Who doesn't love a great makeup palette? I'm a palette collector myself and I just can't seem to pass up a good looking palette. While my palette drawer is overflowing, I of course have some palettes that I reach for more than others! Here are my top five palettes of the moment!
The Revealed 2 Palette has been the best surprise palette for me! I received the Revealed 2 in a BoxyCharm box. It has quickly become one of my all time favorite palettes. The shade range is magnificent. The shadows are a little bit powdery, but honestly they are so pigmented and blend out so beautifully, I cannot believe this palette is only $20-30! I have a complete video review on the Revealed and Revealed Two palette.
Thank you GetGlamGrace for gifting this palette to me last year! This is another surprise love. When this palette first released I was on the fence about picking it up. Luckily my friend Grace knew better for me! I'm constantly reaching for this palette not only for myself, but for my clients as well. The top row is matte and these shades are creamy, pigmented, extremely matte, and blend out beautifully. The bottom row is shimmer/satin shades and these are breathtaking! They are smooth, pigmented, and perform both wet and dry!
Oh my beloved NAKED 3 palette! As a makeup enthusiast I own all three of the NAKED palettes by Urban Decay, and as a natural red head with fair skin the NAKED 3 is my favorite. The rose tones just work so incredibly well for fair skin. Urban Decay knows how to formulate eyeshadows. Every shade in this palette is pigmented, blendable, and best of all it's just overall a fun palette! I love to use the shimmer shades with a little bit of MAC Fix+ to really make them stand out!
This is a palette I don't hear being talked about a lot and I don't know why! It is amazing! These matte shades have a little bit of a satin look to them but NO shimmer or glitter at all. Each shade looks matte on the lid and blend out like a dream. The largest shade in the palette, Transforming Pearl, can be used as a base shade to turn any of these matte shadows into a pearlized eyeshadow.
I have two words to say about this palette... Coco powder! YES this palette smells like chocolate! Too Faced uses actually coco powder in the formula of many of their products and that is what gives this palette is amazing smell. BUT it is an eyeshadow palette, not a chocolate bar so I do have a few other things to say about it. The formula of these shadows is smooth and pigmented. The matte shades are some of my favorites in this palette. You can easily take a look from day to night or colorful to neutral with just a couple steps!
From rose tones to chocolate scented eyeshadows, all five of these palettes have my heart! Which palette has yours?
