Why are these my favorite eyeshadows?

On a daily basis most times I’ll do a warm/neutral makeup look. So that is why I put a lot of orange/copper/reddish/neutral tones in my everyday palette. Of course I love colorful looks, but I rarely do them on a daily basis.
Makeup Geek, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Coloured Raine and Coastal Scents are definitely some of my favorite eyeshadow brands. I love other brands, too but when it comes to color selection and what you get for the price these are my faves (e.g. I love Sugarpill eyeshadows when it comes to colorful eyeshadows or I love Natasha Denona eyeshadows but they are more expensive).
Quick review of each eyeshadow brand:
MAKEUP GEEK SINGLE EYESHADOWS: very pigmented, not the creamiest formula (a little more dry) but really blendable and easy to work with.

MAKEUP GEEK FOILED EYESHADOWS: very pigmented, very creamy, very blendable. Hands down my favorite foiled eyeshadow formula!!

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS: very pigmented, really creamy, very blendable and easy to work with. One of my favorite formula when it comes to matte eyeshadows.

COLOURED RAINE: very pigmented, really creamy, very blendable and easy to work with. Also one of my favorite formula when it comes to matte eyeshadows.

COASTAL SCENTS: formula is not that consistent throughout the eyeshadows, formula not as creamy (a little more dry), pretty pigmented (most of them), really affordable, very blendable and easy to work with.
