OK, makeup people. I need some advice. I’ve been looking for an eyeshadow palette that has basic colors I can wear everyday, and a couple of darker/more fun colors for fancier makeup.

I have a Maybelline Nudes palette, but I don’t really love it because the colors are pretty cool, and my eyes really benefit from pink and purple tones in eyeshadow.

I went to Sephora yesterday, and I liked Stila’s Mind Palette a lot, but I balked at the $49 pricetag. That is a LOT of money for eyeshadow, and I don’t love every color, just most of them. The things I like about it are: The warmer, pinky and orangey tones, the neutral beige tones that are good matches for me, the lack of sparkle. I’m really into matte everything right now. The things I don’t like are: that one weird blue-grey color, and the predominance of darker colors.

So, my question is, does anyone know of a similar palette to Mind that is less expensive? Alternately, if you have some Stila knowledge that you think would make it worth $49, please try to convince me to buy it. I’m trusting you, Groupthink!
