Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow- Soft Shimmer
I love so many of Cliniue's products (except the dreaded eye primer) and this eye shadow is another one of my favorite products from them! Clinique has matte shadow, soft shimmer shadow, and super shimmer shadow. Personally soft shimmer is my favorite because it's not to glittery, but it still has a nice hint of shimmer to it, and works perfectly for a cute daytime look.
The reason I like this eyeshadow so much is because it's really pigmented, so you don't need to use much when you put it on. It is also very smooth and applies very evenly, also the colour lasts a very long time. I usually apply my makeup around 7:30in the morning and don't remove it until 11 at night, and I hardly notice fading with this product, so really, how much longer can an eye shadow last!
One colour I recommend is "Sugar Sugar" which is basically a pure white, but with the little hint of shimmer. It's perfect for a highlight colour (brow bone colour) when your going for a nice light daytime look. "Sugar Sugar" also works well when you put it on the outer and inner corners of your eyes, because it really helps to make your eyes appear wider and more awake.
Clinique is one of my favorite makeup brands so I recommend their products all the time, but this eyeshadow is a definite must. Just one more thing, this eye shadow is about $18, and it's a pretty small eye shadow so for some that might be too much to spend but if you like to invest it makeup try this eye shadow out!
