About three months ago, I made a blog post about “My 5 Must-Have Eyeshadow Palettes (Cruelty Free)” and I’ve received a lot of requests to do a follow up about more eyeshadow palettes I recommend. I’ve waited to post this blog because Christmas time is when the limited edition ones come out! Here are a few more palettes I would highly recommend you add to your collection.
Tarte Treasure Box, $59.00 ($433.00 Value) (Limited Edition)
Tarte is always my go-to place for Holiday sets (mainly for the blushes), and this one is no different. This set has everything you need in one place—a 24-piece eyeshadow palette, warm and cool-toned blushes, two universal bronzers, and a pearlescent highlighter. In the storage compartment, you’ll find a full-size Sex Kitten Eyeliner, and travel-sizes of the Light, Camera, Lashes mascara and Tarteist Lip Paint. Available at Sephora.
Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette, $38.00
I know that there are controversies surrounding Morphe (possible private labeling, shedding brushes, Morphe codes, etc) but I had never tried anything Morphe until this palette. I held off getting this palette for about 6 months because I am not a huge fan of Jaclyn Hill. This is the only Morphe product I own, so I am solely judging the palette – and I think it is great! I love warm-toned shadows and this palette is full of them, along with pops of color and nice shimmers. The shadows are buttery, pigmented, and blend out very well. This is a great one to travel with as well! Available at Ulta.
Tarteist™ Pro Amazonian Clay Palette, $53.00
This palette has been a favorite of mine lately. It’s loaded with 16 long-wearing matte eyes shades that are infused with Amazonian clay (hence the name) for smooth blending—plus, four brand-new duo chrome shades that are to die for. The matte shadows are so buttery, pigmented, and universal. This one is for sure a must-have for me! Available at Sephora and Ulta.
Kat Von D’s Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette, $48.00
The Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette is specially designed for eye contouring- a technique once used only by beauty experts to define and enhance eyes. This palette features contouring shades, arranged into three color quads- neutral, cool, and warm- to flatter every skin tone. If you have other Kat Von D products, you know she always hits it on the nail with the pigment – this palette is no different. This is the perfect palette for “no makeup- makeup” days, and also for traveling!
This post was an update to my “My 5 Must-Have Eyeshadow Palettes (Cruelty Free)” blog post, and I’ll continue to update as I discover more awesome palettes. What are your must-have palettes?
