Eye Shadow Collection & Reviews

Hi! Today I will be writing a post on my eye shadow collection. I don't exactly own a lot of eye products, however I will still be talking through the ones that I own and whether they are any good...

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone

I bought this palette when I went to Spain in October; I saw it in a shop, got really excited and bought it immediately! So far I'm impressed. It was quite cheap I think ($4.99 on the website) so it's a great deal. The colours stay on well throughout the day. My only concern are the colour choices: the green in particular. It looks nice lightly patted onto another colour, but I'm not sure how good it would look if it was packed on the lid. You can see from my swatches that the colours are well pigmented - if you have access to Wet n Wild where you live I think you should buy this palette!

Urban Decay Naked 2

I'm sure you are all well aware of this palette as everyone raves about it. I made the splurge earlier this year and I definitely don't regret it. Just encase you have somehow been living under a rock: the Naked 2 contains a very nice range of neutral eye shadows that are perfect for everyday wear. The brush that comes with the palette is high quality as well (I keep forgetting to wash it though which isn't good). Overall, I love it!

Kat Von D Monarch

I've already taken photos of the shades in the palette, to see them click here. Now this could possibly be my favourite palette that I own, Firstly, I love the colours. It contains many neutrals, and more mattes than the naked palette! I've got to admit that there a bit of fallout with this palette, but I can't ignore that the eye shadows are SO pigmented. I would say that the matte colour is 10 times better than the Naked 2's Foxy. I recommend this palette to anyone who wants great quality neutrals. 

No.7 Mini Eye Palette (Christmas 2014)

I received this palette as a gift last year, and I loved how it looked. The packaging has  a beautiful gold lid which I think looks really nice. The colours are quite nice too, although I think the colours on the bottom row aren't as nice. They do have pretty flecks of glitter though. I was very disappointed when I used the shadows for the first time. I didn't think they were very pigmented at all, and for that reason they just sucked. I haven't tried them out recently but maybe I will give them another go. Not very impressed though..

A selection of single eye products...

1. B. Makeup Creme Eyeshadow

I got this product quite a while ago so I couldn't find any information about it; it was from a free gift for spending a certain amount of money. I don't get much use out of it but its a nice coppery colour which looks quite nice on the lid. It isn't very creamy and I prefer the Colour Tattoos, but it's a nice vegan/cruelty free product!

2. Maybelline Colour Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow

This Maybelline cream eye shadow is a nice product for days when you don't feel like wearing much makeup. I'm not sure if I chose the best colour to suit me, but the formula itself is nice and creamy; it also stays on well during the day. The only downside is that there isn't a great colour range in my opinion. If you find one that you like I would try it out!

3. Sephora Single Eye Shadow

I received this as a free sample when I spend WAY TOO MUCH in Seville's Sephora. I like this colour and it is actually similar to the B. Eye Shadow; this one has more of a hint of brown though. This product is pretty, however I don't use it much since I like to use my palettes. If you do get this as a free sample make sure to try it out though.

And that's all for now! I hope you enjoyed this post and learnt some good product recommendations for your future shopping. Have a nice week!
