Most Helpful Positive Review Teddy Bear
This is my one and only eye shadow product. I have used this for years and years for my hazel/brown eyes. All the shades are matte and just beautifully natural. The off white can be a great under brow or all over base. The light tan shade is identical to my eyelid color...a totally nude flesh tone. The taupe shade is a light grey brown and is very pretty in the crease or even under the eye as a liner. The darkest shade is a warm coffee brown that I totally use as my upper eye lid liner alone most of the time or with my quick-liner by Clinique in dark chocolate.
I use brushes for application and the powder glides on nicely, very smooth application.
I don't use a primer and the eye shadow holds up for a good 8 hours easily.
I think what I love the most is that the colors are matte. Frosted shimmering shades really age the eye, these shades just look natural and warm and youthful, doing what eye shadow is meant to do: accentuate the eyes, not the eyeshadow you're wearing or eye wrinkles!
Most Helpful Critical Review Why do you change and discontinue?
I am so frustrated because I was using Choco-Latte and it's been discontinued and I also use Teddy Bear but the eyeshadow is different now. Why change something that works so well? These eyeshadows don't work any better than the drugstore brands which I may as well buy and save a lot of money. Clinique, you blew it. Your eyeshadows were one of your best items. You've lost an eyeshadow customer.

I received the Teddy Bear quad in a gift set and was surprised at how much I love it! I've only used Clinique skincare products before, but am now converting to eyeshadows as well. The colors are perfect for blending and stay on all day/don't fade/don't crease. Definitely reccomend!
I plan on returning this
Cecilia from AZ
I am very disappointed in this product. I loved the colors. It took many repeat applications to show up in the first place and wore off so quickly. I am planning on going to Ulta to exchange it later today. I've tried using it over a week now and every day it's just bad. I have $6 makeup that works better than this. Please please save your money.
Great but had to stop using
Liesal from NH
This was the only eyeshadow I used for years, I had the pinks and purples quads. They go on well and blend beautifully for a natural look and last all day. I've been a Clinique user since high school, so 20+ years (brand loyalty) and sadly I decided to give it up and go to another brand. My eyelids started burning when I used it so clearly I was having a minor allergic reaction. But the main reason for switching is that Clinique powders all contain talc! I guess I just assumed not because they market themselves as seemingly clean. After looking at the ingredients I realized they all have talc so I have to stop using this brand. :(. Skin is an organ and will absorb talc, a known carcinogen. Bare minerals eye shadow does not work as well as Clinique but it's pretty good and most importantly doesn't contain talc. I hope Clinique can address that soon and maybe I'll be back.
I will buy this product again!

Smooth look and nice color

Nice shadow colors. I use it for a neutral look for work. Lasts all day. Liked the product.
The greens of my dreams!

Love the way the color stays true all day; no under-eye residue.

Less glitter than pictured online, classy colors and light shimmer
Pink Chocolate Quad
GirlyMom12 from TN
I wore the pink chocolate eyeshadow quad on my wedding day 10 years ago. Loved it then, love it now!
I would not buy again
Pam the shopper from Champaign Il
Will return. Glitter in product produced a rash on my eye lids.
mj from Kansas
Will buy this again.
Ann from New York
Normally, when using quads, I always end up having one shade leftover, but not this one from Clinique!
I love all the colors, using together or separately. Sometimes when I am lazy with eye makeup, I would just use a neutral shade to create a little bit of contour for my eyes. I am thinking of getting another one as a gift for my mom too!
Great for everyday wear
Tsia from Tbilisi, Georgia
Perfect color combo for my brown eyes. Nice soft colours and easy to apply. The compact is small enough to fit in the makeup bag too.
Beware if you have carmine allergy
Cristina from NY
I love these color stories, but I had an awful reaction (before learning I was allergic to carmine). I wish you'd make these without any carmine!
makes my eyes stand out

Palette is Out of this World!
BabaG from Guam
I wore this pallette on my wedding to match the color theme of the ceremony. Little to no fallout, really appreciate the number arrangement for a rare eyeshadow to wear kind of person like myself. I also appreciate the double applicator. You can't have only one with 4 colors.
Pink Chocolate eye shadow set
BarbM from Beach Park, IL
I can use this every day - it is neutral but gives a pop of color
Love the Purples
Jill from Georgia
Love the colors of this quad. Would have given it 5 stars if it came in matte for all 4 colors. Stays on all day and doesn't clump or settle in the lines.
No shimmer is great for people with crow's feet like me
Lisa from Las Vegas
The colors are natural and blend well. I appreciate the two applicators.
Love all the colors in this quad!
flauta_tejana from Richmond, VA
I orderd this quad a week ago, just received it in the mail and immediately put on the darkest color (I had already put my eye shadow on). I love using Clinique! I have been using it for many years.
Please give this beautiful quad a try!
Really brings out blue eyes
April from Louisiana
I use this pallete quite a bit. It's very versatile and I always get compliments on how pretty my eyes are (not my just make-up) when I use it.
My Everday-Go-To Eyeshadow
Midori12 from Honolulu, HI
Love love love this eyeshadow!! Definitely recommend for a subtle, natural, look. I wear it for various occasion...work, parties, night out with friends! It pairs wonderfully with Clinique CC creams.
I really love this product. I will continue to buy it.
Leslie from Buffalo, New York
I use this product every day because it is very easy to use. My only complaint is that the store did not carry this other Clinique Quad that other stores carried. I could have considered having the store order for me but with stores temporarily closing at this point I bought my second favorite Clinique Quad instead.
The teddy color is completely off
JP from Boston
It's matte, no hint of a shimmer and the picture is extremely misleading. Very disappointing for the price point here.
Not Frosted/hardly has pigment
J Smith from Pennsylvania
I ordered the Teddy, it was not frosted and you can hardly see the color on my fair skin! Last summer I ordered the limited edition summer all about quad, and absolutely loved the pigment and the perfect amount of simmer.. my natural eyeshadow palette (not Clinique) finally needed replaced and since ei have switched over everything else to Clinique and have been very satisfied, I was excited for this to arrive and then ended up being disappointed with the Teddy.
