Sometimes it can be hard to find a great quality eyeshadow at the drugstore, but these are my top three favorites that are inexpensive, yet perform like high end shadows.
** The swatches are just the eyeshadow- no primer and no setting spray!**
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows ($7-8)
These are swatches of a few of the shades I own. My favorite shade is Amber Rush (middle shade). This is the shadow that everyone raves about because it is just that amazing. Whenever I use this shadow I almost can’t believe that it is drugstore! These shadows are extremely pigmented and so soft and buttery they almost feel like cream shadows, but they are a pressed powder. Love these!!
Maybelline Color Tattoos ($6-7)
Again, just some swatches of two of my most used shades from the Color Tattoo range. These are cream shadows and I love using them as a base for my other shadows. They enhance the pigment and stay on all day without creasing. I like to use the matte Creamy Beige shade as an eyeshadow base and it works just as well as a MAC Paint Pot. Both the shimmery and matte shades from the “Leathers” line are amazing!
Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows ($4-5)
And lastly, these Milani shadows are to die for! I will be honest though, not all shades from the line are created equally, but these three are my favorite shades (Bella Emerald, Bella Espresso, Bella Champagne). These are very pigmented and do feel very smooth and creamy. They also blend very well. I do prefer to use these over a base or with setting spray on my brush, but they are outstanding on their own as well.
