I actually really enjoy this duo! At first, I was not a fan of the pink, because I was a pale, blue-eyed blonde, and it made me look a bit childish, like I was trying to imitate a Barbie. However, with just a tiny amount of the pink, really subtle, it can really work, and looks very soft. I did enjoy using the brown side for a more smokey look, I loved it! However, now that my hair is slightly darker, I think my favorite thing with this duo is to put the pink all over my lid, and then put the brown right over top of it. It gives a shiny, gorgeous color that I love for a quick, more dramatic eye. Both colors are very pigmented, which is great. So although I at first wasn't completely sold on this one, I love it now, and can't imagine my makeup kit without it.
Wow, I never would have bought this eyeshadow on my own free will. I basically had a giftcard to spend at Sephora, and I wanted some eyeshadows. I somehow found this to be rated really high in terms of Cliniques Duos, but normally I'm not much of a pinkish person. Then I noticed I could buy TWO of these for half the cost on Ebay. So since I was getting out cheap, I bought the two and gave one to my mom. I have to say, when I put the pink color on the applicator, I made a 'yuck' face. But after I put it on, I thought "that's not bad at all!" I put the pink shade on my lids, and the brown in the crease. It DOES look natural! A keeper!!
If somebody told me that this eyeshadow duo was as natural looking as it is I wouldn't have believed them. I got this as a GWP and nearly passed it to my neighbour. I decided to try it out first and used the light pinky/gold shade just on my lids on top of my new Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener. This and a bit of mascara and that's my eyes done for daytime. It looks unbeliveably natural and subtle. I know it has a shimmer but it doesn't show up. It just sort of glows a bit. I don't really bother with the darker shade much. Occassionally I'll put it in the crease but most of the time its just the pinky gold bit....and not allover but just on the lids. Holy Grail - at least for this summer.
This is a gorgeous color duo. I have brown eyes and wear brown glasses and this duo really makes my eyes sparkle. I get compliments on my eye makeup all the time when I wear this.
This was one of the first eyeshadows I purchased from Clinique. Since then I have purchased many others because I just love the selection of colors and they blend beautifully on my eyes and it just looks great all day!! They are dramatic enough for me ( I love dramatic) but light enough for other people that don't like dramatic.
Expensive, but the packaging is beautiful and durable. I love the dual-sided brush. The eyeshadow itself is rich and silky, and lasts all day for me. A good look for daytime or formal wear. The best, most long-lasting eyeshadow I've tried.
A great complement to my dark brown eyes. I like this more for a day look.
I received the pink shade of this duo as part of a Clinique gift set. It is very shimmery and really brightens up my eyes, as long as I don't use too much. The gold flecks in the pink also enhanced my skin tone.
I never knew I could wear a pinkish color but it really made my hazel eyes pop. The fudge color is a gorgeous neutral color and these go on so smooth. I don't like the brush that comes with it (I use MAC eyeshadow brushes) but other than that, I really love it. Don't let the word pink scare you, it isn't really pink, it's beautiful.
Was scared to use this because of the color of the 'strawberry' but I love it! The brown is very nice, a kinda dark/sheer bronzy color that mixes very well with the pink. The pink is not pink at all but a nice sheer gold. The two blend easily together. I love this duo so much, I want to try more!
