The Best: Neutral Palettes

The Best: Neutral Palette

Welcome to a brand new series on Zeal! 
This series is going to be called "The Best," each Tuesday for the next couple of weeks I am going to show you five "The Best" neutral palettes, mascara, eyeliner, and so on.
These are going to range between both high end and drugstore, so hopefully it will help you find the best of the best for your life and budget.

   This product is a no brainer when talking about neutral palettes. Urban Decay's Naked palettes are known for their versatile colors that allow hundreds of different looks.  You will get 10 shimmery and 2 matte highly pigmented shadows, included brush, and an Urban Decay Primer Potion. The only downside to this palette is that the shimmery shadows are very shimmery so if you don't like lots of shimmer I would stray away from this palette.  

    Lorac's Pro palette is a makeup kit staple for makeup artists.  The shadows are very creamy which makes for easy blending.  It contains 18 shadows and also an eye primer, making it a better value than the Naked.  Unlike the Naked Palette, these shadows have the perfect amount of glitter that give your lids an iridescent glow. 

    Ever since I got this palette I have been in love! The packaging for one is super cute and the colors are absolutely beautiful.  I grab this palette on almost a daily basis.  The only negatives I can say about this one is the shadows do create a lot of fallout, so tap your brush off before starting your look. You get 12 shadows and a brush (which unfortunately is useless).

    This is a much loved palette for it's perfect combination of both cool and warm shadows that will suit any skin color.  It also holds the cult favorite, Kitten.  Don't be surprised if you hit pan on this one the quickest. In this palette you get 10 shadows and Stila's famous waterproof smudge-able eyeliner. 

    Too Faced is most known for their great packaging.  Their boxed eyeshadow palettes come with 9 shadows and also three look how-to's to help beginners and inspire the pros.  The shadows are organized in each row for 3 different occasions: Day, Classic, and Fashion, so this palette will suit any girl's style.  The only downside is the shadows are really shimmery like the Naked.  

What are your favorite neutral palettes?
