Pick a Palette!

5 Aug

If you’re an eyeshadow lover, then this post is for you. I am an eyeshadow lover and  my go-to combo would definitely  be a neutral smokey eye.  I’m often asked what brand I like most and there isn’t one answer, that’s for sure.   After years of trying shadow after shadow I keep going back to the same brands; MAC, Urban Decay, Smashbox and NYX!  Yes NYX is included on my list.  NYX is a very reasonably priced makeup brand that I love and have great quality products for the price. They have excellent shadows and also sell my favorite soft matte lip cream, which is amazing!!!! All I want in an eyeshadow are great colors, incredible color payoff, long lasting wear and high pigment and these brands provide that consistently!  I do use primer so that my shadow pops and because I naturally have oily lids that cause my eyeshadow to crease after only a couple hours of wear. ok back to the shadows.  I am a fan of palettes because they are super fun, easy to take on the go and are almost always a better deal than buying everything separate.  As a fan of the neutral smokey eye, Urban Decay’s Naked palettes are perfect…..I am especially a fan of the Naked 2 palette!  I have recently discovered some other palettes worth trying and have been very happy with them as well. Here is the list starting with my favorite Naked 2.

Urban Decay Naked 2 palette($50): Includes 12 shadows, a dual sided shadow brush and a travel sized lip gloss. available at Sephora.

Urban Decay Smoked palette($49): Includes 10 shadows, a full sized eyeliner and a travel sized eyeshadow primer my fav primer. Available at Sephora.

Smashbox Masters palette($59): Includes 28 shadows, 4 brow powders, 8 cream eyeliners, 2 blushes, 3 highlights and 4 lip glosses. Available at Sephora.

NYX All I ever wanted palette($28): Includes 72 shadows, 8 face colors, 6 lip colors and 4 blushes. available at NYX.

Note: MAC and Urban Decay also sell empty palettes that you can fill with the eyeshadow colors of your choice.
