Clinique All About Shadow 8 Pan Palette

This is going to sound a bit bonkers but I don't really think about Clinique when I am looking for Makeup - I think Clinique ... I think white coats, I think 3 step programme, I think clarifying lotion.  I don't think colour makeup.  Of course Clinique surprised us all this Spring with their Cheek Pops so during a recent visit to my favourite Clinique Counter at Clearys Dublin (just the best staff in the world) they were having a gift with purchase, it has been ages since I bought a gift with purchase so I decided to treat myself.  

I had my eye on the eye shadow duo Strawberry Fudge after seeing it on the lovely Andreea (yourbeauty) but I spied with my little eye a limited edition 8 pan palette which looked very pretty. 

The sleek metal palette - a magnet for fingerprints - cost €39.00 - Clinique eye shadow duos cost €26.00 so this is a good deal.  The palette is slim, sleek and sturdy.  Perfect for travel.
Hello palette :0

The shades are listed on the back of the palette, the colours are a great range from very light to dark with perfect taupe in between.

The lightest shade in the palette is the least impressive, its a shade that I will not really use and I found it a little chalky when swatching.  The rest of the shadows are very buttery,  smooth  and pigmented (who knew Clinique's eye shadows were lovely and buttery?).
The darkest 4 shades are by far my favourite I use the lighter shades all over the lid and then the darkest shades as a liner or in the corner.
This is a great little palette and its perfect for travel or for those who bring their eye shadows around in their makeup bag.  Ill be paying a little more attention to Clinique's makeup from now on.  Anybody have any recommendations?
