These little lovelies are an absolute find! They aren’t new but a recent re-introduction to Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Stay Matte has put them on my list of firm favourites. 

Dark Denim
Sable
Night Plum
Martini

I like, sometimes, to have my eyelids really, really dark and wear lots of kohl on the inner rims – usually I use a Sue Devitt navy shadow that has a little bit of shimmer but actually, I think the look is better if it is totally flat. These have a good hit of colour (they aren’t all dark) but a softness to them as well. Dark Denim, Sable and Night Plum are gorgeous evening shadows, and Martini is a lovely daytime one for block colour lids (although you have to cover any under-eye dark circles otherwise it all starts to look a bit ghoulish). 

From Bottom to Top: Martini, Night Plum, Sable, Dark Denim

They’re £15 each at Clinique.
