Shopping for the best eyeshadow palettes in the market is difficult, especially for beginners. You can get lost in a particular brand’s pretty colours, shades, and shimmer. If you’re not sure of how you’ll wear the colours of the eyeshadow, you might end up not using the product at all.


That is a huge waste of money, right? 


Hence, we feature the five (5) eyeshadow palettes that we swear by. Today’s list is guaranteed beneficial to both makeup beginners and junkies who’d like to experiment with their eye makeup. All palettes have an interesting set of colours which will definitely wake the inner goddess in you.


Let’s start!


Absolute New York Eyeshadow ICON Palette in Twilight


We fell in love with the Twilight ICON eyeshadow palette the moment it came out in 2016. It is the fusion of its sisters named Exposed (warm neutrals) and Smoked (smokey shades). All 12 sultry shadows come in a sleek container, complete with a large mirror and a dual-ended eyeshadow brush.


With the smart combination of soft neutrals and jewel-like metallic shades, you can definitely wear this eyeshadow from sun up to sundown. Look at it. It is beauty and artistry in a palette:



It can do both stunning neutral, bright, and smokey eyeshadow looks. Create a spectrum of stunning eye makeup and feel free to experiment with the colours!

A flawless finish without the worries of a smudged look after a long day.

Urban Decay Naked in Smoky


As the name of the palette suggests, this one is one of the best eyeshadow palettes for a woman who loves her smokey eye makeup. The palette is a collection of UD’s sultry shadows in warm bronzes, smokey greys, rich browns, gorgeous taupes, and deep black.


Just look at this beauty:



With just one look, you already know how flexible these colours are. Wear the last three colours in the office. Then, retouch your eye makeup with the shimmer shadows before getting late night drinks. At the end of the day, NAKED in Smokey is packed with the shades that a power woman needs from day to night. It comes in a disaster-proof magnetic case with a huge mirror and a high-performance brush.

TOO FACED Love Palette



If you like an eye makeup which makes you look cute and lovable, try the Love Palette from Too Faced Cosmetics. It contains 15 silky shadows in shimmery, pearly, and matte finishes. But the thing that we love the most about this palette is that you can effortlessly blend the colours together!



The Love Palette is a sturdy black compact with a postcard or love letter face plate. When opening, it will welcome you with an iconic heart-shaped shadow carved in three shades which look really classy. We really felt the love in this palette, Too Faced.

Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick


Let’s try something different. If you don’t want to splurge on eyeshadows because you like an eye makeup that’s barely visible, the Bling Bling Eye Shadow from Etude House is the product for you. Koreans (and a lot of Singaporeans) admire the “no makeup” look and invests in products which help them achieve it. 





Each shade has a slight shimmer which livens up your dull eyes. The creamy texture of the product allows easy application, perfect for beginners and busy career women. Put on eye primer to make the colours to pop up even more. Another great thing about these eyeshadow products is the packaging. It comes in portable tubes which fit perfectly in your makeup bag. Unlike carrying an entire palette, stick shadows allow you carry the shades that you always use.


Each tube of Bling Bling Eye stick shadows retail for SGD8.40 in Etude House.
