Gorgeous eye shadow pallets have arrived in their abundance to offer something for every look – from sleek and classy to downright kooky.
We choose our favourite new eye shadows for three different looks:
1. For the practical professional…
Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eye Shadow comes in a simple palette with four perfectly-matched shades. For women rushing from meeting to meeting with no time for make-up breaks, this durable, long-stay eye shadow is the perfect fix. Revlon Colorstay promises to offer rich, velvety colour that blends smoothly and stays crease-free and strong all day.
And it seems 16 is the magic number – as well as staying on for 16 hours, you can choose from 16 different on-trend colour combinations, including:
- Addictive – a range of soft nudes for an understated look.
- Adventurous – play with khaki and browns for a military spin.
- Goddess – smoky black and pearlescent greys to complement a statement rose-pink.

2. For the cute kook…
M&S Eye Shadow Limited Collection makes either a cute addition to the make-up bag, or a great birthday or Christmas present. The designers over at M&S have clearly been inspired by the AW12 catwalk trend for everything owl-themed. The palette contains six owl-shaped shades in an owl-themed palette, featuring colours in shiny silver, metallic gold, glittering charcoal, electric blue, bronze and pale pink. Described by Cosmopolitan magazine as a ‘must-have’, this delightfully kooky palette is on-trend and on-budget, at a purse-friendly £7.50.

3. For the sexy siren…
Shu Uemura Raspberry & Mocha Palette is one for the grown-ups. Sultry, dark plums complement chocolate brown and glittering mocha, sounding more like something you’d find on a Michelin star dessert menu than an eye shadow. However, this intriguing fruit-infused, highly anticipated eye shadow palette looks as luxurious as it sounds and, as it is limited edition, won’t be around for long – so if you have £50 to spare, get yours now.
