Best of 2017
As 2017 comes to a close, it’s time to reflect back on the products I’ve reviewed during the past year and share with you my personal favorites. I feel comfortable saying that 2017 saw more palettes and sets and kits than I ever recall seeing before. To that end, you’d think it would have been a real challenge to narrow down a list of favorite eyeshadow palettes, but it wasn’t. Sure, there were plenty of decent to good palettes released, but there weren’t that many top notch palettes (in my opinion, of course) when all was rated and reviewed!
I’m so glad ColourPop Eyeshadow Palettes are now part of their regular releases–great value, good to great quality–while Natasha Denona, Viseart, and Kat Von D continued to release some strong palettes that made my list for the year. A pleasant surprise were Huda Beauty’s new 9-pan palettes–two of the four are on this list–and Urban Decay’s Heavy Metals Palette. You can check out my full list of favorites below 🙂
