My Favorite Eyeshadow Palettes

Rounding up my best eyeshadows

Last week, I wrote about my favorite face palette; there was no competition because I don’t have many face palettes and that one is perfect. But for eyeshadow palettes… I own several and have decluttered even more. So after testing them all week, I’ve finally decided on two that have tied for my favorite palettes.

The Ciate Pretty Palette isn’t talked about enough in my opinion, but it’s amazing. The shadows are soft, blendable, and highly pigmented. The packaging is super cute, and it’s compact, so I travel with it often. The shade selection makes it easy to create a variety of looks with this palette alone too. The right side is full of shimmers and the left has all mattes.

I especially love Bright Spark and Happy, which I wear all the time. My Tribe is the perfect under eye setting powder in a pinch too; I’m about to hit pan on it. It may seem like I’ve hardly made a dent in the others, but you need such a tiny amount because the colors are so pigmented.

The Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette is one of my most used eyeshadow palettes. Almost all of the shades are matte – except Blow, which is the perfect shimmery lid shade. I love that there are a mix of warm and cool tones in this palette.

The darkest shades work well as eyeliner, while a mixture of Nude and Pregram also works as an under eye setting powder for me. While this one may not be as “fun” in my opinion, it’s a staple and I would definitely repurchase it.

What are your favorite eyeshadow palettes? I probably shouldn’t add more to my collection… but I’d love to know!

    I was always tempted to buy that UD palette but I have most of their Naked palettes so I managed to restrain myself. It looks lovely, though! I like Tarte palettes, and just this week I got my first ColourPop palette: Give It to Me Straight. I haven’t played with it a ton yet but so far so good!

    1. Good call – you can probably find similar shades in those palettes. I actually don’t have any of the Naked palettes! So fun! I love their Super Shock Shadows; I really need to try one of the new palettes.
