                Comments about Clinique Touch Base For Eyes:

                I was very bummed that Clinique discontinued my favorite shade in this - Petal Shimmer, BUT, Touch Base is the ONLY base that lets all my eyeshadows stay with virtually no creasing. Shadow stays on even if I exercise or sleep...I currently use this color, Canvas Light, which blends well with all my shadows. I have tried even more expensive name brand bases and cheaper bases. This seems the best and priced at the upper mid range. I use very high end priced eye shadow pallets and am happy with this product's performance every time...Only downfall, you have to keep the little foil cover on it between uses, otherwise it dries out and becomes impossible. I have learned through trial and error. Just closing the cover without the foil will ensure you won't be able to use it for long.

                  Comments about Clinique Touch Base For Eyes:

                  I love this Clinique "Touch Base For Eyes" in the "Uplight" color. I put it lightly on my lids from my lashes to the bottom of my eyebrows. Then when I put on my eye shadow it stays put. It makes colors easy to blend, and keeps the shadow from creasing or irritating my eyes. I won't wear eye makeup with out this!

                        I have been using this product for about 25 years and love it. I have been seeing that it can be worn alone. I have tried it and it looks kinda silly. Do you apply it from your lash line to your brow line?

                          You are applying it correctly, but maybe you need a different shade. We make several shades, and would love to match you with the perfect one in the store!

                          This is an eye shadow base. It prevents your shadow from creasing. It can also be worn alone to offer a brightening of the eye lid. Uplighting is a beautiful violet shade.

                          All of them are matte except Buff Lighting. Buff Lighting has a shimmer. We also offer lid bases such as Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8 Hour Eye Colour and All About Shadow Primer For Eyes. Touch Base and Lid Smoothie offer more color payoff and the All About Shadow Primer For Eyes is much closer to skin tone.

                          The two terms are actually interchangeable! :-) Touch Base For Eyes serves as an eye primer that helps prevent smearing, fading, and creasing of eyeshadow. Because it's tinted, it can also be worn alone, if you prefer!

                          Yes, the Touch Base For Eyes can help to minimize any discoloration on the eyelids. You can wear it alone, or layer it underneath your eyeshadow for even more coverage. It also helps to extend the wear of your eyeshadow and to keep it from creasing.
