Eyeshadow Palette Haul


Over the past couple of months, I picked up a few eyeshadow palettes and I absolutely love them. All these eyeshadow palettes are so gloriously pigmented and it's always a pleasure using them to create various looks.   I think I have come to a point where I cannot be bothered with eyeshadows that are not intensely pigmented. Most of the eyeshadows in my collection have great colour pay off and wear time. I am going to declutter my eyeshadow collection soon and maybe I will share my process on here if I get a chance. I have shared majority of these products on Instagram so this is more like a mini review. Right let's dive in...

Lorac Unzipped Palette // Link //$42 or an Amazon Link
Last year, the man got me the Lorac Unzipped Gold Palette from the US and I was over the moon. I still love that palette and it's very special to me. This year, he also got me the regular Unzipped Palette and I just could not contain my happiness. Lorac makes one of the best eyeshadow palettes and I feel like the Unzipped Palettes have incredible quality. The Unzipped Palette has basically all the shades I ever want in an eyeshadow palette especially for everyday wear. There are lovely crease brown shades, brow highlight shades, peach shades, gold shades, rich dark brown and burgundy shades. The possibilities of the looks you can create with this palette seems endless. The shadows are intensely pigmented and have great wear time. I have noticed some fallout but it is nothing too terrible. I will be reviewing this palette when I have a chance to edit all my photos.



Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Palette // Link // £18
You all know how much I cherish Zoeva palettes and I already own two others- the Cocoa Blend Palette and the Smoky Palette. I have been tempted by the other palettes in their collection but I exercised some self control (so I thought). Well, that self control flew out of the window when they launched the Zoeva Matte Palette. It has 10 eyeshadows just like the regular Zoeva Eyeshadow Palettes but all the shades are matte. I don't think I have a palette like this in my collection so I knew it was only a matter of time before it made its way into my eyeshadow stash. The shadows are very pigmented as expected from Zoeva. There is very minimal fall out with this palette which is very surprising especially for a matte palette. The texture is really smooth and applying these eyeshadows is so easy. I reserve this palette mainly for my crease colour and it has all the colours I could possibly think of!!



Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette // Link //£39.50
Before the launch of the Naked Heat Palette, I was contemplating adding another Urban Decay Naked Palette to my collection. I only own the Naked 3 which has mainly rose gold and rose pink shades which I adore. When I saw the Naked Heat Palette reviews, I knew I will be finding my way to the nearest beauty counter to purchase it. I held out for a bit to see if I could get some discount and believe me, it was difficult. All the places where I could accrue points and get some discount off the palette had sold out so I ended up buying it from the Urban Decay store in Kings Cross station on my way to Scotland. This is the palette I have always dreamt of owning because I love every single shade in it. There are 12 eyeshadows in this palette and I absolutely love the sturdy but pretty packaging. The palette is a nice mix of matte and shimmer finishes which is right down my alley. It has an eyeshadow brush in it which I am not mad about because these brushes are better quality than other eyeshadow brushes that usually come in palettes. The texture of the eyeshadows are buttery with minimal fall outs. I don't think I need to comment on how pigmented they are because they are beautifully pigmented. I even think the quality of these eyeshadows are better when compared to the other UD palettes I have tried (including the ones I have swatched in store). I can't wait to share some looks I have created with this palette and a full review.



Fenty Beauty// Link //from £16 (Full Review here)
Okay, I just had to throw that in because I can't get over this brand. I know it is not an eyeshadow palette but hear me out.  It has been a long time since I purchased a number of products from a single brand especially a brand that is new on the block. I am sure Fenty Beauty by Rihanna needs no introduction because it has been the hot topic on the beauty radar. I went to Harvey Nichols and purchased all the products on my little list and I am patiently waiting for the holiday collection (launching on 13th October 2017). I have a full review on here if you fancy a read and it's a long one so grab a cup of tea/coffee or whatever drink you love. I love all the products and I have been using them non-stop since I purchased them. I just can't bring myself to use any other product and I always find myself unconsciously comparing other products to Fenty beauty offerings.  I think the foundation is my all time favourite product and I know I will just repurchase a backup because I just don't want to hear that my shade is no longer available. For a new beauty brand to release 40 shades of foundation which spans a good spectrum of skin tones, I think Fenty Beauty deserves a resounding round of applause.


Overall Thoughts
That's pretty much all the things I have been hauling and loving so far. I have a couple more products which are just repurchases and a few Drugstore ones which I may share in a separate drug store haul. I have found it difficult to get right back into the swing of blogging because I have a backlog of posts which I want to talk about. I am getting there so do bear with me while I get back into the swing of things slowly but surely. Hope you have had a great weekend so far. Have you tried any of these products?
