I have been toying with doing this post for awhile but really wanted to get my favourites concrete. I have a obscene amount of eyeshadow palettes because, well I love palettes. They just draw you in like chipotle on a Thursday night. I thought I would share with you my favourite palettes from past to present and why they are my faves.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills soft glam eyeshadow palette. A newbie to my collection. This palette is a wonderful neutral palette with pops of warm tones and is the most satisfying of my palettes to hold. If the Modern Renaissance and Subculture are daunting, to you this would be a really good palette to have. It has this beautiful rose gold shade that spoke to me and so did the bronze one right beside it (can you tell I love sparkly things). Also, its a woman owned business so that is always a bonus in my book.
The Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. Ah the third Naked palette to add to my collection (I had the Naked 2 for a longggg time, but it reached the end of its life after 4 years of having it in my collection, hit pan on many shades and using it constantly, still has a special place in my heart). I love this palette. So funny story, for some reason I was really resisting this palette, and because I wanted these warm rusty tones, I used my shoppers points for a PUR palette (which I love and use as it has cool toned shades and warm toned which are glorious), but this palette was still in mind. Alas, when I was done writing my law exam in December, I bought this bish. It is beautiful, I love the warm brown tones, the purples, basically the whole thing. Is it bad that the Naked Petite Heat and original Naked palette are both on my wish list?
Too Faced Sweet Peach. Another classic. I love this! I haven’t been using as much as of late, mostly because I have been waking up late and just throwing on a super light shade from my 100% Pure Naked 2 palette, but this one is so beautiful. It has beautiful warm browns and shimmery bronzes, not to mention the amazing formulations of the peach shades, which I think (not that I’m a scientist) are hard to perfect. I love the scent too (which also scares me because how to they make it smell so good? What if your allergic to peaches?) . Probably not the cleanest of ingredients but it’s a favourite.
The Urban Decay Naked 3 – a controversial choice but it is one of my favourite palettes. I find it is super subtle and easy to use. I like the formula, granted not as great as the Naked Heat formula, but it’s a great beginner palette and fun fact: I have worn this palette each time I have went to a job interview and got the job. You could say it’s my good luck palette. I love how subtle it is so that when I am at say, a new workplace, a conference, a meeting, I wear this because it makes me feel good. I always follow Elanna Pecherle “I feel pretty” tutorial because she makes such a nice taupe, subtle (how many times can I say this word) look with this.
