top winter eyeshadows


Hello! In just a few days, Spring will be here and before you know it, there will be more sunny days and lots of colorful blooms. Even though we are at a trying time nowadays, I hope for new seasons and new beginnings. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, please stay safe, stay healthy, stay strong, and be well. This too shall pass. So, before we end this season, I would like to share with you some of my top picks in eyeshadow palettes. These are the ones I’ve been enjoying since last Fall and also this Winter. These picks are not comprehensive since there are other palettes I also love but I prefer to feature them separately in my succeeding reviews. 


In this collection, you will find a combination of high-end eyeshadow palettes, along with some drugstore palettes as well.


Take a look.


Dior BACKSTAGE Eyeshadow Palette in Amber Neutrals review


The Dior BACKSTAGE Eyeshadow Palette in Amber Neutrals is one of my top picks for this season’s eyeshadow look. I love how beautiful all the shades look and they are all saturated with very good pigments. Even the whole packaging of this eyeshadow is TDF and the type you would reluctantly use because it’s just so pretty. The shades in this palette are on the very warm coppery and bronzey side plus with an intense shade of matte red which is so perfect for Fall-Winter. There is also another Backstage Eyeshadow Palette released recently by Dior, and it’s the Rosewood Neutrals which looks so ethereal and so intriguing. I will investigate that palette soon.

chanel multi effect quadra eyeshadow

For gorgeous well-curated matte eyeshadows, you can’t go wrong with the Chanel Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadows in Candeur et Expérience, Clair Obscur, and Blurry Mauve. These are my go-tos for a quick, easy to apply, and wearable matte look. I love how these compacts complement my eye color and they look so natural and so pigmented as well. Also, these are easy to travel. See the swatch of Clair Obscur here, and the Blurry Mauve here. Also, if you haven’t seen the Spring-Summer releases of Chanel Beauty, see some of them here.

Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette in honeymoon, Pat McGrath Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Seduction

Pat McGrath Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Seduction – This palette is still the mothership and the queen of all my eyeshadow palettes. There is a lot of love and attention to details in PMG’s Mothership eyeshadows, and this Bronze Seduction palette is still, in my opinion, the best eyeshadow palette PMG has ever created. This palette is the ultimate Fall-Winter eye makeup look vibe, and its packaging is so well-done. See the swatch here.




Lately, Tom Ford has released more shades of its iconic Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette and some of them are on my wishlist. However, out of all the TF Eye Color Quads, the Honeymoon quad is probably the prettiest, if not one of them. I feel like you can wear all of its shades at any season, but I can definitely see myself constantly reaching out for it during Fall-Winter. Take note that the bottom right shade may look purplish online or in some photos, but in reality, it actually looks more brown.

e.l.f. mad for matte eyeshadow nude mood review


There are two e.l.f eyeshadows I’m loving this season and it’s the Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette in Sunset and the Mad for Matte Eyeshadow in Nude Mood. These affordable eyeshadows are so pigmented, buttery soft, and they have very very minimal fallouts. I can apply them without a lid primer and they still stay put throughout the day. I love that they don’t irritate my lids and the shades are reminiscent of Urban Decay’s Naked Heat and the original Naked palette.


Nyx Love Lust Disco Shadow Palette in Rosé And Play review


Last but not the least is the very beautiful Nyx Love Lust Disco Shadow Palette in Rosé And Play. This palette is so stunning with its rose-gold pinkish tones that are not only perfect for Fall and Winter but are also perfect as transitional eyeshadow shades for this coming Spring and Summer. The compact itself looks very delightful, and each shade looks fun and unique. Unfortunately, Nyx discontinued this palette, but you can still find the golden version of this palette at Macy’s
