I don’t tend to buy too many palettes because I am going to have to absolutely love it for me to actually get my use out of it.

Most of the time I can’t justify purchasing a palette if I only like a couple of the colours in it, and understandably so, but it can be hard not to get sucked into the hype. In this post I am sharing with you three palettes that I would recommend spending your money on because I truly think they are worth it. These are eyeshadow palettes I love and use on a weekly if not daily basis. Not only that but I stick with these palettes and continue to come back to them time and time again.

Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
It isn’t often that you come across a palette like this in the drugstore so to be honest I was not expecting much from it. Safe to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I got my hands on this lovely set of eyeshadows and found them to be easily blendable, highly pigmented and a great shade range. Especially for the price this is a great option if you aren’t look to spend much but want to add some variety into your eyeshadow collection. I love how the colours in this palette are extremely versatile, suiting both day and night. Pricing varies because it retails for $25.95 but Chemist Warehouse sometimes have half price sales where this product comes down to $12.97.

Urban Decay Naked Palette
What an cult classic this one is, you can’t beat the original naked palette. While three further versions of this palette have been released the original has remained my favourite of the bunch. The warm toned eyeshadows suit my skintone best and are all incredibly beautiful. The eyeshadows are rich and creamy making them easily blendable. This is an expensive palette AT $78 but the pigmentation is amazing and it creates beautiful eye looks so I think it is well worth the price.

MAC Palette
I love the freedom of being able to choose all of your favourite MAC shadows and put them in an easy access palette and in the order that you want. This flexibility is what attracts me to the MAC palette system and I knew I had to get one of my own. Let me tell you – I have not been disappointed! I find myself often switching out colours and putting in new ones depending on the season or new purchases. You can read this post for a closer look into this palette.
The price of this palette varies but this one here has cost me about $435 – pretty crazy right. They are an investment and if you love MAC or are simply looking for good quality eyeshadows then definitely take a look into this.

These three palettes stand out from the rest in my collection and I would highly recommend them if you are on the hunt for some new eyeshadows. With so many options on the market it can be hard to figure out what is worth spending your money on so I hope that this post helped, even if just to assure you these palettes are great.

Thanks for reading!
