Wow! It’s RAINING palettes again. I haven’t felt like I’ve been this buried under eyeshadow palettes in a year or so. It’s going to take me sometime to prioritize, test, and write-up reviews for these palettes (along with some I’ve shown swatches for earlier this week), but I have swatches for you of these palettes… and more to photograph tomorrow! 👀

* Tom Ford quad provided as a sample; the other four palettes featured here were purchased by me.

I can see picking up Baby Glam (I’ve long considered the full palette, but I’m not using enough eyeshadow these days).
Naked Cyber has some pretty shades but it seems very spring-like to me.

I love that green in the ND Metropolis palette but I have at least 4 dupes (I stopped counting at 4) and the crazy thing is that I rarely wear green shadow. That Baby Glam palette is really cute and practical but because of the stupid numbering system, I had to click on all three shades to confirm that I already own them.

Other than the ND Metropolis Mini, I’m not impressed with the new stuff shown above. But then I realize that I have many wonderful rich green eyeshadows, so I don’t even know about that one.

I have been waiting to see the Cyber palette and like the look of the swatches. I haven’t been interested in anything Urban Decay in a long time. I just like the looks of the palette but don’t know about purchasing. I don’t love Charlotte Tilbury’s shadow formula, Tom Ford is freakin’ expensive for what you get and so UD would be the only one I would seriously consider purchasing and only after seeing in person.

I’m having a hard time figuring out if the shades in ND Baby Glam dupe the shades in ND Mini Glam. The five shades in Mini Glam are identified by shade names, but the Baby Glam shades are identified by a letter and a number. Does anyone know if they’re dupes?

Sadly none of the above are really for me – too many pinks and caramel brown shades. I do own the full version of Glam, so that counts that one out. I like Metropolis mini – but not the mattes, plus I think I have that green shade already.

I think it’s just based of the few “duocheome” shades they have in the palette but all the reviews I’ve seen so far have called it like everyday wearable duochromes or duochromes for beginners essentially XD

I LOVE these collected swatch posts. They’re so handy as I usually just want to see what the colors of any given cosmetic item actually are (we all know brand promo photos are useless). The Metropolis palette caught my eye, as all I want from the big one are the greeny-teal and gold shades…but you know what? This little guy isn’t very interesting and I’ve got the stand-alone Gold palette so easy pass on that. I’ll spend my money on some of those best seller sets many brands are doing this year.
