My Top 5 Eye Palettes






I'm an eye palette hoarder and I have no excuse for the amount of palettes I own other than I have an addiction so as this is my final installment of my top five series I had to dedicate it to eye palettes. Urban Decay are hands down my favourite brand for palettes as you can see from the photo and who can blame me? Their eye shadow formulas are pretty incredible. Each palette is a little on the pricey side but I have chucked in a high street bargain for good measure too! 

The vice 3 was Urban Decay's limited edition from last years holiday collection and I'm currently trying to talk myself out of buying the Vice 4. It has the best mix of colourful blues, pinks and purples housed next to some gorgeous neutral shades. I reach for this palette daily and have just hit pan on two of the shadows. The mirror is also huge so I tend to use it to do my make up in bed if I'm not quite awake enough to stand at a mirror. 

I have all three of the Naked palettes, (I don't count Naked Smoky because I'm not overly a fan) and the original Naked palette is 100% my favourite with Naked 3 being a close second. I use each and every shade, the powders are buttery and easy to blend, with each shade lasting for hours without creasing. Golden hues are my go to and Naked covers each base. I just wish they would bring the palette out in the tin packaging because it would be so much cleaner and I'd be first in queue to buy it. 

I bought the Naked Basics from a friend who didn't get on very well with matte shadows, I luckily love them so alongside the Vice 3, I use this most days. The small, slim palette houses six must have neutral shades perfect for day to day wear with the darker shades meaning you can achieve a smoky neutral eye pretty quickly for night time. I wouldn't be without this as the shades are soft, silky and a dream to apply.

I should really write an ode to Mac eye shadows because they're incredible! I bought my pro palette in January of this year and have slowly started to build it up. I have four more spaces left, five technically because I have two pans of Naked Lunch in there as it's my favourite shade ever. I love the pro palettes because you can customise them to exactly what you want. I find with some palettes that you don't use all the shades so this is the perfect resolution to that problem. I need some more shade recommendations so please let me know what your favourites are. 

Lastly is my bargain of the bunch, Birthday Suit by Seventeen. It's cheap and the packaging is not that pretty to look at but the shades are beautiful! There's a mixture of mattes, shimmers and cream eye shadows including a primer to stop the shadows from creasing. The shadows are really fab quality and last a full day at work, pushing well into the evening which makes going from work for cocktails a breeze. There is also a darker, smoky version which is also really beautiful. 

What are your go to eyeshadow palettes?

  4. Naked Basics and Basics 2 are my most used palettes, I love them! You can't go wrong with Naked 1 either! I have a bit of an addiction to palettes too even though I only wear mattes daily!
