Clinique was the very first eye shadow brand I owned because a lot of my balikbayan aunts would always bring this as pasalubong. (I’m sure most of you guys had this experience too!) The most popular combination would be chocolate brown and a vanilla shade. That, and Clinique’s Face Powder and tiny tube of mascara haha! Remembering the eye shadow, texture was pretty chalky and I had a hard time working it on my lids, but I was a noob then and couldn’t tell the difference between good and bad makeup products so it was okay. At least Clinique had reformulated their good ol’ eye shadow range already!
CLINIQUE ALL ABOUT SHADOW IN ROYAL COUPLE IN DETAIL
All About Shadow is made with Super Fusion and Variable milling technologies to ensure a super smooth coverage, and also makes eyes appear smoother. It also contains Vitamin E and Astrocaryum Murumuru Butter to care for the skin around the eyes. It comes in singles, duos, and quads.
The shade I got is called Royal Couple. Packaging is very posh, sturdy, compact, and modern. It's a far cry from the green, marbled compacts of Clinique in the 90's.
Swatches of this skin care- infused eyeshadow after the cut!
Royal Couple is a purplish combination. The darker shade is a gray-violet kind of shade, while the lighter one is a pale lilac shade.
Texture is very silky and buttery, and it’s comparable to MAC’s eyeshadows. I’ve experienced minimal to no powder fallout. Pigmentation is medium to heavy and you don’t need a primer to get a bold payoff. It is unscented too.

Dark shade- applied on the lower lids
Lighter shade- applied on the above crease up until the brow bone
Regarding staying power, I find that this shadow resists creasing, but fades for a little if used without a primer- that’s pretty cool because this is one of the rare eye shadow products that lasted on my lids! If used with a primer, no need to worry about it because it will last the whole day, although it didn't smooth my lids significantly.
I’m happy with this product because wear time is pretty good. Not only that, it’s also formulated to suit sensitive skin and is allergy- free as well. Also, the skin care ingredients are nice additions to the formulation-at least we know that this makeup is doing our skin some good. I’ll be checking out the other palette combinations this weekend. :D
