5 Eyeshadow Palettes With Nostalgia Written All Of ThemNovember 29, 2018
Nostalgia is a powerful drug. It’s the reason the Internet loses its collective mind whenever a childhood show gets a reboot and why Crayola makeup products are selling out left and right. Not only do nostalgia-infused products remind us of a simpler time (Saturday morning cartoons, anyone?), they’re also very cute. We’ve rounded up the cutest of them all ahead — just don’t blame us if you’re compelled to add them all to your cart.
Peep our picks, ahead:
Similar to the OG crayon boxes, the Box of Crayons Eyeshadow Palette offers vibrant hues, but these are eye-safe and meant for bold, vibrant eyeshadow looks. It includes all the colors of the rainbow, along with some in-between shades to help you create a wide variety of looks. We’re particularly obsessed with the primary matte hues, perfect for getting those bright, one-color, eyeshadow looks.
If there’s one thing “Mean Girls” gave us, it’s a quote for any and all situations. Luckily, Storybook Cosmetics gave us a palette too, aptly named after the infamous Burn Book with shade names that call up fond memories of the cult-classic. Our favorites include “Wednesday” (of course), a punchy hot pink and “So Fetch”, a matte mustard-yellow shade that’s definitely on trend.
Soda Pop calls up fond memories of summer days filled with sugary drinks and no comprehension of working on a Thursday in July. And while Maybelline can’t give us eight glorious, uninterrupted weeks of summer vacation, they did give us the Soda Pop palette — a cherry cola-scented beaute featuring 12 pigmented shades inspired by longtime soda faves.
If you were Candyland obsessed as a kid or love all things sugary sweet, we recommend adding the Sugar Trip Shadow Palette to your stash. It features 12 shades in a wide range of finishes — from hot pink to chartreuse and all the candy-colored hues in between.
Not only is this palette the ultimate throwback, it’s high performing, too. It features 10 wearable shades like “Football Head” blue — a cobalt blue that’s on trend — to “Rawr” a sparkly green that reminds us of our favorite green dinosaur.
