One of the most treasured things in my collection are my single eyeshadows. There is just something unique about putting together your own custom palette, and selecting new shades to grow the collection. And is there anything more enjoyable to look at than a nicely curated magentic palette filled with single pan shadows? I don’t think so!
This is a part of my collection that I have grown a bit since last year. Last year I put the names of the shadows on each picure, but this post would take me days to do now if I did that (I am probalby not the most efficient picture editor either) so this time I will write all the shade names in the picture caption.
I love the Nabla single pans. Especially the matte formula. I currently have 18 shades that are all very beautiful. I would love to have some more but I rarely think about picking up some. They are a big more expensive than many other options out there, but the pans are also bigger!
This one brings back so many memories! When Makeupgeek came and changed the eyeshadow pan game. Before Makeupgeek everyone just used MAC, but they brought in a more affordable, but even better (in my opinion) option.
I also have a more colorful palette filled with Makeupgeek shadows. I hope I can manage to fill this palette during the rest of the year. It would be great having two full Makeupgeek palettes! I really should look into if they have some greens and blues in their collection that I could add. A few more colors in that colorfamily and I would be a happy camper.
MAC, the iconic MAC single shadows. Back in the time, when Youtube was a new thing, this was almost the only thing beauty youtubers used! I remember I felt so professinal when I picked up my first single shadow. So silly, but it was a big deal, and it’s soo many years ago. I am happy to have collected so many iconic shades. My goal is to one day have all these palletes filled. One Green/Yellow/Blue, one with sunset shades, and two with neutral eyeshadows.
I also have these Inglot eyeshadows. I do like them, but they are honestly not my favorite formula. I would like to fill up the palette, but I don’t really think I will grow my Inglot collection to something large anythime soon. I also could not be bothered writing down the shades names because they are a bitch to get out of those palettes, and they don’t have fun names anyways, just numbers.
Lethal Cosmtics is an indie brand with beautiful eyeshadows. This collection is much much smaller than what I want it to be, but I aim on growing it. The formula is just gorgeous on these and they have a bunch of interesting colors. I also really like that the magnetic palettes from the brand are small and compect and feels like very decent qiality and holds a great mirror. Highly recomment this brand if you want to test out more indie brands.
The biggest brand collection of single shadows I have are for sure from Colourpop. I blame it on their many releases, and BYOP offers. I am sure I will jump on those BYOP offers more times because it really allows you to build a while palette of single shadows for just a fraction of the original cost. I think when they have these sales it’s really as cheap as single shadows get, at least among thos with good quality.
I was not quite done with Colourpop, because this pretty bright palette is also Colourpop only. I need a new magnetic pan to fill now!
My Devinah collection is the smallest single pan brand collection I have with only 7 shades. That does not reflect the quality at all, because these shadows are really really nice. I aim to collect a lot more in the future so this is just the start.
And to finish up this post this is my Looxie eyeshadow collection. This also is a brand I want to collect a lot more from since it’s such a lovely formula. Especially their metallics and metallics 2 formula are so so beautiful. I think the next Looxie order is not far off!
What is your favorite brand to collect single eyeshadow pans from?
