Best Drugstore Makeup: The Eyeshadow Edition


There isn’t a shopping trip that goes by that I don’t stroll the makeup aisles of my favorite drugstores. You never know when I may come across a new brand or find a shade that I suddenly remember I don’t have. It drives my husband crazy for sure but in the end, I’ve learned which products work and over the years I definitely have my favorites.

Out of the types of makeup I shop for the most, eyeshadow is in the top two. When I’m looking for a new one to add to my arsenal, these are the brands I stick to and here’s why!

1. Maybelline® Eye Studio® Color Tattoo® 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow.

My favorite cream eyeshadow ever with a rich pigment and lasting power that’s almost unheard of with a drugstore brand.

2. Scandaleyes Shadow Stick

When I need bold eye color but running really low on time, I break out these shadow sticks. In the time it takes to color inside my crease lines, I have rich color that doesn’t streak, crease, or fade.

3. Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Quad Shadow

The packaging has gotten a makeover since the last time I bought this palette but it was totally worth it. It’s easier to get to the long lasting and totally gorgeous shades.

4. Wet-n-Wild Color Icon Trio

This brand can be very hit or miss but I found that the Color Icon Trio is the best eyeshadow they have. Pefect for the makeup newbie with placement etched right in the shadow along with great color.

5. Milani Runway Eyeshadow

I love these baked eyeshadow minis, with the ability to be used with water for even deeper color. I seriously need to get more of them in my life.

6. Maybelline® Eye Studio® Color Plush® Silk Eyeshadow Quad

Not a shocker that Maybelline is on here again. Love the pigment this quad delivers with two matte and two shimmer shades that can create a wide variety of looks.

7. CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Eyeshadow

When all else fails, you can never go wrong with CoverGirl. The collection of three complimentary shades give you the day look you want every time.
