EYESHADOW PALETTES / MAKEUP COLLECTION -7-
Who has ever stood in front of an eyeshadow palette, brush in hand, wondering where to begin, which shade to hit first? It is this constant choice -or at least the illusion of- which I love the most about eyeshadow palettes, they’re also very pretty to look at!
-In this post, I’m only focusing on palette with 6 and more shadows in them-
In order of appearance:
Urban Decay Naked Basics and Naked 3 palettes
Zoeva Nude Spectrum and Cocoa Blend palettes –more about them–
Becca Ombre Rouge Eye palette –the review–
Viseart 01 Neutral Matte palette –the review–
Pixi Copper Peach Mesmerizing Mineral Palette –more about it–
FOR THE EASIEST APPLICATIONS
Because I’m far from being an expert at applying eyeshadows, I genuinely don’t keep a palette whose consistency is stubborn and/or patchy. In that sense, I recommend all of them with, however, a bonus point for the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Copper Peach and the Viseart 01 Neutral Matte Palette.
On the other hand, pigmentation isn’t my number one criterion or priority with eyeshadows, yet, if it’s yours, I would reach for Viseart for a matte finish and Zoeva for some intense shimmery shades.
Even with a primer underneath, each of these shadows have a different resistance towards the hours of wear, weather conditions and the amount of time I rub my eyes in a day: I find the Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette, both of the Zoeva Cocoa Blend and Nude Spectrum Palettes and, finally, the Pixi Copper Peach Mesmerizing Mineral Palette very impressive!
FOR SOME DEFINED EYES
A defined eye requires both some beautiful neutral shades and a texture which isn’t too heavy on the eyes. For that specific task, the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette is my absolute favourite yet I do really love my new Viseart 01 Neutral Matte Palette as well.
I do love a powder which blends into nothing once on the eye, it just makes the latter look more light and awake whilst bringing out the shade’s intensity. Urban Decay, Becca or, again, Viseart are particularly finely milled shadows which will never look too chalky on the eyes.
FOR SOME FLATTERING, INTENSE SHADES
Finding shades which have the ability to highlight my khaki green eyes isn’t always easy. If I always go back to the Pixi Copper Peach Mesmerizing Mineral Palette when I want my eyes to pop, the last two shades of the Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette are absolutely gorgeous as well! A little more on the subtle side of things, some of the Zoeva Nude Spectrum and Cocoa Blend shades are universally flattering.
