Pat McGrath Labs Mothership IX: Huetopian Dream, $125 at Pat McGrath Labs
Well worth the high price tag, this palette boasts 10 shades in six finishes. The creamy powders are super blendable as we’ve come to expect from the brand. Our favorite shade? Frankly, it’s a toss up between Blitz Sextreme and Astral Amethyst Moon.
Too Faced Cinnamon Swirl Sweet & Spicy Eye Shadow Palette, $49 at Ulta Beauty
This must-have eyeshadow palette has a whopping 18 shades. While they’re mostly neutrals, they offer maximum payoff. It’s all thanks to the highly pigmented, creamy formula. All you need is one swipe for notice-me lids.
Huda Beauty Wild Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette in Python, $29 at Sephora
Score nine velvety hues with this mini palette. The textures are pretty innovative. We’re talking soft-as-suede mattes, foiled metallics and a multi-reflective, 3-D-embossed python print. The formula also impresses since it makes the shadows both buildable and blendable.
Fenty Beauty Bomb Posse Mega Mix + Match Eyeshadow Palette, $48 at Fenty Beauty
We can always rely on Rihanna for stunning eyeshadow shades. Just look at this new palette. It features 12 mega-size nudes inspired by the brand’s Gloss Bomb shades. Whether you want to go subtle or all out, these crease-resistant hues make it easy with their matte, shimmer and metallic finishes.
Dior 5 Couleurs Couture - Limited Edition in 659 Early Bird, $65 at Dior
Inspired by the changing reflections of birds' feathers and fall colors, the five shades in this palette are really eye-catching. The creamy formula makes the shadows comfortable to wear, which is great since they’ll stay on your lids a long time. The only drawback? Applying said shades ruins the cool feather motif.
