If you didn’t know before, we are just a little makeup obsessed over here at Four of a Kind Diaries. While we are usually super busy to sit down and create a bunch of fun looks, we are always scrolling through the home screen of sephora and ulta or checking out the thousands of looks that Instagram has to offer. If you are into makeup as well then you know that this summer quite a few amazing eye shadow palletes graced us with their presence. Below I have listed eight of the dozens that I think deserve the honor of gracing your makeup arsenal.
1| Jaclyn Hill x Morphe
If you are into the makeup community and haven’t heard about this pallete then you must be living under a rock. I don’t say that to be rude but there has been so much hype, controversy, and honest to goodness excitement over it. Jaclyn curated these shades over the last two years to bring her fans her all time favorite shades. And boy did she deliver. The shades are all quite pigmented and go on smoothly. She has already launched this product and has done a relaunch that have both sold out within a few hours. She will be relaunching soon and we will make sure to let you guys know on our Instagram when she does!
Cost: $38 plus shipping
2| Sephora Pro : Editorial Edition
Let me start by saying that my eye looks usually range from super neutral browns to gray smokey looks. I have only added crazy color once or twice, but when I saw this pallete I knew that I needed to step out of my comfort zone. This pallete is perfect for both the seasoned MUA who wants to add to their kit and the amateur who wants to start using color. This offers every bright shade in matte and shimmers and even gives you a decent black and white shade. I am excited to start bringing more color into my looks and this pallete will definitely help.
Cost: $68 but they do offer free shipping
3| Kat Von D Shade and Light Glimmer Eye Contour Pallete
If you are a fan of the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour kit then you will definitely want to add this to your crew. The Kat Von D crew created an eye contour kit that ranges from cool to warm tones and each shadow builds your look by adding different levels of dimension with each shadow. Definitely a pallete you will want to add if you love the more neutral toned yet still intense eye looks.
Cost: $49 plus shipping
4| Sephora Pro : Warm Eye Shadow Pallete
Much like the editorial sephora pro pallete, this pallete is perfect for both the seasoned MUA and the beginner. This pallete is RIGHT UP MY ALLEY with the warm neutral shades! I saw this and knew I needed to have it. It has a good mix of matte and shimmer shades. The gold tones alone sold me on this pallete. The shadows are also highly pigmented, creamy and super blendable.
Cost: $68 but Sephora does offer free shipping
5| Urban Decay Naked Heat Pallete
I feel like I don’t even need to say much about this pallete because for years Urban Decay has built a cult around the Naked palletes. These shadows definitely do hold up to the hype though. The pallete also comes with a decent shadow brush that not many other brands offer. If you are looking for an every day wear pallete then you will find it here.
Cost: $54 plus shipping
6| Too Faced Glitter Bomb Eye Shadow Collection
When I saw all of my favorite beauty bloggers receive this pallete in their PR boxes I was instantly intrigued. Too Faced launched a pallete of all glitter shades (pinks, purples, gold, gray, and a blue/green) and they switched it up by adding both a brightening base and an intensifying base. In simpler terms a white shadow that you can put down as a base to make the shadows their true pan colors (just a little brighter) and a black shadow that will intensify and darken the shadows on your eye. I wouldn’t suggest this pallete to those who are unsure about colors and shimmer (that’s all you get in this pallete) but I do suggest this to my MUA babes and those who are not afraid to play with color and textures.
Cost: $45 plus shipping
7| Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Pallete
This pallete is a little different from the other ones because not only does in contain eye shadows but also face powders! Tarte claims that you will be able to contour you eyes, nose, and cheeks with just this one pallete. It contains a total of nine eye shadows and three face powders that are perfect for your whole look. If I can create my whole look with one pallete then we have a winner in my opinion.
Cost: $46 plus shipping
8| Sephora Pro : Cool Eyeshadow pallete
Sephora knew what they were doing when they came out with these palletes. They came out with three different palletes that people are always on the look out for. The totally editorial one, the warm one, and here the cool toned one. I don’t usually reach for my cool toned shadows unless I am getting ready for an event or a night out but with this pallete, I can see myself reaching for the cooler tones a little more. This pallete has a lot more pinkier tones but still has a good mix of mattes and shimmers. Definitely worth the buy for my cool tone lovers.
Cost: $68 plus shipping
