My Make Up Collection | Eyeshadow Trios, Quads and Palettes

A while ago I started a new series here on Born to Buy, My Make Up Collection. I decided that I'd share a part of my make up collection with you each week until, well, you've seen it all. This series is not about reviewing products because that would take forever but, if I've receieved a product I'll be sure to link it!

I won't be swatching these palettes because there's quite a few of them. If you want to see a review or swatches of the post, comment below. I'd be happy to do it for you all!

I'm sure this goes without saying but please don't take this series of posts as bragging. That is not my intention at all. 

If you want to see what's in my MAC palette and Z-Palette, click here. Those shadows were listed in my Individual and Eyeshadow Duos post.

The Balm Meet Matt(e) | Urban Decay Naked Palette | Ulta3 Greetings from Paradise | Benefit Brows A-Go-Go | The Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette 

These palettes are some of the most used in my make up collection. If you read my review of the Urban Decay Naked palette you'll know I absolutely love it! It's definitely worth all the hype. Since receiving my The Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette in a beauty swap in March I've used it almost everyday. It has some absolutely beautiful eyeshadows in it and I would definitely recommend it. I also use my Benefit Brows A-Go-Go kit almost everyday. The wax and light brow powder are really great. 
Bobbi Brown Mini Brights Palette | Inglot Freedom Palette with #21, #329, #395 and #402 | Esteé Lauder Pure Colour Five Colour Eyeshadow Palette in #05 Desert Heat

I don't get much use out of the Bobbi Brown Mini Brights Palette as the colours aren't ones I gravitate towards. I love having it in my collection though because I love the packaging. The Inglot shadows are absolutely beautiful and, as you can see, I've made quite a dent in the highlight colour! I haven't had the opportunity to try the Esteé Lauder palette yet as it's relatively new to my collection, however I'm sure I won't be disappointed!
The Body Shop Shimmer Cube #20 Blue/Grey* | Chi Chi Don't Pimp My Style Eye Palette | Stila Light Up The World Colour Trend Palette | Mirenesse Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadows in #2 Keshi Pearls
Maybelline Eye Studio Silk Eyeshadow Quad in Pink Persuasion | Essence Quattro Eyeshadow in #11 Sea My Eyes* | Essence Ready for Boarding Eyeshadow Palette in #01 Beauty on Tour* | Revlon CustomEyes in #010 Sweet Innocence
BYS Metallics 8 Palette in Browns | BYS Horizontal 5 Piece Palette in #5 Black Steel | BYS Diamond Shadow 8 Palette in Party 'Til Sunrise 

I've only reviewed a couple of products featured above but, as I said, I've added links to those I had. If you would like to see a review of a product, please comment below. I'd be happy to add it to my list of products to review! 

Have you tried any of these eyeshadow palettes? What did you think of them? I think palettes are such great value so let me know if there's any you'd recommend! 

* - Indicates products that were provided for review or as a PR sample. These products have remained in my collection, meaning that I have not yet posted about them, I genuinely like them or both. 

Always look your best,

  1. I really wish I bought the balm jovi palette when it was out! :(


    1. Oh, was it a limited edition product? I didn't realise! I was going to review it but now I'm not sure if I should. xx

  2. I have the balm jovi & I really love it :)

    1. It's a beautiful, beautiful palette. I love it. xx

  3. I have the balm jovi and the naked palette too :)

    1. They're both beautiful palettes. Do you have the Naked2? I'd love to pick that up, as well as the Naked Basics palette! xx

  4. so many palettes! jealous of the naked!

    1. Ahaha, Erin! There's more than I thought but, then again, still not a whole lot. It's hard to explain. You should pick up the Naked palette. It's amazing. xx

  5. Loving this series Sophie! :)

    1. Thanks so much, Krystal! I haven't received a whole lot of feedback throughout the series so it's really nice to hear. Looking forward to sharing my lip product collection with you all! xx

  6. Lovely collection! I really think I need to do this as well, I'd love to show off my collection (not in a bragging way, just because I love seeing other people's collections so I can imagine there are people out there like me too!)

    1. Thanks! There's not as many as I thought but I absolutely LOVE the ones I use a lot. I totally understand what you mean about wanting to share without looking like it's bragging. I love seeing other people's collections which is exactly why I created this series! I really hope you do it, Jasmine. I'd love to see your make up collection. xx
