Clinique Lucky Penny Color Surge Eye Shadow

I’ll be honest, Clinique isn’t really a makeup brand that is on my radar much. I have used some of their moisturizers for ever, but barely have any actual makeup from them. However when I was at the local CCO a couple weeks ago I couldn’t pass up this gorgeous shimmery shadow I saw called Lucky Penny.

Lucky Penny is from their Color Surge Eye Shadow Super Shimmer line. It’s a bronze/pink shade with lots of shimmer, but not the loose glittery kind of shimmer. No, this is much nicer.

Lucky Penny isn’t just a shimmery pinky bronze but also a bit metallic. I’ve been wearing it in some of my full face photos lately and a few people have been asking about it. What I really like about the shade is it’s a really warm and flattering color. Natural, but not boring or invisible looking. The texture is super soft and very pigmented. A little goes a long way and it’s really easy to blend out. It looks particularly great with a peachy pink blush and gloss (like my beloved Bobbi Brown Pink Gold).
