It has been a hot summer, hasn't it? While I normally don't look for makeup products that cool my skin, I was very intrigued by these new eye colours from Clinique which promised to do just that - cool your lids as you apply them. Meet Clinique's new Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour.
You see, the magic happens within the applicator. It is made of metal that when used to apply the eye colour, you get a very cooling sensation. It is really different feeling as it sort of wakes up the eyes as it is applied. The skin care-infused formula helps to visibly rejuvenate the delicate eye area too!
The formula is so lightweight and the shades blend effortlessly across the lid leaving a soft, shimmery, powdery finish behind. Lid Smoothie is great for layering and pairs beautifully with powder shadows too. Who would have thought? I wouldn't have until I knew I needed a base color and tried it myself.
Lid Smoothie Eye Colour comes in 12 energizing (chilling?) colours with shades ranging from nudes and goldens to violets, blues and berries:
- Bit O’Honey
- Cashew Later
- Pinko Biloba
- Seventh Heather
- Born Freesia
- Currant Affair
- Salt and Pepper
Try out the Clinique Lid Smoothie Eye Colours at Clinique counters now. Of course you can shop at clinique.com too, but you will really want to experience this cooling sensation in person for yourself. Each Eye Colour retails for $19.50.
