Product Review -- Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette

I love a good eye shadow palette, but I'm always lured in by the convenience of a palette that combines eye and cheek products in one.

They're obviously great for travel, but I also really like them for days when I don't want to think too much about my makeup.

I was especially intrigued by Stila's Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palettes, though, because they created four different color schemes to complement various skin tones.

Product Review -- LORAC Pro Eye Shadow Palette 3

I have both the LORAC Pro Eye Shadow Palette 1 and 2, and I get plenty of use out of both.

I'm also a big fan of LORAC's shadow formula -- they're just so soft and creamy! -- so it seemed like a no brainer to pick up the newly released Pro Eye Shadow Palette 3.

Like the first two palettes, 3 comes in extremely thin, compact cardboard packaging, making it very easy to store. There's a small mirror inside that's really only good for touch-ups, but you do get a mini Behind the Scenes Eye Primer (which is actually one of my favorite eye primers).

Product Review -- Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

I've always had really good luck with the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) eye shadow palettes.

Which means I've never purchased one that I didn't love.

And yet, I still haven't gotten around to purchasing any of the brand's single shadows.

Weird, right?

But that's sort of beside the point -- my real point is that I often decide to buy an ABH palette without ever seeing it.

I'll hear that they're coming out with something and just assume that it's something I'll want.

That wasn't exactly the case with the ABH Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette.

The first time I heard about it was when I saw a photo on Instagram, and it was quite literally love at first sight.

Product Review -- Tarte Swamp Queen Palette

I'm a pretty big fan of Tarte, so I'd say that, conservatively speaking, I purchase at least 75% of the palettes that they put out.

I'm also a big fan of supporting people in the YouTube/blogging beauty community, which means I was pretty sure that I'd pick up the Swamp Queen Palette that Tarte put out in collaboration with grav3yardgirl from YouTube.

However, what really sold me on the palette was the colors -- it's an interesting combination of warm peachy, reddish tones and some pretty purple-y, taupe-y shades, all of which are right in my wheelhouse.

Product Review -- Buxom Dolly's Wild Side Eyeshadow Palette

About a year ago, Buxom came out with individual shadows.

I've always been a fan of the brand, having enjoyed all of the products from the line that I tried, and I'd liked their previous foray into the world of eye shadow -- I don't believe they're available any longer, but they were quints that came in little black compacts similar to their blush packaging -- so I was interested in giving the new shadows a go.

But there's always so much going on in the world of makeup that I didn't get around to picking any up for quite some time.

When I finally decided to take the plunge, I actually opted for a pre-made palette of the shadows.

Dolly's Wide Side Eyeshadow Palette contains six of the shadows, which normally retail for $12 each. The palette is only $40, though, so you're getting nearly 3 shadows free.

And the size of the shadows that you get in the Dolly Palette are identical to those that you would purchase individually.

Product Review -- Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette

I've mentioned before that I've kind of become obsessed with blush palettes lately.

I just love having a bunch of pretty colors in one convenient place.

Most of the blush palettes that I've picked up are on the pricey side, so I was really excited to try the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette -- because for just $10, you get eight shades.

That's a pretty great deal, right?
