My Favorite Eye Shadows

Hello ladies!

I received a request to review what my favorite eye shadows were and I thought that was a great idea! Problem is I don't just have a few favorite eye shadows so I decided to do my favorite palette's of eye shadows.  I have three that I am in love with at this moment. Firstly, I'll start off with the most expensive and most well known palette and that is the Urban Decay Naked palette.

It seems as though everyone is in love with this palette and with good reason!  The pigment of the eye shadows are amazing and its such a neutral set that you can wear them everyday.  Best part for me was that you can go from day to night with just one palette.  My favorite for day time was half baked for the outer part of my lid and virgin to highlight my brow bone and inner tear duct.  At night I used creep for the outer part of my lid, sin on the inner part of my lid and virgin again to highlight.  The only down side to this palette is the price.  You can get Naked at Sephora or the Urban Decay website for $50.00, which in my eyes is a lot of money.  If you have the funds to do so I would recommend buying this palette its a great investment!
The second palette that I love is BH Cosmetics 28 Neutral color palette.  BH Cosmetics is not as well known as Urban Decay but its a great company that supplies a high quality product for half the price!
As you can see I love neutral colors.  They are easy to work with everyday.  This palette has great pigmentation and blends so easily, which to me is the best part.  Again with this palette you can go from day to night with its wide range of colors that you get.  Right now the palette is on sale at for $12.32.  There are also many other palette's available at BH so if you are into more bright colors they have that for you too.  Shipping is pretty quick usually around 5-7 days.  The one down size to this palette is that its huge! You are definitely going to need a make table with some drawers or a on the counter organizer to keep this stored away.  But on the other hand I guess since its so big you are getting a lot of product for your money.
The last palette and my #1 favorite out of all of them is Elf's Studio Endless Eye Pro Mini.  Elf is also a well known company.  They provide great products and even greater prices which is great for a mother on a budget like myself. 
I just recently purchased this palette from and I am in love! Right now they have this palette on sale for just $5.00 and you get 32 wonderful colors.  I usually don't like the palette's that come with tons of eye shadows because chance is your going use about 5-6 of them.  But when I started playing around with this palette I could see myself using almost all of them.  I've done a few smokey eyes with the darker colors on the right and each of them was well pigmented and blended with the lighter colors on the left.  I have also been wearing the champagne colors on a daily bases and I love them.  The one down side I would say for this palette is that you only get a little product of each color.  But overall this is my #1 go to palette both for the quality and the price.
If you ladies have any questions for me please do not hesitate to ask!
