Clinique | Color Surge Eye Shadow Palette

Hi lovelies,

It has been a while I wanted to review Color Surge Eye Shadow Palette from Clinique I won on twitter. I have not tried an eye shadow palette from Clinique before which got me all excited. Even though I'm not into using eye shadows a lot and too frequently except for a clean, neutral shade (my favorite Continous Creme by Lancome Color Design Infinite) in routine days, I do love to play with colors when I feel the need. The Color Surge Eye Shadow Palette from Clinique - a limited edition, comes in a nice packaging of five well-coordinated eye shadows and a creamy, crayon-like eye pencil. The palette has a nice, wide mirror and is pretty light weight which makes it convenient to use on the go and carry around in your purse. It contains a combination of different eye shadows from single and duo Clinique palettes including:

Daybreak

These Clinique eye shadows have either a soft shimmer finish or super shimmer finish. The formula is silky and velvety with a nice texture. Pigmentation wise I would say these are not as pigmented as I thought these would be. It includes two small applicators with a smudging sponge side and a brush tip for multiple use. The lighter eye shadows Daybreak and Lilac  can be used as a base and all over the eyelids or even as a highlighter. The darker eye shadows work great for contouring and adding depth to the eyes. I love these eye shadows because they are crease and fade resistant therefore perfect for event like weddings and night events when you need your eye makeup to stay and look fresh for as long as possible. For a dramatic night time look, I would suggest using these eye shadows with a primer. You can try All About Shadow Primer for eyes from the same range which will definitely improve shadow application and will last longer.

The Color Surge Eye Shadow Palette from Clinique also includes a soft, almost crayon like eye pencil in the shade Chocolate Lustre. As the name suggests, it is a very nice chocolate brown shade which can be used during the day for everyday makeup. You can also create a beautiful smoky brown look with this eye pencil by blending it over your eyelids followed by a beautiful brown eye shadow of your choice. The creamy texture makes the eye pencil ideal to smooth over the entire lid followed by blending to soften the look. This can also be used as a base for the eye shadows. I am sure it would make the colors look stunning! This cream shaper has a smudge proof, water resistant formula which makes it incredibly long lasting.

I totally love Daybreak and Lilac (Lilac Truffle Duo) for the fact that they are so wearable during the day. But I also cannot deny the fact that all these eye shadows are beautiful. I am not too sure if this palette is available for sale at the moment but you can definitely purchase the single or duo eye shadows from Clinique. Let me know your thoughts about this palette.
