Makeup is so much better when it’s in a palette. All those shades lined up side by side, there’s something particularly magical about eye shadow palettes that make us feel all warm and fuzzy. So in celebration of our love affair with palettes, we thought we’d share with you the 3 that have taken centre stage on our vanity in the last month.
We’ve heard plenty about bareMinerals, but this is the first product we’ve owned from the brand. With all the praise for their line in the beauty community, our expectations were set pretty high, but fortunately bareMinerals pulled through. Buttery and blendable, these eye shadows are an absolute dream to work with. The colour pay-off of each individual shade is also incredible, so you don’t need to be heavy handed when swirling your brush into the palette.

For all the hopeless romantics out there, this one’s for you. All 3 shades in the palette look like they should be gracing the eyelids of every Disney princess. The dusty rose and beige shades are our favourite. Sweeped over the lids, this palette is perfect for #girlbosses on the go who have no time to spend fiddling with brushes and blending. For those with oily lids, we recommend using primer before hand, because you might look in the mirror to find naked eyelids by the end of a long day!
Last, but not least is our palette of the moment. It doesn’t need much of an introduction. If you saw our last Face of the Day, you’ll know how epic this palette is. Decked out with all the shades a girl could possibly want, this 2 tier masterpiece has been our go to for the last few months. We have just been blown away by the quality of the eye shadows. Each shade is pigmented and long lasting. With a mix of glitters and mattes, this palette really does give shadows from luxury brands a good run for their money.
