When it comes to eyeshadow pallets I have to be very strict with myself. There’s just something about all the colors, and shimmer in a pallet that makes the five year old in me who wants to cover the world in glitter very happy. If I let that part of myself have free reign I’d have enough pallets to fill a closet. As it stands, I can still fit all my pallets into ONE vanity drawer!
Look at all the colors! Metallics, shimmers, and mattes; there’s enough here for so many looks.
The Tart Tartlette In Bloom pallet. My first ever. Its a basic, warm toned pallet that I would buy again. The colors are rich and easily blended, and smell like chocolate! And the mirror is a decent size. This is my go-to pallet to travel with.
The Metal Mattes pallet from Kat Von D. They shimmers in this pallet (top row) are the butterist shadows ever. The mattes are good (the burgandy is a little chalky) too. The pigment of these shadows is amazing; I don’t have to apply much to build the color up. Though the pallet looks kinda crazy color-wise (lots blue/greens), most of the pallet is actually neutral. When it came out, this pallet was $60, and I have to say, it is worth the price.
The Too Faced Bon Bons pallet. A good mix of warm neutrals and pinky shimmers. Of all my pallets this is my least favorite. The pigment isn’t as good in this pallet, although the shadows are pretty blendable. I have to build up the color quite a bit when I use this pallet, which is annoying if I’m trying to get out the door fast.
The Anastasia Beverly Hill Modern Renaissance pallet. A very warm pallet with a nice combination of mattes and shimmers. These colors are pigmented and easy to blend. The only downside is the well-documented dustyness of this pallet. Holy Moly is it dusty. Still pigmented, but whenever I use this pallet I HAVE to make sure I tap the excess off my brushes, or I’ll have a lot of fallout under my eyes.
And finally, the Jaclyn Hill Morphe pallet. Ain’t it just beautiful? Full of warm neutrals that are easily blended, with a few fun/crazy colors. And compared to my other pallets this one was cheaper at $38. I love this pallet. It makes me happy just to look at.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to cover my face in eyeshadow!
