WITH THE FLASH
As you can see from the pictures the eye shadows in the Amazonian Babes palettes are quite well pigmented and since I am a bit darker in skin colour, the light brown is not as visible if you are a bit more fair skin toned. The eye shadows are very powdery and has a matte finish even though it has a slight sparkle to them. The texture of the eye shadows feel like satin and are super soft and creamy. They aren't really shimmer eye shadows but I would say that they look really nice even in the day and night.
NYX EYE SHADOW PALETTE IN A LA MODE
The A La Mode is a 9 colour eye shadow palette and all the eye shadows are perfect for creating the perfect smokey eyes and dark eyes. More of a night palettes I would say even though it does have a few neutral shades.

Some of the shades in the palette are a bit light on my skin tone but I like to use them as a base or in the crease as a transition shade.

All three eye shadow palettes packaging isn't very much and you do need to be careful as if you drop it might crack. Mine did and I was lucky enough that it didn't crack the eye shadows. They are very travel and friendly as you have a few shades and can create a few different looks with just one palette. Obviously the 9 colour eye shadow palette has a bigger variety and more options. The eye shadows are pigmented but I noticed that if you apply an eye primer before hand that that eye shadows will show up even more and last much longer. Without a primer I would get about 3 hours of wear time as I have very oily eye lids and with a primer I can pro long the wear time up to about 5-6 hours. As they are very powdery you need to be very careful about fall out so I recommend dusting off the excess before starting your eye makeup. My favourite palette is the Parisian Chic as I prefer creating more neutral eye makeup. These palettes are also very handy when I have to go out on makeup jobs as it reduces the amount of makeup I carry with me.
