A Surge of Colour for the Eyes

Given my last experience with Clinique’s eyeshadow, I wouldn’t normally be interested in their eyeshadow but I saw the words “Colour Surge” and remembered how much I like this lipstick.

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad Clinique’s Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quads come in 6 gorgeous palettes. The one pictured here is Spicy, which is the one I picked up. The quad colors range from nude, tawnie to violet based shades and pictures do not do these shades justice. I tend to reach for matte eyeshadow for everyday wear but the quads in the nude and tawnie ranges would be great as well, the shimmer is not overwelming. I was happy to find that the shadow was well pigmented and blended well, all while leaving a soft shimmer on the eyes. The eyeshadow is soft enough to provide a sheer wash of color and rich enough to really pack on the color for a bolder look, which is fun to do from time to time. This eyeshadow quad certainly meets my eyeshadow criteria. Pigmentation? Check. Texture? Check. Long Lasting? Check.

  1. Clinique isn’t known for their eyeshadows, but I think they’re excellent. Like you noted, the color and texture are great, and on me they last just as long as other brands better known for their eyeshadows. I really liked the Choco-latte quad from the Christmas collection, and I have a pink shadow (Seashell Pink) that I’m despondent over because it’s almost used up.
