Back in the days I was buying eye shadow palettes like there is no tomorrow but in the last several years I have stopped, and now I prefer quads, or even duos. I rarely use more than two shades on my eye lids anyway. But if you are, like my friend, palette-crazy, I have selected some brand new releases for SS17.
Enjoy, and happy shopping!

Kat Von D Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette, $38 from Sephora
Bright eye shadows are a real trend this summer, I have already featured L’Oreal and Viseart but there are many, many more. I’ve decided to mention 3 palettes which I personally like the most. And I like the look of them. I have not tried these particular palettes but I do have other palettes from these three brands, and love them. So here is hoping these are great, too.
I am including this because I am obsessed with Norvina palette which I have. While I did not know who Alyssa Edwards was (RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant) I love the combination of bold and neutral shades.
- 10 x Eyeshadows in Headliner (matte bright white), Inspire (metallic champagne gold), Unicorn Tribe (matte cool plum pink), Brick Road (matte primary yellow), Back Rolls (matte warm chocolate brown), The Supreme (matte deep peach), H.O.E. (matte neutral taupey brown), D.D.G. (rich metallic violet with silver flecks), Beyond (warm metallic fuchsia), Beast (matte blackest black)
- 4 x Pressed Pigments in Texas Made (matte fuchsia hot pink pressed pigment), Dream It (matte royal blue pressed pigment), B.B.D.C. (deep cool aubergine pressed pigment), Believe (violet purple pressed pigment).
