Beauty ¦ The best of the palettes

So I think I may have a small addiction. Today I thought I would run through all of my favourite palettes with you. I feel like I have a fairly good mix of drugstore and high end palettes to talk to you about today so without further ado lets get on or else this post is going to end up about a million words long. 

Urban Decay Naked basics - This is the first even high end piece of makeup I owned and I still really love this palette. It is super great for travelling as it is so little and compact. I also really love the shade Faint for my brows and I pretty much used it consistently for about a year. These are some of the most lovely matte shadows that I have ever used, they blend like an absolute dream and are so lovely and creamy just like all other urban decay shadows. 

Urban Decay Naked 1 - Another incredible palette from Urban decay, I don't find myself reaching for this as often as I used to however it is something that I love having in my collection and a palette that I will always love using. Just like in the Basics palette the shadows are incredibly creamy and highly pigmented. 

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani - The final palette from Urban Decay is the stunning Gwen Stefani palette. I absolutely love the mix of shades in this palette. I find that the pops of colour in the palette work really well with the other shadows a although there are a couple of shades I will never use like the super yellow gold. 

Zoeva Cocoa blend palette - This is the best palette if you are a fan of warm toned shadows. The shades in this palette are really pigmented and the shadows are really great quality for the price. I absolutely love the mix of shades in this palette. If you want to know more I reviewed this //here// 

Collection Your style Your mood - The collection eyeshadows are super impressive for the price. I would say that they are almost as good as the Urban decay ones so considering the fact that this palette is somewhere round the £5 mark there is literally nothing that you can complain about. 

Makeup geek Custom palette - Do I even need to say anything about this one I talk about it enough anyway! These shadows are awesome and super high quality for the affordable price, 

Bobbi Brown Caviar lip and cheek palette - This palette contains 3 matte shadows, 2 sparkle eyeshadows and a lip gloss in Bright pink. The matte shadows are a really lovely smooth texture and blend well. I also really love to press the sparkle shadows over basically any look. I also quite like the gloss however I would say that it isn't my favourite gloss. 

Sleek Vintage romance palette - I love this palette for the autumn and winter. The sleek shadows are pretty fabulous for the price. These are so incredibly pigmented and I absolutely love the gold shades. 

Stila In the light - This is one of the most hyped palettes along with the Naked palettes and I can completely see why. I adore the shade Sunset which is a stunning coppery shade. The only thing that I don't like about this palette is the fact that the packaging is cardboard which is quite flimsy.

  15. The Vintage Romance Sleek Makeup was an absolute banger of a drugstore eyeshadow palette. I think it's my favourite of the Sleek eyeshadow palettes. Beautiful purples and easily blendable.
