Eyeshadow Palette Wishlist

I don’t know about you guys but I swear that every time I’m trying to save for a something – such as my holiday which is now 4 weeks away – there’s concert tickets going onsale, Missguided and Boohoo have a sale, you get discount codes sent to you and the worst one of them all, your favorite makeup brand releases a new product. How is anyone supposed to save any money at all with all of this temptation around 😖.

In light of this I thought I’d put together a little wishlist of the eyeshadow palettes that I seriously am drooling over😍. I thought that this might satisfy my needs at this moment in time and possibly prevent me from making any irresponsible purchases😂😂😂.

Inglot Cosmetics Signature Collection Eyeshadow Palettes – If you are an Inglot fan you’ll already know how amazing their eyeshadows are. They’re super pigmented and so easy to blend what’s not to love about them? Not to mention that you can literally get any colour you want with the range that they have. They recently released their new Signature Collection and OH MY DAYS are they fab. The Berry and Candy palettes are my favorite. I love the cranberry tones in the Berry and pinky colours in the Candy palette. I think both palettes are perfect to create a day or night look, I really cannot wait to pick them up and give them a try😍. They retail @ €32 each and are available online here.

Makeup Revolution Ultra 32 Eyeshadow Palette Flawless 3 Resurrection – As you already know from my previous posts, I am a massive fan of the brand Makeup Revolution. I have so many of their eyeshadow (and blush) palettes already that I use all the time, they’re just so affordable and so pigmented it’s hard not to have so many😅. This palette caught my eye on my Insta feed and it’s definitely next on my list to try. The palette is all matte with warm tones that are just so stunning, the orangey tones I love in particular🤗. This palette retails at €11.50 and you can get this palette in Superdrug or online here👈.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette – Urban Decay have completely outdone themselves with this palette, I still can’t get over how pretty it is😭😭 I already have the Naked, Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes, along with the Smoked, Gwen Steffani and the Vice palettes which are all just amazing.  Again I absolutely love the look of the warm burnty shades in this palette and can only imagine how gorgeous they are when swatched😮 This palette isn’t available in Ireland just yet but is due to be released in Ireland in the end of July, and when that day comes I plan to be top of the queue😏 The other Naked palettes were around the €50 mark so I’m guessing this one will be around the same.

Too Faced Cosmetics White Chocolate Palette – So Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Too Faced Cosmetics, Jerrod Blandino, dropped an absolute Chocolatey BOMB on Instagram today. He posted a sneaky peak of the new limited edition White Chocolate Palette and .. I am shook hunny 😳😳😳. I can’t even deal with the colours in it, there are some gorgeous shimmery shades along with some pinky peachy shades.. it all just looks amazing😍. I already have their Chocolate and Semi Sweet Chocolate palette, which I adore, they are so buttery AND they even smell like chocolate! What more could you want🤣🤣. Jerrod hashtagged black Friday and cyber Monday in his post so the guess is that this beauty will be released at the end of November/Christmas Time.

Makeup Must Haves

Makeup Revolution Ultra Shade & Light Palette

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the Makeup Revolution brand is incredible! I posted about their highlighters a few weeks ago – you can read it here – and raved about the brand. For this weeks Makeup Must Have Monday I decided to pick the Ultra Shade and Light Palette by Makeup Revolution. I know you are wondering, why did she pick this palette out of the 100 palettes she has. To be honest with you I don’t have an all time favourite eyeshadow palette because I just can’t pick one. I have so so many and I love each of them for different reasons so it is too hard to pick! (I am making them sound like people when I say it like this amn’t I? 🤣🤣).

But there are a few reasons why I picked this palette as a Makeup Must Have –

  1. It’s really affordable and doesn’t hurt your purse at only €11.00
  2. If you are new to make up and learning to do your eye makeup this palette is perfect because of the shade range and simplicity
  3. There are so many looks you can create with it
  4. It’s a dupe for the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette
  5. The eyeshadows are so easy to blend and they’re extremely pigmented

I picked it up in Superdrug last year and just loved it from the minute I used it. I would use this palette if I want to do a nice warm smokey eye or if I just want to go for a simple matte neutral eye look. As I said above the eyeshadows are really pigmented so you don’t need to apply loads of product to achieve the colour you want. They are also really easy to blend so you don’t have to blend until your wrist starts to hurt. The brush that comes with it took me by surprise, it’s double ended with a rounded flat brush on one end and a small blending brush on the other. You could easily do your eyes with just this little brush – I did and I was impressed because I normally use about 6 different brushes when I do my img_7595eyes 🤣🤣.

Here is a warm smokey eye look I did using this palette – the glitter on top is from Collection 2000 which I did feature on Makeup Must Have Monday before – see here.

So if you are looking for a simple eyeshadow palette or a matte eyeshadow palette to create a number of different looks and that won’t hurt your purse- this is the one for you🤗.

As always, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this weeks Makeup Must Have Monday, if you have any questions please feel free to comment below.
