main squeeze

our new favorite eye makeup comes straight from the tube.

It's kind of a no-brainer, but whenever we have a choice between hitting snooze or adding an extra step in our beauty routine, those extra 5 minutes of sleep win out every time. And eyeshadow and shadow primer are usually the first to go on those days when we can't roll out of bed.

Luckily, thanks to a pair of two new products, we don't even have to wake up early to get brighter eyes. Clinique and Bare Minerals have each debuted a collection of shimmery shadows with a smooth squeeze formula and make your lids pop with just one swipe.

Each brand has similar shades like champagne, violet, and a rosy peach, but the Clinique Lid Smoothies go on sheer and last for up to 8 hours, while the Bare Minerals shadow/primer hybrid packs a more intense color.

Despite these differences, one thing's for sure: with shadows so quick and easy, you could do your makeup in your sleep.

Clinique Lid Smoothie, $19.50 here.

Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer Shadow, $18 here.
