Most Helpful Positive Review Just so good
I've been using Touch Base for years. It works so well I take it for granted! By the end of a long day, my eye shadow is still perfectly in place. On weekends, I wear Touch Base by itself to even out some redness on my eyelids. The Canvas shade blends right in with my fair skin, and there is absolutely no creasing all day long!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great canvas, but....................
I wanted to love this. I like the way it applies and creates a nice canvas, but at 51 it is too sparkly! It makes my eyelids look crepey and old. This would be great as a matte option - I had an old Laura Geller eye primer in a similar formula (which is no longer made), that was awesome because it was matte!!

I use this when I wear eye shadow and it holds it fairly well. Eye shadow goes on smoothly. I have very sensitive eyes and fragrance allergies so Very pleased with this product.
Not the Worst
Star from United States
This wasn't my favorite eyeshadow base I have ever used. I found that it didn't 'stick' to the eyelids and creased. I did help a little, but definitely wasn't much to write home about.
Elizabeth from Phoenix
I got the canvas shade with hopes of using it as an eyeshadow base or alone to neutralize. The canvas shade looks although it is a color of a skin tone in the picture. I bought online. It is a very sparkly, shimmery silver. For me, it is not flattering and waste of money. I looked very tacky.
Not a good cream eyeshadow base
Virginia Lady from Virginia, USA
This product is supposed to be an eyeshadow base, but it was dried up and hard. Couldn't get much of it onto my eyelid, and what I did was way too sparkly. Not a nice texture either. Pass.
Defiantly wasn't for me
TooHonest from Grand Blanc, MI
The formula is okay for application but does not last all day. Eye shadow fades worse than without a primer/base. Also has a shimmer so applying all over then using a neutral pallet still leaves too much glittery shine
Yes Yes Yes

I use as a eyeshadow base and alone.
Great for quick eye makeup
JB from Chicago, IL
Great color. Received many compliments when wearing this.
I've used this product for years...love it!

The Touch Base in Nude Rose is beautiful alone as well as a good shadow base.
CapricornLynn from West Chester PA
I use this to neutralize/lift the color my darkening eyelids. I apply with fingertips, but a brush could be used. I used this product 25 years ago -- and here we are today. I remain a fan!
I will but again

Smooth and perfic color and I trust brand.
I will purchase this item again!!!!!

I apply the touch base prior to applying the eye shadow.
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
