This is one of the greatest forms of eye makeup out there. I use it as a base for whatever eye shadow I'm using. If you buy a shade near your skin color, it won't distort the color of your eye shadow, but it will keep it from creasing or smearing for literally days, if need be. Whenever I sleep over at a friend's house and don't take my makeup off, my eye makeup still looks great the next morning. I bought this as a gift for my cousin and now she is addicted, too.
Most Helpful Critical Review LOST WITHOUT UPLIGHTING TOUCHBASE!!!!
Obviously by looking at the many comments below, you need to return Uplighting Touchbase to your selection stock! I am lost without it!!! I cannot believe you have discontinued this product. Every time I go to a store to purchase the ladies tell me they cannot keep it in stock. If it is that big of a seller, why would you discontinue it?? Terrible marketing in my opinion! And obviously others also. I have been a loyal Clinique customer for 30 years, this is happening more and more every time I go in, you guys changing colors on me. I�m almost ready to quit using your product!!! That would be sad!!

I received it as a gift and I liked it very much
This is a MUST have
Amy71 from Charleston, SC
I have had hard times keeping makeup on my eye lids, I use this as a primer and it lasts all day. I also use it as my eye shadow, it is light weight and does not crease. Also adds the perfect amount of shimmer for your eyes to stand out!
Jenn from Denver
The formula is still good and the compact is cute. The Canvas color is not at all like the picture though. I thought it might be a close replacement to Uplighting which was my favorite touch base color. Canvas is a light nude color, yellowish and pale - very unflattering. Wish they would bring Uplighting back, it was a perfect taupe color to wear alone or as a base.
Love. Love. LOVE.
Rosie from IL
This product is terrific! It goes on nice & smooth like a cream, but dries very quickly. Used under eye shadow, it makes the shadow go on easier and last longer. No touch ups at work needed.
Shimmery cream eyeshadow
Virginia Lady from Virginia, USA
I bought this as an eyeshadow base, but instead of being very neutral, it's extremely shimmery. It works really well as a cream eyeshadow instead. Lasts a really long time and is easy to apply.
Clinique's mighty little treasures!!!❤️
mrsfrankling from Athens, GA
This little treasure of Clinique can me worn alone as an eyeshadow or base fo cancel out discoloration, veins, etc. I own Canvas, and Canvas Light, wear it over your concealer on the lids to prep for powder eyeshadows to stick better or to have a light sheen under them. It's not glittery at all. Just a beautiful sheen and base for the eyes. On the plus, the adorable classic green packaging looks beautiful inside any makeup bag. I wouldn't use the mirror besides to use the product, because too much exposure could dry the product faster. It is a cream product, so keep it safe. :)
Canvas shade- Good base.
Ashley D. from Houston TX
I usually use this as a primer and not stand alone. Great for that use. I do notice creasing if I try to wear alone. Comes with having oily eye lids, I guess.
Go to eyeshadow
CC from Ohio
Love this product! It acts as a base for other shadows or you can wear by itself. Beautiful shades! I have the rose tinted one as well and love it!
Best eyeshadow base!

Light creamy brightening base
Love this product!
Ash18 from Broomall, PA
I buy the #5 classic color. I apply this product on my eyelids with my fingertip, before I put on my pencil eyeliner. It helps the liner glide more smoothly along the lid. I have been using this product for many years.
SunnySenior from Georgia
I really like this product. I used it for a primer for my eyeshadow. I use it under my eyes for a concealer. It diminishes wrinkles and helps brighten.
Covers nicely, doesn't crease
Gsport from Maineville, OH
I purchased this when Lid Smoothies were discontinued. This provides good coverage and it doesn't crease which is a huge plus. However, it dries up in its case too quickly, and once it loses the smooth texture it doesn't go on very well. I recently tried the Chubby eyeshadow and prefer it over this as a base.
I love this product!
Beach Lover from Tampa, FL
I love this product. It evens the skin tone on my eyelids and provide a light shimmer. I wear this instead of eye shadow.
I surely would buy this product again and again.
Buff Light the Rose from GA
Not happy that you discontinued the Buff Lighting (07) color and now the Rose is also unavailable. I have the Canvas Light but only use it when I want more contrast where the Buff and Rose are great anytime. I really do not like the Canvas. I hope you make the Rose and Buff Lighting available - the sooner the better.
Don't waste your money.
Renee TC from Michigan
This stuff is awful compared to Lid Smoothie. It doesn't blend and dries out even if you keep it covered with the foil that comes with it. I cannot imagine why Clinique kept this old product and discontinued the Lid Smoothie which is a far superior product. Don't waste your money.
The perfect everyday eye shadow/base!!!
srk from Portland, Oregon
I have been using touch base just about every day of my life for 20 years now!! I love them- all shades but nude rose and canvas light are my favs (and buff lighting back when they had it). This is super as a shadow and eye brightener in and of itself but also allows for an all-day stay in place wear of any eye shadow!
Great easy product
JackieS from Atlanta GA
I love this product. I apply it with a brush to make it even. This cream lasts for the entire day. Its a good base to apply shadow on top of or as a stand alone product. It gives your eyes some pop just by itself.
LOVE the "Touch Base for Eyes"
Office Girl Adventure from Chicago, IL
I work long days and I'm inside, then outside and back in or driving. This product is so great, helps keep my eye colors on and looking good!
nicknamous from texas
This product instantly makes me look much older and crusty. its too shimmering and makes all eye makeup slide off. I have longer lasting makeup w/o it on.
helene from grand rapids mi
old brand discontinued. I looked and bought similar kinds. This is light and smooth keeps eye shadow on all day!
Bring back Nude Rose
Susan from TN
I have used this product for years!! Canvas is NOT the same. The lady at the Clinique counter told me it was the most popular. why in the world would you discontinue it?? Also, in February, I ordered it from Clinique.com and was told it was backordered. Then heard nothing else......no product and no notice.
Bring back Nude Rose
Chris from Saint Louis, mo
I love Touch Base. Have used it for over 15 years. Although this is a very popular product Clinique continues to reduce the number of shades available. Bring Back Nude Rose!!!!!
Makes me look alive
Over 55 and Fab from FL
I have been using Touch Base for decades and don't ever want to be without it. Takes seconds to apply, lasts all day. I wear it alone as a neutral base or I use it under shadow as a terrific primer. Blendable and can be built up or thinned. Has a sheen that adds glow too.
Chelle from Springfield, MO
When I received this the product it was very dry and not spreadable at all. The label on the bottom was bearley readable. I think this had been around for a long time. I have also ordered Canvas and it was perfect. Too busy at the time to return, but wish I had,
What happened to Canvas Touch Base?
Andie from Cincinnati, OH
I ordered this as part of a GWP promo. I thought i would come back to it because i haven't used in quite sometime and needed some shadow base. OMG, what a dissapointment it was because i remember Canvas being such a beautiful color and it worked so well on my fair-medium skin. I could even use it by itself with just eyeliner and mascara and it brightened and looked gorgeous! Well, i went to put it on and it was yellow!!! I remember there was a reason why i went away from it back then, i think that was why! #PermanentNoteToSelf
