I thought I’d do a round up post of eyeshadow palettes to to haul during the Sephora Sale! As you know the Sephora VIB Rouge Beauty Event takes place this week starting November 4th and gets you a whooping 20% Off your purchase with no exclusions!
This is a great time to haul some fantastic eyeshadow palettes but I think seasoned makeup addicts and even newer ones will find themselves migrating towards the massive, glittery Holiday palettes that brands put out this time of the year. I’m here to say that most of those palettes are avoidable. Don’t waste your money! There are a lot of quality eyeshadow palettes out there that are part of brand’s core collections. The limited edition force is strong, I know, I’m drawn into it too most days of my life but try to avoid the hype and dig deeper to score a good deal on an eyeshadow palette that’s worthy of your cash!
Here’s a list of eyeshadow palettes to haul during the Sephora and ones to avoid too!
I highly recommend grabbing either or both of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette (Review) and Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario Eyeshadow Palettes (Review) if they come back in stock by the time the sale rolls around. Both offer smooth, creamy, easy to blend pigmented eyeshadow shades that made me very happy I purchased both. Both are worth a haul but if you prefer more subtle nude looks Master Palette by Mario is the way to go! If you’re a bit more daring the Modern Renaissance is the best option for you with plenty of festive berry and cranberries shades that will rock the Holiday season!
It’s old but it’s awesome! The Tarte Tartelette Tease (Review) contains six velvety eyeshadows that bend beautifully and create a simple yet stunning eye look. It’s one of Tarte’s cutest, tiniest, and nicest palettes to use as is NOT as disappointing as some of their Holiday Palettes.
The Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics (Review) is definitely one to grab up if you enjoy mattes. This one is filled with warm neutral mattes and is quite a great introduction palette if you’re scared of mattes.
If it’s shimmer you want, go with the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette (Review). This one is packed with eight shimmery shades that look gorgeous all their own or used as an overcoat atop your favorite mattes to add a little sparkle to you look!
Any and all of the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye Con No 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette are an excellent pick during the sale! These contain seven velvety eyeshadow shades that applied beautifully on lids and blend like butter!
The NARS NARSissist L’amour Toujours L’amour Eyeshadow Palette (Review) is a fond favorite of mine. These shadows have an interesting gel-formula that’s more along the line of the Make Up For Ever Artist Eyeshadow Collection. I found the texture was easy to apply on these and I liked how the shades didn’t accentuate my finer lines! If you’re looking for easier to use shades for aging eyes this is a good way to go!
Now I’m also hear to warn you on palettes to avoid! I think some of the massive Holiday Palettes this year are tempting but terrible. Tarte Pretty Paintbox Collector’s Makeup Case, Too Faced The Chocolate Shop, Too Faced Grande Hotel Cafe are all cute but avoidable as these are not good representations of the brand’s eyeshadow formulas. Yes, they are very pretty but I promise the contents aren’t as incredible as what you can get from the permanent range of products and palettes that are offered from any of these brands.
I hope this mini guide helps you decide which eyeshadow palettes to haul during the Sephora sale and which to avoid.
