Urban Decay took us by storm in 2010 with their first palette. Recently they came out with their second palette which is a bit similar to the first one, but matte is the whole rave this year. Urban Decay did not stay behind and came out with a mini matte version that fits perfectly in your makeup bag.
This palette come with 6 different shades, one of them has a bit of shimmer which is called Venus very similar to Virgin from the first and second palette. I love that makeup companies are coming out with matte colors because they are very flattering to older complexions. As well as younger if you do not like all the shimmer.
Many brands have matte palettes that are just as good though. I'll list a few of my favorites down below.
This all matte palette comes with 9 different shades that comes in both neutrals and colors. What I like about this palette is that is divided into three different looks. The palette also includes look cards tucked away into the lid that shows different looks using this palette. I also love that it has a magnetic closure lid.
This palette contains 9 matte shades named after the Balm's favorite Matt's. It also includes a small bristle brush in the kit, which I actually love because is better than those sponge brushes you get in the drugstore eye kits. I love that is made out of heavy duty cardboard and has a magnetic closure lid and mirror. This palette plus the name is perfection.
This palette is one of the biggest! It includes 88 cool matte eye shadows. The only downsize is that you cannot carry this in your bag like you could maybe one of the other options, but it comes with so many that is worth the price and value. If you are looking for something more affordable this will be your got to palette for sure.
