    Comments about Clinique Touch Base For Eyes:

    I have used this product as a primer since before I ever heard the word primer. I have never had a problem with any shadows I have worn over this product. 'Canvas' is the color I use and it covers any 'flaws' and veins and really does produce a great canvas to add your eye shadow to.

        Use in place of eyeshadow for a natural smooth look. Keep the foil over the product and it won't dry out.

          They stopped making the product I used previously. Finally found a eye base cream like I like best of all! Gives your makeup a base and keeps it from creasing all day long!

          I wear this alone as an eye shadow or as a base for days that I feel I need to do more to fix up my eyes.

          I have been using this for 28 years and LOVE it. I apply it as a base or I use it as a great color. The only color I get is Uplighting. For 28 years I have never had any more creasing even after sweating my shadow is perfect!!

            This did not work well as I thought, supposed to combat the bleeding of eyeshadow and eyeliner from creasing in your lid as I have oily skin. I felt this product made my makeup even greasier. I only used for 4 hours in a sometime hot environment aka kid birthday party. My eye lids were very shiny and shadow bled into the crease of my lid.

            It is not actually translucent like I was told. It does not make the eyeshadow last all day like the last brand I tried. I will be returning if and spending a couple more $$ for the urban decay that works great for me.

                The uplight color is really almost black. Not flattering at all. You might see something like this on eyes in a magazine or on the runway. In person it looks like Halloween!!!

                        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.

                    • Q:

                      What are the main differences between the different shades? Are any of them shimmery? Are any matte?

                        A:

                        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.

                        A:

                        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!

                        A:

                        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.
