Clarins Graphik Collection for Autumn 2017

If there is one makeup brand that always delivers their seasonal collections, it's Clarins and the Graphik collection for Autumn 2017 is no different. Available from the end of August, the collection comprises of six different products in a range of shades so you're bound to find something you'll love, the eyeshadow quad is what has my heart beating. 

Get ready...

Think dramatic eyes, pinky cheeks and beautiful green tinted lids and you've got the Graphik collection. There are three new shades of Joli Rouge Lipstick (£20.00) in the collection, a deep red, sultry pink and pinky nude each with an ultra moisturising formula to help give smoother, fuller and softer looking lips. The bullet hugs to your lip during application and leaves a pretty satin finish that will see you into the colder months and (eek) festive season. I can see that red rocking many a Christmas party.

There are also two Lipliner Pencils (£17.50) to accompany the lipsticks in a red and pink, perfectly matching the lip shades in the collection. The liners are enriched with jojoba oil helping them create the perfect line and colour for lipstick application.  

My favourite item from the Graphik collection is the 4-Colour Eyeshadow Quad in Forest (£34.00), not something I'd usually go for but the rich greens, silky nude and dark greys just pulled me in. The shadows are enriched with pigment minerals and are suitable for use, wet or dry. I have a few of the eyeshadow quads already and love reaching for them as they have everything you need inside for a beautifully blended eye look. The longevity is also great for day or night, I need my eye look to hold and I always know it will with these shadows from Clarins. 

The product I was most intrigued about was the Ombre Matte in Midnight Blue (£19.00), a cream to powder formula which delivers a smooth effect on to the skin. The lightweight shadow smooths onto skin leaving an even, matte finish. I was surprised at how well it applied as I'm really not a cream fan but I needn't have worried, it was super easy and gave just the finish I wanted. Midnight Blue is absolutely stunning and really pops alongside a dramatic black flick and dark lashes, it's going to be a festive season staple.

The very last product I've been playing with is the Graphik Ink Liner (£21.00). Now, I hold my hands up and admit I am terrible at eye liner and feline flicks but I may have just found the tool I've been needing. The liner pen has a carbon pigment filter for the blackest of black lines, helping contour the eye area for the perfect look. The tip is soft, doesn't drag on skin and is much like a felt tip so application is a breeze. If I can master a perfectly applied line with this, then anyone can! There is also a pretty pink blush palette available in the Graphik Collection which is absolutely beautiful in the shade Golden Pink, keep an eye out for it.

Is there anything that has caught your eye in the Graphik Collection?
