Today we’re talking a difficult, yet necessary topic: choosing my favorite eyeshadow palettes. Was it a hard task? Of course. Palettes are my number 1 favorite makeup product to buy, try and use. Eyeshadow was my first love. Even when I wasn’t that much into makeup, eyeshadow was the first makeup product I started using regularly. I loved the colors and I loved trying out new combinations. Hence my love for palettes. If I had to pick 5 palettes that I would repurchase in a heartbeat, I would pick these.
Lately I finally committed to trying some matte eyeshadow palettes. I love my shimmers, but a good matte is a must have of course as well. A palette that I have had for a while, but that I had never gotten round to reviewing is The Balm’s Meet Matte Nude. This palette is much raved about and since it is fully matte it just never really captured my attention too much. Now that I’m getting into it more, I figured it was time for a review.

Last winter I had matte phase for a brief spell. The reason? Trying out this palette. I already featured it in one of my Shop my Stash posts and I had already been using it for a few weeks before I started doing the looks for this review. Matte eyeshadow is not exactly my forte and I wanted to make sure I gave this palette a fair shot. Because mostly, matte palettes aren’t my favorite as I feel they are quite boring (don’t shoot me). Does this palette proof me wrong?

I gave you the review for the new 16 pan Catrice palette last Saturday and today it’s time for a review on the new 22 pan Essence palette. Where the Catrice version was all about the neutrals, Essence has decided to throw in some brights. And since one of my goals for 2018 is to wear more colorful shadows, I figured I’d give it a go.

In today’s video I’m talking you through 4 fiery eyeshadow palettes that are all about those orange and red tones.
