Ere Perez Chamomille eyeshadow palette “lovely” (vegan)
Ever since their rebrand, Ere Perez came up with stellar new launches and the palette is one of them. Initially, it was not ‘love at first swatches’ but once applied on my eyes, I became a fan. Lovely contains 6 dainty and neutral shades (3 matte and 3 shimmers). They do not pack a lot of pigment at first, but you can relatively build up the intensity. What I love is how they blend like a dream. It looks so fresh and natural and you have no fallout. I really enjoyed how soft, easy-breathy and delicate my eye makeup was. This is a great daily palette. The use of chamomile is clever as it is a soothing ingredient, thus suitable for sensitive eyes.

Studio78 Paris “prête pour la fête” palette (vegan)*
A mixture of shimmers and mattes with a stunning array of shades. What I love about this palette is that you can easily transition from a day-to-night makeup look with the color range. You can wear the neutral colors during the day and add a pop of metallic green, blue or copper. The shadows are soft and blendable, the pigmentation is good, you don’t need to pick up a lot of product and the effect is neat. They are also amongst the most long-lasting eyeshadows I’ve worn, so the palette is definitely party-approved.

PHB ethical makeup professional palette (vegan)
A++ for pigmentation, I cannot praise them enough. They pack a punch, color-wise. I did a lengthy review (here) and I highly recommend giving PHB makeup a try. There’s a little bit of fallout occurring when picking up the product, but this is the palette that enables you to get a vibrant and funky eye makeup look.

Inika day to night eyeshadow palette* (vegan)
I just realized that I have three Australian brands featured here. My last pick is the Inika day to night palette which comprises a beautiful range of earthy hues, mixing mauves, browns, and oranges. I absolutely love every color in this palette, I think they did a great job picking shades one can actually wear, be it individually or by doing some color combos. The 7 shades are pigmented, long lasting with limited creasing. They have a silky feel upon application and blend seamlessly. All the colors are wearable and you can create a variety of looks. The finish is rather matte which will appeal to people who may not enjoy shimmers as much as I do hehe.
