12 of the Best Drugstore Eye Shadow Palettes Money Can Buy

As someone who values options in every aspect of life, eye shadow palettes are my jam. After all, palettes make different color ranges available in one place, allowing you to make a game-time decision about what kind of look you're going for without rifling through your makeup case in search of loose singles. But a lot of people ask me if price is a determent of the quality. My answer every single time? Absolutely not. In fact, some of my favorite eye shadow palettes are ones you can find at a price that will barely make a dent in your wallet.

Gone are the days when drugstore formulas would be chalky or have barely any color pay-off. These days, the palettes hiding on the shelves at your local CVS or Rite-Aid are filled with bright, richly-pigmented shades that are silky, blendable, and expensive-feeling (and looking). Whether your prefer a palette full of everyday neutrals or think the brighter, the better, there's a drugstore eye shadow palette for you that won't leave you feeling disappointed. Scroll down to see 12 of the best drugstore eye shadow palettes on the market right now.
