Let’s be honest, how many of you have piles upon piles of eyeshadows stored away?! Most of which are probably a few months, or even years old*. Maybe it’s something about the fact that there is still product in the makeup pods and palettes, which makes it hard for us to separate from our beloved shadows.
For this post, I looked at many shadow palettes in search for not only five of the most expensive eyeshadow palettes; but also five of the better recommended palettes. Because let’s face it, nobody wants to dish out a couple hundred dollars on makeup that isn’t the best.
This shadow palette comes with four neutral shades that are universally flattering. You can toss this little palette in your purse to create a day-to-night look. It’s nice having all the shades in one palette to do that. You are definitely spending that 100+ dollars on this palette for the brand and luxurious packaging, but if you are looking to splurge Serge Lutens is said to be ” the genius of fragrance and legendary master of make-up”.
This little quartet of colors looks like your average palette, but you are actually paying more due to the fact the shadow blocks are strategically places to create an S. Regardless of that, it’s a good thing with these highly concentrated pigments, a little bit goes a long way. Once again, you have a nice array of neutral shades to create a nice look with contour and highlights to emphasize your eyes.
Ok, this is not much of a palette since there is only one shade; but the reason I included this sleek looking shadow, is because considering it is only one color $50 seems a little steep. This Sisley shadow is similar in the one above, as it is also rich in pigmentation and looks like a satiny-metallic shade. Most metallic colors are flattering for most skin tones, so you can definitely create various looks with this pricey little beauty.
Though this Armani palette might seem pricey, you also have to consider you getting a 2-in-1 with the face powder included within the compact. This palette is referred to as the mink eyeshadow trio, due to the colors resemble various fur shades. The texture is also soft and velvety, once again to match the feel of fur.
Have you ever spent $600 on a single piece of makeup?! Sounds crazy right, but if you are looking to splurge on a palette, this is definitely your go-to. Sephora makes very good quality makeup, so this kit will definitely be recommended by those who have tried it. It has 80 high-pigmented shadows which are literally all you will need to create a various array of looks. Though it looks crazy expensive, this is actually a pretty good buy if you are a huge makeup-jukie, or are in the makeup business. The reason behind this is, once you break dow the cost, you are paying about $7.50 per shadow which is relatively low considering other brands.
