The Essence All About Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is neutral toned 8-shadow palette.
The All About Nudes Palette has a clear lid to easily see the colors inside. The palette is quite small, despite each shadow containing about 0.04 oz of product (0.05 is standard). Only one of the shades I would consider to be completely matte: the ivory on the top left. The rest of the top row has a bit of a satin finish, although blended in the crease they look pretty matte. The bottom row has a little bit more shimmer than the top row, but I'd still consider them satin. The only shade that is truly shimmery is the brown in the bottom right corner. The shadows are all smooth and soft; they have a bit of powder kickup because of the softness, but it has no effect on the pigmentation or application. These little Essence palettes are great for travel since they are so small and compact, but still contain plenty of product. This palette could easily provide the highlight, transition and crease shades for an everyday look in combination with other shadows, or on its own for a simple look.
