Product Review: Clinique Makeup

Thursday, May 24, 2012

I received a few Clinique products a few weeks ago, and you may have seen them in my Purple Smoky Eyes for Asians video. I wanted to also give you guys a more detailed review of those products, just in case you were interested in purchasing them for yourself.

Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow Quad in 110 Plum Seduction

This eyeshadow quad contains a mixture of different purple shades. What intrigues me most is that even the taupe colour (3) and the highlight colour (1), which are distinctly brown and beige respectively, have a purple sort of duochrome shimmer.

It looks pretty sheer in the pictures, but don't be fooled - the colours are rich and pigmented and buttery. The darkest colour is a tad chalky, but still blends out to a perfectly smooth colour.
The rest of the eyeshadows in the quad are perfect, shimmery, buttery smooth powders.

Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Colour in 02 Posy

I have wanted to own one of these blushes ever since they were first released, a while back. The packaging itself is Clinique's typical clean, no fuss compact, but the blush inside is so beautiful! It features a beautiful flower in a deep brownish pink colour set against a light pink background. The blush has an almost pearlescent shimmer. It doesn't show up well in swatches but for some reason looks great and natural on the skin. It doesn't have an obvious shimmer, but instead makes your skin look healthy and dewy.

Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Plum

I love, love, LOVE this eyeliner! It is smooth and very extremely pigmented and very easy to smoke out. Once it sets, it is pretty much stuck to your skin.

As you can see in the swatch above, it is more sapphire than plum, but no less beautiful. There is just enough colour to attract attention to the eyes, which I absolutely love! I'm so sad though, because I am burning through this at an alarming rate!
