No, that doesn’t mean stop buying new makeup altogether — we haven’t gone completely rogue — we just mean that it can be helpful to stay in the drugstore aisle of our favorite beauty retailers during the times when our bank accounts are crying for a little help. If you couldn’t agree more, then you’re in luck because there are so many brands and eyeshadow palettes that are both high quality and reasonably priced. Ahead, we rounded up seven of the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes that you (and your bank account) will be happy to know about. Each of these eyeshadow palettes retails for less $20.
