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!
Featuring six matte and six mega metallic shades: Vintage (Matte Pale Neutral Pink), Velvet (Matte Pale Pink), Feathered (Matte Pale Sand), Fringe (Matte Light Taupe), Suede (Matte Mid-Tone Mauve Pink), Velour (Matte Mid-Tone Warm Tan), Bohemian (Metallic Light Pewter), Retro (Metallic Rose Gold), Sequin (Metallic Gold), Smolder (Metallic Smoky Gunmetal), Sizzle (Metallic Rosy Copper) and Flare (Metallic Cool Bronze)
Lorac California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette, $30 from Ulta.
Just like the Stila palette, this one features 12 shades, matte and shimmer, each is inspired by LA: Button, Starfish, Cozy, Bonfire, Overcast, Bonfire, Hot Toddy, Cable Knit, Seaside, Sand Castle, Boots, Kitty Cat and 65 Degrees
Kat Von D Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette, $38 from Sephora
The only makeup palette that can be compared to the Naked, in terms of the hype it comes with, is probably LORAC Pro palette. It was a very covetable item for so many beauty lovers, and I’ve heard quite a few stories of girls trying to hunt it down (yes, really), as if it was not a makeup product but life changing item!
So were was I? Oh, yes, LORAC are bringing out Pro Palette 2! In fact, you can already buy it from Ulta for $42. Lucky American girls.
What shades are a part of this new release?
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).
