I'm sick to death of hoarding lots of little eyeshadow pots, I am looking at the naked palette, but it all looks like neutrals, can anyone recommend another palette, with good pigment that comes in an array of colours? blacks and greys for smoky, purples, blues etc.

I would highly recommend getting a few Sleek palettes. They do a fab array of colours.

I'm a MUA and their shadows are as good as if not better than some of the big brands.

This is one of my favourites and might fit your brief.

Hold fire for a little while as there is a new naked pallet coming out for smoky eyes

The Naked Smoky is going to be a must buy but it doesn't have any purples or blues as the OP has specified.

I just got the Mua anniversary pallet and I am loving it! The colours might not be quite right for you but the pigment is good so worth checking out their other palettes.

why not go for a bobbi brown customised palette? you choose the individual colours and size of palette? it can seem quite expensive at first but believe me, will last for ages as it is highly pigmented and also you will never have a colour that you don't use. win-win.

Urban Decay's Smoked palette (not the new Naked Smokey) has neutrals, blue, purple, green etc. Or get a Z palette and make your own custom palette by depotting your single shadows and adding any extra colours you're missing. Makeup Geek sell Z palettes and inexpensive eyeshadow pans.

I like the Bobbi Brown customisable ones. They also mean that you can replace the pale shades you use up more quickly without having to waste others.

Nomi that's exactly what I'm looking for!

will take a look into the other suggestions aswell as I love the idea of customising a palette.

I have a couple of Bobbi Brown palettes but have found that their pigmentation can be poor. UD is good, but can be very shimmery. If you like shimmer they have a great range to choose from.

MAC do great customisable palettes too.

There's a really popular seller on Etsy called anothersoul who does beautiful empty palettes for you to put your own stuff into.

The Sleek ones are definately the cheapest way of dipping a toe into more striking colours though.

This is her. Just gorgeous stuff.

I recently discovered these - buy separate shadows and they clip together. I only have one so far (as I failed to understand the concept until I got home blush) but it's a nice texture and stays on well.
