Hello!! Anyone who reads my blog knows that I'm a sucker for neutral palettes. I can't get enough of them. I wear neutral eye looks everyday, and rarely branch out into more colorful things.
I'm going to share my top 5 favorite neutral palettes with you all!
Here we have the (original) Naked Palette by Urban Decay, Lorac Pro Palette, the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette, the Sauce Box Creme de la Creme Palette, and the Urban Decay Naked Basics.
This was my first ever big makeup purchase so this will probably always be my all time favorite. The original Naked Palette is my favorite out of the 3. I almost included the naked 3 in this post instead of the Smashbox one, but I though including 3 nakeds was a little excessive lol!
The Lorac Pro is probably my second favorite palette. This one is so versatile because there is super light colors, and some darker shades as well. The darker shades are great because they pair so well with the light ones to created a smoked out neutral look. And plus this has half matte shades!
The Urban Decay Naked Basics is defiently my most used palette. I use this baby every single day, literally lol. These shades are all matte, except for the first one has very faint shimmer. These colors are all gorgeous. The first three make for good lid or highlight colors, and the two browns are great crease and transition shades. The black can be used for eyeliner or to smoke out the look. This palette is just perfect.
If anyone hasn't heard of or tried Sauce Box's eyeshadows, I really recommend and suggest you check them out!! The shadows are so buttery it's amazing. Even more so than Urban Decay's. These are all so pigmented and gorgeous! The black shade is the best black shadow I've ever used, it blends so nice and has very little fall out.
I just recently got this Smashbox Full Exposure Palette but it quicky became a favorite. I mentioned that I almost picked the naked 3 instead of this one, because I would say that they are tied for one of my favorites! This one is great because they're are both cool and warm tones shadows. This doesn't have the best pigmentation on some of the shadows but I still like this palette!
What are your favorite neutral palettes? Let me know in the comments!!
I totally need to try Sauce Box. The Too Faced Neutral By Night is what I am using but Lorac Pro is still on my list!ReplyDelete

Awesome post Ashley! Great selections. I really like my Naked and Lorac Pro palettes! I want to get the Naked Basics palette. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Thanks Pilar! You would love the naked basics palette! It's amazingDelete
I've been wanting to try sauce box for some time now, that palette looks like a great ones start with! Especially of they're better than UD :) I've heard other people say that black shadow is the best black shadow out there too!ReplyDelete
They have some colorful palettes that you would love!! Defiently try them out :)Delete
Never even heard of Saucebox before, but I love how they have that mirror cutout detail. I was on and off about purchasing the Lorac Pro since I seriously don't need any more palettes, but I a lot of people have been recommending it over the Naked 1 and 2. Knowing me I'll probably end up with both the Lorac and Naked 3, lol.ReplyDelete

The Lorac pro is amazing! It has so many colors so you can do a lot with it!Delete
I really wanna try the Lorac pro. But I don't know if I should go for Lorac Pro or Lorac pro to go. Any ideas? :s xReplyDelete
The Lorac pro has a lot more eye colors and looks you can create. But the colors in the pro to go are beautiful too and it's awesome that it comes with the blushes. I wanted it for a long time but then I realized that I probably wouldn't use the blushes in it very often. It's good for travel but I don't travel often! I hope that helped! If they made that palette with just those eye shadows id probably get it.Delete
