Eyeshadow Palette Collection


Now I only have a 'few' eyeshadow palettes compared to some of my fellow beauty bloggers, however its still way more eyeshadow than any sane person should have, want or need! I mean, how many eyeshadows can you wear at once right?

First up, my custom MAC Pro Palette:

I originally had 6 eyeshadow singles from MAC, which I purchased when I was putting my freelance kit together, and then once I found out about how much insanely cheaper MAC was in the US I did a massive haul - when the Aussie dollar was almost dollar for dollar - (view that here) and grabbed an extra 9 eyeshadow pans, plus the palette and insert!

Top Row: Phloof!, Mylar, Shroom, Bamboo, Wedge
Middle Row: Jest, All That Glitters, Satin Taupe, Woodwinked, Espresso
Bottom Row: Mythology, Coppering, Silver Ring, Satellite Dream, Contrast

Favourites: Mythology, Satin Taupe, Bamboo

I'll keep on with the MAC theme: MAC Fabulousness Collection (2012 Holiday Release) - Warm Eyes Palette:

My parents went to the US at the end of 2012, and boy did I put my shopping list in! And on it was this too cute mini palette/compact. It has satin-tufted top with a cute black patent bow accent.
Colours included are: Glamour Light, Sketch, Honesty, Cognac, Retrospeck 

Favourites: Cognac and Sketch!

Next up, Urban Decay! I picked up the Limited Edition Vice 3 palette in my first Sephora Haul (read that here!) last year.

The colours in the Vice 3 palette are so creamy and pigmented! You only need the smallest amount of product to get a great colour payoff. I do find these tend to have a bit of fallout when using, so I do my eyes first, and then do my base after and clean up any messy-ness! All of the colours in this palette are Limited Edition and palette exclusive!! It also comes with a handy double ended brush!!

First Row: Truth, Dragon, Vanity, Alien, Last Sin
Second Row: Undone, Freeze, Lucky, Alchemy, Angel
Third Row: Downfall, Heroine, Reign, Bondage, Defy
Fourth Row: DTF, Brokedown, Bobby Dazzle, Sonic, Revolver 

Favourites: Last Sin, Bondage

I snapped up the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette on the launch day here in Australia this year. It is the Naked palette (out of the 3) that appealed to me the most, however I don't use it that much :( The colours are absolutely beautiful, blend like a dream, however I think I would get more use out of the naked 2 palette. The naked 3 palette also includes a handy double ended brush too!

The 12 colours included are:
Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside and Blackheart

Favourites: Trick, Darkside

Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Palette. Formulated with cocoa powder. One whiff and you're sold. As the name kinda states; it smells like chocolate. The colours in this palette are amazing! This would have to be my favourite out of all of my palettes and my most used one!! I really want to pick up the new Semi Sweet palette too!!

Top Row: Gilded Ganache, White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Black Forrest Truffle, Triple Fudge
Middle Row: Salted Caramel, Marzipan, Semi-Sweet, Strawberry Bob-Bon, Candied Violet, Amaretto
Bottom Row: Hazelnut, Creme Brûlée, Haute Chocolate, Cherry Cordial, Champagne Truffle

Favourites: Salted Caramel & Marzipan!!

NARS Debbie Harry Eye & Cheek Palette from the 2012 Andy Warhol Collection. I must be honest and admit, I think I have used this maybe once? In the pan everything is very glittery, however it doesn't swatch the same. I bought this mainly, because it looked pretty.. ha

Colours included are:
Cheeks: Shimmering Pink Champagne and Brilliant Cream
Eyes: Twinkling Purple, Brilliant Turquoise, White Shimmer and Starry Black

Favourites: none :(

Napoleon Perdis Prismatic Eye Quad #12 was gifted to me by my mother, I have used it several times but literally haven't reached for it in at least 2 years. It contains 4 coolish based shades shimmery shades - an icy white, a blue based pale pink, a light greyish brown, and a dark brown (which looks grey in the pan).

Favourites: eh don't use it enough to have one...

Custom Z Palette - I picked up this Z palette from the Brisbane "Pro Make-Up and Beauty Show" earlier this year! They had heaps of show specials and this medium sized palette cost me around $15 dollars (I think!!) They also had a massive Inglot stall so I decided to try out Inglot for the very first time and picked up some shadows to put in my Z palette!!

Inglot Individual Eyeshadows - #25 (shine finish), #606 (pearl finish), #157 (shine finish), #607 (pearl finish) and #327 (matte finish). I haven't even used these shadows yet.. I've only swatched them once!! I probably should at least use them once.. Maybe on my next night out...

Also in my Z Palette is a depotted Napoleon Perdis colour disc in All That Shiraz! also another I haven't actually used!! I do love this colour of this though!!

Favourites: I haven't used these yet.. wahhh

Let me know if you would like to see swatches of any of these beautiful palettes!
