Are you experiencing 'eyeshadow palette fatigue'?

Will we ever be all swatched out?

IT’S A WONDERFUL time to be a makeup enthusiast. Now, the industry is more expansive than ever with plenty of choice when it comes to products, whether you’re Joe Soap or Ring Light Rita.


This is particularly true when it comes to eyeshadow. Everyday, YouTubers and Instagrammers alike are coming out with their own iterations of palettes. This week alone, YouTuber James Charles revealed his collaboration with makeup brand Morphe – a 39-pan eyeshadow palette with a brush collection to match.

It’s left people (ok, maybe just me), facing a tough decision in the run up to Christmas – “which one should I get?!”

With a now endless list of collabs to choose from – are you over it? Or are you lapping up what the MUAs and brands are offering up? I mean, can you ever really have too many palettes?
