Clinique Lid Smoothies

Creamy eyeshadows can sometimes be a mega pain in the posteria, thanks to their ability to crease worse than a linen pair of trousers. The colour is often stunning, providing a shimmering unique texture, but the creases make your eyelids look tired and worn after a few hours. The new lid smoothies from Clinique are the complete opposite though, offering up to 8hrs wear and a formula that’s as smooth as a silk sheet. They’re available in 12 different shades and come in these really cute and handy tubes for giving you a little amount of product where you need it most.

The nozzles can be used to either apply directly to the eyelid or just squeeze a little amount of shadow onto the back of the hand to apply with a brush. The angled tip makes it easy to sweep across the lid, although it’s better to use a brush or your finger to blend in. The result it a really fab, flawless colour which can be blended to create a great base or a highlight of colour – it doesn’t crease or cake and it stays in place all day long. 

The colours are fabulous. A pearlescent undertone catches the light and highlights the white in the eyes, enabling you to look wide awake even when you’re not. There are little specks of gold too, creating a depth of colour and fabulous result. There’s a colour for every occasion too – everything from neutral creams, to darker berry and bluer shades. I don’t have a bad way to say about these; I’m sure they’ll be an iconic product for Clinique for years to come. J’adore.

Available nationwide and online for £17 each

    These are the eyeshadows I've been searching for all my life! They look gorgeous and the little tubes are super cute. I'd rather have half the amount for half the price though :-/Nic

    Wow, these look amazing, I normally steer well clear of cream eyeshadows but I am seriously tempted to give these a go. Might have to pop to Debenhams at the weekend 🙂
