Review: Clinique All About Shadow Duo (Strawberry Fudge)

Hello humans~

Today I got a review of an eyeshadow duo that I received as a gift from my friend B! It is Clinique’s All About Shadow Duo in Strawberry Fudge. This duo is a set of subtle, and shimmery shadows that are great for an everyday look. Here goes the review!

Formula: Soft, Buttery, Shimmery Rose-Gold, Subtle Brown, Medium Pigment

The pink is not showing up well on camera, but it shows well in real life.

What I love about this duo is that it’s great for those days when you want some shimmer and glam, but in a natural and subtle way. If you’re looking to quickly do your eye makeup, this is a duo that you can reach for because it’s hard to mess it up! The pink in this duo is a shimmery rose-gold. It’s one of those colours where if you turn to one side, you’ll see a pink shimmer. If you turn your head to the other side, you’ll see gold shimmer. On the other hand, the purple-brown shade is great for the outer-v or for a vertical gradient. Although both colours look natural, they do not lack pigment.

One more thing I should mention is that this duo is hypoallergenic, so it’s gentle on the eyes. 🙂

The eyeshadow duo comes in a sleek and lux silver compact. The top of the compact is actually like a mirror- a great improvement from its old packaging.

 

Price: $25 CAD 

After tax, this duo costs $28 CAD – essentially $30 for 0.07 oz / 2.2g of product. So be warned, this eyeshadow is pricey! I was really on the fence about its price. I’ve seen other similar colours for a cheaper price, but are they at the same quality ingredient-wise?

 

Overall: 4.5/5

Overall, I rate this a 4.5/5. The colours and packaging are good quality, and it’s definitely one of those shadows that you can reach for often. 0.5 marks off for the price. Wah wah.

Which brand has similar colours to these?

Thanks for reading, and enjoy your holiday break!
