Favorite eyeshadow palettes for fall

Favorite eyeshadow palettes for fall

While this is supposed to be Top 10 Tuesday for me it’s Top 7 Tuesday. I decided to just choose eyeshadow palettes I own and rely on rather than make a wishlist. I’m excited about my choices and recommend all of these highly. Some were received for review, others were bought, and all are loved and recommended.

my favorite fall palettes from Lancome, Tom Ford, butter London, Makeup Revolution, Buxom, Sleek, Make Up For Ever

my favorite fall palettes from Lancome, Tom Ford, butter London, Makeup Revolution, Buxom, Sleek, Make Up For Ever




This is the first Lancome palette I’ve bought in years. There are 16 shades in 4 finishes. They are set up almost like four individual palettes. The colors are Filigree (light gold shimmer), Choquette (peach matte), Parfait (light pink matte), Kitten Heel (gold copper shimmer) , Joie (golden brown shimmer), Voyage (muted purple matte), Sante (brown matte), Γ‰clair (purple metallic), Exhibition (orchid shimmer), Zip Me Up (deep purple shimmer), Volcano (silvery gray shimmer),Β  Clock Strikes 12 (gray metallic), Audacious (smokey brown shimmer), Couture (dark brown matte), It List (black matte), Nuit (deep charcoal metallic).Β  This palette was designed by Lisa Eldridge who was inspired by the streets of Paris. It’s the kind of palette that takes you from day to night, from running errands or going to work to a soiree. After seeing so much hype about the palette I instantly bought it during a Lancome GWP and I’m glad that I did.

I reviewed this much loved palette (here) so you can see fresh pictures of it. This contains a light gold, a light rose gold, a medium taupe and a chocolate brown. It’s my one and only TF palette and if they were all like this without glitter but lots of sheen, I’d own them all.

butter LONDON now has eyeshadows called Shadow Clutches and I’m loving it. There are two ShadowClutch palettes – Natural Charm and Pretty Proper.Β  The shades in Natural Charm are Linen (Matte Vanilla), Quartz (Warm Beige Sheen), Camo (Dark Khaki Sheen), Camel (Matte Nude), Citrine (Coral Sheen), Leather (Matte Chocolate Brown. These are primer infused and the pigments are great. A full review is on the way.


Makeup Revolution in Mermaids Forever

Makeup Revolution in Mermaids Forever

This beautiful Ulta exclusive has 32 shades that will satisfy the needs of everyone. I know it’s early for Christmas presents but this would be a delight for any makeup lover to find in a pile of gifts. It’s affordable enough that you can buy it for gifts and one for yourself. While the theme is Mermaids with its beautiful blues, teals, and greens you’ll also find a bevy of neutrals. Makeup Revolution is a UK brand that only came to the US at Ulta stores in the summer. No swatches yet of this but they’ll be coming.

After using a buxom Customizable Palette and finding the pigmentation to be utterly amazing, I just had to put together one in the neutral family. Be sure you buy this in one bundle since separately the eyeshadows ($12 each) and empty palette would be $112. The colors in my palette are Champagne Buzz (shimmering pearl), Haute Couture (metallic java), Jetsetter (matte greige), Satin Seduction (Bisque Luster), Mix & Mingle (matte vanilla), Style Icon (Mettalic Taupe). I think you’ll have better luck finding these at Sephora since they are selling like hotcakes online.


Sleek Makeup Storm Palette

Sleek MakeUP Storm Palette

Sleek is another brand from the UK and is one of the most coveted brands from there. There are a lot of Sleek MakeUP iDivine palettes and I was lucky to get Storm which was one I’ve been eager to try. The shades are Sand Storm (golden brown, Snow Storm (lighter gold), Calm Before the Storm (matte beige, Thunder Storm (brassy gold), Perfect Storm (rose gold), Firestorm (bronze), Dust Storm (deeper bronze), Gathering Storm (dark pewter), Storm Cloud (teal pewter), Electric Storm (shimmery navy), Eye of the Storm (matte light brown), Blackout (matte black). What I love about this palette is that there’s a mix of matte and satin shades. Full review will follow.


