The drugstore beauty aisle is already one of our favorite places to unwind after a long day—consider it an alternate form of therapy, if you will. But right now we’ve got seven more reasons head to the Mother Land. From bold gem tones to soft roses, we found seven drugstore eyeshadow palettes worth stocking up on. Consider this the permission you need to hoard.
CoverGirl TruNaked in Roses ($15, walmart.com)
We’ve already been a fan of CoverGirl’s newest palette for a while now, but this particular range of rosy tones is a must to create that perfect—and very on trend—pink lid a la Gigi Hadid. If this doesn’t scream spring, we don’t know what else does.
NYX Cosmetics Full Throttle Shadow Palette in Color Riot ($10, nyxcosmetics.com or Target stores)
We know these aren’t traditional eyeshadow colors, but hear us out. This combo of terra cotta hues and oranges are our go-tos for mastering that glow-from-within-look. Can you say beach babe?
NYC New York Color Lovatics by Demi Eyeshadow Kit ($4, walmart.com)
When Demi Lovato speaks, we listen. So when the singer gave her seal of approval to this palette from her collab with NYC Cosmetics, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. And lucky for us, with everything from daily neutrals to nighttime kohls, this 12-shade palette lived up to expectation.
Essence How to Make Eyes Bright Palette ($10, target.com)
We were first drawn to this palette, we admit, because of the adorable packaging. But we stayed because of the six versatile shades offered. Consider this a must for daily springtime wear.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Shadow & Liner Disco Glam in Glam Nude ($10, drugstore.com)
Who says pastels are the only spring essential? We’re coveting this high-intensity shimmer palette to recreate that ’70s glam rock look that’s been working its way onto the catwalk. I mean, have you seen that purple?
Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty Smokey Eye Palette in Shadow Box ($25, target.com)
Not only does this latest palette from beauty guru Sonia Kashuk have an amazing message behind it, but it’s quite possibly the most wearable palette we’ve seen in a while. Plus, with four labeled shadow pairings, you’re geared up for success. Total knockout, indeed.
Maybelline The Rock Nudes Eye Shadow Palette ($13, cvs.com)
Between the icy white, matte plum, and shimmering kohl, it’s hard to pick a favorite in this 12-shade palette. With each hue blendable and pairable, we don’t foresee a single shade going untouched.
