Special "Fusion Layering" and "Variable Milling" technologies were used to create a lush, creamy application that makes the eyelids appear smoother while delivering rich, true color. A blend of good-for-your-skin ingredients, including Astrocaryum Murumuru seed butter and vitamin E, creates the ultimate creamy and silky powder texture. The smooth formula glides on easily and stays put throughout the day. I really love Clinique's new shadows - both for the range of colors and for the quality formula.
I think they look good together. Silver and seafoam teal green are a natural combo. I'll be using Silver Lining frequently as a base shade. Pacific Coast is a gorgeous pop shade.
Jenna used All About Shadow Primer for Eyes in Medium and began by applying the primer across the lid using the doe foot wand and blending with her finger. The she used Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Peacock and Cream Shaper for Eyes in Black Diamond, layering the liners on the upper and lower lash lines and smudging with the Eye Contour Brush.
She also used All About Shadow in Nightcap Duo (another duo I purchased and will show you this week), sweeping the Eye Shader Brush into the darker shade shadow pan and taping to remove excess powder. Apply to lid starting at the lash line and blending up to the crease.
She used All About Shadow in Pacific Coast, blending the teal shadow along the lash line with the Eye Contour Brush. She blended up into the darker Nightcap shadow using the Shadow Brush. Finally, she used All About Shadow in the Smoke and Mirrors Quad, using the Eye Definer Brush to swipe the darkest shade from the Quad along the lower lash line to intensify the look.
She finished with Naturally Glossy Mascara in Jet Black (one of my favorites) - and one to which I might return after I run out of my discontinued Maybelline mascara.
In case you are interested, she used Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Precious Posy and Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Whoppin’ Watermelon to keep the focus on the eyes.
The new All About Shadow colors are available at all Clinique counters and Clinique's Web site. You really ought to check them out.
