2.NYX Go to palette – Wanderlust R699
This palette includes a highlight shade, blush and contour shade. All three shades are powdery and have some fallout when applied. This isn’t necessarily a deal breaker, but it’s not preferred.I highly recommend this palette specially because of the quality of the eyeshadows.Also, despite the powdery formulation of the three face products, they are pigmented and last a good amount of time on the face.

Beach – medium warm brown matte
Penny – warm orange matte

I have found that swatches of the shadows do not do the formula justice. When swatching, I did find that the centre shade Burgundy and also Almond to be a little patchy, however, this was not the case with the application. The formula allows for a really soft and blended finish.

7.REVLON COLOURSTAY 16 EYE-SHADOW. R300-R300
Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow blends smoothly and effortlessly for all-day luxurious color that doesnt crease, fade or smudge.
I find the pigmentation to be average but better than its predecessor, although using a primer beforehand makes the colors a bit more vivid and also keeps them in place. I want to point out that this shadow is easy to blend and makes it good for beginners.
8.NARS LOOK CLOSER EYESHADOW PALETTE
Deep neutrals are ideal for the cooler seasons, and this Bars palette introduced a spectrum of warm shades to wear everyday, for aNY occasion. Rather than coming equipped with an eye shadow brush. The miniature palette comes with the brand cult-favorite noir liner to line define, and smoke-out your look. We recommend it and its more affordable.
9.ESTEE LAUDER BRONZE GODDESS-SUMMER GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE
The sleek gold palette is really pretty and includes a generous mirror.
The eyeshadows are quite nicely pigmented with the exception of the teal which is quite sheer and applies murkier on the skin than it appears in the palette. our favourite shades in the palette are the last two shades. The matte brown is fantastic. The gold is really pretty but does produce quite a bit of glitter fallout. We found the shadows to have nice lasting power as well, again with the exception of the teal shade which faded quite a bit through the day.
10.SMASHBOX FULL EXPOSURE TRAVEL SIZE EYESHADOW PALETTE R450
This is a decent eye shadow . I am very into natural colors. But there is a lot of kick back and takes a little extra time to blend and normally turns out pretty patchy. Also it doesn’t have a very dark pigment. Swatches turn out great, but when actually getting the color on your eyelid its a whole other story. I find that it gives a very natural look but is definitely not the best for bold, dark, intense looks. I suggest mainly for a light make up look. Definitely easy for traveling.
