11 Drugstore Eyeshadow Palettes That Rival Luxury Brands — PHOTOS

Luxury makeup brands, I'm going to let you finish, but the drugstore has some of the best eyeshadow palettes of all time. It's true! In the past few years, many drugstore makeup brands have been pumping out incredible eye makeup palettes. Whether it's due to their bold pigmentation, creamy textures, or wide shade range, many of these palettes are killing it in the beauty world.

What's great about these select palettes is that their don't sacrifice quality in the name of price. I've tried all the shadows in this list, and they come across beautifully on the skin, while staying budget-friendly. In short, you won't have to spend a fortune to add these shadows to your collection. In fact, most drugstore palettes are cheaper than $20. For less what you pay at typical happy hour, you can grab a kit with approximately one bajillion shade options. It's an easy way to add to your makeup collection without feeling guilty. These palettes are worth every last penny (and there won't be that many). Wondering what palettes should be catching your eye?
