I have £48 of points to spend on my Advantage Card and could do with a really good-quality eyeshadow palette. I don't need a million colours (4 will be plenty), need something grey-ish rather than brown-ish but would like something a bit different than just 3 greys and a cream - maybe a nice forest greeny-grey or a navy blue or similar.
Clarins had one that looked good but I tested it and the colours looked very muddy on my skin. I looked at a Chanel one online but it gets terrible reviews. The Estee Lauder ones I've tried have rubbish pigmentation (that was years ago, mind you) and I've never bought any eyeshadows by Dior and can't think what other brands I might try. Any thoughts?
Have a look at the NYC range...I love my Urban Decay palettes BUT bought an NYC "lid lingerie" a few month's ago and in all honesty am converted. Last week on a work trip I'd forgotten my eye primer...the eyeshadow stayed looking good from 7.30 am until I fell off the train after 9.00 pm.
