With so many great eyeshadow palettes on the market it can get quite overwhelming to know which one to invest your money in. Today I’ll share my thoughts about some of the eyeshadow palettes I own and hopefully this will help you with your purchasing decision xx
The infamous Urban Decay Naked Palette, how could I not include. This was my first high end eyeshadow palette and I’ve put it to good use as it has a great selection of neutral, cool toned eyeshadows, ranging from light shades to dark smouldering shades. The eyeshadows range in pigmentation with some being extremely pigmented while a few being chalky. There is a good selection of matte shades, however most are shimmery shades. There is some fall out, but nothing a big fluffy brush can’t fix.
I know this is a difficult eyeshadow palette to get your hands on in Australia but it’s worth mentioning. The quality of these eyeshadows are amazing! The pigmentation is top notch, the texture is buttery and easy to blend, the only down side is the fall out. There’s also a great selection of cool and warm tones and matte and shimmers. While I don’t use this palette as much as I should, you should definitely keep this in mind as it has a mixture of neutral shades and colourful yet wearable eyeshadows.
I won’t go into too much detail as I did a full review here which you can check out. In summary this is a great drugstore eyeshadow palette and quite similar to the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, minus the matte shades.
My latest eyeshadow obsession is with these gorgeous makeup geek eyeshadows! I’ve recently done a review so makeup sure to check them out here. Basically if you decide to go down the route of making your own eyeshadow palette make sure to buy a Z palette.
My MAC eyeshadows are some of my most used eyeshadows. I think when you make your own palette you end up deciding on shades you know you’ll use all the time. You can’t go wrong with MAC eyeshadows, the quality is amazing, the price not so much… Click here to find out my top MAC eyeshadow recommendations.
Ultimately be realistic about the shades you will actually wear. If you know you’ll only wear neutrals than stick with neutrals and buy individual eyeshadows if you want a pop of colour. With all eyeshadow palettes there will always be a few dud shades or shades you won’t use, that’s when custom made eyeshadow palettes such as Makeup Geek and MAC are awesome.
