I need a nice-quality eyeshadow palette that comes in dark, warm colors that have NO FALL-OUT (excess powder that falls & goes past where your brush puts it).

I know you get what you pay for, but I bought this exact NYX palette (called Smokey & Highlight):

I don't like it though. But don't better brands have fallout too sometimes because they're finely milled?

Please give suggestions for a pallette that contains:

- good amount of colors for the price
- dark, warm colors
- moderately priced
- NO FALLOUT

Have you tried cream eye shadows instead of powder...? That's all I've ever used...

Tap your brush so excess powder comes off before you apply to your eyelid. Also using a primer helps create a tacky base to help with fallout. Application and the brushes you use make a difference. You can also apply a decent layer of translucent powder under your eyes. It'll catch any fallout and you can brush it away when done. Even expensive shadows can have fallout, depends on the formula and what look that pigment is trying to achieve.

They have reasonable prices for their palettes. I own a few and am very satisfied with them, I use them very often. They have a few warm palettes on there right now.

Thanks a lot. I've tried tapping the excess off plenty of times. I don't always have the product, extra time nor want to go through the trouble of misting my brush w/ Evian water either.

crd08, thanks. I've always wanted to try MORPHE brand shadows & the price is good, so I'll go ahead & probably try them next. I like the SOCIAL BUTTERFLY one.

But any other suggestions?

I'm a makeup junkie and use shadows from Wet & Wild (surprisingly decent!) to Anastasia BH and Dior. I've found that avoiding fallout is a near impossible task. Within a brand, and even within a palette, there are going to be some shades with fallout. Not all of the shadows within a palette are going to be the same formulation if there's a mix of mattes, satins, shimmers, glitters, etc. So each of them will behave differently.

So I have learned that I always do my eyes BEFORE I put on foundation and then undereye concealer. So even if I have fallout, it's easily cleaned up and doesn't mess up my foundation.

I've never had such issues with fallout that I put on foundation/concealer after...I can't imagine that. I would suggest not loading your brush so heavily and applying with multiple strokes to better get the color to adhere. Also try getting a bunch of those disposable small sponge-type applicators.

No no no ... no sponges! You get better blended looks with different sized brushes ... a fluffy brush in circular motions for your transition shade and more dense brushes for areas where you want to pack in more colors.

I prefer brushes to sponges, too, and they're surprisingly cheap. I find that E.L.F. has a wide variety of sizes.
