The Advice Sisters have long been fans of Clinique’s color cosmetics. They’re nicely packaged, high performance and great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Launched just this month is another new product that fits the description: Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour $19.50.
What’s so amazing about this cream-to-powder formula in a tube, is that it is super-easy to apply, and it is long-wearing and crease-free color. The product is water and transfer resistant,and even features good for your skin benefits such as antioxidant-rich extracts of vitamin E, broccoli, carrot, blueberry and spinach, plus cucumber, aloe vera and caffeine (to perk up tired lids), plus collagen boosting peptides to smooth the appearance of wrinkles.
This all sounds great, and the squeeze-tube packaging makes it travel friendly, but will it stay, all day? I tested this on one of those hot, humid, over 95 degree days and wore it morning through the evening (it has to be at least, 8 sweltering hours). Under these conditions, most cream shadows this luxe, build-able, and blend-able, would simply slide off in a second. But the Clinique Lid Smoothie stayed put and true to color. I admit, I was impressed!
The other thing that is remarkable about this little powerhouse tube of tint, is that Clinique’s “cooling” metalized applicator feels refreshing, and it actually helps the skincare-infused formula to visibly rejuvenate the eye area, as well as provide sensational lid color.
Speaking of which, Clinique Lid Smoothie has a range of 12 shades that range from nudes to warm golds, to violets, blues and berries. Most are subdued, but soft doesn’t mean no color. They’re gorgeous, slightly greyed colours that look right now, but will really be on trend in the Fall and back-to-school.
Clinique Lid Smoothe Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour is one of my picks as a Fall must-have, but you can get it now a Clinique counters nationwide as well as on www.clinique.com
