My Favorite Eyeshadows of 2010

To my surprise, I didn't list any of my high-end eyeshadows aside from the Naked palette. These are eye products that I really enjoyed and reached for most often in 2010. I'm pretty upset at myself that I still didn't do reviews on the NYX eyeshadows. Anyways, for the record, I don't really buy high-end eyeshadows unless there is something unique about the color or quality that I cannot find as a drugstore dupe. High-end eyeshadows are too expensive and many of their colors can be duped so it doesn't make any sense for me to pay more for something similar I can get for less.

1. ELF eyebrow kit (dark). Ok this is not an eyeshadow but I must include it as a favorite somewhere on my blog. I must admit the tinted gel is probably the only thing I like from this kit. The powder have a bit of a red undertone so I don't even use it. The brush would have worked better if it was slightly thicker and stiffer. Anyways, I still love this and it's my favorite and I use it all the time. I prefer using a tinted gel to fill in my eyebrows. I feel I have more control and it looks more natural vs a pencil. Best eyebrow product with best price too so even if you end up liking just the gel side like me, you won't feel bad about how much you paid for it.
2. NYX Iced Mocha. These NYX single eyeshadows have a great color pay off and feel creamy. This shade is beautiful for a neutral look. Color is shimmery taupe/brown with a bronzy sheen.
3. NYX Cork. This is a bronzy gold shimmery eyeshadow. I love it and for the price, you won't be sorry. Gorgeous for neutral looks.
4. Femme Couture Baked Eye Color - Classic Khaki. The pigmentation and color is just awesome. Price is decent but best get it when it's on sale. This is only available at Sally Beauty supply as far as I know.
5. Wet N Wild Vanity. What can I say, these are the best drugstore eyeshadows out there. This is a great palette for neutral makeup looks.
6. Wet N Wild Lust. My favorite eyeshadow palette from WNW. Every color in this palette is rich, pigmented, and smooth and I love purples.
7. Maybelline Bronze Glitz. I don't know what the heck they did to this palette but the color and pigmentation is just awesome. Not all of their eyeshadows are great but this particular one is definitely a hit.

LOL, call me crazy but I just can't get enough of these NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palettes. I must admit not all the colors within a palette are great but most of them are pretty good and pigmented. I love how there is so many colors and combination and these are usually my first choice when I'm traveling or going out of town because they are small, compact, and lightweight. I cut out the color display on the box and taped it to the palette so that I know which colors are inside without having to open the palette since I have so many of them. I wished they printed it on the case so I wouldn't have to do that :D. I will review all of these NYX palette eventually. I just purchased a couple more of their new ones too.

8. For Eye Color Brown. In this palette, we got brown, taupe, lilac, green, light gold, peach, and a pearly pinkish white.
9. Versus. In this palette, we got mostly purples and browns.
10. Secret World. In this palette, we got mostly greens and neutrals.
11. Strike a Pose. This palette has got a bit of everything..brown, gold, peach, green, white, and black.
12. Champagne & Caviar. This is a great everyday neutral palette.

13. Urban Decay Naked Palette. This is more expensive but worth every penny I paid. Still being sold out and everytime I go to Ulta or Sephora, I don't see it on the shelf. Best neutral palette I own and I'm sure it's also a favorite among many.

Finding any of your favorites in my favorites?


  1. definitely love a lot of the ones you picked! the elf brow kit sounds nice - they make your brows look perfect. bronze glitz is one of the eyeshadow trios thats on that super clearance i posted about, just in case you wanted to pick up a back up. love your layout :)

  2. awwww i wish i could get the Naked palette!!!!!

  3. Thanks Lauren, I won't need a back up. I don't think I'll ever finish any of my eyeshadows, lol. I hardly use them during the week cause I don't wake up early enough to do my makeup.

  4. Otworzyła salon kosmetyczny i myślę o tym gdzie kupić fotele do pedicure używane, frezarka z pochłaniaczem pyłu i frezarka do pięt lidl. Gdzie najlepiej szukać takich sprzętów? Czy możecie polecić jakąś hurtownie? Czy warto zamawiać przez Internet? Wybrałam sklep, Salon w Warszawie, zapraszam wszystkich. Rabaty dla klientów z bloga)
