Eyeshadow Palette you need for Christmas!

Makeup palettes are my thing right now. I love them. Whether it is a contour kit, eyebrow kit, a lip palette or an eyeshadow palette - I love it. We all know they come in all different shapes and sizes and this year I have been introduced to so many amazing brands that I have put them all into one post.


Art Deco Most Wanted Palette to Go is a recent addition to my stash but it is a great palette none the less. I opted for the nude version over the trend version, not that I am sure you will be surprised. 
With eight highly pigmented and super finely milled hues, mostly matte shades, it is a palette that I am enjoying getting to know and use and at £18.50 here, I think money well spent.

Blank Canvas Cosmetics is a brand that I came across only recently and this is a palette I have used constantly and reviewed in full here. The Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One contains 12 beautiful neutral, but mostly matte eyeshadows that can be used to create a range of looks to take you from daytime subtle to evening smokey eyes. 
Of these 12 shades, 11 are beautiful velvety matte shadows and what I love about them is that they range in shade from a palest shade (Lily) which you can use as a base right up to what is the very deepest brown (Corruption). The final shade is a shimmery champagne-toned highlight shade called Goddess which is stunning. At under £30 it is incredible value for money.

Jeffree Star love him or loathe him, he is for certain, Jeffree Star is colourful, very colourful. Just a few weeks ago I went along to the Beauty Bay Carnival in central London where I got to meet and greet Jefree himself. 
The Jeffree Star Beauty Killer Palette does not disappoint. With bright pink being at the heart of the entire brand, this palette houses some of the most brightest and loudest shades I have come across in recent years and whilst I am not cool enough or brave enough to wear them, I can admire them. Super pigmented and simply amazing, this is such a cool palette.


Makeup Geek Manny MUA Palette is again one I got from the Beauty Bay Carnival and it is a thing of beauty. With 9 eyeshadows housed on one mirrored palette, the collaboration with Makeup Geek makes it amazing.
On the palette there are peachy nudes, a foiled copper with dusty mocha undertones and a dark coffee with a forest green shimmer to name a few. It is super pigmented, travel friendly and has been designed to suit all skin tones. Beautifully packaged and priced at £56 it is one to look out for and you can find it here.

Makeup Geek Z-Palette is a super sleek magnetic mini palette that stores three of your favourite Makeup Geek shades.

Developed to store three of your best-loved hues, the Mini Palette is an ideal handbag must-have. It comes complete with a sturdy magnetic base to keep your shadows safe from harm. Priced at just £5.50 from BeautyBay right here.

Makeup Obsession is my latest obsession. I am hooked. Makeup Obsession is all about creating your own look and to do that, you create your own palette using shades from a plethora of those currently available to you. You choose your palette, agonise over the shades you want, need and well want and then build your own perfect palette. 
The eyeshadows cost just £2 each and are so pigmented it is a challenge not to grab them all! Whether you like nudes and neutrals or something with a lot more colour, the shades are there for you to find and you can read more about my own customised palette right here.

Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours The Brave Palette is one I havent yet featured on the blog, possibly because I was too eager to open it and use it when it arrived. Most of you will know that this one belongs to none other than Jane frm British Beauty Blogger and it is just superb. 
Featuring thirty shades which are a mixture of matte, glimmer and sheen you will find colours which are light, comfortable bt equally dark and daring, a mix of everything that for just £9.99 it is just incredible value for money and you can find it right here.



theBalm Nude 'Tude Eyeshadow Palette. I just love this palette. It is quirky, kooky and a lot of fun. It features shades such as Selfish, Sexy, Sleek, Sultry and snobby to name just a few and makes for an amazing nude palette which is perfect all year round.
Available on the Highstreet from places such as Topshop and Superdrug, it costs £29.99 and is worth every penny.

The Body Shop is a brand that I had never really associated makeup with until recently when the Down To Earth palette came into my life.
I reviewed it in full (here) and just adore the colours on the palette and love more that I can take the palette to bits and reconstruct my own should the need arise. At just £15 it is money well spent.


Urban Decay XX Vice LTD Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette includes twenty eye shadows that celebrate the brand’s 20-year history. From vintage shades that go WAY back (like Gash, Acid Rain and UV-B) to must-haves from the current collection, it’s all here
This is a palette which features so many amazing shades and I use so many more than I expected, it has something for everyone from the nudes and neutrals to the blues, greens and even black. At £43 here it is a palette that is worth its money and is one which might even surprise you.

Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette is another one of those products you just need and it is just delightful. I reviewed this some time ago but have since repurchased it because at £18 it is incredible value.
inside the palette there are 10 absolutely stunning eyeshadow shades which have Matte, Satin, Metallic, Duochrome, Pearl and Matte with Glitter finishes and it is just so divine and so pigmented.
