Cleanse the Palette

eye shadow 1

Welcome back Keauties! Last week we dove into fashion and makeup trends so I thought this week we’d settle back into makeup products to review. In particular, eye shadows! I don’t know about you, but eye shadow makes or breaks my makeup look. There’s many varieties of products to chose from and ingredients to avoid that i’ll inform you about today. Let’s jump right in!

Lorac Unzipped

Eye shadows are essential for giving your eyes a pop of color and the illusion of bigger pupils. The first palette i’d like to talk about is the Lorac Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette. This palette has all of the basic neutrals and pinks essential for any makeup look. What I love about Lorac’s products is their use of oil and fragrance free ingredients that don’t irritate the skin or flake off in a couple of hours. Carol Shaw, the founder of the line, infuses plant extracts, emollients (which are non-cosmetics moisturizers), and conditioners that don’t make you feel worried of breaking out in. Retailing at $42.00, it’s well worth the money. Mine has lasted me almost two years and counting!

Modern Renaissance

Anastasia Beverly Hills is known for their eyebrow products, but what if I told you their eyeshadows are just as great? This palette consists of eleven matte shades and three metallic: Primavera, antique bronze, and vermeer. These shadows are very blend able and durable throughout the day, and offer a wide range of colors to choose from! Retailing at $42.00 as well, this is a little pricey if you’re just looking for date night eye shadows. I’d recommend getting the individual pods that are high in pigment and only $12.00!

This twenty-eight matte color palette is a must have for everyday occasions. Not only are the colors versatile, but the pigmentation is crazy for how affordable it is. These colors work great on every skin tone and won’t flake or fade with little wear time. You can also make these shades stand out even more with just a spritz of water or setting spray before applying on each lid. Retailing at $12.50, this palette is a product you really can’t pass up!

Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette


Tarte is mostly known for it’s blushes . If you’ve never tried their cheek stains you’re surely missing out! Tarte is one of those brands that fully discloses that it doesn’t use harsh chemicals and fragrances in any of their products. Their makeup line is formulated without any parabens (a chemical used as a preservative in makeup and skin products), mineral oil, phthalates (chemical used mostly in plastics to make them more durable), tricloslan  (chemical used to also aid in preventing bacterial contamination-could alter hormonal balance), sodium lauryl sulfate (effective foaming agent found in most hygienic products), and gluten. Their products glide on your lids with ease and have high pigmentation that can be seen from quite afar! If this palette interests you, the Amazonian Clay Palette retails at $53.00 and will be the only palette you need for every occasion!


Play Around!

Eyeshadows are fun makeup products you can play around in to completely change up your look or  make it look more presentable. If these palettes recommended weren’t in your interest that ‘s okay! There’s plenty of palettes to have trial and errors with until you find the one most suitable for you. Remember to check for harsh ingredients in every product you buy to save your skin from irritating rashes or breakouts that could be prevented.
