A couple of months ago, I was browsing through the Clinique counter hoping to spot the new Spring blushes but they were not out yet. I ended up getting the eye primer instead and boy, am I glad it turned out to be a huge win for me.
The Clinique All About Shadow Primer for Eyes comes in a simple tube with a doe foot applicator. The shade I have is Very Fair 01 and I think it runs up to 04 being the deepest. Initially I thought 01 would still be a tad bit dark but once blended out, it actually matches my skin tone very well.
The consistency feels a bit tacky upon the initial application but it smooths out very nicely and leaves a satin-silk finish. My eyeshadows glide on very well on top and the primer helps enhance the colours slightly.
What impressed me most was how long my eyeshadows lasted. My lids tend to be oily after a few hours and without a good primer or base, nothing will stay put. The Clinique primer can extend the wear of my eyeshadows for up to 12 hours with nary a crease in sight.
I honestly love this stuff! I think I have tried nearly every eye primer out there and the Clinique one definitely gives the NARS primer (which used to be my favourite) a run for its money.
You can find the Clinique All About Shadow Primer for Eyes at the counters or boutiques for RM68. Yes, it may seem rather pricey but you’d only need very little for each use so one 4.7g tube will last a really long time. If you suffer from oily lids and migrating eye shadows, I’d recommend checking this stuff out.
What is your favourite eye primer? I’d love to hear your recommendations although I think I have found my Holy Grail of primers
