Clinique Nightcap All About Shadow Duo

If you haven't read about Clinique's totally revamped eye color line, scroll down here at Best Things in Beauty. I've been presenting the information about All About Shadows this week. Today, I'd like to spotlight Nightcap ($20), a duo that instantly grabbed my attention. Then, I'll hold off for a few days before I show you the rest of the duos I purchased. Over the weekend, I'll show you more of the looks Clinique sent me.

I'll skip straight to swatch photos of Nightcap, which I took in full sun. I swatched with a sponge-tipped applicator. For all of the information about these beautiful new eye shadows (and liners, plus a new primer), just scroll down.

The silvery shade that takes up most of the real estate in the duo has a touch of green in it. If you look very closely at the left side of the swatch, you might be able to see it. The same goes for the "charcoal" shade. It also leans green. It's a shade I already know is very hard to capture with my camera. I don't doctor pictures (other than to blur spots on my arm when I have bruised myself), so what you see is what my camera saw.

I think Nightcap is a gorgeous duo. The quality is as good as it gets. The shadows apply like the nicest "creamy" powders. The colors hold up all day.  The slight shimmer on the duos I've selected is very flattering. I'm thrilled with all of them.

The new All About Shadow colors are available at all Clinique counters and Clinique's Web site. Let us know what colors tempt you.

They were really smart to have the lighter shade take up most of the space. with an intense darker color, a little goes a long way. awesome colors.

I'm loving the new Marc Jacobs line at Sephora! The nail polishes are awesome, I have Le Charm on right now. I also like the eyeshadow palettes. The gel eyeliner is great going on, but not a lot of staying power in this heat! Have a great weekend.

Love the new Clinique eyeshadows. They really improved them overall compared to how they were before. I have the new eyeshadow primer and it is great.

I found the Marc Jacobs gel liner to be just as deep and black more than 12 hours later. Mind you, I've only tried it about four times. I have one of the palettes but I've not tried it yet. I swatched it on Sephora. Someone said it is too powdery. How do you find the shadows?
