I’ve been using Clinique Foxy eyeshadow (number 404) for years as part of my everyday makeup routine. It’s a very versatile colour and will suit most people. I personally suit more grey-brown shades than brown-red/pink shades, so this colour has fast become one of my favourites.

It’s quite a creamy eyeshadow that can be both lightweight and intense depending on what other shades or eyeliners you wear with it. On its own it stands out yet does not look too heavy.

I really like the pigment and the metallic base to this eyeshadow, it’s great for creating a smokey eye look. I create this by teaming it with a darker brown eyeshadow applied towards the outer edge of my eye lid and on the upper crease. The colour stays on all night (although I do wear Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion underneath- see here for blog post) and does not crease.
Also, it can be teamed with a lighter shade, such as a white/cream colour for during the day to create a bright and natural look. I apply foxy across my lid but with more intensity towards the outer edge and the upper crease, as well as the lash line. Then I apply the lighter shade to the inner corner of my eye.

This eyeshadow has lasted me absolutely ages- it really is value for money. It’s my safe shade that I can take with my anywhere to wear on its own or with darker and lighter colours depending on the occasion.

Has anyone else tried this eyeshadow or any other Clinique eyeshadows? What is your safe, go-to eyeshadow?

Price: £15
