Best of the Best: Eye Shadow Palettes

Eye shadows, galore!

Eye shadow palettes are great because a bunch of makeup experts put a group of eye shadows that look awesome together all in one place. They’re compact and easy to travel with and cheaper than buying several different individual eye shadow colors separately. Here are just a few of our favorite picks!

BH Cosmetics — 88 Color Matte Palette

BH Cosmetics remains a pretty underrated brand, probably because its items can only be found on the company’s website. At a regular price of $18.75, you get a palette with 88 shadows. That’s less than 20 bucks for 88 great quality, long-lasting shadows! Unbelievable. Aside from the Matte Palette, BH also carries palettes with shimmery shadows, as well as nudes.

Nyx Shadow Palette in Champagne & Caviar

I love the versatility of this palette. Most of the 10 shadows are in the nude category, but it also contains a black, a dark brown, and a white which is perfect for a highlight color. That means the palette has everything you need for an every day eye look as well as a dramatic smokey eye. Find it at Ulta stores for $10.99.

Too Faced Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection

This one is also great for both every day use and nighttime. It contains some matte and some shimmery shadows — all that would make any eye color pop. These palettes also contain several Get-The-Look cards which give you step-by-step instructions on how to achieve different makeup looks. Find it at Sephora for $35.

Urban Decay Ammo Palette

This is one fierce set of shadows! All of them contain either a slight shimmer or chunky-glitter. Although most of these sultry shades are too bold for every day use, there are a few browns and golds that look phenomenal during the daytime. Find this at Sephora for $38.
