Today I’m gonna do a fast review about Clinique Color Surge Eyeshadow Soft Shimmer. It’s a mono eyeshadow that I’ve been using for quite a while now. I’ve got the 06 Frosted Blossom shade which is a beautiful pale pink, with soft shimmer finish.
This mono eyeshadow is available @Clinique.com for the price of $14.00.
It’s really a nice color for summer and if you love pink eyeshadows you should give this one a try.
This color maybe considered very pale by some of you but you can use it as a highlighter (I’m totally into pinks highlighters) and apply it on your brow bone. I’ve always apply my eyeshadow after using an eyeshadow primer so I would recommend you to do the same (is there anyone who doesn’t?). It doesn’t crease, has a long-lasting power and powder formula. It is also easy blendable.
If you decide to wear it without a base, it won’t be that pigmented and will fade away pretty fast.
I’ve used this color in some of my FOTD that I will post in the future, so there you will be able to see how it really looks like combined with other colors.
I found the applicator useless, I mean I like to apply my eyeshadow with a brush and not with a sponge applicator so I didn’t even bother to use it.
Here are the swatches:
- Left: without a primer
- Right: using Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance Primer
I hope this fast review was helpful for you. I really love pink eyeshadows and I hope you will like this one too. 🙂
