List Rules Which eyeshadow palette gems catch your eye?

Yes, the base of your flawless face is dependent on a killer foundation and a primer that's strong enough to stop oil from a ruptured pipeline. After you've got the basics down, though, you can move on to the fun stuff. God-tier eyeshadow palettes and super glitter everything come next. In fact, there are so many eyeshadow collections - everyday nude palettes, date night smokey palettes, dusk tone palettes, warm and bronzey palettes - that we just couldn't pick the ultimate one. 

We polled Facebook makeup junkies to find out which ones they can't live without and we got more than we bargained for. They told us which ones to buy for which occasions, when to use them, and sometimes even offered more affordable shadow palette dupes. They're all assembled below and won't cost you an arm and a leg (okay, some might but you want a perfect smokey eye right?).
