    Comments about Clinique Touch Base For Eyes:

    I have used this product for years and love the Uplighting color, which seems to be a blend of dominat brown with a touch of purple. I'm disappointed they are discontinuing this color. I have worn it alone or under powder eyechadow and can vary the color of the eyeshadow when applied. (i used taupe, brown, or grey under it). What would be the closest to that color?

      This is the perfect base for under my eye make up. Lasts all day - at the end of the day looks like it did when I first applied eye shadow.

          Comments about Clinique Touch Base For Eyes:

          I mentioned to the sales lady that I do not like "sparkle" in the make-up that I use - I am 65 and it doesn't look good. This product has a lot of sparkle - not good for me. She didn't listen. Your sales people need to learn the good products for people over 55+. I have pretty good skin, but there are products that really don't work right on older skin. Please learn what products are good for older skin. Thanks!

                          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.
