I am a huge eyeshadow fan.. I accentuate my eyes more then any other facial feature. I have an ever-growing palette collection so I thought I’d feature some of my most used and most favorite ones. You’ll be able to see by the photos that some are used quite heavily. I didn’t bother cleaning up around the edges because I prefer real beauty. Real beauty INCLUDES showing products lived in (i.e. used). Enjoy!!

First, I’d like to talk about BH Cosmetic’s Solar Flare palette. This is a GORGEOUS palette and retails for $15.99. You can pick it up for cheaper if you follow their sales cycles. I think when I purchased mine it was 13.99 and came with a free brush set. Score!! This palette has amazingly rich colors (my favorites being galactic and heat and gamma ray). Fallout is minimal but definitely use a primer before applying these shadows. My photos don’t do this palette justice, but trust me, these colors POP!

Secondly, Be by BubzBeauty which retails for $14.50 is a much used palette. It’s got great neutral colors that are appropriate for the work environment with some fun little colors for evening. Blendable, buildable, and as you can tell from the photo, definitely heavily used!

Third, Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette which retails for $36 is AMAZEBALLS. If you aren’t familiar with too faced products, their palettes smell like candy! It’s exhilarating. I love this palette because its compact and adorable. Plus, it comes with a great little looks card giving you examples of different looks you can create with their shadows. Now, this was definitely a little out of my comfort zone as I don’t tend to wear very bright colors like what’s featured in this palette. However, I scored it for super cheap on one of their sales and ended up LOVING it!!

Last but not least, PUR Love Your Selfie 2 Palette which retails for $42 is one of my newest additions to my family. Now, you might be looking at the price wondering “how is this a budget palette?”. Well, normally, it isn’t. However, I was able to snag it on clearance at a local Kohl’s department store for the ridiculous price of $8.40!! This palette is amazing not only because of the shadows it contains, but also because it comes with a mascara, lip crayon AND lip-gloss which makes it an amazing value. I especially like the highlight color (overexposed) and the lip crayon is quite pretty. (Sorry..my flash decided to go off in this photo so doesn’t show the colors quite well!!)

There you have it!! I’ll eventually go into more in depth review on each palette individually but I do hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know which are some of your favorite palettes and any comments you might have for me. Stay beautiful lovelies!

*note.. I realize I have a CARGO palette featured in the first photo. This was the ALOHA palette which was beautiful but currently no longer available. I didn’t feel right featuring it as I wouldn’t be able to provide a link to purchase it. Apologies!!*
