Don’t get us wrong – neutral palettes are wonderful. That said, how many similar brown eyeshadow shades do you really need? This 2018, we’ve made a pledge to ourselves to inject more daring eyeshadow shades into our makeup routines, and with so many vibrant palettes avail in the market, you should too! Here are seven that we love:

1. Smashbox Bold Cover Shot Eye Palette (RM130)

Inspired by L.A. trends, this Smashbox palette features six electrifying hues that transform depending which of the two base shades you apply underneath. Yes, it’s a relatively small palette, but the possibilities are endless and surprisingly, these colours can be super wearable; it just boils down to the intensity you seek.

2. NYX Ultimate Brights Eye Palette (RM75)

With 16 striking shadows packed into one, this pro-level palette would make for an exciting yet affordable addition to your makeup collection. Bold, pigmented eyeshadow shades aside, the colours blend effortlessly and are long-lasting. To help these all-matte colours pop even more, try using an eyeshadow base underneath!

3. Omorose Shades of Glee Palette (RM149)

Just laying our eyes on this palette gets us delighted, and as the 12 eyeshadow shades in the palette comprise of both matte and shimmers in brights as well as neutrals, you can easily achieve full-on eye looks without another complementary palette. That plus point is surely a winner in our books.

4. Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette (£25, approx. RM134.50)

If you love being extra when it comes to makeup, this show-stopping palette filled with eye-popping shades is made for you. Huda Beauty ranks amongst some of the world’s best as far as eyeshadow pigmentation is concerned, so be rest assured because these striking hues would not disappoint.

5. Morphe Brushes 35B Palette (£23.50, approx. RM126.50)

Count on Morphe Brushes to get you the most bang for your buck as this huge palette consists of 35 vivid eyeshadow shades so you can create those out-of-the-box eye looks you’ve always dreamed of. We say, go all out and scour the deepest realms of YouTube for the wildest tutorials possible.

6. Colourpop X My Little Pony Palette ($16, approx. RM63.50)

Colourpop comes up with some of the most sought-after products, but this adorable collab has got to be one of our favourites. This 12-shade palette extends the vibrant personalities of those magical ponies into one palette and aside from mattes, satins and metallics, there are also a few with a gorgeous duo-chrome finish.
