In the past few months I have become and eye shadow addict! Eye shadow was never a part of my daily makeup routine but it seems to have made its’ way in there! I have grown my collection of eye shadow palettes and there are now a few high end ones in there too so I have decided to share my top 3 high end eye shadow palettes with you all!
Going in reverse order, the third in my top 3 eye shadow palettes is the Zoeva Rose Golden Eye Shadow Palette! This is my most recently purchased palette and I am so glad I purchased it! The shades are very pigmented and blend very easily, I will definitely be after some more of Zoeva’s eye shadow palettes! I love rose gold, copper and champagne toned eye shadows and that is exactly what this palette gives me! My favourite shade right now is ‘Copper Is King‘ which you can see close up above in the third image. It is perfect for when you want the extra shimmery pop to your eyes however there aren’t many neutral shades so it is not a palette I reach for everyday but I have experimented with a few different looks with these shades and they would be perfect for going out but they are still subtle colours so if you like a bit of shimmer everyday then you would love this! I do prefer a bit of shimmer/champagne shades daily but I don’t want to be looking too done up for just college so that is where my second favourite palette comes in!
The very first high end eye shadow palette I owned, the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette! To start with the packaging is beautiful I love it! (definitely not because it’s rose gold…) hehe! I love the range of shades in this palette, it has matte neutral shades but also some shimmery shades too. This palette would be perfect for spring as it has a lot of pink/rose shades. There is a quite dark shimmery shade called ‘Blackheart‘ but I tend to use it in the crease to smoke out my eye. All the shades are very pigmented, far more than the zoeva shades. They blend so easily and I often reach for this daily when I want a neutral eye look with a light colour on the lid that blends into a slightly darker/brown shade in the crease but keeping it subtle and not too bold. I am so glad I chose this as my first naked palette although I hope to soon own the rest! I definitely recommend this and it was a great investment! Unlike the Zoeva palette this one also has a mirror inside it which is super handy!
And my all time favourite eye shadow palette is the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani eye shadow palette! In all honesty I only purchased this palette because it had just been released and I wanted to try something different that I wouldn’t normally do and I could also review it on my blog, for quite an expensive palette this was a risk worth taking and I ended up falling completely in love with the palette! The packaging is so simple yet so pretty and retro I love it! There is a huge range of colours from a light shimmery white to matte black! There are many neutral shades but also a shimmery champagne, pink, electric blue and gold shades if you are going for a more bold look! I love this as rather than having a neutral shades palette and a more colourful shade palette it is all in one which makes it easier to just pack this if you are going away on holiday and need that variety! The shades are some of the most easy to blend shades I have ever come across and the pigmentation is surreal! If I want to go for something a bit more ‘out there’ and pigmented in my daily routine then I will reach for this palette over the Naked 3 using the lightest shade ‘baby‘ on my lid and blending a fairly darker brown/maroon shade into the crease and outer corner called ‘serious‘. This palette is limited edition so I suggest you grab one as soon as you get the chance! I can assure you that you will love it! I can’t explain how much I love this palette but if you want to here more about what I think of it then click here to read my review!
So that is my top 3 eye shadow palettes in reverse order! I definitely recommend all of these palettes, They have pigmentation that one could only dream of and you can create so many gorgeous looks!
