It seems as though a slew of new eyeshadow palettes are popping up daily, each with lustworthy packaging, trendy hues and luxurious textures (some of them, even scented). But I want to bring some attention back to basics and give a shoutout to the new Sephora PRO Palettes ($68 each), which forgo the bells and whistles to deliver exactly what you want—quality, quantity and value.
There are three palettes—Warm, Cool and Editorial—each featuring 28 richly-pigmented shades in a variety of textures. The first two are filled with neutral shades in their respective undertones while the Editorial palette is filled with vibrant, artistic colours.
Each palette is quite large, but that’s not because of excess packaging—they have a minimalistic design focusing only on the eyeshadows within and extra large interior mirror. The generous pan sizes make up the majority of the palette, but the slim design keeps it practical and travel-friendly (not to mention a great value at less than $2.50 per shadow).
The Cool Palette has definitely become my favourite out of the three, just because I have been leaning more towards greys and mauves recently, but the Warm Palette is totally on trend for Fall with its array of burnt oranges, brick reds and golden browns. For those who can’t ever get enough colour, the Editorial Palette is a sure winner with it’s bold hues and metallic textures.
Now for the swatches (there’s lots of ’em)!

If you’re a budding makeup artist or just want a robust collection, I would encourage you to invest in these three (or at least the two neutral palettes). I did the makeup for a bridal party this past weekend and these three palettes were fantastic to work with. I was impressed time and time again with the beautiful shades, buttery textures and amazing colour payoff.
