Clinique Lid Pop eyeshadow in Willow Pop, Vanilla Pop and Petal Pop

Clinique Lid Pop eyeshadow in Willow Pop, Vanilla Pop and Petal Pop

Like the Clinique Cheek Pops before them, the new Lid Pops ($20 CAD) promise a silky wash of sheer colour, long wear and easy blendability. There are eight shades available, from blue to teal to chocolate brown to light cream. I grabbed three as soon as they went on sale in hopes to create a gorgeous, soft and shimmery look.

Clinique Lid Pop eyeshadow Willow Pop

WILLOW POP is a shimmery gold khaki.

Swatched dry above and damp on the bottom, this is a beautiful gilded khaki through and through. Not much colour shift, just gold reflections under direct light.

Clinique Lid Pop eyeshadow Vanilla Pop

VANILLA POP is a shimmery warm vanilla.

Swatched dry above and damp on the bottom. This is a bit sheerer than I had hoped but is a great base or highlight colour.

Clinique Lid Pop eyeshadow Petal Pop

PETAL POP is a gorgeous pink rose shade with a ton of gold shift.

Swatched dry above, you can see how sheer this can be. It reads more pink applied this way. Swatched damp, the gold shift really becomes apparent.

Dry application, Willow Pop in the crease, outer corner and inner corner. Petal Pop in the centre of lid and Vanilla Pop under the brow.

I also tried using Petal Pop on my cheeks and Vanilla Pop as a highlight. It’s a bit too sheer for that.

Applied damp (using Fix+) on the lid and blended out, you can see how heavy you can make Willow Pop. It was easy to blend out too!

I applied Petal Pop to the centre and inner corner of my lid, damp, and it’s hard to see it in this light but it shifts really nicely from soft pink (in the centre) to rose gold in the corner all depending on the lighting situation.

My thoughts: the formula for these is a lot like NARS Dual-Intensity or MAC Extra Dimension. These are sheer and buildable when applied dry and have a bit more of a powderless, metallic finish when applied wet.

The Clinique Lid Pop eyeshadows are available now at Sephora.

  • oh my gaaaaaah! Petal, get into my liiiife!

  • Amy Lyne

    They def look neat but I don’t know if I would pick any up. I never think to use single shadows!

  • Tanya Lovetere

    I love how they look wet. Way more metallic and pigmented.

  • I think Petal Pop could be a hit or miss depending on the skintone, but the colour is just SO UNIQUE!! Which of the colours would you recommend grabbing for a neutral-wearer (aside from a basic creamy beige/white shade)

  • Willow Pop looks so good!

    • Eyeshadow Addict

      Agreed!

  • Curly Ingrid

    I just fell in love with Petal Pop !!!

  • Beth Rizzo

    Does the Vanilla Pop have a super warm/yellowy tone? I NEED a new highlighter and the old clinique color I had been using has been discontinued. I don’t like shadows that are too white as highlighters or too yellow as highlighters – what was your impression in person? Thanks so much!

    • Not a super warm tone but it does lean yellow. This is ok for a highlight but very sheer. You may be better off with something from Makeup Geek perhaps?
