Beauty Diaries Vol. II - Go-To Eyeshadows

1) Inglot Freedom Palette

2) Urban Decay Naked Palette (original)

3) Lancome Color Design Single Shadow in Positive (Matte)

For all my girls who are makeup lovers, here's another makeup post for you! I didn't realize how few of these I've done until I went back into my archive and realized I only had a Volume I to my Beauty Diaries series...! These three shadows/palettes are probably my most-used, most loved and most highly recommended. 

1) Inglot Freedom Palette with matte shades #360, #335, #337 (left to right) - I am a HUGE fan of matte shadows, and I think Inglot does them best. I love their freedom palette system, where you can buy an empty palette (they have duos, trios, quads, and even larger palettes), and fill it with single shadows of your choice. The formula is extremely pigmented and smooth and are comparable to high end shadows but at a cheaper price. The palette I created is perfect for an everyday look, and I usually wear it with the Lancome shadow as a base. 

2) Urban Decay Naked Palette (original) - I don't know what I could say about this palette that hasn't been said already. It's pricey but so worth it, and it's the perfect palette for achieving any kind of look - day to night for those who love their neutral colors. The formula on these vary, depending on the shade you are using. I would say that the ones with larger grains of sparkle are harder to apply than the ones with finer shimmer. I personally don't touch the gray/black shades, but I've used every other color in the palette. The only downside to this palette is the lack of matte colors (I think there's only two that are truly matte - Naked and Buck). 

3) Lancome Color Design Single Shadow in Positive (Matte) - I searched for a long time for a perfect skin-tone matte shadow and I found this one for a steal at a beauty store at the outlets near. I use this nearly every time I apply eyeshadow, and it works perfectly as a neutralizing color to give you a clean base to apply color onto (getting rid of any visible veins or redness). 

Hope this review/post was helpful and useful!! Catch you all soon :)

XOXO, 
E ♥
