Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8 Hr Eye Color

Clinique's tag line for their new Lid Smoothie eye colors is " Way cooler than your average eye colour". That's for 2 reasons- the  actually cool on the eyes metal applicator and the long wear  of the shadows.

These new shadows come in 12 shades  and have good pigment but go on with muted color but are not sheer.  Coverage is good . I am partial to the Cute-Cucumber green and Currant Affair plum shades. ( Other shades shown are Bit O'Honey and Born Freesia. Yes, someone had fun naming these).

As I've mentioned many, many times, eye makeup melts on me fast.  I am always happy to try anything meant to be long lasting as I need it. These did pretty well. I got about a half day of  wear , using a base. You may fare better as my eyelids are an oil well. 

The are very creamy and  fairly thick and blend easily but need a bit of drying time on the eyes. Not long, but give it a 60 second count to set to a more powder finish. There is also some shimmer.

The formula also includes beneficial antioxidants including Vitamin E, Broccoli , Carrot and Blueberry. It really does sound like a Smoothie. Cucumber , Aloe Vera and Caffiene are in there as well.

Available now for $ 19.50
