I’ve been doing as much as I can to stop my make up melting off my face in this ridiculous heat but I thought I’d take some time to show you through my palette collection :).
Some of these are oldies but goodies and some are newer additions to my make up collection. Palettes do tend to take up alot of space – especially when you have a particularly small room like I do. So being selective with palettes can sometimes be a must, read below for my honest opinion of the ones I own!
This palette still remains my firm favourite due to particular shades in it. It’s got a combination of matte shades but it’s mostly shimmery ones and all are beautiful. The packaging of this palette is a tad annoying because it doesn’t stay pretty for very long, being velvet on the outside but I guess mine hasn’t come off too badly!
Shades to look out for are Buck (amazing transition shade), Half-Baked (cult gold shimmer shade) and Sin (a beautiful pale silver/peach) 😀
Paying only £8 for a blush, highlight AND bronzer is pretty good if you ask me and these shades are well pigmented so worth the money. The downside to this is that all the shades contain shimmer so don’t even glance near this palette if you are looking for something matte! The blush is the star of this palette and it gives a beautiful peachy gold sheen.
This palette is gorgeous but I haven’t used it as much as I would have liked so far. You can read my in depth review of this palette by clicking here :). These shades are all really pretty and perfect for creating a subtle nude smokey eye – keep an eye out for the beautiful warm shimmery brown on the top row, in the middle!
MUA Palette (I turned this into a Make Up Geek Palette!) £however many MUG eyeshadows you pick 🙂
I made my own Z palette not too long ago by buying some magnetic sheet and breaking open an old palette 🙂 you can read how to do it by clicking here! This is a great palette when I want to do something dramatic. I’ve got a duo foil green shade in here, a beautiful iridescent gold shade and a deep burgundy red for the crease, you can get the shade names by clicking into my post above.
This palette has been drooled over more times than it’s been used which is sad :(. The gold glittery shade from this palette is still beautiful but you really need to rub your finger in it to get the right amount of pigment. The other shades are shimmery but much more pigmented – these are great but I don’t find myself reaching for it as much as other palettes.
Lorac Pro Palette, £30-£45
I bought my Lorac Pro Palette a good few years ago (let’s not think about how many months it is over it’s shelf life) so I don’t really remember it costing as much as £50 :S. This is still the second best palette I own, with amazing matte shades. There are some shimmer shades in here but the matte ones are the stars :). Taupe is one of my most used eyeshadows ever, very similar to Buck from the Naked palette but a different kind of warm brown.
Have you got any of these palettes? Which is your favourite?!
Thanks for reading
