This series is part three of my five favorite eyeshadow palettes and five more eyeshadow palettes. Really this series should be called “MJ is an eyeshadow palette hoarder and needs help” Like I love most eyeshadow palettes and I follow so many makeup accounts on Instagram so I get to drool over all of the new releases all the time and that is such a problem for an MJ who is on a budget but can’t walk into an Ulta without spending less than $50 and that’s like one palette. It’s so expensive but it’s so nice, I have like 35 shades of a very similar brown and I see more neutral palettes and want all of them, even if all the shades are similar to those I already have.
Also I promised a post last weekend but I moved last week and I have been unpacking since then so I haven’t really had the inspiration to write a blog post because everything seems to be going wrong, but that is not for this space. That’s for Twitter, if you want to see my complaining tweets you can follow me on Twitter, if you want to see cute pictures of my parent’s dogs and my life, you can follow me on Instagram.
I am going to be completely honest, I don’t know if you can still purchase all of these palettes and I am sorry if there is one or two on this list that you can no longer get, these opinions are per usual all my own.
Lorac Tale as Old as Time
This has been one of my favorites for a while now and I didn’t want to post this in any of my other posts with eyeshadow palettes because I know that this was a promotional for the Beauty and The Beastreboot a few years ago. Lorac does some really great collaborations for films, I think they did one for Pirates of the Caribbeanand Alice in Wonderlandas well as others that I cannot remember now. I love the pigmentation of this palette, I have used it on several occasions and one of my favorite shades is Beast Mode which is a deep royal blue and I have for sure used it to do a deep blue smokey eye in the past. The packaging is a little extra but really cool, I feel like their movie tie palettes are always a little extra.
Too Faced Beauty Daydreamer
This was the Christmas palette this past year, you can read about it initially from my November Beauty Haul. Too Faced is one of those brands that I really enjoy for their holiday launches. This one was not only eyeshadow but also blush, bronzer, and highlighter so it’s a multi item palette and I was a fan of it. I for sure get one every year and I should stop because they have some pretty similar shades every year. I like the shades they are more geared toward the “holiday party” vibe but there are enough neutrals that you can pair it with another palette and do a nice look for any time.
Urban Decay Naked Heat
So I just bought this one last weekend, it was half off and I have wanted this palette since before it came out, Naked palettes are one of those things that I collect like Pokémon, gotta collect them all. Currently I am only missing the Naked Cherry and the Naked 2 palettes. I love the shades in this and I cannot wait to actually dive into it, I accidently dug into the shade He Devil, oops. Also I have to glue the mirror back in because it fell out as I was writing this paragraph. The packaging on this palette is phenomenal and I am so in love with it.
Colourpop It’s a Princess Thing
This was one of my Top Beauty Products of 2018, it was my first foray into Colourpop even though I have been a fan of the brand for a few years now. Now that some of the brand is in Ulta I have been able to be exposed to more of it. Colourpop is one of those brands that brings out so much product and so many launches and they are all so unique and their quality (over everything I have) has been great. They also have a really great price point, their concealer is like $8 and I love it just as much as I love my Urban Decay concealer. They came out with a Disney Villains palette earlier in the year and I also want that one but I never did purchase it, clearly I don’t need any more palettes, seriously I don’t, but will I get more, yes I will because when it comes to makeup I have no control over myself, like a crow with shiny things.
Urban Decay Born to Run
This one came out last year and I immediately went in and bought it, I love the shade range within the palette and I was in love with the packaging, it brought out my inner wanderlust and I just needed it. The palette is 24 pans which is actually pretty large for an eyeshadow palette and there is a shade for everyone in this palette, seriously 24 eyeshadows could create so many looks.
Well that’s it, I could write so many more of these posts and maybe once a year I will but for now these are the five that I have been digging this year.
Do you have a favorite palette? What is your favorite eyeshadow shade name?
I’ll see everyone later in the weekend with another post, the package hopefully is now in my mailbox so I will be writing that post for Sunday, I am really excited for that post as well and I will see you all then!
