Sleek Eyeshadow Palette - The Original 594

The Original Palette was the first 'grown up' eyeshadow palette I bought. By that, I mean, that it was the first one that wasn't full of solely rainbow colours like the sort most little girls get for Christmas and Birthdays.
I'm sorry it looks a bit of a mess but I absolutely love this palette. It is my go to for a night out because of the amount of different coloured smokey eye looks you can achieve.

The palette has 12 shadows; 11 shimmery and 1 matte.
My plastic insert for this was plain so I'm not sure whether these colours are supposed to have names (the 'Au Naturel' palette does) or whether they are nameless.

These are how I'd describe the shadows by looking at them.
Top left to right: matte black, shimmery - purple, navy, royal blue, turquoise, and true green.

Bottom left to right: shimmery - lilac, pink, rust, bronze, moss green

All of the shimmery shades are really pigmented. These swatches are just one swipe down the arm. They are definitely buildable and blend really well together. I use the gold on the inner corner for most of my shimmery eye looks.
The matte black is a bit disappointing, I've definitely tried much better. The one in the Sleek 'Au Naturel' palette seems much more pigmented.

What's your go to palette for a night out?
