Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-Hour Eye Colour



Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8-hour Eye Colour


This small wonder comes from one of our favorite brand, Clinique. It's the Lid Smoothie, a long-wearing, crease-free cream eye shadow that has cooling and anti-aging properties. Quite reminiscent of their Touch Tint for the Eyes but now with added skin care benefits. It's always appreciated when a brand launches a product that has dual purpose. Like I mentioned in my previous post about Clinique makeup, I like that it is skincare first before it is cosmetic.

Becasue the truth of the matter is, good skin starts with a good skin care. Makeup is that little icing on the cake. A sort of accessory we pile in like watch or a necklace.


With Clinique Lid Smoothie, I found a decent eye primer that lessens the chance for my eye makeup to crease. I'm very OC when it comes to my eye makeup and hates it when it creases. That's why I pre-order and cajole my relatives in the US to purchase me eye primers like Urban Decay, Too Faced or Smashbox. I'm happy to say that they is no rush for me to this already with the release of Clinique Lid Smothie. It's been my go-to primer for a crease-free purple or neutral makeup look.

Ideally this can be worn alone but Born Freesia, a sheer lilac shade, is a bit too light for my skintone. I could get away with this though during casual events with just a mascara blush and gloss. But as a base, Born Freesia can replace my eye primers.

What's best is that it has antioxidant properties which helps repair and prevent aging on my lids. As we often neglect our eyes during skin regimen, instilling it in our makeup routine makes it easier for us to care for it.

What to love:

  • The nifty tube-type packaging which makes it easy to use this all up.
  • The unique metal applicator that gives a cooling touch (I feel as if it freezes my fine line!)
  • Comes in array of shades to choose from.
  • Quite affordable at Php1550 for a primer and an anti-aging product.
  • A little goes a long way so apply sparingly.
  • Doesn't dry up too fast.
  • Blending this along the lids is very easy.
  • Convenient packaging makes this easy to take anywhere.
  • Easily affordable here in the Philippines
  • A great alternative to eye primers.
  • Eye makeup remain crease free for 8 hours or more.

What not to:

  • Nothing. Except that some might find this too satin-y or expensive for some.
