4 Eye-shadow Palettes you need this Christmas


Happy Thursday everyone!

No matter how tempting it is, you can’t deny that Christmas is around the corner and is creeping up on us extremely fast. So today I thought I’d share a few beauty products I think will be great for any women in your life, including yourself of course.


Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics


Probably one of the most iconic eye-shadow palette’s in history. If you’re a make-up fiend like myself, you’ll most probably own at least one of the infamous Urban Decay Naked palettes. I’ve been collecting these palettes for so many years now, ever since I fell in love with Naked One. There’re always my go-to palettes for a simple day-time look so when I received their latest addition to the line, the Ultimate Basics palette, I was thrilled! Firstly the packaging is stunning! A rose-gold embossed palette, it almost looks like a ray of sunlight. The palette comes complete with 12 matte colours, a large mirror and a dual-ended eye-shadow brush. I can tell this is quickly going to become my favourite go-to palette this autumn/winter. If you’re after some good quality neutral eye-shadow colours, this is definitely a palette worth adding to your wish list. Retails for £38.50.

Urban Decay Full Spectrum


Admittedly I have never tried any other products except the Naked palettes from Urban decay so I was very excited to give this bad boy a try. Once again I need to address the fabulous packaging, the sleek black palette is engraved with a colourful, rainbow embossed logo making it so eye-catching. The palette comes complete with 21, yes 21 eye-shadows, a large mirror and a dual-ended eye-shadow brush. All 21 colours are bold, bright, flamboyant and shimmery making it perfect for the spring/summer season. I actually think this palette would be perfect for professional make-up artists as it has a great selection of fun colours to create some cool designs. As for me I think I’ll be reaching for the Full Spectrum palette during the festive season, especially on Christmas day! Bare in mind that this is a limited edition palette so once it’s gone it’s gone, add it to your Christmas wish list before it sells out! Retails for £43.

Bourjois Le Nudes & Le Smokey


Two of the cutest eye-shadow palettes to add to your wish list this season. Bourjois have recently released a collection of mini eye-shadow palettes, a nude palette for the day and a smokey palette for the night. Both palettes come complete with 8 shimmer eye-shadows, a panoramic mirror and a brush applicator. The designs of the palettes are quite playful and young, definitely not palettes I would usually purchase myself, however I do think they would make great stocking fillers. Especially for a young teenager/woman who has recently discovered make-up. The price point is nice and affordable, starting from £8.99 and could potentially be one to add to your wish list this Christmas.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these eye-shadow palettes or if you would add any of them to your Christmas wish list?
