• Glossier launched a collection of 10 eyeshadow palettes called Monochromes.
  • Each palette contains three complementary shades.
  • The compacts are refillable, with recyclable packaging.

Speaking as a person with blue eyes, playing up their natural intensity has always been my go-to when applying makeup. I'm pretty minimalist when it comes to the rest of my face makeup - no bright lipsticks or contouring for me. However, eye makeup is where I can make the most impact, and where I've been able to let a little creativity shine through.

Eyeshadow palettes are the most versatile piece of equipment in my beauty toolbox; a really great eyeshadow shade is like finding a rare pearl. And when you find multiple shades that you can't get enough of - well, you've hit the jackpot. That's what it felt like when I was trying the new Glossier Monochromes palettes. The little compacts pack a punch - each of the 10 palette options feature three complementary shades that you can use on their own or layer all three for a more dimensional look.

Within each palette, you'll find three textures: a matte shade, which is rich and smooth, to use as your base; a satin sheen, which is soft and delicate; and a metallic, which has a sparkle for a more dramatic shimmery look. The shades run from a marshmallowy cream to a cool lilac to a deep terracotta. And as an added sustainable bonus, the palette is refillable when you run out and the packaging is recyclable.

If you're feeling a little overwhelmed with which ones to choose, not to worry - I tried 'em for you. Keep reading to see my top five picks.
