The £1.49 Eye Palette.

After browsing in Body Care I spotted this little palette from Technic all alone. After finding where it actually belonged and shouting 'IT'S ONLY £1.49' in my friends ear, I swiftly took it to the till to try out. I didn't expect much from this little palette but the colours were to perfect for me to leave in the shop. I've been pleasantly surprised by this bargain find, the colours are the most pigmented I've used, but for under £2 this is certainly a decent palette.

I've been loving the shimmery pale shades to use as a highlight or a base for other eye shadows. The pinky shade is one of my favourites and looks amazing just on it's own or with a little brown in the crease. I'm happy to report back the staying power of these is pretty amazing. I use a primer with every shadow and these have lasted all day on my lids. I love that you don't ever end up with too much on your eyes, I've found these are great for building up to the perfect shade. 

They have a lovely buttery texture too. As you can see they do flake a little in the pan but it's nothing a little tapping of your eye shadow brush can't sort. Once on my eyes they don't flake at all and really add a pretty brightness to my eyes. 

If you're looking for a cheap nude palette, that's the perfect size to pop in your hand bag I would certainly recommend this one. I'm now dying to try more from Technic.
