Rubab Aftab – Beauty Editor
Hello everyone! Fall is right around the corner and since September 1, I have been impatiently waiting with all my sweaters, and coats lined up. Is it the same case with you? With Fall approaching we have been receiving some great eye shadow palettes from different companies.
My Instagram has been flooded with notifications from different Makeup accounts about different brands releasing their Fall collections. I have been specifically eyeing the eye shadow palettes because I really wanted to see what is being offered to us. Some of the top eye shadow palettes that have been released so far are the following:
- Pat McGrath Midnight Sun Palette (This has been reviewed here)
There isn’t an inch of doubt about how amazing Mama Pat is and what an amazing job she does with all her products. Her eye shadow is definitely one of the top rankings one in the market in terms of quality and pigmentation. For her Midnight Sun Palette, she has followed the same color scheme as other companies have done for this fall. Just take a moment to appreciate this beauty right here. You get the following 10 shades here:
- Vermillion Venom
- Skinshow Moon Glow
- Astral Solstice
- Blitz Violet Orchid
- Blood Moon 005
- Bronze Eclipse
- Wicked Envy

This pretails for $125 in stores and online.
Natasha Denona Metropolis Palette
Natasha Denona is one of my personal favorite makeup artists. Her eye shadows have ruled the market since the past few years and her color schemes for palettes have always been beyond beautiful. For this Fall she has stuck mainly to golds, oranges and has added a hint of blue to her eye shadow palette. The shade names for this beauty are as follows.
This palette with 28 brand new shades retails for $129 and you need to keep in mind that it is limited edition.

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palettes
Then we have the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette for you. Too Faced has one of the cutest packagings in the world and their eyeshadows smell like the theme that they have for the palette and this one smells like fresh gingerbread. Cool, isn’t it?

- Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Palette
Lastly, we have the Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Palette. The palette is going to be great quality as will be divided into four color schemes which will make it very easy to use even for a beginner. The four themes are:
- Happy Glow Eyes
- Love Glow Eyes
- Dream Glow Eyes
- Seduce Glow Eyes
It will be available for $75 but only for a week and will have 12 mesmerizing shades.
So what Color Schemes are we getting?
If you take a look at all these palettes, then you will notice a few things like I did. First of all, the overall color schemes are very warm for this Fall. Along with these we will be getting some hints of blue and military green and purple. You can notice this in almost all the palettes that I have mentioned above.
Do you need these color schemes in your collection?
There is no doubt about the fact that these eye shadow palettes seem REALLY tempting to buy. All of the big names such as Pat McGrath, Natasha Denona, Too Faced and others have made sure that everything is on point from the packaging to the eye shadow quality. But, there is one big question that you need to ask yourself? Do you actually need to buy ALL of these? The answer is simply no, you don’t – no matter how tempting it seems.
Take a look at all these beautiful colored palettes and do a simple trick – just hide the purple, blue or green pigment – what do you see?
ALL neutral shades.
Do you actually need all these neutral shades, transition shades and goldens? If you do not already have these in you collection (which you probably have if you are an eyeshadow collector like me) then you have your answer right there.
All in all, let us all be prepared for a very warm brick toned fall this year in terms of eyeshadows.
I hope this post helped you all have an idea what to look forward to.
See you all soon 🙂
