We easily cough up our paychecks for the latest skin-care innovations
or the newest K-beauty must-haves
, but when it comes to eyeshadow, we’re wise to the game. We know that the drugstore market is just as good (or at times, better
) than the luxury products available. The biggest challenge is figuring out which palettes are worth plucking off the shelves — especially when you can't swatch them on your hand like you would in a department store.
We went ahead and solved the problem (and then some) with a little help from our favorite celebrity makeup artists. Ahead, find our 19 favorite drugstore palettes for under $20 — whether you're looking for some smoky-eye inspiration or a jewel-toned kit worthy of your next night out.
