If you're looking for an affordable eyeshadow palette, then I highly suggest the NYX Smokey Shadow Palette! It retails for $7.50, and you get 6 amazing shadows perfect for creating a smokey eye!
This particular palette comes with a lot of beautiful deep highly pigmented colors, all of which are easily blendable! You can create a dramatic smokey eye look but with the lighter shadows you can also create a neutral everyday look as well! Most of the colors have a somewhat matte finish with tiny specks of glitter, and one really glittery shadow. The shadows feel super buttery and smooth, the texture is simply amazing!
In terms of lasting time, with a primer these last all day long, with the same vibrancy as when you first apply them. $7.50 for this palette is a steal, and what's amazing is that Ulta has NYX products on sale at times, Buy One Get One 50% so make sure you check out their site periodically!
Daytime w/artificial light -- Shades are amazing!!
This palette is a must for anyone looking for an affordable smokey eye palette, for anyone traveling, on the go, and even for the person who already owns a billion shadows this palette is amazing and you simply cannot pass it up!
