The Best Budget Eyeshadow Palette

I love eyeshadow and I have a slight thing with eyeshadow palettes. I’ve recently done a bit of a clear out and I’ve only kept the palettes I actually ‘need’ (like anyone actually NEEDS a n eyeshadow palette) . I have my beloved naked palette for neutrals, I gave away my number 2 and 3 as I didn’t touch them. I also have my customised z pallets for MAC, Makeup Geek and Anastasia individual shadows.

In terms of smaller pallets I have the smash box full exposure mini one (my favourite thing ever but discontinues and I’m nearly out of all the colours) and then I have this one which I’m talking about today!! At only £5.95 it’s the cheapest one of the bunch…





So this was an absolute bargain I found for £2.99 in TX MAXX, but it’s still only £5.95 on the website. It’s from W7 which is one of those brands you see in Peacocks or what ever and to be honest I’ve never paid much attention to them. It caught my eye because it looks exactly like the MAC new 9 shadow pallets (W7 do tend to rip of other brands,I have to say)

Colours The colours are right up my street. I love a good neutral for every day and this palette has all the best kind of neutrals. I love the bronze shade (the one bang in the middle) and the warm brown is a great dupe for my fave Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear. I feel like I’ll get use out of most of the shades etc for the weird kind of lilac taupe on the first row.

Quality Compared to other cheap eyeshadows I’ve tried it’s one of the best. Most you find in Boots can be really chalky with hardly any colour pay off. Compared to my high end shadows, it’s nearly there. These have a great pay off and they blend easily. I think the best thing about this is that it’s not TOO much. If you’re someone who doesn’t do bold looks or just like wearing colour for daytime  these are perfect as they are easy to control.

The thing I like the most about this is the fact is so small. It fits in any bag and can be used for day and night. You could even use some of the matte browns for eyebrow colours. If I go on a weekend away or a holiday, all I’ll take is this and a pretty loose glitter an thats it in terms of eye colour.

You can buy the W7 Arabian Nights 9 colour eye shadow palette here for £5.95

Have you tried this? What do you think?

    This looks an amazing dupe for MAC, like you said. So good, especially as it’s a fraction of the price. Great post lovely! 🙂 x
