and the entire thing closes with the most satisfying click! Truly, you'll want to find excuses to use it over and over just to show this off.
The powder is a combination of a beige and a slightly shimmery pink-peach color. Together, they essentially make a basic translucent powder. The powder does a great job of keeping me matte and it would work for a big range of lighter complected girls. The shimmer is almost nonexistent once the powder is applied, so it would be appropriate for every day. I only wish that it came with a puff or small brush for touch ups on the go.
In the meantime, the packaging had me at hello! It's absolutely amazing in person, and I'm looking for the perfect travel brush to pair it with in my purse. I don't care how heavy it is, I'll be taking this compact with me everywhere!
