Best makeup eyeshadow palette
March 11, 2019

Eyeshadow dates back to ancient Egypt, but for awhile there in the ‘90s, it became a bit of an afterthought, back when people would have a few different (and mostly similar) colors they’d use over and over again. It was like wearing the same couple outfits day after day — boring and stifling! Now, the best makeup eyeshadow palettes once again have a huge 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.

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.

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.
