Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour - Review

Lid Smoothies are the latest eye shadows from Clinique. Creamy, crease-resistant eye colour that lasts for up to 8 hours. Instantly cools thanks to a unique applicator. Nourishing ingredients coax fine lid lines into a blanket of smoothness. Antioxidants help protect eye-area skin. Available in 12 shades.

I know I can do with a bit of help with line smoothing so was looking forward to trying them out. I was sent two shades to review

10 Impromptu Blue
08 Seventh Heather

Impromptu Blue is bluey/light purple in tone, it is flattering against my eyes but probably not a colour I would get too much use out of day to day. It is highly pigmented and strong and when blended has a slight shimmer to it,

Seventh Heather I love. This is just the kind of shade that I love to wear as an all over cover and it looks lovely on its own with just a bit of mascara. It really opens up my eyes and makes the whites whiter. Seventh Heather is a gorgeous, creamy light brown with shimmer.

With both a little goes along way as you can see below. You can always add product for more depth if necessary as this blends easily.

To get the wonderful cooling sensation apply the shadow with the special applicator tip. I then use a shadow brush to blend. Lid smoothies do what they say, they provide coverage that makes the eye lids appear smooth and unlined. Very nice indeed.

  1. Perfect timing! I was looking for something like this. Thank you

  2. I have the impromptu blue and although it feels nice, I'm finding it a little strong for day to day wear (colour wise) and I'm pretty rubbish at applying it with the applicator! Mind you, not tried blending it after with a brush, maybe I'll have to give that a go :-) x

  3. ooh i was looking for a review on these, thanks xxx

  4. I bought the Lick-orice colour and I have to agree I can not get used to the applicator, I end up using my finger! Also found that it creases within an hour and does not last eight hours, I am sorry I wasted my money.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
