Clinique All About Shadow 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral Territory 2 is a new, limited edition palette featuring eight shades of eyeshadow in nude, natural shades.
Clinique did a stupendous job with this palette but it does combine some traditional nude shades of shadow but they have a nice twist of deeper, warmer shades like Black Honey Eyeshadow (hello awesome color!).
Let’s take a look!
The Clinique All About Shadow 8 Pan Palette comes in a slim line silver mirrored compact which is the home of eight eyeshadows, a generously sided mirror, and a double ended applicator for application.

I think the really nice part about this palette is the fact you can really light and office friendly with it or you can go evening out sultry with it. About 80% of the palette is made up of softer beiges, taupes, and roses but towards the end of the spectrum of shades you’ll find Black Honey Eyeshadow and Dark Brown Shade of Morning Java Quad (no idea why this has such a crazy long name) which spice things up and create more drama on lids.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to create Black Honey Eyeshadow should win the Nobel Peace Prize. Black Honey is fabulous as a gloss and a lipstick but even greater as an eyeshadow. This cherry brown is perfect on my big brown eyes and creates a very pretty mysterious look! I used it and Dark Brown Shade of Morning Java Quad for my look below just so you can see this isn’t all about nude looks!
The shades are quite buttery and smooth although fair warning some of the lighter colors are a little frosty such as Sugar Cane. I didn’t think these were as velvety as the shades in the Clinique All About Shadow Eyeshadow Quads nor as pigmented. They do have a beautiful texture but I think the quads have a superior formula. They are soft, blend easily, and wear quite strong on my drier eyes without fading or creasing. The finish varies here with satin, mattes, and frosts.
I think the Clinique All About Shadow 8 Pan Palette is one of those easy, essential eyeshadow palettes that’s quite versatile for easy work friendly looks or dramatic evening ones. Plus it doesn’t overwhelm with too much variety of shades! It’s just enough to create daily looks with an easy and friendly array of shades.
Likey this one!
