Review: Clinique Eye Shadow Duo in 309 Champagne Kisses

This was given to me by a dear friend when she returned from Taiwan. I think this was an Asia Exclusive since it isn't on the Clinique site (where it retails for 17.50). The duo includes a pretty neutral to warm light pink and a metallic beige-brown (which in my opinion is absolutely beautiful).

The pink looks cooler than it is here however.

I was skeptical for this duo since the only other Clinique eyeshadow I have is Lucky Penny, which was great, but I dislike pinks. However...

This was a disappointment. The pink color, while pigmented, was chalky on me and made me look horrible. Perhaps the color is too pale; but I didn't have high hopes for it, because, as I already stated, I never use pinks on my eyes. This also was about 2/3 of the duo.

The brown shade, a pretty metallic beige-brown with pink undertones is BEAUTIFUL! I really like it, but...it's not the most pigmented. If this was a single, however, I still would keep it. But it's only about 1/3 of the compact...

Packaging on the clinique eye shadow is always in a mirrored lid with the Clinique logo, see through bottom and eyeshadow in little mock-color squares. Comes with a sponge and a plastic cover. I hate how the mirror attracts so much fingerprints though.

These color disappeared on me immediately without a base, but lasts pretty well with Urban Decay Primer Potion. Overall, up for swap this goes, because the pink shade is just not flattering and the amount of beige is not enough to save it.
