I have rather a lot of eyeshadow palettes. I think I need to have a bit of a cull. The sad thing is, that they all seem to be the same colours – shades of brown. How original of me. Occasionally, you see a glimpse of a purple or dark green, and the random dark plum, but generally they are all shades of brown. Here are the five palettes I regularly reach for on a day to day basis.
TOO FACED CHOCOLATE BAR
Now I know that everybody has this palette, but this was quite a recent purchase for me. To be honest, I’m not bothered if it smells like chocolate, in fact, I would rather it didn’t because it only reminds me that I want to eat chocolate all day long! The colours are great and I have used them all – my particular favourites being Milk Chocolate and Haute Chocolate. They blend well and this is usually the palette I take if I am going away.
CLARINS THE ESSENTIALS PALETTE
I bought this palette last Christmas and it contains 10 shades of mainly brown, one dark purple and a pale pink base shade. There is also a quite chunky gold that I used over the Christmas period.
MAYBELLINE THE NUDES
A great drugstore palette, and as you can tell from the picture, it has been used extensively. A great mix of matt and shimmer shades and a black which is great for a smoky eye.
L’OREAL LA PALETTE NUDE ROSE
A great little palette, with soft pinky nude shades and a darker purple shade. This is perfect for travelling as it is compact and has a good sized mirror. Great autumnal shades.
TARTE TARTELETTE IN BLOOM
Finally, this Tarte palette is divine. I really love it. Beautiful shades of mainly nude warm browns and some darker colours for the smokey look. A great palette with a huge mirror, so again, this is a great palette to take on your travels.
How many of these palettes do you have? I don’t feel too guilty about having so many, because they are good value for money! At least that is what I keep telling myself.
Have a great week and come visit the blog next Sunday. xxx
