3 Affordable Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes (Great for Beginners)

Affordable Neutral Eyeshadow
Top to Bottom (Tam Beauty I Heart Chocolate Palette, Coastal Scents Revealed Matte Palette, and Morphe 35A)

When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, I really like both affordable and high end palettes. I really like a palette that doesn't have to be paired with another palette to do a complete look. I like to have my brow bone shades, transition shades, lid shade and darker shades all together. I like a pigmented palette, but not a palette that is so pigmented I can quickly mess up.

The first palette is Tam Beauty's dupe of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, it's called I Heart Chocolate palette. I have alot of Tam Beauty's Chocolate palettes, and this one is a favorite of mine. Both the matte and shimmer shades are easy to work with. This palette is very neutral and great for people who don't want those really warm palettes.

The second palette is a newer palette from Coastal Scents. It's the Revealed Matte Palette that resembles the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette. I don't normally go for an all matte look, but if I'm looking for mattes, this is a palette I like to take out. If you do like just mattes, I think this will also be perfect. I like the gradient colors in the palette, and they blend very well.

The third palette is the Morphe 35A, and I was hesitant to add this one because Morphe is not always affordable. I live in Canada, and their shipping is expensive, with added custom fees- it really adds up quickly. However, I really like Morphe's palettes. I need to really pick and choose what I purchase from them. The 35A has every thing I want in a palette, except a matte white shade. When a palette doesn't have it, I'll use my face powder and it does the trick. I really like the warmth of this palette and the copper shades.

These three palettes are some of my favorite palettes. They are great for beginners and makeup collectors alike. If you're in the market for a neutral palette, these are recommended by me. If you've tried these palettes, let me know which one is your favorite.


  1. I haven't tried these but I don't have many mattes so the second palette sounds great x

    Velvet Blush

  2. I have heard so many great things about Morphe palettes, such a great selection, love. I am sure it will help beginners a lot :)


  3. I think Urban Decay Naked palettes are good for beginners. They come in warm tones, cool tones and there's a pink rose gold palette too.

  4. I wish Morphe's shipping wasn't so expensive to Canada! They have such nice looking palettes! I have a Coastal Scents palette that I got from Topbox. It's surprisingly decent!

  5. I have the I heart chocolate palette and it is great!

  6. I have both of the Morphe 25 Palettes and I really do like them xx
