If you're a fan of warm eyeshadows (aka, everyone) Urban Decay's newest Naked offering will give you all the feels. With a range of mattes, satins and metallic shadows, there's enough variety to create a dreamy eye look. The four foil shades in the palette can be worn wet or dry, meaning you can dial up the intensity of you a blinding sheen.
This is the eyeshadow palette that caused mass controversy on the internet. Countless beauty gurus claimed that the pure pressed pigments were too difficult to work with, however, when used with a light hand the shadows can be built up to create a dramatic eye look. Plus, the colors look uh-mazing on deeper skin tones.
All of the shades are creamy and easy to blend; the foils and shimmer shadows are packed with pigment, which means they apply like a dream. The mattes are a little less pigmented, but for the price, it's still insanely good value. Go pick it up now, trust me, you won't regret it.
Prepare to be shaken by the insane amount of sparkle packed into each of these glittery shadows. Each of the six shades has a duo-chrome effect and can be layered up to create unique rainbow looks. The palette also contains a matte white and matte black base shadow, that works a treat for emphasizing all that shimmer.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Barry M, they're way, way more than just cute nail polishes and glitter-packed dazzle dusts (you know, the ones you used to slather over your eyelids in year 8). Now the budget makeup brand have branched out to create some killer formulas. This eyeshadow palette is the perfect example, with eight duo-chrome shimmer shades it's awesome value for money.
Speaking of drugstore makeup brands that are killing it, Rimmel has also upped their game in the eyeshadow dept. Their new range of Magnif'eyes palette contains super-pigmented shadows that look incredible on all skin tones. They're blendable and easy to work with, for £8.99 it's well worth picking up one of these palettes.
Yes the colours are a little bold for day-to-day, but this palette is 100% worth having in your collection for nights out. The buttery, pigmented shadows work beautifully on fair-to-deep skin tones, every shade from the lightest silver to the hot pink will flatter.
Warm eyeshadow palettes are having a moment, and this one is one of the best out there - hands down. From milky beiges to cherry shimmers it covers ALL eyeshadow bases. Oh, and despite having a bunch of lighter shades, the Violet Voss Palette deserves a major shout out as every single shadow blends beautifully on deeper skin tones - without looking choppy or chalky.
In the pan, these shadows look fairly neutral, but on the skin, they come off more cool-toned, so it's the perfect palette if you need a little respite from ALL the warm eye looks. The shadows 'sultry' and 'seductive' are both beaut browns that work a treat for every day, whilst the shade 'sexy' looks incredible blended along the lash line.
Marc Jacobs eyeshadows are famous for their staying power, and this blue-toned palette lives up to the hype. With a range of matte and shimmers it's easy to build up a dramatic cobalt eye look. Yes, it's expensive, but the sleek packaging and pigmented formulas are A*** quality.
Too Faced cause mass hysteria when they first launched this peach-toned eyeshadow palette. It sold out in a matter of minutes and beauty editors and bloggers across the globe sang its praise. There are both warm and neutral shades in a range of peaches, browns, creams, and plums - plus a bonus emerald green hue. Pretty. To say this palette is 'covetable' would be an understatement.
Cult beauty brand, Zoeva, have been making quite the splash in the beauty industry with their awesome makeup formulas. The Cocoa Blend eyeshadow palette is exactly as the name would suggest, a mixture of rich, warm-tone hues, including chocolate browns and toffee golds.
