Palettes are a great way to own several shades of makeup without having to splash out individually. These days, you can get some great budget palettes with the likes of MUA and Makeup Revolution offering affordable but good quality makeup. I also really like sleek and mentioned the new arabian nights palette in this post.
I've struggled to find good quality matte shadows but these are all fantastic. Theres also a good range of neutrals in here - I like using the lighter shades on the lid and naked 2 and faint in the crease. Crave also doubles as a liner. An overall must have staple in my collection and not overly pricey either.
Benefit aren't particularly known for their palettes but I really like their world famous neutrals set in most glamorous nudes ever. In here you get four powder eyeshadows and two cream shadows. The powder shadows are good quality, pigmented and smooth but the real highlight are the cream shadows in birthday suit (bronze brown) and my two cents (copper bronze).
I've mentioned MUA and Makeup Revolution as two good budget brands but I also rate the Wet n Wild Color Icon Palettes. Silent treatment is one of my favourite trios - I reviewed it here. It sucks not being able to find certain brands in the UK but I've found these on Amazon and Ebay. I've read the older trios are much better quality than the recent releases but I do know theres a few wet n wild MAC dupes.
What are your favourite shadow palettes?
