My Favourite Single Eyeshadows

Although I love my eyeshadow palettes, sometimes there will be a single eyeshadow which will take over my world. I still use my eyeshadow palettes the most, but there will be times when I will be using a single eyeshadow all the time. In this post, I will be talking about four of my favourite individual eyeshadows that I think look absolutely gorgeous on their own, and you should add to your collections. There are all neutrals or browns, but that's mainly what I use on a day to day basis. What I also love is that there is a range of prices as well, so there is something for everyone. 

MAC Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe
I remember when I first started watching beauty videos on YouTube, Satin Taupe eyeshadow was so popular. When I first when and bought from a MAC counter, this was on the list. Although I started using it as a crease shade, when wearing All That Glitters on the eyelid (which in hindsight, I'm not sure why I thought that would work), I now only wear it on its own.

It's a great eyeshadow to use for a quick evening make-up look. It has a frost/shimmer finish but it is definitely one of the better ones, so if you have quite oily eyelids, you don't need to fear it. In my last Makeup Monday Instagram post, I wore this on the eyes on top of the Ardell Beauty Eyeresistible Shadow Stick in Do Me Right. Not only did it ensure that the shadow stick did not budge, the colours also paired together beautifully.

Seventeen Eyeshadow in Statuesque
I cannot believe that this brand is leaving us. Yes, it's true. If you haven't heard, Boots is discontinuing Seventeen. Once the stock is finished online, and in-store, this brand will be gone! This eyeshadow was one of the makeup products that I saw bloggers use, and had to own it immediately. Now I own it in the old packaging, but I think I will have to try and find it in my local store so I have a back-up.

Although it is sad to see Seventeen leave us, it does mean that it is currently £1.20 online at Boots - so if you want to give this a try, get it online now! I feel like Seventeen was brought in as a younger alternative to No. 7, and to be frank even now, I would choose Seventeen over No.7 as I still associate that with my mum and her skincare.

Barry M Dazzle Dust in Copper
Another throwback eyeshadow! I mentioned in my S/S makeup post, that I used to own every colour in the rainbow in the Dazzle Dusts. I still cannot tell you why. This is one of the few colours that have stayed with Barry M, even when the Dazzle Dusts stopped being the main product.

This looks absolutely stunning on the eyelid, you could almost see it from space. The pot can be a little fiddly, you could easily drop it and lose everything!

The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow Trio in Love U So Latte
Now I realise that this is technically three eyeshadows, but it is the size of a single eyeshadow so I'm counting it! I got this in a Birchbox, and it is one of the best make-up products I've received. For some reason, this particular trio is not available on The Beauty Crop website. I love the two shimmery shades, they just look really pretty alone, or together on the eyelid.

Its also only £7 which I think its a pretty good deal.

So these are my favourite single eyeshadows, do you have any favourite individual eyeshadows, or are you a complete palette lover?
