My Most Used Single Eyeshadows

Let's be real, a single eyeshadow is a darn faff to dig out for the sake of just one colour. My palettes get more use than 90% of my single eyeshadows. So much so, in fact, that I've almost completely stopped bothering with single eyeshadows because I'm lazy af. However, there are a few (few being the operative word) single eyeshadows that I go back to time and time again and that will likely always hold a special place in my heart. So here's a little post rounding up the cream of the crop!

MAC is a brand I have a lot of single eyeshadows from. This may be somewhat cheating because i store mine in a quad, meaning they compile more of a palette but I'm counting these anyway! All That Glitters is likely the shade I use most of all of these. I've hit pan properly and there's a good reason for it. There's never a situation where this eyeshadow doesn't work and it's my failsafe go-to when I can't be bothered to try and be more creative. Now, I know the second shadow in here is Coppering (which I also love) but I seem to have had a minor brain fart because the actual shadow I wanted to include is Nylon, a gorgeous, super white frosty shade that I use to highlight my brow bone. It's so pigmented and vivid that I always reach for it when I want my brows to look a little more "polished".

Another brand I own a fair few single eyeshadows from is Colourpop. Their Super Shock Shadow in La La is such a stunning bronzey rose gold shade. It's the kind of shade you look at in the pan and already swoon over, because it's just such a gorgeous colour. The pigmentation of these shadows is stellar and they feel like a cream/powder hybrid. Wattles is another shade from this line I'm absolutely obsessed with. Same fab formula and pigmentation but a much more understated colour. It looks a bit nothing-y in the pan but applied to the lids and blended out it transforms into a beautiful rosy-beige shade. A foolproof pick for lazy days!

Last but not least we have the Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow in Golden Peach (Baby Peach is super similar). The warm tone of this shadow looks gorgeous with blue eyes and the sparkle gives your eyelids and almost wet look. If you apply this with a damp brush you end up with a foiled appearance, which looks stunning paired with nude lips and a bronzed, glowy complexion. It's a pricier one but good glitter eyeshadows are tough to come by so it's well worth it in my opinion!

I'm a creature of habit to say the least and the fact that I've hit pan on pretty much all of these (bar the Coppering mixup!) says it all really. What are some of your favourite single eyeshadows?
