Top Five Eyeshadow Palettes
Looking through my eyeshadow collection, I definitely tend to use palettes more often than singles, duos, or quads. Palettes have so much variability and you can use one palette to create many different eye looks, therefore I reach for them on the daily. Some are better than others, of course, so here are the ones that I use the most often!
I’ve had this little gem in my collection for several months now, but just recently started using it again. A lot of the shades are perfect for spring! I prefer shimmery/metallic shadows to matte ones, so this palette is perfect for me. It includes four mattes and six shimmers, all in very wearable but unique colors. My favorites are kitten, bubbly, luster, and bare, but I can honestly say that I use all of the shades. This palette is really high-quality and it’s a great value for money as it also includes a smudge stick! Full review here.
I definitely talk about this too often, but I adore this palette so expect to see it a few more times if you read my blog regularly! It’s a great shimmery neutral palette inspired by the ocean. The packaging, while hard to photograph, is to die for and the shadows have a great buttery formula. The shimmers in this palette are much better than the ones in the Tartelette in Bloom palette, which we’ll get to later. My favorites are mermaid, abyss, reef, starfish, and cove but again, I use all of them. Full review here.

Generally speaking, I’m a fan of neutral palettes. However, I feel like everyone who is makeup obsessed needs at least one color palette, so this is mine! There are some unique shadows in here and they’re all really pigmented. Every single shade is shimmery so sometimes I’ll use a matte palette and then pop one of these shimmery shadows into the crease or the lid. The quality of these shadows are nowhere near as good as the other palettes in this list, but this is one of my most-used palettes so I’m including it anyway. Let me know if you’d like a full review on this!
And back at it with the neutrals! Everything about this palette—the packaging, the shades, the quality, the scent—screamed my name. If I’m feeling a matte look, this is the palette I usually go to. My favorite shades are milk chocolate, black forest truffle, marzipan, hazelnut, haute chocolate, and cherry cordial. The colors in this palette are muted and very wearable. I will be doing a review on this soon so keep your eye out for that!
Another neutral, Tarte palette, this one is neutral with mostly matte shades. The mattes are incredibly soft, pigmented, and blendable. There are also a ton of ways to combine these shadows! At the moment I mostly use the left half of the palette, which has lighter shades, but the right side will be perfect for autumn and winter. Full review here!
