Aloha, beautiful people of the inter-webs! Today, I am collaborating with Abi from justbeingabi.blogspot.com and we decided on posting our top 5 eye pallets. If you want to read her post, she has more drugstore ideas. This is going to be a mixture of high-end and high-street/drugstore, so all of you can benefit from this. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of eye shadow pallets available in the drugstore market, so most of the pallets here are high-end, but one is drugstore… One disclaimer is that I love the naked line from Urban Decay, so I may have three of them mentioned here…Okay, so let me tell you one thing before you go. Abi, is a sweet-heart and you should really check her out. Her writing style is amazing and she is just a sweet person in general. I have only talked to her through email, but I can tell.
Lets start with the drugstore pallet first, since it is the only one. It is the Maybelline The Nudes pallet. I have been using this a lot recently, and have been loving it. I only really started using it this last month, but I actually bought it back in December. I have a review going up on this soon, so just wait for that. It has 12 shades in here and most of them are really good quality, but some are really chalky; more on that in the review.
The next pallet is the Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes contour kit. If you want an in-depth review, I have one up already for you, but for now I will just give you a brief review It is technically a trio, but I still count it as a pallet… It has three gorgeous shades and a concealer. It has a small packaging which is awesome for travellers. The shades in here blend beautifully together, and look natural yet have a youthful shimmer.
The third pallet is the Naked Basics pallet from Urban Decay. I love this pallet so much! If I had to choose one pallet to use for the rest of my life, then i would choose this. It has all mattes then one shimmer highlight. My all time favourite eye-shadow is also from this pallet as you may know; it is faint- the medium matte brown. I also have a review on this if you want to read a full post on it. I seem to have a review on all of these pallets.
The fourth pallet is also from Urban Decay, actually so is the one after this.This is the Naked 2 pallet. If you read my blog, then you know that I love this pallet to death. Whenever I want a shimmery look, this is what I grab. I used to wear this everyday, but now, I wear more matte shades- hence me loving the naked basics. One of my favourite shades in here is Bootycall, and I actually use that with a lot of looks as a highlight. If you want to read a full review, I have one up also.
The fifth and final pallet is the Naked 3 pallet. I am sorry for putting a lot of the Naked pallets in here, but they are my favourite and I also payed a lot for them, so I am using them as much as I can. When i first saw this in Sephora, I thought it would make me look like I had pink eye because of the rose tones, but in reality, it makes your whole look a lot more flirty and cute. The rose tones make a more romantic look than bronze tones. I like to wear this in the spring time, for some odd reason, but you can wear anytime you wish. I also have a full review on this, if you would like to read that.
