Beautiful duo and it is very pigmented. The pink has too much glitter in it and makes my eyes look puffy and tired. I really have to blend the pink with other shadows to tone it down. I will not be repurchasing this although I can't see it running out anytime soon.
About this duo: It has a beautiful goldish, pink color and a beautiful, shimmery bronze color.
My review: An absolute must have for me! This duo is always a go-to for me because it looks great any time of year! I love it in the Spring/Summer as well as in the Fall/Winter. It looks great with my coloring which is dark hair, brown eyes, and fair skin. I think it would look good on any skin tone/hair coloring, though, because it is very versatile. I have the Holiday set from last season which has the Strawberry Fudge duo plus a darker brown color, plus the Clinique blush in New Clover, and I wear them all the time! For Spring/Summer I wear it the same as for Fall/Winter, which is by putting the goldy-pink color underneath my brow bone and the pretty bronze color on my lid and up into my crease. However, sometimes for more drama, in the Fall/Winter I will put the darker brown color that came with my set along my lash line and in the crease..in a > shape, after I put on the goldy-pink and bronze colors. This duo is great because it gives a pretty, feminine look without being too made-up or dramatic, although you can definitely get a more dramatic look from it by adding a darker brown like I have discussed. A very pretty day-to-day eyeshadow duo!
love the color, it's very sunny. golden-pink, with a little pinkish brown in case you want more drama. the best part is the brush! what an excellent idea to put an actaul brush on one end instead of another spong-tipped applicator! nicenice quality!
I was able to select a duo from several Clinique eye shadows. This one looked unique in coloring. I wasn't sure how it would look on my skin tone because some of the red/purple colors can appear as if they were bruises rather than eye shadow-LOL! This one, due to the bit of gold in the colors, was kind to my warm ivory skin tone and green eyes. In fact, one day when I had worn this combo, a co-worker asked me if I was wearing one of my Chanel duos that day. I had a good laugh about that. But, hey, Clinique is always, in my book, an excellent value. They do extensive testing for sensitivities.Their price is beyond fair. Come on now, where can you get a beautifully colored lipstick, gloss, chubby stic? (Don't you love that name?) for between $14 and $15. Also they give you goodies when you buy things. I don't need to see CC or Dior or YSL on my compact. I need to see dollars in my wallet and beautiful colors on my face.
Well, I came across a mini one of these, that I had recieved as part of a free gift promotion, in my makeup box, that I had obviously forgotten about! Well, I LOVE IT! I love the pinky shimmer to it, and use this in the daytime when I wasnt a low key look. My issue is that I wish the amounts of the pink and brown were even, and not skewed!!!! Other than that, i WILL be buying the full sized one as the colours are super flattering, super blendable and super gorgeous :D x
I have really enjoyed using this duo. The pink color is a really pretty metallic, and the brown has a nice sheen to it. I layer this shadow on top of a pink cream shadow form Elf, and it really stand out. I don't use the brown very often; medium- dark crease colors are a bit dramatic for someone wearing it to school. The shadows are reasonably blendable.
But I would not repurchase this product because of its price.
Beautiful duo and the colours look fantastic on their own. The pink however, has too much gold in it and makes my eyes look puffy and tired. Good texture and colour pay-off though. Contains enough shimmers so that the colour does not fall flat but not too much to the extent of looking too frosty. Pity, the colour does not suit my skin tone at all :( Packaging attracts nasty fingerprints. Hate it.
I have this duo, I really like Clinique eyeshadows I have quite a few. They are versatile and the colors are so soft and natural. Not as pigmented as some others but they are great for daytime.
I absolutely love this compact duo, its hands down my favorite! The pink on my skin turns into gold. If I add more it turns into pink gold but a beautiful gold that complements my skin and brightens up my eyes. The mauve brownish color turns into a somewhat subtle brown yet shimmery like its there but its not a harsh brown its a blended in mauve. It also complements the skin perfectly and the pink-gold color. The duo gives a beautiful, natural-goddess look since the colors blend in so well with the skin. Absolutely noo creasing. Overall this product is genius; wouldn't change a thing! Go buy it! Its totally worth the cost!
I am in love with this duo. Great shades for spring and summer. Whenever i wear a pink shirt, i always grab for this eyeshadow and it's in a nice compact case for traveling! The pink has an undertone of gold which compliments me complexion. It is a great combo for teens! Very refreshing!
