Clarins Jade Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Jade (05)

Clarins Jade (05) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes three more greenish-leaning shades with a deeper, contrasting navy blue. All four shades had some shimmer, to them, though they were more satin-to-pearl with finer shimmer that looked more like a soft sheen once applied and blended out on skin. They had semi-opaque to opaque coverage that lasted for eight hours for the most part, though this was nowhere near the 12-hours claimed.

Ingredients

Jade #1

Jade #1 is a medium pewter with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a soft, moderately dense consistency that picked up well with a dry brush but applied more smoothly with a fingertip or a dampened brush as a dry brush yielded light fallout. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” and be “crease-proof” for 12 hours. Most shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, while a few shades–often those with more shimmer–tended to be sheerer compared to the more matte shades.

The consistency felt almost cream-to-powder, as the formula felt more emollient and velvety to the touch without being powdery, which made most of the textures firmer compared to a lot of other formulas on the market. For the most part, this translated to application that didn’t have any fallout and was blendable, but it sometimes required using a slightly heavier-handed approach to pick up product evenly or to get fuller coverage (if desired).

They did not last 12 hours on me, though, which is on the upper end of wear time I’ve gotten out of any powder eyeshadow. Most of the shades lasted between eight and nine hours with a few being shorter-wearing than that range.

Jade #2

Jade #2 is a very light green with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that seemed to “melt” a bit once applied to my skin, so it sat well. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery or too firmly pressed into the pan. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Jade #3

Jade #3 had more of a blackened, navy blue base with lighter navy blue and mid-tone blue pearl that gave it a soft sheen. It had opaque pigmentation, but the texture was firmer and a little stiff to work with, so it took a heavier hand to pick up product evenly. It blended out better than I expected based on the feel of it in the pan, but it could have been easier to diffuse. This shade lasted decently for eight hours before fading visibly.

Jade #4

Jade #4 is a light-medium olive green with muted, warm undertones and a pearl sheen. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The consistency was soft, smooth, and velvety with a firmer press, though it wasn’t stiff to work with. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of wear.
