Hello My Beauties

Eye shadow is the bomb.com, I think I own enough eyeshadow to give at least half of the Chicago population a fantastic smoky eye. Everyone needs that go-to palette, you know the one that is like their baby to them and if you don’t have that palette yet, you’ll be sure to fall in love with one of these.

As the saying goes: “eyes are the windows to the soul,” well if this is the case we better be sure that our eyelids look gorgeous and fab. Let’s get started!

 1. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection – $49

This will bring you happiness with every use because it smells like chocolate since it contains COCOA POWDER. The colors are gorgeous, too and it has many pinkish, plum and brown neutrals that range from matte to shimmer.

2. Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette – $29.95

So I bought this a few months ago when it was on sale for 50% off. It has every color you can possibly need or think of and the colors are SUPER pigmented.  Even though it’s not an everyday neutral palette, it is perfect for adding a pop of color. Plus it’s a great deal for the amount of shadows you get!


3. Maybelline The Nudes Palette – $9.99

4. Urban Decay Electric Pigment Pressed Palette – $49

This palette is so flawless and has such complimentary colors that you will totally get use out of every color. Each shade is gorgeous and neutral and offers different tones from dusty rose to golden shades. The names of the shades themselves make you feel sexy after applying them.

7. Stila Eyes Are the Window™ Shadow Palettes – $49

These come in a few different shades (Body, Spirit, Soul & Mind). They are all pretty and shimmery or matte colors that are sure to make your eyes stand out. Stila totally was vibing with the popular quote I referred to in the beginning of my post.

8. Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette $30

I just purchase her new shadow couture palette and I think these two will be used quite a bit. Everything Anastasia does is well thought out and calculating. That women is a genius in makeup.


9. NARS “And God Created The Woman” Palette – $59

Yes He did and quite beautifully I might add. Of course this palette had big shoes to fill or should I say pans to fill and it did just that with its unique collection of shades. These shadows are bound to give anyone that sultry and sexy movie star look. Although the price is a little steep keep in mind that this palette does come with an eye shadow primer and an eye brush! Bonus.

10. Melt Cosmetics Love Sick and Dark Matter Stacks $48 each

Melt-Eyeshadow-Stack-ReviewAlthough these are not considered palettes they are nonetheless must haves. Sold in a 4pc stackable magnetized shadow the colors are to die for. Love sick on the right has beautiful hues and that top shade called Amelie is so shimmery I love to use it on my lids. The Dark Matter stack on the left is currently sold out and should be restocking soon I hope because I don’t own this one but I’ve been waiting to grab it.

There are way more palettes that I could list but we would be here until tomorrow viewing all of them so I had to break it into 10 good ones that I feel will give any beginning makeup lover or someone looking to increase their palettes a good solid start.  I did not provide links because there are so many places out there to purchase these items.

What is your favorite eye shadow palette?
