I was so excited when Clinque sent me this Limited Edition Party Eyes Palette to review. Clinque was my go to brand when I first got into makeup. I think everyone in their early 20’s used their Dramatically Different Moisturizer. Throughout the years I drifted away from Clinque just because they were so many other brands out there. I’m so glad they sent me this eye shadow palette because I’ve fallen in love with Clinque all over again.
Right when I saw the shades I was so excited! I realized that I didn’t have any cool toned eye shadow palettes. There’s 14 beautiful shades and a dual ended blending brush. When I first swatched the colors, I was pretty surprised on how creamy they felt. A couple of the darker matte shades I had to build up to not make them look streaky. But once I applied them with a makeup brush to my eye, they weren’t streaky at all. In fact, they were really easy to blend out. I’m talking really easy!! This would be a great palette for anyone starting out with makeup. Just because of how easily these blend out. You don’t have to sit there till your eye hurts to blend out your eye makeup look. Score!!
I really had no idea what kind of look I wanted to create with this palette but I knew I had to use the silver shimmery shade. It really stood out to me. I ended up doing a cut crease eye look. I only used three colors to create this look. The matte silver for the transition shade, the black matte shadow to define my crease and the shimmery silver for the lid. I also used the silver shade as my inner corner and eyebrow highlight. So obsessed with how it came out!! Usually for a cut crease you really have to make sure you blend out the darker shade. Not with this black shadow! It blends out so easily! Its the best black shadow I’ve ever used!! And I’ve used a lot of black shadows before.
Is the Clinique Limited Edition Party Eyes Palette Laugh Love & Hippie Approved?
I love that it’s all cooler toned shadows! I have yet to find a palette with shades like this. I can’t get over how easily they blend out. It’s so easy to create any eye look with this palette. Especially with the holidays coming up, it’s perfect for creating holiday party looks. It is limited edition so don’t wait on picking this palette up! I’m for sure going to check out more Clinique eye shadows.
Have you used any Clinque eye shadows before? I’d love to know how you felt about them . Thanks for stopping by my loves!
