I'm Pretty Cheap When It Comes to Eye Shadow—These Drugstore Picks Are Divine
There are plenty of beauty and skincare products I will gladly splurge on. A $166 serum? Sure, why not (especially when my Who What Wear colleagues give rave reviews). Night creams and moisturizers to revive my tired skin? Yes, please. A skincare tool I've been coveting? Add to cart. A foundation that looks like I'm wearing zero makeup? You got me!
But while there are plenty of beauty items I don't mind spending my hard-earned cash on, there are some that I'm extremely frugal about, like body lotion, haircare products, and eye shadow.
Listen, I know the luxe, high-end eye shadows have some great qualities and benefits—they can be highly pigmented for a dramatic effect, they can last a long time, and they don't smudge. But I've found some affordable drugstore options that are just as good for me (and for my wallet).
Take a look at some of my favorites below and others I'm adding to my wish list.
