Whether you’re big into eyeshadow or not, I think that a good staple everyone needs in their makeup collection is a good eyeshadow palette. What I mean by a good eyeshadow palette is one that is versatile and creates multiple makeup looks. The possibilities should be endless with a staple palette, meaning you can create a day to night look, a neutral look or a dramatic look for a night out. With so many palettes out on the market, it can be a bit overwhelming. Lucky for you, I’ve narrowed it down for you. Here is my list of eyeshadow palettes that cater to everyone’s needs and of course, budget.
By now, you’ve probably seen Urban Decay’s Naked eyeshadow palettes everywhere and it’s for great reason. The shadows included in their Naked palettes are easy to blend, the color payoff is real, and there are even mini versions made avaliable.
If you’re willing to splurge a little – this eyeshadow palette is worth every penny. There is no fall out and I believe it looks beautiful on all skintones. The shadows are so creamy and it includes chromes, mattes, metallics, and shimmers.
The most affordable out of the bunch is this palette from Lamora. The color payoff is great and there are 16 shadows included. You truly can’t beat the price. There are metallics, satins, and mattes.
I couldn’t do an eyeshadow palette feature without including NYX. I love all their eyeshadows for the creamy and easy to blend formula, but this palette is so versatile. There are 40 shadows in all colors and finishes.
Last but certainly not least, my favorite out of the bunch. This one is great for everyday! As someone who loves their neutral shades, the shadows in this palette are so creamy! I love that it includes both cool and warm tones. The shadows are packed with aloe and coconut oil – making them super buttery.
