More fun and versatile than other types of eye makeup, eyeshadow is one of my favorite products to buy. Day or night, natural or dramatic, eyeshadow is dynamic and can work for any occasion. A good palette makes a world of difference, which is why we’ve picked some of the best and most affordable options. 


1. Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eye Shadow

With an average rating of 4 stars out of 5, Influensters said they adored this shadow because the colors are super easy to blend and they didn't have to worry about any fallout!
