My Three Favourite Small Eye Palettes

I got a lot of positive feedback from my previous favourites post about my top five brushes, which you can read here, and so I thought that I would continue and do a sort of series. This post will be about my top three small eyeshadow palettes, which I consider to be around two to four shades. I have so many eyeshadow palettes that I needed to categorise them into size! *hoarder alert*

MAC 'Pro Palette X 4'

I love MAC palettes, as they cater for everyone because you can choose the shades that you want. The shades I chose are; All That Glitters (a beige/gold), Blanc Type (a creamy pale beige), Quarry (a cool toned brown) and Folie (a warm toned brown). These are such lovely shades that work amazingly well together. In the daytime I use All That Glitters on my lid, Blanc Type under my brow bone and Quarry in my crease, and in the evening I add Folie in the outer crease to darken it. MAC is not the cheapest as each individual eyeshadow is £13 and the case is £5. However, they do last a long time and are of a beautiful quality.

Charlotte Tilbury 'The Dolce Vita' Luxury Palette

I got this eyeshadow palette for Christmas and I instantly knew that I would love it as the shades are perfect for me. They are also slightly  different to what I would usually use, especially the red and khaki shades. The gold shade is also quite hard to use but it is only because it is almost like pure glitter, but once it's on the lid it's not going anywhere. This palette is £38 which is very expensive but I think totally worth it. However, there are no mattes.

Wet n Wild 'Sweet As Candy' Palette

This is a way more affordable option, and perfect for beginners as it even spells out where to put the eyeshadow. This is just such an easy palette and for £4.95, you can't really go wrong. The colour payoff is quite good, but there is some slight fallout. The pink shade is not too over the top and is very wearable, and I love the brown shade! However, there are no mattes.

What are your top three small eyeshadow palettes? Have you got any that I mentioned?

P.S. It is so hard to photograph mirrored products - does anybody have any tips?
