Just not a fan of Clinique shadows. I received this duo as a gift and probably wont use much. I prefer more build able shadows with more pigment and a creamier texture to the powder. Specifically i find the the shimmery too faced shadows, most urban decay (not mattes), mac, nars, benefit cream shadow, and especially Lancome shadows to be better. Clinique is just to sheer/ too dry a powder for my liking.
