This is a good eyeshadow, but not one of my favourites. I love the way the colour looks in the packaging, but it's very faint when I apply it and is barely noticeable! I also own an Essence eyeshadow which is pretty much the same colour, but has much better colour payoff. I think I'll stick to the Essence one and won't be repurchasing this!

I don't know if they still make this eyeshadow... but I came across this while cleaning out my "stash" drawer and decided to try it. I can't believe I had such a great eyeshadow lying around neglected! I love this color! This applied very nicely over my usual eyeshadow base (bareminerals Prime Time) and lasted all day without creasing. It is such a pretty color: a light-med. chocolate bronze. Very similar to MAC Soba, tho, so if Clinique discontinued it... I'll just settle for my Soba. :)

This is a basic creamy beige color. Nothing special about it. You can't even see it on my skin tone.

It was my favourite eye shadow from Clinique- and I think the only one repurchased again and again till they they decided to discontinue it.. it was just a decent bronzey colour, but it was just a dream to blend, the container nice, but had problems with the last corner bits- same as estee lauder tom for collection duos..

I got this eye shadow as a GWP in a set with Angelfood, Stormy, Vintage Wine and Graphite.
This is a nice eye shadow for neutral looks, but I wouldn't buy it again, because there is nothing special about it.

Perfect. Beautiful, idiotproof, extremely wearable. And discontinued. Stupid, stupid Clinique.

Possibly the most flattering, beautiful, neutral shimmer eyeshadow ever invented. My daytime HG for years- and its been DISCONTINUED!! Ok so I know it's been unavailable for ages, but it's only now that I've finally run out of my stockpiled GWPs that I'm comprehending the tragedy of it all!
This pale, warm gold shadow gives eyes a bright, clear, smouldering look, making the iris pop and somehow brightening the whole face like no other shadow I've ever encountered. (Another Clinique High Impact ES, Sunkissed, comes close.) Looks sensational on my lids whether naturally pale NW15-20, or spray-tanned NW30.
It works perfectly as a base or on its own for daytime, or for a fresh-faced `I'm not wearing makeup' look for the beach or a casual night out. It has fantastic pigment, lasts FOREVER (both on the lid and in the pan), and for a shimmer shadow, manages to look incredible even on more mature eyes. I honestly never look so good as when I'm wearing this eyeshadow, it just transforms the whole face. It's 10/10, HG, never-fail, five-star material! Bring it back, Clinique!! (And while you're at it, bring back the Smudgesicle too!)

This is an unexpectedly perfect eye shadow. On its own the gold works as a slightly shimmery neutral, and it is perfect combined with almost any darker or more dramatic shade for nightime drama. On me it lasts all day with no problems.

this is the perfect compliment to tanned, summer skin. A nice nuetral with shimmer. Looks amazing paired w/ black eye-liner.
