A Budget-Friendly Eyeshadow Palette


With the introduction of the L'Oreal La Nude palettes and the Maybelline palettes, the drugstore is making strides in providing affordable and relatively great-quality eyeshadow palettes to the masses. 

Enter a new player into the game: Forever 21.

I don't think these palettes are new at all, but they're new to me. Forever 21 has a pretty big selection of makeup, so I picked some up last weekend to try out. They carry three palettes: Nude, Natural, and Smokey. Out of all three, my personal favorite is Nude. It's Forever 21's answer to Urban Decay's Naked 3 palette, and the colors are very comparable. The quality? For a $7.90 palette, it's pretty stinkin' good. You certainly won't get the buttery quality of a high-end palette, but for the most part, the pigmentation is pretty good and the blendability is workable. 

If you're a beginner to makeup, if you have a pre-teen or teenager, or if you're just looking to keep makeup costs down, this is a great palette to try out!
