The Perfect Party Eye Palette

The Christmas Party season is now on it's way where we all get dressed up and made up for the occasion, I love a good glitzy eye palette for the party season to go with my glitter dress or black jumpsuit. Sometimes we spend all our money on some nice new outfits and shoes to go out in and leave little money left for make up. Drugstore eye palettes are now widely available and some of them are just as good as the high end brands.

I picked up Maybelline The Rock Nudes palette from boots for £9.99 but technically got it free as they had a 3 for 2 offer on, this is definitely one of the perfect party eye palettes as it consists of 6 matte shades and 6 glitter shades. There are some neutral colours in there as transition shades and defining the crease and then some darker shades for that smokey eye look and not to mention the beautiful glitter shades which are super pigmented.

The lighter shades definitely need applied a few times to show up but the darker shades and glitter are super pigmented, they are really easy to blend out and apply but I would definitely use an eye primer to ensure they stay put all night long as they do tend to fade within a few hours if no primer is used which is to be expected from drugstore palettes.

The top row of the palette consists of a matte pale creamy white shade, a blue silver shimmer, a lilac shimmer, deep matte brown, midnight blue shimmer, black shimmer

The bottom row has a matte cream base, a matte pink skintone shade, deep purple with slight shimmer, gold shimmer, deep matte purple, matte black

This palette is definitely cost effective and very versatile with the amount of looks you could do with it, my favourite shade has to be the gold shimmer.

Let me know in the comments below what your favourite shade is?

  1. These are perfect, what I like to call, "Christmas Party" shades! I do love the palette, but tend not to wear a lot of cooler tones. If I did though, I'd definitely give it more of a look! The swatches look great!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment. I love this palette and will definitely be using it throughout this month a lot x

  2. I rarely ever go for smokey dark eyeshadows, definitely wanna try this one since I haven't been able to try out any of the maybelline eye palettes
