I received this lovely little Clinique All About Shadow Duo in Beach Plum, as part of a gift-with-purchase offer from Myer a few weeks back and and it’s instantly became one of my favorite combos for a quick and easy eye look.
The Beach Plum duo is composed of a shimmery warm sandy beige and a medium plum with golden shimmer. Personally I love the duo as I think the shades are versatile on any skin tone. The gold shade adds warmth to my eyes and the plum shade looks lovely on the outer corners plus it’s perfect for creating depth. The texture of the the eyeshadow is soft and silky, however the plum shade feels somewhat gritty. It also looks sheer when swatched but it translates better on the eye in my opinion. As you can see both shadows are shimmery, but not overwhelmingly. As for fallout there is a bit of that too, so I prefer applying the shadows before my base and I always use a primer. So far the shadows appear to be crease and fade-resistant so overall I’m happy with the lasting power.
This is an easy to use, beautifully-coordinated wearable duo for both day and night time looks. If you prefer insane pigmentation with bold opaque colour this may not be th duo for you, however if you’re after something a little more subtle I think you’ll like this combo. All About Shadow Duos retail for $40 AUD.
