This fall, Clinique decided to put the focus on the eyes with shadows and liners that have brilliant colour and long wear for a look that pops. With the introduction of two new products – Clinique All About Shadow and Clinique All About Shadow Primer For Eyes – and new shades of the Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense, it’s easy to find the perfect shades to make your eyes stand out.
Clinique All About Shadow is the perfect addition to any beauty lover’s makeup kit and comes in so many different options and shades that I think everyone can find exactly what they are looking for. This shadow is offered in Singles, Duos and Quads so you can easily find a combination that suits you. They also come categorized by nudes, goldens to greens, pinks and blues & violets to make it easy to find the shades that look best on your skin tone. Another thing that I really like about these shadows is that they range from matte to shimmery in finish.
I really love the feeling of these shadows – they feel like a combination of both creamy and silky which means they are extremely smooth. I love the handy guides that come with the duos and quads which help you take the guesswork out of application for those of you who aren’t quite sure how to use the shades together.
Clinique All About Shadow Primer for Eyes is the perfect companion for any of the All About Shadow shades or any other shadows in your collection. It reminds me of a concealer in texture – goes on smoothly and blends in very well. It is available in 4 shades – very fair, moderately fair, medium and deep – which easily match a wide range of skin tones. I have quite fair skin and was worried that the moderately fair shade was going to show up too dark on me but I was surprised to see it blend in seamlessly. This primer really does help to extend the life of your shadow, and I found that my makeup lasted all day when I tried it with the All About Shadows.
This fall also sees the addition of 6 new Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense shades – Intense Truffle, Intense Clove, Intense Peridot, Intense Peacock, Intense Aubergine & Intense Amethyst – along with 2 new limited edition shades – Intense Sable & Intense Cobalt – that help to create a more dramatic eye look. I have to admit I am smitten with these. The colour payoff is unbelievable, with highly pigmented shades and these pencils glide on so smoooooothly. Not only that, but these babies last and last. Love!
