In the makeup world, there are so many different products to choose from. Some of them are affordable, some not so purse-friendly. My favorite items to chuck out the cash for are foundations and palettes. I believe that a proper base is the most important part of the makeup routine, and palettes are just so pleasing to have on hand! They come in all sorts of ranges, from eyes, to lips, to cheeks, or the whole face! This post is chock full of gorgeous shadows and shades, so let's just hop in!
The Blogger Favorite: Stila In the Light Eyeshadow Palette. One of my favorites, this is a well hyped-up palette and for good reason! The shadows are buttery soft and blend like a dream! The shade range is gorgeous and the ratio of mattes and shimmers is just right.
The Affordable Option: Sephora Color Play 5 in 1 Eye and Cheek Palette. The shadows from this palette are pretty much a cheaper dupe for the Stila palette mentioned above. The shimmery champagne color in the bottom of the palette is the exact same shade and formulation as Stila's Kitten shadow, which is one of my favorites! The palette has a great mixture of shimmery golds and bronzes. If you're on a tighter budget, this is the one for you priced only at $25, it comes with 4 other palettes in a lovely set from Sephora!
The Summery Mix: Benefit Go Tropi Coral Palette. For fans of Benefit's Coralista blush and lip gloss, this palette is perfect. It includes some of the brand's best selling options: Cha Cha Tint, High Beam, and Coralista mini blush and lip gloss. It's great for those who just want to test out some of Benefit's products, as they are the perfect size for travel and testing.
The Smoky Garb: Benefit World Famous Neutrals Palette. Another winning Benefit palette (with a full review here!), this one comes with lovely purple toned hues and two creaseless cream shadows. The shades are absolutely stunning and, paired with the cream shadows as a base, last all day long!
The All Time Favorite: Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette. I can't rave enough about this palette. I've talked about it so much, yet I just keep complimenting the shades and the texture of the amazing shadows! It's perfect for neutral loving gals and for the smoky eye lovers. This is a limited edition palette, so I highly recommend that anyone who has not tried this out, get their hands on it immediately!
