Reasonably priced eye shadow pallette?

(28 Posts)

I want an eyeshadow pallette with a range of colours (blue, purple, etc) so that when I go away with work I don't have to take loads of single eyeshadows with me.

Any recommendations for a cheapish one that also lasts?

Have a look on the boots website. Lots on there and 3:2 at the moment.

H&M do a surprisingly good one for £5.99, loads of colours and very compact.

The MUA ones from Superdrug are very good

MrsMiniversCharlady Sun 11-Nov-12 12:26:12

Second vote for MUA

Mua again. I have several and they are very good and very reasonably priced.

Another vote here MUA from superdrug. Amazing quality for the price and they've got 3 for 2 offer.

Definitely MUA - they are just as good as Smashbox and that's saying something!

Another vote for MUA from me.

Another MUA vote. The trio I recently bought even showed me where to apt each colour on my lid.

MUA (Make up Academy) at Superdrug are really well pigmented so you can go lightly or really intense - have been compared favourably on MN to much more expensive brands

QueenieLovesEels Sun 11-Nov-12 14:53:41

MUA here too. They are fab-u-lous <channels waspy bloke from STRICTLY>

MUA, Sleek or INGLOT freedom system, where you can buy an empty palette and choose 10 shades to fill it up with.

MooMinCow Sun 11-Nov-12 16:48:36

Sleek 'original' eye palette if you want some brights or their 'storm' one if you want more dark smoky colours. MUA good too, but I think if you want variation in shades Sleek wins (plus they include a versatile matte black eyeshadow in each palette)

Sleek. Have 4 palettes and used to exclusively use mac. Won't bother paying mac prices for 1 shadow when for 7 ish quid I can have 12!

FayeKinitt Sun 11-Nov-12 19:03:23

Another vote for MUA!

Where can you get the Sleek ones from?

If anybody wants a neutrals one, Urban Decay Naked is brilliant. It's not cheap but I've used it almost every day for nearly a year, so it has worked out at v good value cost per wear!

puzzlepetal Sun 11-Nov-12 19:22:44

Sleek is sold in Superdrug.

MooMinCow Sun 11-Nov-12 19:34:39

linky for Sleek eye palettes. Their blushers are superb also, and 3 for 2 in Superdrug at the moment (have indulged this week blush)

MrsMeow Sun 11-Nov-12 19:44:13

MUA = amazing.

They do a copy of the Urban Decay Naked palette called 'Undressed" for £4.

rubyslippers Sun 11-Nov-12 19:45:51

YY to MUA palette

The undressed palettes is fabulous - wear it everyday and it lasts

AuntieMaggie Mon 12-Nov-12 20:04:25

Thank you. I have a naked palette but wanted a more colourful one where I can have all the colours in one place iyswim?

AuntieMaggie Mon 12-Nov-12 20:14:02

Can i try the inglot ones anywhere?

squoosh Mon 12-Nov-12 20:16:44

Was going to say MUA, their palettes are great.

456 people got there before me!

fridgepants Mon 12-Nov-12 23:16:45

What I do at Inglot is buy the individual pans and put them in a Unii Palette. I bought the palette a while ago as I was being driven mad by packaging and decided to depot everything - they are freeform so you can fit any brand in there rather than just the ones that fit the slots. Yaby palettes are slightly cheaper but not as durable in my experience.
