Neutral Palette Decisions!

Neutral Palette Decisions

Welcome back, folks! So at the moment I’m trying to decide if I want to get a new neutral shadow palette and also wanted to share my thoughts on which ones I’ve been eyeing! I’m definitely going back and forth about getting one- I usually talk myself out of it because a lot of the shadows in them are similar to shades I own, and I guess I’m trying to use what I have and blah blah blah.

But let’s be real-I’m kinda bored and want to play around a bit! And with palettes, having a variety right in the palm of your hand is so, uh, handy, and I find that they’re fun to look at and pick colors from when I don’t feel like going through all the singles. Even if I don’t end up getting a new one, my brain was on palette overload and I needed to sort it out and hear what you think! Anyway, here are some I’m considering:

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Urban Decay Naked Palette, $54.00. I know this one’s been on the market forever and many of you probably already own it or one of its variants, but was this not the palette that launched a thousand dupes?! And I’m sure for great reason! I love UD shadows and I’m pretty sure I’d get great use out of it….

Morphe 35OS Color Shimmer Nature Glow Palette
Morphe 35OS Color Shimmer Nature Glow Palette

Morphe 35OS Nature Glow Palette, $22.99. These are at a really good price point and I always hear about the pigmentation of these shadows. I love my Morphe brushes so I’m not surprised these are up there on the quality scale. Only thing is that a lot of the shades in each palette look super similar and there are a lot of them! Options are great though and it’s pretty inexpensive anyway, just not sure if I need THAT many in a palette? But it could be fun to play with all of them and mix if needed.

LORAC Pro Palette

Lorac Pro Palette, $44.00. I like the shades in this one- they look very wearable and professional. I hear they’re pretty pigmented and by the looks of it, seems to be a mix of matte and shimmery shades which is great. Hmmm…

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

Too Faced Chocolate Bar, $49.00. Well, it smells like chocolate and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this one- that it blends really well and has great pigmentation. And I’d easily wear all of those colors! Very interested!

Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Clay Palette

Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette, $45.00. Again, love these pretty shades and the mix of matte and shimmer finishes. I like how the darker ones are on the brown side this time, aka more wearable for work perhaps?

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette
Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, $42.00. These look stunning and very natural, and I like the different finishes included. I could see myself falling in love with this.

Who knows, I may end up getting none, one, or all (lol ok, maaaaybe 2 at most), but I’d love to hear if you own any of these or just general thoughts! What palettes have you tried that you really love?!

  1. Hi Jen, love your blog it’s fab! I own the ABH modern renaissance and can say it is absolutely amazing! I did a whole review and makeup look on it on my site. The texture and quality of the eyeshadow are just beautiful. I’ve had my eye on the taste in bloom palette too as it just looks gorgeous. Would definitely recommend one of the two!

    1. Mmmmm now I really want them! They always get such good reviews, I think I might take the leap! I hear about Zoeva but don’t own anything from this brand- I will check out this caramel melange you speak of- I’m guessing lots of browns which sounds GORGEOUS! Thanks for the input! <3 <3
