Hello to Clinique’s 8 shades of beige!
I finally got my hands on Clinique’s 16 Shades of Beige palette!
I popped by Boots the day before it was released to store and thought I’d check if they had it. And of course they did, and the lovely assistant said she’d sell it to me early. Even better I got extra bonus card points KER-CHING!
Anyhoos, I love, love, love this palette! Even my mum thinks it looks gorgeous! It’s actually three million times smaller than I thought it would be. Its like half the size of a ruler so fits everywhere. I convinced myself it was huge like the mahoosive Naked palettes.
I tested one in store and found one of the middle pink ones were my fave when on first look I thought I’d prefer the darker side. Although the left side is ‘light shimmer’ and the right ‘super’, I actually found them to be evenly shimmery, not too much or too little.
When I swatched on my arm (apologies for the lack of straight lines) I was pleased with the intensity of each colour and how they stand out on their own. They were so strong that I had to remove with babywipes. A simple blend of the finger just wasn’t budging it, so I don’t think I’d need an eyelid primer with this, all day staying power.
The brush is super super soft and double ended for the ideal smudgeroo! As ya’ll know each shade has a nail colour in the same shade so you can mix and match if you wish but I’m not a fan of nude or grey polishes so eyeballs it was.
