Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow Trio Review & Swatches


Hi All,

I’m sure most of you must be aware of the Vellvette Box by now and today I’ll be reviewing the Clinique trio I got in the November box.

This compact palette contains the Colour Surge eyeshadow duo in Rosewine and the Soft-Pressed Powder blusher in Pink Blush. It also comes with a sizable mirror, a sponge tip applicator and a mini-blush applicator..I haven’t used the brushes since I don’t find they ever do a good job.

My experience with Clinique Trio Palette

The  Rosewine duo contains 2 neutral shades, one a deep brown similar to MAC Espresso and the other a neutral creamy shade which can be used as a highlighter as well. The Pink blush is a regular pink blush which is more like an essential pink.

  • Pigmentation: Pigmentation of all 3 shades in the palette are decent enough. The lighter eyeshadow shade needs a bit more work to show up than the other 2.

  • Texture: All shades are soft and blend easily.  The eyeshadows both are matte and the blush is a satin finish.
  • Staying Power: The eyeshadows last about 5-6hrs on my lids. The blush though, stays on for not more than 4hrs..lesser when I’m outside.

I like this palette for the basic reason that it’s compact and has the perfect everyday shades I need. The eyeshadow have to be my fav no doubt about that. But the blush is a diff story altogether. Seeing how pigmented it was (and the fact that its Clinique), I thought it would have a really good staying power. But I was sadly mistaken. I don’t mind reapplying lipstick repeatedly but blush and eyeshadow once applied I like not to have to wonder about it till the end of the day.

I didn’t have this luxury with the Clinique blush and it was such a disappointment I tell you..

What I love about Clinique Trio Palette:-


  • This is the perfect neutral palette for a girl on the go.
  • The eyeshadows have a good staying power
  • Comes with a full sized mirror and 2 applicators which would be very helpful in emergencies.
  • Compact and travel friendly
  • Easy to blend.


What I dislike about the Clinique Trio Palette:-


  • The blush is a huge disappointment thanks to its poor staying power


Ratings:  3.5/5

    • So did I…I was so happy when I got this…overall it’s quite handy but it’s wot I’d expect from any average product too… Nothing really that screams Clinique!

  1. i was kinda expecting this!i had recd a similar thing as GWP when i had gt some clinique stuff in US.. For me ,the products just dont show up or looked chalky

    • Yeps..I have another Clinique Gwp with me and it’s marginally better but yes..nothing great or worth the hype..I gues Clinique is better at skincare than makeup..
