Few days ago I asked on Twitter if you'd like to see my makeup collection, eyeshadow palettes or maybe lipsticks, and more girls said they want to see my eyeshadow palettes. I decided to show you my bigger palettes in this post, and if you want to, I can show you the rest of my eyeshadow collection in separate one. So, here they are :)
*warning* this is one long post.
I absolutely adore Sleek i-divine palettes. I think they are my favourite. Eyeshadows are soft, colour pay off is amazing, I love the texture of them and I even like the packaging.
From left to right: Storm, Au Naturel and Chaos.
They are mineral based eyeshadow palettes, says on the back :). They cost around 12 € each.
I have 2 palettes from BeautyUK. I don't like that they don't have names on them; the left one is called Glitz and right Twilight. Eyeshadows are great, but somehow I don't use them that often. They are quite pigmented, the texture is soft, but I think Sleek eyeshadows are softer and easier to apply.
They cost around 6 € each,
Well, this is not just an eyeshadow palette, since I have also blushes in here, but I wanted to show it to you anyways. It's magnetic palette from Artdeco. Currently I have 5 eyeshadows from them. I really like Artdeco eyeshadows or should I say Artdeco in general. I really like texture and pigmentation. Blushes are also amazing, as you can see in the picture :).
Colours from left to right: 6, 288, 542, 602 (it fell on the flor and broke:/) and 218.
I bought NYX palettes on eBay and I was so excited when I got them, but that excitement didn't last. I think these eyeshadows dry my eyes and irritate them. Maybe it's because of the contact lenses, never tried them without lenses though. Anyone having the same problem? I'm not really familiar with the ingredients though ...
However, colours are nicely pigmented and soft, some of them look better in the palette than on eyelids (just being honest :D).
Left one is from The Runway Collection: Jazz Night (bought it because it reminded me of one of Kat von D's Beethoven palette) and right one is Smokey Eyes.
Another NYX palette. It's Glitter Cream Pallet in Surral. I absolutely hate it. Haven't used it much as you can see, but you cannot work with these glitter. I tried them on top of the eyeshadow, put eyeshadow on top glitter, I applied them separately ... Always get a fallout all over my face and glitter is gone from its place before I finish my makeup.
Anyone knows how to make them work? Or should I just throw it away?
I can't remember the price of any NYX palette.
I discovered MUA cosmetics not so long ago and I'm glad I did. I could compare these to Sleek palettes. Colour pay off is amazing, and they are soft and easy to apply. Left one is Heaven on Earth, right one is Undressed (a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked palette:)). I paid 3£ for each.
(Don't tell anyone: I will be giving away both of the palettes is my future giveaways :))
I haven't used previous two that much, since they are quite new, but I have used MUA Immaculate collection palette a lot. I got this palette for free with my order from their site, and I absolutely adore all colours. You can do so many looks with just this palette.
My next palette is my Z palette. You buy an empty magnetic palette and put different depoted eyeshadows or blushes or whatever you want to put in it. In my palette I put Essence, Avon, Revlon matte, Oriflame, Alverde and Wet'n'Wild shadows. I like that I can put all shapes of pans in it and a lot of them as well.
It was around 20 €.
I also have Aqua makeup palette. It comes in handy for Halloween, masquerades and fantasy makeup. You activate colours with water, sometimes I even use mixing solution for pigments. I almost completely used up white colour, been doing a lot of clown, Joker and Geisha looks apparently :).
I think it was somewhere from 15 - 20 €, I have it for two year now.
This palette was my first bigger eyeshadow palette, Coastal Scents 88 Color Eye Shadow Palette. I had it for three year now and I think it's a good starting point for everyone who is new to makeup, but want to experiment with colour and don't want to spend a fortune on it.
I have a sentimental connection with this palette. I did so many "first" things with it: filled in my brows, stopped being scared of using black eyeshadow, used eyeshadows as blush, started using eyeshadows as liners, did my first fake blood ... Everyting basically :)
I paid 35 € for it, I would probably get it for cheaper now, but I don't regret my purchase.
Another 88 palette is 88 color palette from BHcosmetics. I woudn't get it if it wasn't on discount (I don't remember the price). I used it few times, all eyeshadows are shimmery, texture is basically the same as Costal Scent palette and you get nice range of colours. So, if you like shimmah shimmah, I recommend it to you (I am thinking about selling it).
Last but not least, is W7 with 77 eyeshadows. I received this palette as a Christmas gift last year (thanks:)). You have a lot of neutral colours along with blues, greens and silvers. They are not as pigmented, I would say it's a good choice for ladies who don't like too bald colours. All of them have teeny tiny shimmer in them.
If you'd like to see a review on any of these palettes, let me know!
