11 Galaxy Eyeshadow Palettes That Are Outta This World

Laura Kraber sent me Fluide’s “Otherworldly Palette” – aka, a galaxy eyeshadow palette filled with pastels and shimmers and pressed glitter and foils (a fav of mine) when it had just come out. 

I’ll show the results of the Otherworldly Palette in my next I-tried-it post, but for right now, I was inspired to look for even more galaxy palette options that were a bit darker. I stumbled upon Colourpop’s Star Wars collection and loved their Mandalorian galaxy eyeshadow palette, which pairs perfectly with Fluide’s palette. (Another time, another place, another try-and-review piece.) 

I’ve collected 11 eyeshadow palettes that will let you paint the galaxy upon your lids in no time. Get ready to feel like your true space cadet self – yeah, me included.

Otherworldly Palette

It’s literally called the Otherworldly Palette, so yeah, we can guarantee they’re referencing the universe with this.

Pair with other Fluide products for a truly out-of-this-world, loud-and-proud galaxy look.

ofra glitch eyeshadow palette

I’m obsessed with the look of this palette – the glitch theme gives it an extraterrestrial feel, or perhaps that it belongs in the future. Either way, very galaxy of this eyeshadow palette. The shadows are liquid-to-baked, coming in gorgeous colors such as silver metallic Ice Ice Baby and aqua blue metallic Mood Ring. The case is refillable, making it eco-friendly, and the formula is vegan and cruelty-free.

What could you expect from Lady Gaga herself if not totally out there? Sure, the Four-Way Shadow Palette comes in neutrals, but we’re particularly fond of color combos like Disco and Pay. Who doesn’t love a turquoise popping out among nudes, or lime green complementing orange and pink? You can also take a trip to the cold regions of the galaxy in the Poolside combo – so many options!

The Mandalorian Pressed Powder Palette from Colourpop is inspired by Mandalore itself, coming in darker shades that are ideal for a futuristic smokey eye. Choose from a buttery matte, a matte with shimmer, or a full-blown shimmer for a monochromatic look, or combine for a full-blown, can’t-miss-it stare.

clinique All About Shadow™ eyeshadow Quad in galaxy

It’s straight up called Galaxy – not sure how much more obvious you can get than that, right? The Galaxy eyeshadow palette is shimmery, which is only fair, because how else can you mimic the galaxy if you don’t include sparkle? The shadow itself is fade- and crease-resistant, and it’s gentle enough for sensitive eyes and contact-lens-wearers. Build the perfect smokey eye with a pop of aqua to make a statement.

EVERFAVOR galaxy eyeshadow palette of 21 shades

From a pure white moon, to an orange and white should-be, to planet Earth, to another should-be in brown and blue, 21 shades is more than enough – almost too much.

Galaxy kitten eyeshadow palette

Okay, so I’ve always thought my cat was a demon (I still think this tbh). But cats as planets? Now that is adorable. The case is decorated in kitten bodies as planets, which, cute. But the eyeshadows are the stars (or galaxy – sorry, had to) of this show. The palette is fairly neutral, with deeper shades mimicking the darkness of space. There are a few sparkling finishes to top off your stellar look.

Many palettes are either bright and bold, or darker and tame. Mashai Beauty’s Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette combines the best of both worlds.

Waterproof and crease-resistant, this is the galaxy eyeshadow palette to wear on days you’ll be caught in the rain, but still want to look fab.

Prism Makeup Interstellar Eyeshadow Palette

PRISM MAKEUP interstellar eyeshadow palette

It was literally inspired by Interstellar, so how could you mistake this eyeshadow palette for not being inspired by our great big galaxy? There are references to planets, like “Neptune” and “Venus”; technical terms like “Macrocosm” and “Infinite”; and other fun names like “Big Bang,” “Black Hole,” and “Asteroid.” With six buttery mattes and 15 bold, shimmery shadows perfect for neutral days and dazzling nights, this palette truly is galactically gorg.
