Eyeshadow palettes!!! What a beautiful invention. I love having those super sultry shimmery eyeshadows and heck! I’m all about glitters 365 days per year …. Awwwwww! I wish!!!! But with my damned hooded eyes, I can’t let myself go crazy! How ironic that a girl who loves shadows so much has to miss out on a lot of looks because of the genetic shape of her eyes? 😪 Well, thankfully for you, my hooded eyes girlfriends, the matte look is super trendy right now, so let’s rock our matte eyeshadows. Here are my top 3 matte eyeshadow palettes that are perfect for beginners and flawless for the pros out there (+2 affordable options).
Becca Ombre Rouge
Such a beautiful day to day palette that makes redishhhh/pinkisssh shades, so ideal for fall and why not, all year long. The five colors included go so well together & the formula is ridiculously exquisite. Becca also makes an Ombre Nudes that is more on the Nude side (*I’m so funny*) that is also to consider. Why is this palette not more hyped is beyond me. (You can read my full review HERE)
If you haven’t already heard the merit of this palette, heu! maybe you were hiding under a rock somewhere, or unfortunately fell into a profound coma for awhile :). Seriously, this “Tartelette” deserves all the praise and more. It’s such a well formulated and well color coordinated ensemble. This beauty will never be obsolete! Years from now, this one will still be as trendy. Daytime to nighttime, no problem, this little number has it all. (You can read my full review HERE)
Kat Von D Shade + Light
A hooded eyes dream palette. This palette contains every neutral matte shades that you possibly need. Blendability A+, Pigmentation A+, Versatility A+, Affordability A+ (considering everything you get). Not more to say than it’s a sure winner. (My full review HERE)
On a budget? Here are some other good matte palette, well worth your buck !
Stila In The Know
This was my first totally matte eyeshadow palette and to this day still one of my favourite. In Canada, I see it often at less than 20$ at Winners.
Sonia Kashuk Eye Couture Neutral 02
At Target for less than 20$, this palette stands out and is tantamount to a lot of higher brands. If you never tried Sonia Kashuk eyeshadows, you are missing out… They are great.
Note: It’s my personal opinion, but drugstores’ eyeshadows, with the exception of NYX singles & Sonia Kashuk, are not sure bets, especially the mattes. If you want real quality, it’s well worth spending a little more $$$.
Thanks a lot for stopping by my beauties
