    Promising review: "The colors are highly pigmented, smooth and buttery to apply. They last all day when used with an eyeshadow primer. These colors are heavenly and the color combinations are endless. My absolute favorite is using Unlimited on the inner half of the lid, Unleashed on the outer half... a touch of Unedited (or Unafraid) to darken just the outer corner, & Unlocked on the inner corner/tear duct. Unlocked is the most beautiful pale shimmery lemon... and Undressed under the brow smooths it all out and pulls everything together." —catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $35.

    4. Ucanbe Fruit Punch Palette supplies the pop of color your makeup routine has been missing. With 15 shades packed with a ~punch~ of color, you can have fun using it to create cut crease looks and even colorful winged liner.

    Promising review: "I really enjoy this palette! I find it so easy to blend and I use my fingers to apply the shimmer shadows and have no issues. I find it so easy to find the complementary color schemes and I like that you have the option to mix and match colors. I really do enjoy not having to overthink which ones to pair with which. Such a lovely everyday palette. A staple in my opinion." —val87

    Get it from Sephora for $48.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "Warm copper, brown, bronze. Who doesn't like those colors? I actually have two 'Queen of Glow' palettes — one I purchased for myself and another I got as a gift (I know, the giver really knows me well!) Not mad because this is so beautiful. The first Charlotte Tilbury quad that really caught my eye! The nice thing about only having four colors to work with is the focus on quality, performance, and complimentary shades." —LovetoLoveLife

    Get it from Sephora for $53 (available in 14 palettes).

    8. Naked 2 Basics Palette contains strictly matte shades that can be used to create a super natural eyelook or even an intense smokey eye. It's also tiny and won't take up too much room in your cosmetics bag.

    Amazon

    Both my mom and I have this eyeshadow palette and it's really an amazing staple to have in your makeup collection. As I've gotten older, I don't love shimmery shades as much, and neither does my mom. These fool-proof six matte shades are honestly all you need to add some depth to the eyes without a ton of fallout that some shimmer shades can supply.

    Promising review: "I really like the colors. I have a unique skin tone, fair- olive undertones with some pinkish tones, and most neutral eye shadows seem to just disappear, but this one is highly pigmented and nicely matches my skin color. It does not crease even without a primer. I like this line because it does not test on animals." —Zoey

    Get it from Amazon for $29.

    9. Nars Voyageur Mini Palette takes the place of your larger palettes with a much more simplified shade range. These can be applied dry or wet for an opaque payoff.

    Get it from Sephora for $32 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I got this palette as a cheap mini to carry with me on month long a trip abroad, as I was scared to bring my expensive name brand eye shadows. I have had this for almost five months now and still find myself using it every day for a glowy, natural look. I personally prefer the matte shades over the shimmery ones, and love how well they blend and that they have good staying power, especially when used over a primer or under setting spray." —Ali

    Get it from Amazon for $9.02 (available in three themed color palettes).

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This palette is absolutely gorgeous. I seriously love every shade! The mattes are unique colors that you can build up if you want to and the glitters are just stunning. The first time I used this palette (with primer and setting spray of course), I had my makeup on for 12 hours and my eyes still looked nearly perfect with almost zero fade or creasing at the end of the day. The quality is great and you can make a variety of looks from every day to going out. This is my favorite palette I own right now, and I definitely recommend it." —Emm44

    Get it from Sephora for $67.

I have had my other one (Heat) for over a year, and I am not even halfway though it. Best eye shadow I have ever used. Worth every penny." —Brianna Bowers

    Get it from Amazon for $43.08.

    I LOVE this palette (and I also know so many people who swear by it too). The shade range is just *chef's kiss*. You can create so many looks from classic, to sultry, to smokey, to natural, you really can't go wrong with this palette. They also are some of the most blendable shadows and are so buttery to the touch. 10/10.

    Promising review: "This is an excellent palette. Highly pigmented, smooth and highly bendable. A perfect palette! This was my first Lorac palette. I love it so much, I just keep buying more of them." —Eric Good

    Promising review: "The Marc Jacobs Eye-Comic Multi-Finish Palettes are one of my top three favorite palettes, I now own four. They are very pigmented, easy to place, blend, and stack. The shimmers do not need to be wet but are even more gorgeous wet. Each palette has a perfect light brow tone, at least one transition tone or to be used alone, and two deeper colors for more colorful or day-to-night looks. Scandalust is currently my favorite day-to-night palette. I’ve owned this palette since 2018 and use it for everyday light looks and going out looks." —rabidfaery
