Clinique Lid Smoothie

NEW Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour.

Apart from the name, Clinique's new eye make up has a lot in common with the drinkable smoothie, both being packed full of antioxidants, which in the eye smoothie's case, is nourishing to the delicate eye area.

The creamy shadow can be applied directly with the unique applicator, which feels gorgeously cool over tired lids. Although wet when first smoothed on, the cream dries quickly to leave a velvety layer that wears for 8 hours.

I did find blending the smoothies slightly challenging as too much of the cream was removed by my finger tips leaving a mottled appearance, especially with the darker shades. I recommend starting with a small quantity and building up layers to achieve the intensity you're after.

12 colours have been launched, the charcoal-grey Lick-orice teamed with the silvery Salt and Pepper work to create a smoky eye.

Pinkgo Biloba and Currant Affair look great solo, or blend any shades together to personalise your look.

These lovely tubes are £17/7ml and would bit a hit for any beauty junkie on Christmas day.
