At the cheap end of the market, I have found Boots natural collection have some matte, and so do Mua in their palette in Superdrug (there are sparkly ones in there too but they are cheap as chips, so doesn't matter too much. )
I have a great Mac one called malt and then someone on here recommended Soap and Glory quad.I looked at it.. 3 matte and one shimmer (pale, and 2 medium shades in the matte) and got it free when I bought a brilliant waterproof brown eyeliner and amazing "archery" eyebrow pen. £15 for all of it. I'm not sure the offer is still on but I would pay full price for all of them.
The mua pallette that Jenny linked to in Superdrug is half matte and half shimmery. But for £4 for a pallette of 12, you can't go wrong. I woudl receommend their Undressed, Undress Me Too, and Heaven and Earth pallettes. 3 for 2, so you get all 3 for £8. I really like their eyeshadow primer for £2.50 too - I smear that on my eyelids, then use the shadows and they stay in place all day and are generously pigmented.
