Hey what’s going guys! Today I’ll be sharing my hit or miss drugstore eyeshadow palettes as requested. I know how overwhelming it can be trying to find a good eyeshadow palette when you’re not able to test the products properly. Drugstore makeup can be a hit & miss thing but their palettes are definitely stepping up these days. So, I thought it might be helpful to talk with you guys some of the eyeshadow palettes that I’ve tried and I’d recommend if you’re on the fence to pick something from the drugstores!

Okay, let’s do this.
I’m going to talk on these three eyeshadow palettes which I picked up from my local drugstore not too long ago.
My girl friend introduced me to this eyeshadow palette. I like that it comes in a huge pan which means you get a lot more products from this palette. The best thing is it’s also travel friendly.
Covergirl TruNaked Palette is available in Nudes, Roses and Goldens and retails for CAD$12.97.
The Goldens shade contains warmer shades of beige, tans, olives and browns. If you’re someone looking for these color eyeshadows, this one is for you. It reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked palette actually. I love the color selection in this palette. They’re so pretty and all the shadows are so versatile. You can create a neutral to dramatic look with these.
There are three matte shades Creme, Cookie and Sierra while the rest are shimmers. I didn’t notice any difference in formula between the different finishes. They all feel the same to me.
They’re very easy to blend out and long lasting. It’s really pigmented while I also notice that it does kicks up some powders, I wouldn’t be too alarm by it. In fact, I found that I don’t need to dig into the pan that hard to pick up products.
I was quite impressed with the formula and quality. They apply so beautifully on eyes and on swatches. I’m loving this palette and it’s a hit for me.
Rimmel London launched these in three shade groupings which are golds and nudes, roses, and smoky shades. I picked this palette because I knew right away that this would be the most wearable choice out of the three palettes.
I have a fairly good track record with Rimmel eyeshadow as I happened be a fan of their Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow Palette.
Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Eyeshadow Contouring Palette comes housed in a plastic compact that contains 12 shades. The palette also contains two dual-sided sponge applicators.
Some textures are creamy and smoother than the other. Yes, I’m referring to the matte and shimmery shadows. The matte formula is silky smooth while the shimmery ones seems to be more textured with glittery feels to them. It’s not bad but it would be even better if they’ve have similar formula to the matte shadows.
I was hoping for a much better or improved formula but this doesn’t even come close. Sadly it didn’t bring me to the moon and back 😦 I don’t think the formula is up to par with the Glam Eyes Eyeshadow formulas they’ve done in the past. The shadows blends to sheer and grouping other colors together. It gave me a serious black eye look which certainly isn’t cute at all. That was a deal breaker.
I’m quite disappointed with this palette and wouldn’t recommend it. You can definitely find other brands for the same price point but you’re getting a better quality product.
I’m not going to do a full review here, at the risk of being repetitive but for those of you that didn’t see my original review, I’ll just keep it short and sweet by saying that this formula is quite impressive.
The Wet n Wild Au Naturel eyeshadows are richly pigmented, soft, and glides on so smoothly. To be honest, I really don’t have anything negative to say about this palette. For the price, quality and that it’s cruelty free, I say run to your nearest drugstore and pick one now.
Needless to say, this is a winner in my book.
I hope this review was helpful, and let me know if you’ve found any must-try shades from this line!
