My Top 10 Eyeshadow Palettes


I think all beauty junkies have a weakness for different things, for some it might be highlighters, lipsticks, mascaras, etc.  For me it is most definitely eyeshadow palettes.  I LOVE to collect both high end and drugstore palettes – I don’t discriminate except in that I don’t purchase from brands that are not cruelty free of course. There are unfortunately not many options for drugstore palettes once you’ve excluded all the brands that are not cruelty free 🙁

Over the last few years I have amassed a pretty large collection of eyeshadow palettes and often wonder which I would pick if I could only keep a few of them. After watching some YouTuber declutters, I find it fascinating how different people have such different favourites. Makeup is such a personal thing so it’s understandable that we all have our own preferences.

Here is the list of my top 10 favourite eyeshadow palettes:

  1. Too Faced Chocolate Gold
  2. Juvia’s Place Saharan 2
  3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam
  4. Urban Decay Born to Run
  5. Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered
  6. Urban Decay Naked 1
  7. Makeup Revolution Re-loaded Iconic Division
  8. BH Cosmetics Weekend Festival
  9. Urban Decay Naked Heat
  10. NYX Avant Pop Art Throb

I know a lot of these are not easily available in South Africa but there are a few websites where you can certainly get your hands on some of these brands.  Beyond Cosmetics is one I’ve personally used and was very happy with the service I received (

I’d love to hear about your favourite eyeshadow palettes so please share them with me in the comments!
