2022 Eyeshadow Palette Tag: Worst Collab? Biggest Regrets? Small or Big?

2022 Eyeshadow Palette Tag: Worst Collab? Biggest Regrets? Small or Big?

Hello, beautiful creatures! Today I thought it would be fun to do the 2022 Eyeshadow Palette Tag by Annette’s Makeup Corner! I added some questions to make it beauty-focused instead of exclusively eyeshadow. As always, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

Vampyre Cosmetics Cthulhu Cocktails palette is a PR sample, and I purchased everything else, and all opinions are my own.

Danessa Myricks Beauty Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette

I wanted to share my swatches of the Danessa Myricks Beauty Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette, my Pixie Dust Chrome Flake, and my Twin Flames.

Danessa Myricks Beauty Lightwork Vol. IV First Impressions

So far, I don’t use the aqua chrome shades Intuition or Aura very well. I tried spritzing my brush with Urban Decay’s All-Nighter and running it across the pans, but I could barely get any color out. Right now it seems I don’t like a water-activated formula with regular shadows.

I found Paradise difficult to swatch because it kept picking back up on my finger rather than adhering to my arm. However, it applied beautifully to my lids! I mixed Paradise with Awakening to create my gorgeous lid look in this video.

The Pixie Dust Chrome Flake is described as teal with a lilac shift.

My two Twin Flames are stunning; Amour is described as a wisteria purple and periwinkle, and Soul Mate is defined as an opal green and hazelnut. These are a little more tricky to work with on my hooded lids, and they perform the best for me when I apply them with my fingertip, sparingly, in a thin layer, and keep my eyes closed until they dry.

Ulta Thor Love & Thunder Valkyrie Eye Palette – Small Palette

Ulta Thor Love and Thunder Valkyrie Palette swatched on very fair skin

Here are the shade descriptions for the Ulta Thor Love & Thunder Valkyrie Eye Palette. I bought this because I love cool tones and I got it for $15 either through a $10 off coupon or some sale Ulta had. Ulta has great sales and I take advantage of their points multipliers frequently! I love the Ulta Valkyrie palette, and it’s my pick for the best small 2022 eyeshadow palette.

Shade Descriptions

  • Dragon Fang – aqua shimmer
  • Your Majesty – light aqua matte
  • Cosmic Path – silver shimmer
  • Warrior – cool-toned light gold shimmer
  • The Throne – plum matte
  • King of Asgard – grey purple taupe matte
  • Warsong – white matte
  • Armored Up – cool-toned deep brown matte

Vampyre Cosmetics Cthulhu Cocktails Palette – Big Palette

Vampyre Cosmetics Cthulhu Cocktails Palette Swatches

Cthulhu Cocktails is such a fantastic book palette! The only thing I would change about the Vampyre Cosmetics Cthulhu Cocktails palette is that I would group each set of colors by color family, into quads, or from light to dark. I’m weird like that; I like the colors to be aesthetically pleasing next to each other in the pan. It’s the big 2022 eyeshadow palette that surprised me the most and I adore it!

Buxom Hot Toddy Palette – Worst Palette

Buxom Hot Toddy Swatches on Very Fair Neutral Skin

The Buxom Hot Toddy palette works well on my fair skin tone, but the two shimmer shades were too close for my taste and were disappointing. I was sad that I missed my return window at Ulta and wasted points on it, and that’s why I am calling it the worst 2022 eyeshadow palette I bought.

Shade Descriptions

  • Maple Cider – buff matte eyeshadow
  • Mulled Peach Wine – terracotta brown matte eyeshadow
  • Appletini – burnt orange metallic eyeshadow
  • Ginger Beer – soft copper shimmer eyeshadow
  • Aspen – cinnamon nude satin blush

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing tag videos this year! Let me know if there are other tags you’d like me to film. I hope you enjoyed my best and worst of 2022 eyeshadow palettes, skincare, and hair. What are your picks for the best and worse?


  1. You’re slowly convincing me I should do tag videos. I used to love watching them and I just don’t see them much anymore, but you seem to be on a one woman mission to bring them back 😀
