Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow Review




I'm still here and still fighting my vacation blues, but I've found that makeup really helps to overcome this kind of illness. This time I'm reviewing a product that brings summer to my life.. not that it isn't here already - end of July and everything - but it is an eyeshadow that can be used all year round and brings some bronzy goodness back in the picture!

We're talking about the Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow in 303 Lucky Penny. Clinique classifies it in the super shimmer finish category and it's absolutely right. It hasn't got any big chunks of shimmer in it but more of a metallic glowy finish. The colour is a burnt pink or you can say a bronze with pink undertones and as the name accurately states it resembles the colour of the penny.
Perfect for summer as a wash of colour to the eyelids and even as a highlight for the more daring. In the winter, when I'm reasonably paler, the colour picks up better and it's good as an everyday eyeshadow.

I know that this product is on the pricey side and you could definitely find something similar on the drugstore, BUT if you can afford it and you don't own it already, then get it.. like.. now! The pigmentation is great and the powder is so fine milled, that is just a joy to work with. Big plus.. due to the high pigmentation, you really don't need a lot, so it will last, and last, and last!!
