If you have headed over here from my Instagram then you would have seen my little hint of one of my favourite palettes at the moment… but did you guess who made it and what the palette was?
I have a top three of my current favourites and to be frank, I really can’t decide between the three! Instead, I will leave the final review down to yourselves, I do use these palettes on a regular basis and my main looks are smokey eyes, neutral browns and pinks and obviously glitter. If you want to see any of these looks or a tutorial of how I wear the palette/s please leave me a comment on this post or my Facebook page and I will try to create something for you guys.
Urban Decay – NAKED3 – RRP £39.50
12 different shades, all neutral and smokey, which is right up my street. Each matte shade is accompanied by a glitter counterpart, which makes it easy for make up beginners as well as the more experienced. My go to base colours are beige and brown so this suits me perfectly and the glitter shades are super pigmented but not OTT so brilliant for a day wear and moving into a casual evening. This is the most expensive of all three, but considering the durability and the length of wear from each application I don’t think you can go wrong. I had wanted one for ages before this one was generously purchased for me.
w7 Make up – SMOKIN’ – RRP £9.95
w7 are definitely an underdog when it comes to the make up industry. However, an underdog not to be messed with! I have numerous palettes from w7 and all of them have the same consistency as the high-end brands and the same thick colourful pigment. This is my go to for a more dramatic eyeshadow, and is therefore not used as much as the other two palettes, the gun-metal grey is my favourite for a smokey eye and I often add excess glitter (courtesy of NYX glitter pots) to dramatise the look even more. Can you say no to an eyeshadow palette under £10 that dupes the big brands? Definitely not.
Morphe – Jaclyn Hill Palette – RRP £37.00
KWEEN. Morphe are bossin’ the make up industry and I am feelin’ it! Collabs with artists or brand influencers usually leaves me on the fence as sometimes they can be a bit outrageous and contain a lot of colours I have never been brave enough to venture into (yellow, pink I’m talking to you…) but this palette is beautiful. Jaclyn Hill has worked her magic on the colour choices and Morphe have upped the game. When this palette was released it was constantly sold out. The eyeshadows are pretty big and the palette it’s nearly 3x the height of an Urban Decay palette. There is an excessive amount of choice, and again, there is mattes and glitter shade. All of the bases you could possibly need and all of the glitters to match! I have even delved into the world of greens and blues, giving myself mermaid make up, and my, I love this palette and the sassy confidence it gives you! At £37.00 it isn’t too pricey and for the size, quality and collab alone, I’d happily pay £10 more.
