Review: Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour

Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour ★★½
Price: $42.00
About: liquid/creme eye shadows designed to give an 8-hour, creaseless finish.Available in 12 shades. Packaged in a plastic squeeze tube with cooling nozzle applicator.
As a 2011 Clinique It Girl I received a couple of Lid Smoothies to trial for the brand (see my video below). Lid Smoothies are cream eye shadows and unlike other cream shadows these do not crease - hallalujah! The smooth and creamy consistency blends over the eyelid with ease and a little goes a really, really long way so just apply a tad to the eyelid each time. My main issue with Lid Smoothie is that the colours in the collection are too subtle for my liking and as you can see from my video, they are not vibrant enough to be seen from afar. My best advice would be to wear a powder eye shadow over the product to give your eye shadow extra hold plus Lid Smoothie will make the intensity of the shadow more vibrant. The slim squeeze tubes are easy to carry and handy to keep in the top drawer at work, however these are best blended with fingertips which can be a messy task when not applying in the comfort of your home. Lid Smoothie claims to be infused with nourishing ingredients, however I am not too sure what they are exactly. While I like Lid Smoothie, I do not love it to bits but I do see the potential in this product.
