Because eyeshadow palettes are life right? No but really- eye palettes are my favorite makeup item to seek out season after season. Red lipsticks make me smile. A gorgeous highlight makes me swoon. But an eye palette make my world turn. Today I’m sharing 9 limited edition options you can get your hands on right now. With gifting & sales around, now is the time to make your list. I apologize in advance if I make yours longer…just kidding I have zero shame which it comes to makeup enabling.
There are few releases that excite me more than the VICE palettes! This is my 5th & I just bought it! Expect a review soon…but for now just know you need it! The gorgeous oil slick effect is unique & special. I love the double-ended brushes as well as the makeup case that is included. The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette includes 20 shades- all new & unique. You have varying finishes & a huge mirror to apply them in! If you love a mix of neutrals & colorful shades then this one is a great match.
Is there anything better than a bargain? That’s why palettes appeal to me so often- especially from pricier brands like NARS. This palette is super special because it actually contains multiple eyeshadows in their Dual Intensity range so you can try more shades at a better value. Inside you have 8 of the shades plus a wet/dry brush for application. The formula is meant to be used dry for more sheer color & wet for a dramatic color. The mirrored packaging is sleek & eye catching as well- looks lovely on a vanity.
If you’ve been around my site awhile you’ve likely seen this beauty before…I’m obsessed. This palette from Smashbox is a mega value & my go-to for travel because of the secure setup.

Inside you have 32 Photo Op Eye Shadows in varying finishes, 3 blushes, & 3 face shades for contouring/highlight. It is gorgeous & I can’t believe it is still available- BUY IT.
Looking for luxury that travels like a dream? This is the most gorgeous option I’ve found. & you’ll be seeing a review soon! The first item you see is the black pouch which also has an applicator & small cheek brush. Inside this palette you have 5 subtly iridescent neutral eyeshadows. In a compartment below you have 4 blush options in both matte & shimmer. Small, sleek, & lovely pigmentation. Get ready to fall in love.

This is one of those palettes that I think people will look over but shouldn’t. These shades blend so incredibly well & are all matte except for the blush. You’ve got to see my swatches & review here to get it- & my eyeshadow look! There’s something special here that just makes this slim palette a must for travel & quick makeup looks that you need to come together in a pinch. Perfect for every day!
This is the newest palette on my list & one I definitely will be picking up soon! This brand is synonymous with gorgeous pigmentation & from what I’ve seen this palette has that in spades. & the colors? I’ll just be over here fawning over it, thanks. There are 14 shades total in a wide range of shades perfect for unique looks as well as neutrals.
I’ve been obsessing over the MUFE eyeshadows ever since the huge launch that rocked the beauty world. So many shades & huge pans of color. I purchased this for an obvious reason- PRETTY. But really, these palettes are a bargain & an easy way to own a bunch of shades from the line. I love investing in palettes like this & the pigmentation here is insane.
& probably the most obvious item on this list right? I reviewed the collection with the palette here & then did this autumn eyeshadow look using the Stardust palette here…& I can’t stop loving it. This is also unique because it isn’t just the palette but also a deluxe primer, mascara, & loose glitter pigment. The eyeshadow palette contains 12 large shades in varying finishes- each one more gorgeous than the next. Don’t believe me? Check out my swatches here. Everyone I’ve seen who purchased this has been quite happy & I personally can’t stop reaching for it!
