Best makeup eyeshadow palette
August 2, 2019

There are no shortage of ways to make a statement with your makeup, but if you want an easy way to make a big splash, a great eyeshadow is your best bet. And it’s even easier with creative new makeup eyeshadow palettes, which pack an assortment of different colors, shades, and finishes — you can go nude or neon, subtle or smoky — so that you have lots of choices and can switch it up whenever you want. You can get dedicated eyeshadow palettes for different situations — a night out, a day at the office, or something in between — or get a few shades of each in a single palette!

MASSE is like shopping with your expert friend who is always honest with you. We don’t allow paid reviews or sponsored posts by marketers here, so you can be sure that each and every recommendation is from a real person who has used the product. Eyeshadow helps sets the tone for the rest of your look, so you definitely want legit opinions! And this list comes directly from favorites chosen by our users, so you don’t have to strain your eyes looking for some gimmick. We just want to help you make those eyes stand out!

With a nude tone, you’ll appear natural and understated, while metallic, vibrant and loud colors are great for nights out with friends. Some of the best eyeshadow makeup palettes specialize in one end of the spectrum or the other, while bigger palettes have a larger variety, making them must-carries you so that you can transition your look at any time. You never know when you’re going to go from the office to a night on the town, so a complete eyeshadow palette covers it all.

Whether you’re looking for natural matte shades, colorful shimmers, or a satin somewhere in between, there’s never been a better time to buy eyeshadow. So many brands have stepped up their game over the last number of years, so you’ll be able to find any style you want — and sometimes, they’ll all come in one convenient palette.

Murumuru Butter Eye Shadow Palette

$17.99By: Physicians Formula
While shea butter gets most of the play in skincare products, but murumuru butter may be just as effective — or even better. Derived from the seed of the murumuru palm tree, which is found in the rainforests of Brazil, murumuru butter is rejuvenating and hydrating, and when used in eyeshadow, it does double duty, giving your eyes a gorgeous glow while making them healthy all the while. Physicians Formula’s eye shadow palette comes with a dozen gorgeous shades, ranging from nude to deep aqua blue. MASSE users absolutely love this eye shadow; one reviewer says she was “blown away” by them.

Fall Into Frost

$37.58By: Morphe
If you’re looking for an eyeshadow palette that will cover all bases and cover them for a very long time, look no further than Morphe’s Fall into Frost Palette. It boasts 28 bold frosted colors that glimmer like precious gems you might find on different planets, as well as a row of seven more subtle mattes you can use in more subdued moments. MASSE users love the variety as well as the fact that the colors all seem to last forever — one shopper says she has had the same palette for three years, uses it all the time, and still hasn’t remotely hit pan on any of the shades!
LORAC’s Unzipped Eye Shadow Palette has ten natural nude shades that range the gamut from light to dark, all richly pigmented and astonishingly high quality. Their matte finish is gorgeous and MASSE users really can’t get enough — they say they have had it in their rotations for years, and it’s great for both every day and “weekend” looks. It’s truly a diverse, multi-purpose eyeshadow palette that you’ll come to love and rely on!

Pillowtalk Luxury Eyeshadow Palette

$53.00By: Charlotte Tilbury
Headed to work and have plans later, but can’t exactly bring an entire makeup kit with you? Charlotte Tilbury’s Luxury Eyeshadow Palette has you (and your eyelids) covered! Their Pillow Talk palette comes in four colors and styles that all complement one another and can be successively applied throughout the day. They call it a desk-to-disco palette, which means you start with the subtly enhanced nude look for your time at the office, then add on the smokey eye before you head out for evening cocktails. When it’s time to hit the club, you apply their glimmery Pop shade, which will make your eyes radiant, even in the dark of the dance floor. It’s one of the best eyeshadow palettes you will find for your extremely busy, extremely fun life.
Tom Ford’s trademark Eye Color Quad includes a nude eyeshadow palette that has everything you need in four gentle, graceful shades. There’s color for everyone in this eyeshadow palette, and each can be adjusted for different looks, from metallic to more natural satin finishes. MASSE love how rich they look — sometimes, keeping it simple leads to the biggest rewards.
