It’s not cheap, but this really is the perfect palette to create both neutral day-time friendly looks for all eye colours, as well as show-stopping creations when you pack on the glitters. Plus, the big shadow pans and its versatility are well worth the investment. What’s more, the colours can double up as contour and blush powders.
