The last drugstore eyeshadow palette post I did was right around the time Naked3 came out, I had wanted to give people options from the drugstore if they couldn’t get their hands on the uber expensive higher end palettes. Today is no different, I’m a ride or die drugstore kind of girl and I have tried almost every single drugstore eyeshadow palette that exists. It’s been a rough road because quite honestly some of them are just downright awful. No pigment, chalky AF, and just fallout for days. However, there are some real gems at the drugstore, brands have stepped up their game to compete with those higher end brands so let’s take a look at the best of the best.
SONIA KASHUK EYE COUTURE EYE ON NEUTRAL || You know we’re starting with a good neutral palette. I love a good neutral palette, I just can’t quit it. The formulas are extremely blendable with a velvety soft touch and superior color payoff.
PACIFICA POWER OF LOVE COCONUT INFUSED MINERAL EYESHADOW PALETTE || I originally reached for this because of that gorgeous navy blue at the bottom. SO FREAKING PRETTY. These shadows have a creamy finish that is unlike any drugstore eyeshadow palette I have seen before. An incredibly innovative formula that pushes natural makeup and mineral color to new bounds. Rich, lasting, creaseless eye shadows are infused with coconut water for a velvety, cream-like finish.
SONIA KASHUK 6 PAN EYE PALETTE COLOR EUPHORIA || I’ve found that when it comes to drugstore eyeshadow palettes color isn’t something you usually get the great color payoff with.
