Clinique All About Shadow Duo in Like Mink – A New Addition

Clinique All About Shadow Duo in Like Mink - Review & Swatches

The last thing I need is more eyeshadow, that’s pretty much what I said to myself as I handed over my bank card for this beautiful duo from Clinique. In my defense, a local store was having 40% off Clinique so it was hard to resist. I stood at the counter picking, choosing and swatching before settling on the  Clinique All About Shadow Duo in 01 Like Mink.

You can always bet on me to gravitate towards shadows like this – Like Mink is right up my alley – a no fuss, neutral duo with a light champagne gold and a deeper warm bronze. Since picking it up I’ve been sweeping the lighter shade all over the lid and up into the crease – it’s super subtle on my skin tone but provides a beautiful base and a little bit of somethin’ to the lid. After laying down the champagne-y base, I’ve been blending the deeper bronze shade into the outer corner of my eye, adding definition without looking too intense.

Both shades are easily built up so I actually prefer to work in layers – blending as I go to avoid harsh lines. The eyeshadow isn’t the softer, more buttery formula that a lot of brands have been going for lately, I find it a little more traditional. That means less fall out, no chunky glitter particles and a super subtle application.

This has quickly become my weekend workday eyeshadow pick, one to reach for when I’m running late for my weekend shifts, two simple shades create a look which requires pretty much no effort while still looking put together. Obviously I wasn’t lacking in shades like this (in fact, it’s very similar to the Inglot and MAC duos that I already own) but having it in a neat little duo such as this is perfect for travelling. I think in this case I can blame my beauty website for my constant need to try new formulas. If you’re after a no-fuss, subtle duo that won’t lead to fall out – this is definitely one to try. I have my eye on one of Clinique’s quads next…

  • I’m sure the product is great but clinique really really needs to work on their packaging. It looks drugstore.

  • I used to use Clinique eyeshadows exclusively, they are so good, but with the huge range of exciting new products out there, I’ve strayed. I still keep a neutral quad and a duo that looks a lot like this in my work stash though!

  • So easy to wear!

  • I was SO close to picking up that quad that you have because I remember your posts about it but decided this duo was probably a more sensible pick! haha
