eyeshadow palettes

Avon True Colour Lace Luxe Eyeshadow Quad | £8

Good variety of colours with pearl, pink, smoke and midnight blue, all with plenty of shimmer. The powder is a bit hard but can be applied to a good depth of colour. Part of the limited edition Luxe Lace collection, the packaging is embellished with lace details. Mirror and applicator mean this is beauty on the go for a low price point.

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Glamour Quad | £30

This is a limited edition for the festive season and is packed full of party fever. Four shades ranging from charcoal to shell pink, plus a golden surround which doubles up as an additional shade, offer plenty of opportunities for mixing colours. Glitzy packaging and a mirror but would benefit from including an applicator.

Vie Bedazzled Spellbound Eyeshadow Collection | £12

Ideal for the party season, this trio features silver, purple and dark blue all laden with glitter. There is plenty of each colour, they can easily be blended and the powder is soft enough to use lightly or to depth. Packaging is small and handy so easily portable with a mirror and double ended applicator although it is a bit fiddly to open.
