Budget Friendly Eyeshadows Worth Trying

When it comes to eyeshadows I often find myself reaching for some high end option however there are definitely some great drugstore ones worth trying. Instead of focusing on palettes I thought I would mention some quads that are perfect for fitting in a makeup bag.
Budget Friendly Eyeshadows Worth Trying
Collection Work The Colour Eye Palette in Nude
Collection Work The Colour Eye Palette in Nude (review) - £3.99.
Now this one isn't actually a quad but whilst mentioning budget friendly eyeshadows I had to mention this one. The packaging is the best but it does the job. The palette has an amazing range of neutral, lots of light shades and some darker colours. These shades are nicely pigmented and if you're just starting out in makeup or want to try some new looks on a budget this one is definitely worth trying. 
Soap & Glory Lid Stuff in What's Nude
Soap & Glory Lid Stuff in What's Nude (review) - £10.00.
An old favourite (as you might be able to tell) but a good one. I always find myself going back to this quad. The packaging is sturdy, the shades work so well together and are creamy, pigmented and blend really nicely. The three matte shades are some of the best drugstore matte shadows i've found. You can get this quad in 2 other shades but this one is definitely the stand out.
NYC Quarto Eyeshadow Best Of Broadway
NYC Quarto Eyeshadow Best Of Broadway - £2.99. 
This one was a bit of a surprise, I heard a few good things about it so I tracked it down and it is definitely a hidden gem. If you prefer taupe/purple tones in your eye makeup this one is definitely a must try. Again each shade is nicely pigmented, the second lightest shade is lovely applied all over the lid and the purple shade in the crease. For this price, the quality is definitely there.
Rimmel London HD 5 Pan Eyeshadow Brixton Brown
Rimmel London HD 5 Pan Eyeshadow Brixton Brown - £6.99.
This was another palette that got a lot of attention recently. Pigmentation wise it isn't the best, the light brown shade takes a few application to show up nicely. Although saying that the shades do work well together, you can get a few different looks from it. My favourite thing is the addition of the cranberry shade in the middle, in the colder months to add some warmth and colour to a simple brown eye look.

So those are some eyeshadows I would definitely recommend giving a go if you're looking to save a few pennies. The stand out for me is definitely the Collection one as it is such good value for money. What are some of your favourite affordable eyeshadows?
