Favourite Eyeshadows

Q. Favourite eyeshadows?
A. Well, while I was doing a Q&A for some upcoming posts, I thought I  might as well let you know my thoughts on eyeshadows. This is worth a post on its own. As you will see why.
Not beating around the bush, here are my favourites…by the way, can you believe it, it's the end of November!!
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre – in shades 86 Ebloui, 817 Apparence, 83 Illusoire and one day I shall get my hands on Mirifique;
NARS – at the moment I only own Coconut Grove but definitely be looking into getting the duo in Surabaya and Kuala Lumpur and singles in Mekong and Bali or perhaps the palette someday; I love how I can use Coconut Grove as an eyeliner, eyeshadow and my favourite eyebrow colour!
Gorgeous Cosmetics – colours such as Fudge, Sesame, Charity, Hedgehog;
StilaChampara, Kalahoo, Tolima, Golightly;
Illamasqua – i.e. Neutral Palette* of Stealth, Vintage, Obsidian and Wolf; Obsidian is a matte, longlasting, one of the two blackest black I own and ever tried! Second in place.
Inglot – favourites are the shades 423 and 399
Elizabeth Arden – an oldie but a goodie, this is one of my very first palette that ever purchased and still last till now and I love just using Beech Nut and Sand Dollar together!
Guerlain – The previous matte black Obsidian from Illamasqua is second to this unbeatable black shade from this Guerlain quad of the collection with the embossed bee print on the packaging. Gorgeous shades that speak for themselves.
And some others that you would have seen online would be:
Urban Decay Naked palette (No. 1)
Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette (LE 2010)
Becca Eye Tints – Baroque and Gilt would be amazing – but I don’t own any
Laura Mercier Lingerie Eye and Cheek Palette
So there you have it – my favourites of all time that I can always reach any time any occasion and depending on my mood, they do not fail me, ever. I do use Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath anything I put on my eyes though. I love all of these products.
Oh and if you want to ask me anything for upcoming Q&A posts – feel free to do so in the comment section below.
Item marked with * has been sent for review consideration – in this case it is only the Illamasqua Neutral Palette. I have purchased all of the other items myself. All opinions expressed are honest and personal.
