As most of you guys already know eyeshadow is my favorite makeup product. Even though I prefer using eyeshadow palettes, I do sometimes use some single eyeshadows. Today I decided I wanted to show you guys my top 10 favorite single eyeshadows. If you’re interested in finding out which single eyeshadows I think are worth the money, keep on reading!
1. Urban Decay – Buck
The very best single eyeshadow I own and the one I used most often is Buck by Urban Decay. I reviewed it a while ago and when I did I told you guys why I love it so much. It’s because it’s a super multifunctional color and it’s a color I need for every single eye look. I use this as a blending/transition color almost every day for such a long time already. I absolutely love it.
2. MAC – All That Glitters
There are multiple reasons why I love All That Glitters by MAC so much. It’s not because I think MAC’s eyeshadows are amazing, I honestly think there are a lot of brands that create better ones, but I do love the color a lot. It’s a color I could use every day. It looks good with a lot of different other colors and the shine is just gorgeous. Besides that it was also one of the first eyeshadows I ever bought and my first MAC eyeshadow.
3. MAC – Twinx
Next up is another MAC eyeshadow. This one is called Twinx. It’s a very pretty dark brown color with a kind of reddish shimmer in it. I love how warm and chocolaty this color is. I really love using it. I do wish it was a little bit more pigmented, but besides that I think it’s amazing.
4. MAC – Gleam
On the fourth place I have MAC’s Gleam. It’s the last MAC eyeshadow in this post, I promise haha. I bought this when I got a gift card from Douglas a while ago because I read quite a lot of positive things about it. I have to say that I think it’s a gorgeous color and I love it. Again I would’ve liked a little bit more pigment, but despite that I still love using it.
5. Catrice Liquid Metal – Gold n’ Roses
Next up is an eyeshadow by Catrice. It’s from the Liquid Metal range. I dislike all the normal eyeshadows by Catrice, but this range is absolutely amazing. It’s just insane. I love the finish so much and I love how pigmented these eyeshadows are. Besides that I think the pattern is gorgeous and the color is amazing. I use this one an awful lot!
6. Catrice Liquid Metal – Gold Leaf Me
And another Catrice Liquid Metal eyeshadow. Gold Leaf Me is a gorgeous moss green color with a gold shimmer in it. I love using this color in my outer corner to add something special to my eyeshadow look. It’s still a very wearable color, but it’s just a little more special than just a brown.
7. Essence I ❤ Nude – Vanilla Sugar
Next up is one of my favorite eyeshadows from a budget brand of all time. It’s the Essence I ❤ Nude eyeshadow in Vanilla Sugar. I do have another eyeshadow from this range which I love a lot as well, but this one is just a little bit extra amazing. I use this eyeshadow literally every single day when I use a palette which doesn’t have a pretty highlighter in it or when I use single eyeshadows. It’s perfect!
8. Kiko – 136
Kiko is one of my favorite brands ever. I love their eyeshadows a lot. I have quite a few of their mono eyeshadows, but my favorite one is the one I bought first, a very pretty burgundy color. This was very trendy back then, but I still love using it now. Just like the green shadow by Catrice it adds something special to the look while still looking quite natural.
9. Jane Iredale – Dusk
This Jane Iredale eyeshadow is literally amazing. I won this a while ago and I’m in love with it. This is one of the most pigmented brown eyeshadows I own. It’s just impressive. I do forget to use it sometimes, but when I do, I fall in love with it all over again.
10. MNY – 120
The very last eyeshadow is the MNY eyeshadow number 120. MNY was a daughter brand from Maybelline and was available in stores a few years ago. It was a lot cheaper than Maybelline so I was pretty excited about it back then. One of the eyeshadow I bought back then was this one. I used it an awful lot, which is pretty obvious and I still love using it every now and then. The shine is just absolutely gorgeous!
And that was it already for today. My single eyeshadows top 10! I hope you enjoyed reading it and let know which eyeshadows are in your top 10!
