Hey beauties !
Who invited March? Seriously, I hate March, for it is the month of exams to begin! Anyways, before the exams start, I really wanted to write a few posts for writing here is my favorite hobby !
Today, I will be reviewing an eye shadow from Clinique. It was gift by my amazing masi from Canada.
Creamy, intense colour in one stroke. Surprisingly lightweight. Ophthalmologist tested for even the most sensitive eyes. Clinique’s soft shimmer finish brings day/dusk/evening drama. The end of the quiet eye.
How to Use
Use applicator to sweep shadow across entire lid, lashline to brow.
Create interesting dimension by blending and layering multiple shades.
Eye shadow singles can be used as an accent shade in the crease, as a liner, or to highlight just under the brow bone.
For a more detailed application, choose specialists from Clinique’s Makeup Brush Collection.
Remove with your favoriteClinique makeup remover.
Price – $15 (online price)
My Experience with Clinique 256 Champagne Colour Surge Eye Shadow Soft Shimmer:
Packaging – I have to say the packaging department has done an amazing job. It comes in a cardboard packaging. It contains all information about the eye shadow. The eye shadow comes in a cuboidal glass packaging. The top is a reflecting metal while the bottom is glass. Over all the packaging is sturdy and super convenient. A mirror is provided on the other side of the top, and seriously it’s a very good mirror. Every girl needs a good mirror in her bag 😉
Applicator– Most eye shadows come with applicators that are really of no use at all. The companies just put them in for the sake of saying. However, Clinique has done a good job here. The applicator is made with a good quality metal and makes application very easy.
Colour– The name of the colour perfectly describes the shadow – Champagne! It’s a perfect champagne colour and has a slight shimmer to it. However, it’s barely noticeable and thankfully, it blends in very well. Even if you are not a fan of shimmer, this will not disappoint you at all.
Pigmentation– I swear by the pigmentation of this product. It’s smooth like silk! What else do you expect an eye shadow to deliver to you? All you need is one swipe of this product and you are good to go! I am personally, one of those people, who cannot stand a lot of makeup, but this eye shadow is very light and doesn’t make you look made up at all.
Staying power – It has a staying power of 5-6 hours, which is really good. You could use a primer underneath.
Now this colour can be used in many ways. You could use it alone, if you are a lazy person like me. It helps you get that fresh look, and wearing it with a black liner, can make a statement 😉 It’s great to use as a base for your other colours as well. It helps to even out your eye lids.This does have much fall out issue.

Cons of Clinique 256 Champagne Colour Surge Eye Shadow Soft Shimmer:
Will I buy Clinique 256 Champagne Colour Surge Eye Shadow Soft Shimmer again?
It is an amazing product, but I guess I won’t finish it soon, and I want to try other colours from this range. Clinique has 22 more colours from this range!
