Good afternoon everyone and it’s nearly a week until christmas 🙂
Today’s post will be on eyeshadow palettes in my collection. Please note these are my views on the products and are not influenced by other people.
- Zoeva Cocoa blend palette
Picked this beauty from sephora 4 months ago whilst upgrading my makeup collection. The standout colour is the cool reddish shade (warm notes). Pure ganache (bottom left first) and delicate actitivty (bottom right hand corner) are favourites too. Very good price as well! All of these shades are cool toned and are very smilar to the other palettes that I am about to mention below:

2) Zoeva Caramel melange palette
Wow, just wow! This was my first ever palette from Sephora and immediately fell in love with it. The colours are beautiful and easy to wear and can be worn day or night. The colours that really stand out are Aftertaste (Middle orange shade first row), 182 degrees (the next shade after), Liquid Centre (first row far right corner) and Almost Sunny (second row second last shade). The other shades were just as beautiful and easy to create. Highly recommend this one.

3) Zoeva Naturally Yours palette
Again I present to you another Zoeva palette. I bought this palette to see if it were different to any neutral paltettes on the market. For me this is lovely but it felt like an ordinary everyday neutral palette. I see resemblences with colours with the above two palettes and will use this as normal. Pigmentation still very good though and a good starter eyeshadow palette.

4) Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette
My most recent sephora purchase to add ot the collection. I wanted to try a higher priced eyeshadow palette to see if it was worth the hype. Turns out it’s a keeper for me. I was a little worried about the subculture palette and the bad reviews associated with it espeically with the fallout. None of the colours were appealing in the subculture palette as well. Some of the colours in the palette are similar with my Zoeva palettes but the colours are still gorgeous anyway. The downside is that you need to use a really good quality brush in order to get really good use out of the shadows. The brush inside the palette is rubbish in my opinion. The pigmentation is nice and buildable though. The higlighter shade is unique but is suprisingly subtle and blends beautifully.

5) Samantha Jade for Models Prefer All Over The Eye eyeshadow palette
This beauty buy at the fraction of the price from priceline is worth the money. I find that drugstore eyeshadows lack pigmentation but not with this product! The Scarlett shade on the bottom right hand corner is a maroon red that can be worn on its own or blnede with ohter colours. Downside that it was very hard to find in priceline as it was sold out nearly everywhere I went.

6) Nyx The Go To Palette Bon Voyage
Quite a nice starter palette with a blush highlighter and contour in one. The eyeshdows are subtle and easy to work with. Although I have the other above shadow palettes, I like to reach this out mainly for the highlighter contour blush side. A good ideal travel shadow.
