Eyeshadow Palettes | 2019 Editor’s Favorites
In 2019, I reviewed 216 eyeshadow palettes (which does come with duos, trios, and eyeshadow units), so you’ll be able to consider that narrowing that right down to a digestible record of favorites ended up being tougher than expected! ColourPop was once accountable for 44 additions (once more, it will additionally come with choices like Super Shock Shadow trios!) with Natasha Denona coming in with 17 opinions (integrated a number of Five-pan, everlasting palette opinions) and Tom Ford with 13 opinions (quite a lot of quads introduced this yr).
I used to be satisfied to look some cooler-toned palettes to be had this yr, like ColourPop’s Smoke Show and Marc Jacobs Steeletto, together with much less orange/red-toned neutrals like ColourPop’s Going Coconuts and Hola Chola palettes.
Unsurprisingly, Pat McGrath and Natasha Denona ruled my favorites; they’re simply the 2 manufacturers I achieve for many regularly in palette layout. I nonetheless assume that the mini Subversive and Sublime palettes are some actually superb buys for somebody short of to take a look at Pat McGrath’s shimmer method. The new, restricted version Pat McGrath Quads have been all pretty to paintings with, whilst new Motherships Midnight Sun and Divine Rose carried out smartly and have been extra cohesive than her unique Motherships.
Natasha Denona Biba is an absolute workhorse impartial palette for me, and I really like the way it’s organized. I’m hoping we’ll see a continuation of smaller layout palettes, like Natasha Denona’s Sunrise, in 2020. The more moderen creamy matte end is incredible, so palms crossed that continues for use in any long term palettes (a long way awesome to the unique matte method!).
Sydney Grace 3 other nine-pan bundles this yr, and I’m at all times recreation to take a look at new Sydney Grace eyeshadows! I love the speculation of bundles since they’re like a pre-made palette however will also be organized and included as you notice are compatible inside of your singles. Total shocker, I do know, however all 3 carried out excellently!
If you’re unfamiliar with how I love to do my year-end favorites, right here’s the low down: I pull from the goods I reviewed in 2019, without reference to whether or not they have been new, restricted version, or a longtime vary I’ve best simply gotten round to reviewing. These are private favorites, so they will or will not be the best possible rated merchandise reviewed all the way through the yr (despite the fact that they’re going to have a tendency to be higher rated, naturally!). (You can take a look at easiest of 2018 in the event you ignored it.)
