Top 5 Favourite Eyeshadow Palettes

I love a good eyeshadow palette. It’s only in the past month that I’ve started doing proper eye looks and I’ve been loving it. I thought I’d share with you my five favourite eyeshadow palettes…

  1. Too Faced Love Palette (£39)

This is my favourite palette EVER. I love it a hella lot. I cannot recommend it enough, you get such a gorgeous range of shades, some are matte, some shimmery and some ‘pearl’, all fifteen are stunning though. The pigment on each colour is insane, they stay on all day and blend so easily. This palette also comes with a black eyeliner which I like to use to draw my flick before I go over it with liquid eyeliner.

My go-to look with this palette is to use the second lot of five shadows. I put ‘Smitten’ the pearl shade all over my lid, taking it right up to my brow, this makes a nice base and is really brightening. I then put a tiny bit of ‘Romance’ in the crease to add a bit of definition to my eye. I then pack ‘Passion’ all over my lid and messily add more ‘Romace’ into my lid. I go back in with both of these colours, blending and adjusting it until I’m happy.

2. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette (£39.50)

I’ve had this palette for the least amount of time and it’s already my second favourite. The packaging is rose gold which is just to die for and the shades are perfect for a lover of pink/rose gold shades like me. I love the matte shades but those glittery metallic ones are just phenomenal. The pigment is like nothing else! You get a double ended brush with this which is such a good blending brush, I usually throw away the brush that comes with an eyeshadow palette but I’m not parting with this one.

My go-to look with this palette is to use ‘Strange’ all over my lid as a base colour. I then put a mix of ‘Nooner’ and ‘Limit’ all over my lid to add some colour and then apply a mix of ‘Dust’ and ‘Buzz’ as a glitter look. I will only very lightly use ‘Factory’ in my crease, if I’m going for a glittery eye look I don’t want too much focus on the smokiness but on the pop of glitter. (I’ve not annotated this palette as the names are visible!)

3. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (£39)

This was the first highend makeup item that I bought and the first eyeshadow palette that I bought. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the packaging of this, it is literally faultless I’ll never fall out of love with it. Let’s also take a moment to appreciate the smell, it smells like a chocolate bar!! Too Faced got everything right with this palette which is why I love and rate it so much. This palette has a nice mix of both matte and glimmer shades, each one is stunning and so easy to use and incorporate in your everyday makeup. The highlighter in this palette makes it so worth the money, it’s the most pigmented, stunning highlighter I’ve used and wish it would never hit pan!

My go-to look with this palette is to use ‘White Chocolate’ all over the lid for the base then ‘Hazelnut’. I use a mix of ‘Milk Chocolate’ and ‘Semi-Sweet’ in my crease, these are the best colours for doing this as they’re so warm and easy to blend. Depending on what I’m feeling on the day I’ll either use ‘Marzipan’ or ‘Creme Brûlée’ for a not too intense glitter look. I use ‘Champagne Truffle’ on my inner eye and to highlight under my eyebrows, I sometimes use this as my go-to highlighter as it’s gorgeous!

4. No7 Limited Edition Nudes Palette (£15)

I got this palette for Christmas and was amazed by it. For such a small palette, the shade range is really good and the shadows themselves are of such good quality. They are all so pigmented. The size of this palette makes it perfect to use for travelling or to chuck in your bag especially as you can do multiple looks with the colours that you get. I also love the gold packaging of this.

My go-to look with this palette is to use the second neutral shade all over the lid for a base and the seventh mauve colour also all over the lid. I usually go for a simple look with this palette so will finish the look off with blending the fifth shade into my crease.

Sadly, this palette was limited edition at Christmas but I’ve had a look on Boots and found one similar here.

5. Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette (£4)

This palette comes last based upon the quality of the shadows alone. Although the shades do have a nice pigment, they have a bit of fall out and are harder to blend then the others. I still love this palette though, the shades are gorgeous and I have a few go to ones from here. For £4 this is amazing.

My go-to look with this palette is to use the first then second shade as a base. I’ll use the fourth shade which is a really pigmented pink glitter shade all over then define my lid by adding the sixth brown shade into the crease. This is another simple yet really effective look.


I think this is the palette that I have but I’m not 100% as I received this in a Christmas set but here is the closest I can find.

Thank you ever so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite eye shadow palettes!
