Natasha Denona Sunset

View Swatches

Natasha Denona Sunset Palette ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) was limited edition but brought back and made permanent. It’s my favorite palette from the brand to-date as it is cohesive with a good mix of mattes and shimmers with great pigmentation, wear, and blendability!

Anastasia Modern Renaissance

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette ($42.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes 14 eyeshadows that come in a mix of warmer neutrals and pops of pink/red.  The one that started the avalanche that has become warm, red, rosy, and orange-toned palettes in the last year but still just as good today as it was when it launched!

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Palette ($19.00 for 1.58 oz.) contains 28, metallic eyeshadows.  The majority of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, applied beautifully on bare skin, blended out easily, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer). As they are all shimmery, it may not work as well as an all-in-one-look palette, though. If you like your high-shimmer, metallic eyeshadows, it’s well worth checking out!

Viseart Cashmere

Viseart Cashmere Theory Palette ($45.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a subdued set of neutral tones with three matte and three metallic eyeshadows. The Theory palettes are more cohesive as all-in-one palettes as the finishes and tone vary more than the larger palettes (which were designed to be used with other palettes). It’s become one of my must-haves whenever I travel, as it’s just so easy to use–wearable but also a cinch to apply.

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226)

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals. All four shades wore well for just over nine hours and after, there was very, very slight creasing (no primer). The texture is soft, smooth, and they eyeshadows are incredibly blendable.  It’s another easy, wearable set of neutrals that isn’t too warm-toned or too cool-toned.

Kat Von D Shade + Light

View Swatches

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette ($46.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows that are categorized into three “quads,” divided between neutral, cool, and warm (supposedly, at least). For the majority of the palette, the eyeshadow formula is consistent: very soft, finely-milled to the point where the shades feel smooth and silky, but they can be powdery at times, so this is a palette best for someone who typically uses a primer!

LORAC Unzipped

LORAC Unzipped Palette ($40.00 for 0.58 oz.) is a good palette with ten shades and no major issues. Most of the eyeshadows had good color payoff, soft, blendable textures, and the formula wears quite consistency–almost every shade lasted for eight hours on me (no primer). If you dig LORAC’s shimmery formula, the Unzipped series of palettes is quite good in general!

MAC Warm Neutral

MAC Warm/Neutral 15 x Palette ($65.00 for 0.68 oz.) contains fifteen, warm-toned eyeshadows. It has four permanent shades and four repromoted shades (ones that have been released previously as limited edition shades). If you’re a fan of MAC’s eyeshadow formula, I suspect this will be right up your alley, assuming you’re in the market for more neutrals!

Sleek MakeUP Vintage Romance

Read Review
View Swatches

Sleek Vintage Romance Palette ($9.99 for 0.36 oz.) is one of the few cooler-toned palettes (though it has warm shades in it) that has good pigmentation and blends well. I find Sleek’s shimmery shades to be extremely rich, dense, and pigmented, and their satins and mattes tend to be a bit weaker (some are good, some aren’t). Sunset is fantastic for brighter warm-tones.

Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip

View Swatches

Tom Ford Nude Dip Eyeshadow Quad ($82.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains four shades of warm-leaning neutrals that go from golden champagne to dark brown. The eyeshadows go on so easily and nearly blend themselves; they work and transition into each other in a way that’s effortless.  I think this might be one of my most worn eyeshadow palettes as I’ve reached for it many times for date nights and the like.

Viseart Paris Nude (06)

Read Review
View Swatches

Viseart Paris Nudes Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is a set of 12 shades, and if you’ve ever longed for a palette of shimmery, mid-tones, this might be the one for you.  The texture is soft and blendable with some shades feeling a little dry, dusty, and/or powdery, but these things didn’t translate into application, as they still adhered well to bare skin (no primer) and wore for eight hours or longer.  This is another go-to for traveling, especially if I want some variety but want to keep my color schemes more neutral and wearable.

Urban Decay Naked

View Swatches

Urban Decay Naked Palette ($54.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a classic palette for me; it’s one I can return to and use with ease. The eyeshadows are all warm in tone with a mix of mattes and shimmers (though it is more shimmery overall) and complement each other.

Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Ulta

Viseart Bridal Satin (03)

Read Review
View Swatches

Viseart Bridal Satin Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) contains 12 shimmery shades ranging from buttery yellow to violet to satiny black. The formula on these is incredibly buttery, dense, and richly pigmented, which made them easy to apply to bare lids and get long, extended wear (nine to ten hours). I like how this is a bolder palette but is still wearable as there are several neutrals in it, too.
