Loving Lately: New Eye Shadow Palettes

Now that I've been the proud owner of the Naked Palette for a year I am convinced that high end eye palettes are 100% worth the investment. I'm feeling like I've hit a bit of an eye makeup rut lately, so I'm debating about investing in a new palette. (Or maybe my Mom will read this and get me one of these for an early Christmas present. Just kidding Mom, but if you want to send me one I'd totally be okay)

These are the three palettes I've narrowed it down to... 
LORAC PRO Palette
The LORAC Pro Palette is GORGEOUS. Half matte and half shimmer, I think there are a ton of looks that you could create with this. There are a few similarities to the naked palette though, so I'm a little hesitant.
Too Faced The Return of Sexy Palette
The Too Faced The Return of Sexy Palette is shimmery and fabulous! I love the idea of this combo of three palettes in one. Browns, Purples and Grays. All are go-to color combos for me, plus I don't have a ton of these colors in my collection, so it would be a great way to expand.

Urban Decay The Vice Palette
The UD Vice Palette was just released, and from what I hear it's going to be the next big thing. I'm more of a neutral girl, so the bright colors are a bit scary. However I love UD shadows and they are all super blend-able so the pigmentation isn't super scary if you tone it down with some of the neutrals.

You're eye makeup is bold and I love it! I'm more of a mascara and out the door kind of girl.

Elle Sees said...

I'd definitely go with UD over the Too Faced palette! I was not very impressed with it! =/

Carey Uxa Morgan said...

Oh gosh... I die for that Lorac pallette. Great stuff!

The Lorac Pro one looks amazing! I want it!!!

Krista @ Blonde Aesthetic said...

I like having ones that have colors that I normally wouldn't use. It's kind of a daily reminder not to be stuck in a rut, since then all these gorgeous colors go to waste!

I would want that Too Faced The Return of Sexy Palette...so pretty!

Evani Gatsby said...

Great loving lately! I've been contemplating the Naked palatte but I haven't taken the plunge... I mean how long does it take for you to run out of a one of the colors if its your favorite one?

Stephanie said...

I've heard sooo many good things about the Lorac Pro Palette - I vote you get that one! I am dying to get that one myself because it has a nice mix of matte and shimmer shades so you can make tons of great looks from it!

I still haven't invested in the Naked eyeshawdow palette even though everyone says too- are the high end ones really that much better?

Sarah said...

I vote the Lorac, love the mix of shimmer and matte. Though I think Her Late Night Cravings just did a review of the UD...haven't watched it yet but they always have great advice/reviews.

Nora Aradi said...

I have that third Urban Decay palette and am in love with it. It has some bright and shimmery colors, but they look so good on and they're so fun when you're going out! Not necessarily a palette for the office, but hey, that's why I have the Naked palette :)

noire said...

Me likey likey the LORAC palette, it looks so pretty! Plus it has many colours to play around with and matte shades for more subtle looks, adding to Santa's list LOL xx

Lauren @ Lawfully Wedded Wife said...

Love these! I've been thinking about getting the Naked 2 palette myself.

Allyssa said...

I should really invest in a nice eye shadow palette (or 2). These all look great!

My-cliffnotes said...
