Favourite Palettes

 
I've been wanting to do a blog post about my favourite palettes for ages, but I've just never got round to it! However, today is the day - I'm bringing you palettes for all budgets and all purposes.

The 'Cult' Classic
When it comes to palettes, it doesn't get much more famous than Urban Decay. The Naked palettes are one of the most raved about products in the bloggersphere. I have the Naked 3 palette which is the most pink toned of the three. Everything people say about these palettes is true; the eyeshadows are buttery and blendable. The Naked 3 palette comes with a double ended eyeshadow brush which I love and the packaging is a sleek gold casing. You can buy the Naked 3 palette here for £37

The Luxury Option
The Marc Jacobs palettes certainly are not cheap, but they are gorgeous! Pictured here is 'The Innocent' - a beautiful three shadow set. It has a taupe for all over the lid, a dark brown eyeshadow for in the crease and a stunning gold glitter. There is no denying that you can find dupes for these on the high street, but if you like high end makeup, this is for you. This palette costs $39 and is available from Sephora here

The Budget Option
Moving from super expensive to super affordable; we have the Collection 'All About The Eyes' palette. Now this palette is actually endorsed by Little Mix, which isn't really my thing. However, you have to give the palette a chance because the quality is incredible. The best thing? It costs £2.99 - no investment is required but perfect eye makeup is somewhat guaranteed. You can pick up this palette from Superdrug here

The Palette For Contouring
Ever since I bought the Urban Decay Flushed Palette I've been obsessed with it! I have the shade 'Streak' which is perfect for my skintone. The bronzer is a perfect shade for contouring and the highlighter is really something special. I love taking this away with me when I travel as it has everything I need. You can buy the Urban Decay Flushed palette here for £21

The One That Was Limited Edition
Now I do feel bad about mentioning this, but I cannot do a favourite palettes post and not mention it. This is the Tarte Pin Up Girl Palette, featuring five of Tarte's famous blushers. I use this palette a lot and I love having these blushers in my collection. Now you cannot buy it anymore, but I have a couple of key takeaways for you. First of all, Tarte release these palettes at Christmas time, so if you want one, keep an eye out then! Second of all; the quality of Tarte blushers (and all their products) is incredible. Test a few things, you won't be disappointed. You can shop Tarte makeup at Sephora (here) and QVC (here). 

The One That Doesn't Get Enough Coverage
The last palette on the list is the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette, which I actually named by top palette for 2014. It's an incredible palette; it's packed with amazing shades and the quality is out of this world. They are pigmented, they apply well, they blend beautifully. You name what you want from an eyeshadow and these have it. The worst thing is that this palette doesn't seem to get the coverage it deserves! You can buy the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette here for £32

What are your favourite palettes? I'd love to hear all about them!
