Eyeshadow palettes always excite. Even a not-so-great palette is exciting to test and try. Though there are plenty of makeup must-haves and everyday essentials...eyeshadow is the fun stuff. It is like the sprinkles on top of a perfectly iced birthday cake! Over the years, I have tried many eyeshadow palettes. Some have been incredible and others totally fell flat. Thankfully, there have been more hits than misses. Especially when it comes to those warm, fall inspired colours. Now that the season is fully underway, it is time to shine a light on a few of my favourite fall palettes.
Two of my favourite fall eyeshadow palettes come from the drugstore. They are affordable, nicely pigmented, and downright fabulous. The first is the Cover Girl TruNaked Goldens palette. It has a wonderful selection of shades, ranging from light to dark. There is a champagne shade, a warm gold, rich greens, and a chocolate brown. Most of these colours work well for one-shadow looks but can also be combined to create something totally perfect for fall. The second eyeshadow palette is the Total Temptations Shadow + Highlight Palette from Maybelline. (Take a peek at my original review of that palette here.) Why is this set a favourite? There is so much variety! It includes matte shades, shimmer, and glitter. One side of the palette is warm and wearable for everyday. The other side has a dusty rose shade and a matte black to create more glamorous looks. The two highlights in the center of the palette are an added bonus that adds a lot of versatility to the palette.
The next two favourite fall eyeshadow palettes are high end items. They feature easy-to-wear shades with lots of warmth and shimmer. First is the Master Palette by Mario from Anastasia Beverly Hills. This isn't just a fall favourite. It is my all-time favourite eyeshadow palette. Ever. I've even hit pan on a few shades (which is extremely rare due to the fact that I have a ton of eyeshadow palettes in my makeup collection). Each and every one of the colours is fabulous for fall. They are warm and effortlessly easy to wear. They also blend like a dream and last all day. Another high end fall favourite is the Desert Dust Palette from Huda Beauty. There are matte, shimmer, and glitter shades to choose from. I especially love the shimmer formula in this palette and often find myself reaching for those gorgeous burgundy shades, like Royal and Turkish Delight.
When it comes to fall eyeshadow palettes....these are some of my personal favourites. I love that both drugstore and high end brands have plenty to choose from. Looking for even more favourites?