Make Up For Ever 9 Shadow Artist Palette volume 1

Make Up For Ever 9 Shadow Artist Palette volume 1

Make Up For Ever’s 9 Shadow Artist Palette is the oldest one in this group. Did I need another neutral palette? Of course not and at first I was a little sorry I bought it. But once I started using it I realized there were some shades that I really liked. These shades are available individually but putting 9 in a palette makes it a better buy. The shades are (going down the rows) I-528 Pearl, S-556 Taupe Gray, S-102 Onyx, I-514 Pink Ivory, D-562 Taupe Platinum, I-544 Pink Granite, ME-512 Golden Beige, ME-644 Iced Brown, D-652 Celestial Earth so it runs the gamut of finishes. I get the most use out of Pearl, Pink Ivory, Pink Granite, Golden Beige and Iced Brown. The two shades marked D (diamond) are too glittery for me) and I don’t line with black so Onyx is pristine. But 6 out of this palette makes this a buy I no longer regret.

Do you own any of these? What’s your fave? — Marcia

  1. I love all of your choices! That Tom Ford palette and the new Lancome are on my wishlist. I also need to try the Makeup Revolution, now that ULTA carries them. So much too choose from! <3

  2. I love all of your choices, Marcia! Of course I knew that TF Nude Dip was going to make the cut from the moment that I saw your post title! There are so many beauties here, I am getting tremendous vicarious pleasure just feasting my eyes on this post!

  3. Such pretty palettes! I like that one from Butter London.

  4. @Lola, how could I leave Tom Ford out? Your influence with this brand runs deep.

  5. @Amber, you won’t be sorry buying either the TF or the Lancome.

  6. Can I have all of them, please? πŸ™‚

  7. Love this roundup! Looks like I need to add some things to my shopping list, haha. I will never have enough palettes…..never.

  8. Oh good lord that Tom Ford palette is just gorgeous! So many pretty colors to look at in the rest too!

  9. I bought the Lancome palette as well and then I saw reviews that weren’t too positive when my palette was on the way. I expected to be disappointed but I actually like the palette. The shades are so pretty and work well enough for me. Glad to find someone else who likes the palette!

  10. @Renu, I didn’t see reviews until after I had the palette and I’m glad I didn’t. It’s not my favorite palette but I like it even though the pigmentation isn’t the best I’ve tried.

  11. @Kat and Jamie – I can never have enough palettes. I’ll be an old lady in a nursing home surrounded by eyeshadow palettes instead of cats.

  12. I love the colours that you’ve put together in the buxum palette, the shades are just up my street for an every day neutral eye. so gorgeous! xxx

  13. Great roundup. Both Lancome & Tom Ford palettes *swoon*. Wehaven’t had much summer in UK this year, which makes it even harder for me to think we’re in to Autumn nearly πŸ™ But I do love autumn makeup πŸ™‚


  14. Every time I go to Sephora I swear I’m going to pick up that MUFE palette. Need to just do it–so pretty!

  15. I’ve been on the prowl for a new fall palette. Perfect timing… thanks for sharing!

  16. OMG, all your palettes would be perfect for me. I like how a few of them have a neutral but green shade amongst the offerings like the butterLONDON Natural Charm with Camo. I hadn’t planned on buying the Lancome palette, but I hadn’t seen it up close, and now knowing that it’s a Lisa Eldridge palette, I’m tempted!

  17. OMGeeeee… There are so many goodies that I want to play with here! This is great becuase I was scrolling through Sephora and didn’t know which palette I needed. Well, here I just found a few. Great picks!!

  18. Beautiful palettes! I’ll take one of each! πŸ˜€

  19. I think I might have to buy that Tom Ford palette – gorgeous!
