Here at the Clozette Headquarters, we're basically obsessed with everything and anything makeup, especially if they come in tons of colours like eyeshadow palettes! Usual favourites are neutral and nude palettes, but occasional neon and bright palettes are also favoured. However, we realised that these multiple shades also come with a hefty price tag, so we found better alternatives for you that are super affordable yet effective in creating a variety of looks!
Here are our top 5 favourite eyeshadow palettes from the drugstore!
Sleek Makeup Sunset i-Divine Palette
To start this list, we have Sleek Makeup Sunset i-Divine Palette. It consists of twelve eyeshadows that are intensely pigmented and long-wearing. It is said that applying these to bare lids get bright, true-to-pan colours!
E.L.F. Cosmetics Little Black Beauty Book, Cool edition
E.L.F Cosmetics is certainly one of the best brands in the drugstore and their eyeshadow palettes are a great choice for starters and pros alike. The Little Black Beauty Book, Cool edition is a mix of pastels and dark colours for a classic smokey eye look. We also recommend their 48-piece palette for tons of options with great pigmentation for experimenting with various looks.
Wet n Wild Coloricon 5-Pan
Wet n Wild's reformulated eyeshadow colours contain macadamia seed oil and is paraben free. The 5-pans are an absolute must-have as they adhere to a certain feel depending on the colour selection. Plus, they come with labels so you can easily sport that smokey look. If you love matte, these pans are definitely a bang for your buck!
Catrice Absolute Rose
Catrice came up with their Absolute Line and although almost all their palettes are commendable, we can't help but favour their Absolute Rose palette. Consisting of soft nudes and trendy rosé shades of mattes and shimmers, these colours are perfect for the girly-girl in you.
Maybelline The Nudes
If you happen to pass by the drugstore and find one of these, then it's your lucky day! This palette runs out fast, so if it's staring straight back at you--don't hesitate to get it! Aside from its colour selection that are a perfect mix of mattes and shimmers, these neutral shades are also super-blendable and last for up to 12 hours. Talk about the dream palette on a budget!
