WHY YOU NEED IT: Multiple shadow finishes, including satin, matte, and sheen, are perfect for any skin tone.
USERS SAID: “I am a girl who loves makeup. I like because all the colors are usable, pigmented, they blend beautiful. The back offers 4 easy looks. The only problem is I did not find this sooner. I would tell a friend to buy it, quick. This is a keeper.”
NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette
BEST FOR: Bold, bright looks
USERS SAID: “I absolutely am in love with this shadow [palette]. The pigment is dark enough to be able to be very bright, but thinned out enough to where you can layer and blend the colors if you want to. Either way the end result is going to result in a very vivid color.”
L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow
USERS SAID: “I have been using it for several months and I could not be happier with it. Colors are very beautiful and pigmented, but not too much. I love the rosy colors the most. I bet they look great on anyone.”
