Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette

Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains eight shades of warm, pinky neutrals. Three shades are from other palettes (duo/quad/palette, actually), and then five are from the singles range. I half-hoped that this was going to be a cooler-toned neutral palette, but it ended up quite warm-toned overall. The All About Shadow formula is supposed to be long-wearing, crease-resistant, fade-resistant, and have “creamy colour [that] glides on in one smooth stroke.” The formula is more what you might associate with Clinique: subdued, sheerer, better for those who like exactly that type of application and look, but if you want intense coverage, you’ll want to look elsewhere. The colors have some overlap within the palette, which makes it easy to use and blend everything together, but it could be more contrasting and versatile.

Clinique Cream Pop, Aqua Pop, Surf Pop Lid Pops

Clinique Cream Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a firmer, drier texture that was harder to get out of the pan. It sheered out somewhat on the skin and couldn’t be built-up more than 85% opacity on bare skin (you have to use a good primer/base). It lasted for six hours before fading. LORAC Black #2 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Bonifacio (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S516 Sand (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Naked (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Stila Kitten (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #10 (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Sweet Sovereign (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced New Romantic (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Grain (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Suede (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Eclosion #3 (P) is darker (85% similar). Anastasia Blush (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Presto (P) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Clinique Vanilla Pop, Cocoa Pop, Petal Pop, Grape Pop Lid Pops

Clinique Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, powder eyeshadow formula that is described as “silky” and “long-wearing” with “richly pigmented shades build, blend easily to desired level of intensity.” They have good color payoff but tend to sheer out on the lid, and there is a faded quality after application, almost like when you apply an eyeshadow damp and it dries down less intense. The texture varies from soft and powdery to dusty to smooth. If you like semi-sheer to semi-opaque wash of colors and take the time to really blend and buff each shade, you can get a really luminous finish out of them, but using them more heavily results in a drier texture that was visible on my lid. I get between six and seven hours of wear with this formula, and in my experience, it was a formula that was faster to fade (but I didn’t have creasing issues) than the average eyeshadow for me. They have a very “lived in” look to me applied; like the eyeshadows melt and fade against the lid, but they never look like they do in the pan on the lid without a white or colored base.
