Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Every time I use Urban Decay eye shadow I think, why do I ever stray? I love it. Soft and creamy, great color payoff and no fallout!

 

However, I've recently seen other BT posters singing the praises of different types eye shadow, so I'm curious!

 

What is your vote for best overall eye shadow (by brand)?

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I'll admit, I am not brand loyal.  I love a lot of different products.  I have been enjoying the Bare Minerals READY shadows lately, though. 

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I love Urban Decay!  They have more colors than I can imagine...  I have a whole huge make up bag dedicated to all my UD eye shadows.  But I've been on a Nars bender lately and have been buying a lot of their shimmer shadows because even though I love UD, their glittery eye shadows usually end up on my cheeks. 

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Definitely agree with you on UD being the best eyeshadow!  Their formula and colors are my favorite.  I never have fall out with their shadows either.  I also own way too many of their palettes and will probably buy a lot more.  I've been a fan of UD for over 10 years now.  Wow I'm old.  Lol.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Yeah I'm with nebel on not being very loyal but I do have a favorite type of shadow. The soft creamy but very pigmented ones always get me. Urban decay make alot of great ones, so does Bare Minerals with their ready shadows. Also Mac has a finish called Veluxe Pearl that is just to dye for when they make gorgeous colors in that formula

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Hi!  I think Urban Decay shadows are great, but I think Stila's eyeshadows are even more pigmented than some of the Urban Decay shadows.  I have the single shadows in Kitten and Chinois, and there is absolutely no fallout, the texture is really smooth, and the pigmentation is great.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I like the bare minerals ready shadows even more than urban decay (formula wise) but urban decay wins for formula + massive color selection + comes in various finishes. I also love the mac shadows (the little single pots only). I rarely stray from these 3 brands when I'm shopping for powder shadows because I know that I wont be disappointed. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Ah yes, I used to own sooo many mac shadows! Smiley Happy

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I agree with sephoramusthave! If you love Urban Decay - check out bareMinerals. I highly recommend "The Vision" duo. They have the same buttery feel... I might actually like them more... you will not be disappointed! I recently tried out a too faced palette, and compared to these two, it disappointed. So hard to pick up a decent amount of product on a brush... I have to use my fingers. I haven't checked out any of their full palettes but I agree Stila eye shadows have a nice forumulation as well.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Geez girls I really do need to check out Bare Minerals!

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Majority of my eyeshadows are from UD. Mainly because they're in palettes and have such gorgeous pigmented colors. But next to UD, I really love Inglot eyeshadows. 

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

My vote is UD!  I can't stop buying palettes, and I love the texture and range of colors.  (Though they are lacking a spring green!)

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I do like UD. I also love Inglot eye shadows. Very pigmented and a wide variety of colors. I just ordered my 2nd Freedom palette.. just waiting for it to arrive! eee I love ordering new makeup! I think my top eyeshadows are Inglot, UD and MAC (though these are a hit and miss).

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I've been dying to try Inglot eye shadows. I really want to go to a store that carries them, though, and there are none in my state. Smiley Sad

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Urban Decay is so lovely in the package but my sensitive eyes simply do not like it. 

 

My favorite eyeshadow is Stila. I just love the consistency. Stila shadows go on so smoothly that I can even skip primer with most of the shades.

 

I also really love Nars eyeshadow. The color selection is incredible. I feel like every single shade is classy and simply screams quality. I also love that Nars has so, so many matte shades.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I love NARS... how have I never tried their eye shadow??!!

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Urban Decay by far is my favorite- I own so many shadows from this brand!

 

My next few favorites would be Benefit's Cream Eyeshadows, Benefit's old formula Velvet Eyeshadows (serious crime they stopped making these), and Stila's Eyeshadows.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I have far too many eye shadows, but none are from Urban Decay.  I really love the Stila shadows.  The 3 pan sets they had last year are my favorites (two have Kitten in them) and I have two larger palettes.

 

After that, I'd say I love the consistency of Lorac shadows.  They blend so easily.

 

I picked up some Tarte palettes and they seem nice, though probably 3rd on my list.  I do like the waterproof nature of Aqualillies. 

 

If I could only ever have one thing, it would be my Stila "French Rivera" set.  I love how easily these apply and blend.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I've heard good things about Lorac and Bare Minerals a lot lately! I may have to add them to my eye shadow to try list.... Smiley Happy

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Silly system won't let me edit.  I forgot to say that I do have some Bare Minerals Ready shadows and they do seem to apply and blend very nicely. 

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

As expensive as they are I love Chanel quads. Maybe its because my mother used mostly Chanel make up growing up. The color pay off is great and they're always coordinated so well.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

Oh I've never tried Chanel eye shadow!

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

My favorite eyeshadows come from Too Faced.  I love their palettes like the Matte Eye, Romantic Eye, Smokey Eye.  They are a great deal at $36 because you get 6 shadows in the palette and you can use them all together many different ways.  I think Too Faced has some of the best matte shadows around.  I have the matte eye and romantic eye palettes.  I reach for the matte palette every single day.  I love a matte highlight under the brow.  They blend very nicely and have great color payoff. 

 

Smashbox is another one of my favorite shadow brands.  I have the Smokebox and the Hazel Eye palette.  Their shadows blend like a dream.  Again I like the value of palettes and have been buying those a lot more lately compared to single pan shadows.  Smashbox has really pretty shimmery colors that don't cover your cheeks with fallout.  They also have a great selection of matte colors and colors with glitter. 

 

Lorac!  Lorac!  Lorac!  I feel like this brand sometimes goes unnoticed and that is such a shame!  They have beautiful shadows.  My favorite color by them is Rhapsody which is shimmery blue violet.  This shadow has no fallout, amazing payoff, and is very blendable.  You also don't need to load your brush up with product.  You only need a little bit the color feels really concentrated. 

 

NYX is my favorite drug store brand eye shadows.  I swear they should charge more for those little puppies.  They have a great color selection in the store.  They have tons of single pan shadows as well as lots of different palettes.  They also can be dupes for some of the higher end brands. 

 

Those are my favorite brands sold at Sephora.  Also there are the go-to's like UD, MUFE, MAC which are fantastic but sometimes it pays to branch out from the comfortable brands.

Re: Poll! Best eyeshadow?

I've heard good things about NYX too Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for all of the tips!

 

Which Too Faced matte palette do you have?
