Now that October has landed, along with the falling leaves and cooler temperatures, I’m ready to make the shift to more autumn-inspired eyeshadow shades. While the “sunset eye” colors of reds and oranges, are still popular, I can’t wait to start experimenting with plums, pinks and burgundies.

Metallic textures are still having a moment, both in eyeshadow and on lips. The best eyeshadow palettes that I’ve found for fall have a mix of textures…metallics, glitters and mattes are dominant. While neutrals are still the backbone of any makeup bag, the punched-up colors being shown this Fall will make a statement.

These are the best eyeshadow palettes (new, coming soon and a few classics) for Fall 2017!

  1. Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Palette in Provocouture* (review) – A gradient of pinks with excellent color payoff.  
  2. MAKE UP FOR EVER Lustrous Shadow Palette – This new holiday release of 12 Artist Colors has 9 matte and 3 metallic eyeshadows in bold and neutral shades.
  3. Natasha Denona Lila Eyeshadow Palette – The palette consists of 15 purple-hued shadows in four finishes…chroma crystal, creamy matte, duo-chrome and metallic. Exquisite quality. A splurge, but worth it!
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette* – The colors in this palette say “fall” to me more than any other, and the quality of the shadows, and color payoff is exceptional. Five stars!
  5. Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette – I was impressed with the pigmentation and color payoff of this palette, compared to others from Too Faced. Don’t hesitate if these are your colors.
  6. MAC Burgundy X9 Eyeshadow Palette (review) – This palette is a mini-showcase of burgundy favorites!
  7. Viseart Golden Hour Eyeshadow Palette -The newest Viseart palette out, this one is all about the shades of the “Golden Hour”, when the sun sets and the lighting is perfect.
  8. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette* (review) -One of my favorite palettes of the year, regardless of season.
  9. PÜR PRO Palette X Etienne – 18 eyeshadow shades curated by makeup artist Etienne Ortega, in shades that work on all skin tones.
  10. Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette – Although I haven’t seen this in person yet, the combination of rich shades and textures (glitters!), makes it a must on any wishlist.
  11. Smashbox ‘Golden Hour’ Cover Shot Eye Palette* (review) Great color payoff in a portable palette.
  12. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette – Stunning, as you would expect from Charlotte Tilbury! (see comments below)
  13. BECCA Cosmetics Après Ski Glow Collection Eye Lights Palette – This new eyeshadow palette features the shades of the Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in a new formula for eyes! Love!

I ordered the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette on the pre-sale a couple of weeks ago. This is a holiday release (coming soon), and it’s gorgeous. Everything from the glam art-deco packaging, to the buttery soft neutral eyeshadows organized by “looks”, this is a palette worth the investment. There are a mix of textures, including mattes and shimmers. Even though I have neutral palettes, I can easily say I don’t have a neutral palette like this.

With all of the palettes I have, I saw this Palette Organizer on Amazon and thought I’d give it a try. I keep the palettes I use most often in there; it’s the perfect size to keep on my vanity.

What eyeshadow palettes have you been grabbing lately? I feel the pain of being tempted with all the new releases; going on a “no-buy” is impossible!
