Everytime I pass a drugstore, I pop in to see…
You don’t need 50 shades of grey, all you need is 8! The Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette in Wear Everywhere Greys is a mix of all kinds of greys, from taupes to silvers to almost blacks. You may remember my previous (amazing) experience with the 8-Pan Palette in Black Honey (review here), so of course I had to grab one of the new 8 shade “Wear Everywhere” palettes, of which there are five: greens, blues, greys, nudes, pinks.
Side note: I had the worst time white-balancing and color correcting the day I snapped this fresh out of the box palette, so I also included a high-res pro shot below from the brand.
Mr. Grey will see you now…
Fawn – a pearlescent beige (good for highlighting)
High Tea – satin matte taupe
Mushroom – taupe grey shimmer
Grey Matters – dark grey brown satin matte (my least favourite of the bunch, it can be patchy)
Sugar Cane – white frosty shimmer sparkle
Silver Lining – grey silver shimmer
Stormy – I don’t even know, it looks like a burgundy in the pan but it’s more of a dark brown with burgundy shimmer? Also a bit patchy.
Stroke of Midnight – an almost black matte, very pigmented!
Stormy in the crease (it looks patchy but that is just the scar on my lid, one of the reasons I rarely photograph my left eye).
Silver Lining on the lid.
Stroke of Midnight as liner.
A hint of Sugar Cane under my brows for some shimmer.
Despite my lid scars, I had way better luck with the rest of the shadows (and a special shout-out to Shadow Shields for that crisp winged line).
Silver Lining has a nice subtle silver shimmer without being too sparkly. And Stroke of Midnight is killer as an eyeliner, and this was applied dry.
THOUGHTS: Overall a few misses but more hits for me, and I love the durability of these 8-Pan Palettes (I even took one to Australia). This set is a great neutral everyday palette with lots of versatility. I think I’ll grab the green one next!
The Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palettes are $40 CAD available at Clinique counters and Sephora.
