First of all, I want to share the news that I am now the proud owner of lovelykacie.com and I’m super psyched. My brother is working on a logo for me right now and my mom is going to help me design my new website, so I will update y’all whenever it’s officially up and running. Until that wonderful day comes, I’ll still be updating this blog somewhat regularly and reposting them on the new site – this way both have the same content and I don’t have to completely restart posts on the new site.
Now that I’ve shared my exciting news, here are my top 5 (in no particular order) eye shadow palletes that I probably couldn’t live without.
This pallete has so much pigment and is shimmery (I am a huge fan of all things glitter…) and sparkly and I’m just in love with it. It also has great colors for complementing blue or green eyes. My most used colors on it are Rose Gold and Amber because it makes my eyes pop.
I love the matte colors on this pallete. Yes, I love sparkle, but sometimes a girl needs something to tone down all the glitter in her life… or just a good transition color. The pigments aren’t too bright, but I’ve found that using primer before applying helps with the application and color. Plus, it’s super affordable and has a good mix of matte and glitter.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Eye Shadow Palette – N/A
I absolutely love everything about this pallete: the colors, the texture, the application, the pigment, and especially the ultra glittery color (Pink Champagne). It’s a holiday pallete and my mom got it for me for Christmas, so sadly it’s no longer available otherwise it would be a definite repurchase for me.
Ulta Smolder Makeup Palette – N/A
So I got a makeup look book of sorts from Ulta one day and now I can’t find the price or a link to it anywhere… So either it was limited edition, a free gift, or just fell out of the sky in front of me just shouting at me to get it… But I am in love with glitter colors on here. Diamond Sparkle is a great silver glitter and applies well with a lot of glitter, however, I highly recommend using a glitter primer before using any glitter shadow.
I absolutely love this pallete. I have two of them, one came to me as a gift and the other came recently as a free extra for buying my prom dress at a boutique in my area. The newer one seems to have an updated casing and colors. I love the newer colors since they seem brighter and some have a prettier tint to it (ex. Busted has a lilac tone to it which makes it much lighter). I always love how pigmented and how easily the shadows from Urban Decay apply to my lid. This palette is possibly the most expensive but the quality is worth the splurge.
These are my top 5 out of a drawer full of palletes in my vanity. Each one has at least one color that I’m in love with and would use everyday if possible, but i would prefer to not look like a clown… Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments what you think or comment any ideas you have for a post tomorrow. Positive feedback is always welcome! I’ll be sure to keep y’all updated on my new site and I’ll post again soon!
