1.) Right now I am absolutely LOVING Bobbi Brown's Nude on Nude Palette. It's on the pricier side at $65 but it's one of those palettes were you will end up using every last color. It comes with 4 gorgeous metallic shades (Golden Pink, Bare, Smoky Topaz, Golden Bronze); perfect for the lid, creating a smokey eye, or adding a pop of shimmer to the corner. There are also 3 sparkle shades (Chiffon, Graphite, Gold) and 5 matte shades ( Ivory, Naked, Birch, Truffle, Espresso); perfect for the crease and blending out the color. This palette is just absolute perfection for anyone who loves nudes!

2.) If you want to go a little more daring with the colors you're using, Too Faced's Pretty Rebel Eyeshadow Palette has some gorgeous metallic blues, greys, golds, greens and even pinks. It's a little less pricey than the Bobbi Brown Palette at $46 and definitely for the more rebellious types. The hues are gorgeous though and there are so many fun looks you can get out of this palette!

3.) Lastly, if you love the look of metallics but don't love the price of some of these palettes, there are drugstore brands that have really high quality, affordable options. Maybelline's Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palette, Nudes is an amazing alternative to the Bobbi Brown Palette. It has 12 gorgeous metallic shades, and the color palette is very similar to that of Bobbi Brown's. And, at only $8, it's not quite as hefty of an investment. I personally love Maybelline products, I think you always get amazing quality, the colors look great on and it's a perfect addition to your makeup kit!

While a new trend, if you ask me, is always a reason to purchase a new palette (I totally don't have a shopping problem) you can also just purchase one or two shades individually, like a normal person without a compulsive makeup habit. Here are some of my favorite individual metallic shades.
1.) Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Gun Metal is a really gorgeous, dark, metallic grey that is perfect for a dark smokey eye or to add some intensity to your lower lids. It's only $18 and lasts forever so it's well worth the price. And, if silver's not your thing, it comes in 67 other gorgeous colors!

2.) If you're willing to splurge a little, NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Dione is a gorgeous metallic, champagne-beige shadow. It looks amazing on, really bringing out the depth and intensity of your own eyes. I love that you can play it down and wear it with a simple liner for a more natural look, or add some browns to smoke it out. Well worth the $29 for such a versatile color.

3.) If you're looking to spend a little less, L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Metallic Shadow Duo is a great choice! They're only $8 and you get 2 colors in one, so you can easily have a few different looks to play around with. It comes in 9 different duos, so you can get both a silvery dark one and a warmer bronzy one for less than the cost of any of the other options. They're all highly pigmented and they look gorgeous on. They're also great for traveling as you only have to throw one duo in your purse instead of multiple shadows. They're really a great choice especially for colors you want to try but you wouldn't use every day.

So those are some of my favorite metallic shadows for this fall. I'm absolutely loving this trend! I love shimmery eyes and metallics are so universally flattering. They reflect light beautifully and really make your eyes pop. If you haven't tried this trend yet, run to your nearest store and pick up some shadows. Trust me, you'll be back buying more before you know!
