I have two of these eyeshadows in Nude Pink and Taupe. They have a nice soft texture and apply on smoothly. They have good pigmentation and blend like a dream. Taupe is a great all over the lid colour and Nude Pink is good for blending out.
Clarins is all about matte for Fall, with six cream to powder shades that are a dream to apply. The texture is super silky, but dry feeling, and apply best with fingers, but still blend out with ease. The shade I've been using is Nude Pink, a pale nude with a touch of a pink undertone. I found this to work quite nicely as a shadow on it's own, but it does begin to crease a bit by hour six. When worn as a base, it lasts pretty much all day without budging. On me, the shade doesn't give a lot in terms of actual colour, as it's quite close to my skin tone, but it does give a brightened, perfected look.
