Whilst I do not class myself as a beauty blogger (or even any good at make up tbh), my eyeshadow palette collection is something that I am most proud of. I have purchased some of these palettes myself but I’ve also been lucky enough to receive some as presents at Christmas/birthdays. You will be able to see a theme – warm tones and hues as that is what I am drawn too and suits my complexion and eye colour. So lets get right into my palettes…
My palettes live in a drawer in my Alex 5 drawers (see makeup storage post) and I have an acrylic tray for them from amazon. It is meant to have dividers in for the palettes to stand up in but I had too many so I took them out and now its a good box for them to be held in!
I have some single eyeshadows from Kiko, MAC and my small Fleur de Force quad in the second acrylic divider which is handy for single eyeshadows.
Now I bought this in the summer as I thought I’d like it but I haven’t actually used it at all. I think it’s the wrong tones for me but I need to have a go at it. Bit of an unnecessary purchase but oh well.

I used to use this palette all the time when I first got it! It’s a typical makeup revolution palette with good pigmentation, easy to blend and great colour range! I need to use this more and the fact it comes with a mirror is even better!

I’ve barely touched these – and looking at them, I don’t know why! I need to stop buying more palettes and use these!

This. This. This. This palette is the most amazing thing in the world! The colours are to die for, so autumnal and they blend like a dream! This is a palette that loads of looks can be created from so is perfect for travelling! The big mirror is so handy and i think is an essential in eye palettes. Well done Soph, one of my new faves!
I bought this when Kat Von D first came to the UK with some money I got for my birthday and I have barely touched it (as you can see) and I’m debating what to do with it. I wish I bought the contour palette as opposed to the eye palette but I still like the shades.
I had been eyeing up this palette for ages and I decided to put it on my 21st birthday list not expecting to get it and my Auntie got it for me. I think this is now discontinued so I rarely use it as I don’t want it to run out! But the times that I have used it I was in love. The colours are gorgeous and they blend beautifully.
HOLY GRAIL. If you don’t have this palette in your collection, buy it NOW! I cannot live without this palette – I wear it every time I go for an eyeshadow look and even when I say I’ll do a different look, I always go back to this. The pigmentation, blending, shade range, price and size of the palette is just heavenly. I love it. The only downside is that there isn’t a mirror but this is minor compared to everything else.
I spontaneously bought this (as always) when I was in Poland last year as it worked our cheaper than if I bought it here and I love it. The smell is just perfect, colours are beautiful but since I’ve got the Zoeva palette, I don’t use this one as much but it is still one of my top 3.

This was again an unnecessary purchase (common theme huh?) but it’s the best unnecessary purchase ever. I LOVE the shades, the packaging, the mirror and it’s great. I love using this palette just to deepen the crease when I’m wearing liner and no eyeshadow and I also use the brown shades for my brows. Heaven.
I have been eyeing this palette up for a while and for my birthday last year, I got a MAC voucher from my brother-in-law and I knew straight away that I was buying this. In all honesty, I’m kind of disappointed in the quality of these shadows for saying there are MAC as the pigmentation isn’t the best but the colours are still beautiful and with a bit of hard work, you can get a decent eye look.
I nearly cried when I opened my present from my best friend last year and I opened this. I was DYING to try a Morphe palette and they do not disappoint! I love the shade range, the pigmentation, the number of shadows you get in one palette and the price make it key in my collection. I can’t wait to buy more and I am desperate for the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette… Santa, please?!
So that’s my collection and I have some more makeup revolution palettes that I got in the advent calendars and bought myself.
Thanks for reading! See you soon
