My top five eyeshadow palettes…


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.


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.


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.



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.


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.



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
