Most Helpful Positive Review BEAUTIFUL NEW EYE SHADOW COLORS
I have to hand it to you Clinique, the new shadow colors are just beautiful!. I too am an aging woman and I refused to be brainwashed into believing I can't wear shimmery shadows. I am not going to let the media dictate to me that at a certain age you MUST wear matte colors only. As for me, I say, anything to brighten up my face!!! Bring it on Clinique! I have used your products for over 40 years and sure, there have been disappointments but this new color line of eye shadows is absolutely gorgeous! I would like to say to all that have complained about the shimmer in the shadows to stop following what colors and types of shadow the media tells you that you are too old to wear. Matte colors can be pretty, but also dull, monotonous, and just plain boring. Just order one of the new shimmery colors, apply it lightly and you should see that all that hype is just nonsense. If you wear old looking make-up you are going to look old. Do you want to look your age or do you want to add some "twinkle" to your face. So gtve a shimmer shade a try. Choose a color that you really love but think you are too old to wear. I think you will see a brighter new you and be very pleased with the result. With a name like Clinique, a company that stands behind their products, what have you got to lose! You'll never know unless you give it a shot.
Most Helpful Critical Review More matte eyeshadow shades
Please focus on more matte eyeshadow shades in the deeper shades. These are essential for the crease. Shimmers are only usable in the light shades as highlighters. No one I know likes the shimmery eyeshadow as a main color. It settles into fine lines and then partially evaporates leaving an uneven application. Shimmer might be cool and fun for the fantasy of the runway but not us real girls.

Beautiful color, stays on and blends well

I have been very upset with shadows in the past few years; for one thing, they flake all over when applying, they don't last through the day, and the colors are not as pigmented as they appear on the website. On a whim, I thought that I would try Clinique's shadows as I use a lot of Clinique's products. I bought a duet color to begin with and was pleasantly surprised that it lasted all day. After wearing it a few more times, I decided to get a single, which I loved and then bought a couple more colors. The sponge applicator applies the color just right with enough, but not too much, color on the lid. I tried it with both the sponge and an eyeshadow brush that I have and I really like the sponge better. The colors last all day until removed at night without reapplying and I don't have color falling on my cheeks when putting it on! I'm am very impressed and happy with both the product and my color choices that I made. It's a very good product and I want to note that I am 71 and have crepey eyelids, so I don't have a smooth application that a younger woman would have and I still get a beautiful color on my lid. Definitely my choice in shadows from now on. Please keep adding new colors to the list!

Expected matte, got shimmer. Pretty color, but at 44 I much prefer mattes to gradeschool glitter. The pigment is nice. I cannot comment on its staying power as I won't be wearing it. My problem is more with the description of the product than the actual product. Nowhere on the site does it say if the individual colors are shimmer or matte. No "SH" or "MT" on the individual colors. Enlighten me, please, if I am overlooking it. You need to make it more obvious so customers do not have to spend 30 minutes trying to figure out exactly what the product is. Will be returning to store.

Great for every day wear
Love Pacific Coast
Sandy from Scottsdale, AZ
I would love Clinique to bring back "Juniper". I is a beautiful color and it made my green eyes really pop, however, it has been gone for to long. Today I was trying to order Pacific Coast Single Eye Shadow and it wasn't on the list of shades. I sure hope you didn't discontinue Pacific Coast.
You need to have green shades, besides Lemon grass.
Sugar cane is so sheer, luminous, beautiful!!
Roe from FL
Just got sugar cane and tried under my eyebrow. I looked for so many other brands but all of them didn't meet what I was looking for as it's either too sparkly and too solid white streak to shown. This one however is the winner! It gives really great transparency/sheer feeling yet brighten my eyelid area with tad white color only. I hope Clinique never discontinue this one... I wanna keep buying!

Clinique eyeshadows are hidden gems. They are the softest gentlest shadows I've ever used. And so blendable.
I would buy this one again.
Bev from CT
I use the French Vanilla over my Clinique eye shadow. The French Vanilla is the basic shade to use with all other eye shadow shades.
The Best There Is
Damfino from Tennessee
Clinique's eyeshadow is the best eyeshadow you will find. It is unbelievably smooth and easy to apply and is capable of creating a no make up look or a bold dramatic eye that dazzles! And because it is hypoallergenic, my sensitive eyes are not affected! I would recommend this product to anyone as the best shadow they could buy!
Lilly from Upstate NY
Love the shade. I use it as a base or all by itself! Long wearing
Makes my skin glow
Nugene from Rickman TN
I tried the dark brown French Roast matte and had to apply several times while still putting on my makeup and it was gone completely in several hours. Tried with and without primer.
Easy to use
None from Springfield, MO
Worst online experience I have ever had. Ridiculous amount of time between order received and shipping, even allowing for pandemic. If I had known the delay I would have ordered from Ulta and gotten points instead of the sale price Clinique offered. Never ordering from this site again.
Crumbly with no pigment
austintatious from Austin, TX
The Purple Pumps color crumbled into chunks when I tried to apply it to my eyelid, and even then, it delivered almost zero pigment. Really disappointing. I've been wearing Clinique eyeshadows for years, so I was surprised at how awful this shadow is.
Bring back BALLET FLATS!!!

I got this shade in a GWP but did not know it was discontinued. It's my absolute favorite eye shadow ever! :(
Beautiful eye shadow

Perfect natural color
Juju from Mechanicsburg, PA
This is just what I wanted. I'm 73 and stopped using eyeshadow, since I think less makeup is better for "mature skin". This natural color is great to camouflage eyelid discoloration.
I truly like using this product
Cindy from MI
I always had a problem with light eye shadow showing on my eyes and staying on all day. This eye shadow
not only does both but blends well with other colors.
It's very, very cool shadow!!
Tasha from N.Y.
It's very, very cool shadow!! I like these shadows. Hold well, comfortable.
Terri from Chico
I bought a more expensive eye shadow hoping for better results. But the eye shadow faded off faster than cheaper ones. I will go back to basic cheaper brands.

It goes on smoothly, I like that it doesn't "fall" onto my face during or after application.The colors are great.
More satins and mattes, please
qwerty from New England
This is a lovely, buttery eyeshadow (sure beats the old slide-out compact!), and you get a huge pan. I wish there were more cool-toned shades in a satin or matte finish, though. I used to love wearing Stone Violet, Dark Denim, and Slate, but those shades have been discontinued. The only shade in the current lineup that flatters my pink porcelain skin is Portobello, a complex deep driftwood with a whisper of plum. It blends like a dream, looks natural in the crease, and color lasts all day. There are other beautiful colors available, but those that would complement my skin tone contain shimmer, which doesn't play nicely with my crepey lids.
