09 Aug Makeup Review, Swatches: Clinique All About Shadow Singles, Duos, Quads, Primer, Quickliner For Eyes Intense
Clinique All About Shadow and All About Shadow Primer for Eyes just launched this month, and the variety of colors is simply delightful to see! Colorful and bright, the eye colors certainly POP!
I have been watching Clinique over the past years grow in a variety of ways, and I truly like what I see — literally. The color varieties in this new collection are just amazing and cover the necessary elements of skintone ranges, styles and wearability. All About Eye Shadow offers options for every age, too.

All About Shadow is long-wearing (8-12 hours) and has a luxurious, creamy formula that delivers rich, true color intensity. Available in all finishes from matte to shimmer, you’ll have eyeshadow looks from day to night that can be easily achieved.
Blushed & Purple Pumps
Singles ($15.00 each) come in a wide variety of nudes, golds, greens, pinks, blues and violets –offering 30 colors in all!
Duos ($20.00 each) have two colors that are both a light and dark shade paired together to make application super-easy. Apply a single shade all over the lid, or add the deeper shade in the crease to create your own smoky look. There are 16 different duos to choose from!

Quads ($28.00 each; seen above) are a gorgeous grouping of four colors that offer the most versatile and dramatic looks. The silver compact includes application instructions, making it easy to achieve a variety of looks from subtle daytime to a dynamic evening look.
Jenna Menard, Clinique Global Colour Artist mentions:
“Blue hues were all over the runways for fall and are one of my favorite picks for eyes. Try an intense blue — All About Shadow in Deep Dive for a bold color that will make eyes pop with just a swipe.”

Once again, the hues are the same as listed above and I have noticed — I think due to the help of social media over the past few years — that blue hues are bigger than ever. I have also seen a lot of fall palettes offering all shades of green, too.
I love the eye instructional diagram on the mirror of these Quads, as it’s such a clever way to show the suggested application. Sampled/pictured in Galaxy and On Safari.
All About Shadow Primer for Eyes ($19.50 each) significantly improves color wear, reduces creasing and increases color retention. For a more casual look, All About Primer for Eyes can be worn alone to achieve a perfectly natural look. Available in four shades to reach a broad range of skintones: Very Fair, Moderately Fair (swatched), Medium and Deep.
Quickliner for Eyes Intense ($16.00 each) can certainly add more definition to any look. Their liners are non-fading, long-wearing and very easy-to-apply.
Available in 6 new shades (all pictures/sampled: Intense Truffle, Intense Clove, Intense Peridot, Intense Peacock, Intense Aubergine and Intense Amethyst), as well as two limited-edition colors: Intense Sable and Intense Cobalt, there are now 15 colors in total to capture a more defined and dramatic look.

“Pinks are another big trend for fall. Many women shy away from wearing pinks on eyes, but it’s actually a very flattering shade to wear. A trick to making eyes pop when using pink shadow is to pair the shade with new Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Amethyst.” — Jenna Menard, Clinique Global Colour Artist
Do you agree with me that blue is making a huge comeback? Do you think social media has played a part in that? I do. I am still waiting for someone to launch 50… you know it’s going to happen, right?
