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:
- Too Faced Chocolate Gold
- Juvia’s Place Saharan 2
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam
- Urban Decay Born to Run
- Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered
- Urban Decay Naked 1
- Makeup Revolution Re-loaded Iconic Division
- BH Cosmetics Weekend Festival
- Urban Decay Naked Heat
- 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 (www.beyondcosmetics.co.za).
I’d love to hear about your favourite eyeshadow palettes so please share them with me in the comments!
