Eye shadow palettes can be among the priciest items in a makeup collection — and they also tend to take up the most room in a makeup bag. So what makes one actually worth adding to your stash? It has to be a multi-tasking and long-lasting; it can't contain a single "dud" shade that rarely gets used. It must be able to create a broad range of different makeup looks, and beautiful (and bonus points for re-useable!) packaging doesn't hurt matters, either. The latest crop of eye palettes check all these boxes, and they offer up a dazzling array of shimmering metallics, unexpected brights, versatile neutrals and perfectly matched monochromes.
