Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette in Wear Everywhere Greys

Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette in Wear Everywhere Greys

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…


Clinique All About Shadow Wear Everywhere Greys swatches 1

Clinique All About Shadow Wear Everywhere Greys swatches 2
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!

Mushroom didn’t have as much “oomph” as I had tought it would and Grey Matters was a bit patchy.

BUT… I am in love with High Tea for an everyday crease and blending shade and Fawn is the perfect shade for under my brow.

LOOK 2:
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.

  • LOOK AT THAT WING.

    I just got this palette and it seems like a hit and miss from your review but there are some pretty shades I’m excited to try. Still want the black honey one though!

    • That Black Honey palette is everything! And you need Shadow Shields! I should seriously work for them the amount of business I send their way.

      • Oh god. I’ve been eyeballing the Black Honey one…

  • Um yeah. Killing it.

    • Shadow Shields. The magic begins tomorrow…

      • I usually use tape for stuff like that. Do you notice a difference between tape and the shadow shields?

        • I’ve used cloth tape before and it’s similar but it has left reside on my skin before. plus these are semi-circle shapes!

          • lol I’ve just used regular scotch tape. I like the idea of the semi-circle though.

  • Daaaaaaaaaaaaang. That wing tho.

  • I don’t love this one as much as the Black Honey palette as the colors are a lot less pigmented on me but it is one of the first grey palettes I’ve used that doesn’t look ashy on me!

    • I like that these are warm greys as opposed to a ton of silvers. This is now my office desk drawer palette for emergencies.

  • you have SUCH defined shadow borders!!! i can usually do the one on the edge with tape but any borders on my crease are always muddy
