The Newest Eyeshadow Palettes Everyone Is Buying For Spring

Our Top 10 Guides help shoppers quickly and easily find what they need. Using an intense review and approval process (which you can learn more about here), we break down the best products according to what consumers most commonly search for and want.


Over the past year, it's safe to say our face masks have really stolen the thunder from our makeup looks. Without ample opportunity to show off our bold lip colors and on-trend faux freckles, we began looking for new ways to create stunning makeup looks that will still stand out. Our favorite method? A bold eye. This is why we're ever so grateful that spring has officially sprung, because it means we can dive headfirst into the brightest and boldest shades our hearts desire. With that, we embarked on a search for the season's most popular eyeshadow palettes as soon as the clock struck midnight on the first day of spring, and we're happy to report that the results did not disappoint. From splurge-worthy palettes by Natasha Denona to shimmery shades you won't believe are from the drugstore, we've rounded up an edit of the dreamiest spring eyeshadow palettes out there right now.
