Top 5 Neutral Drug Store Eyeshadow Palettes 2013!

Every girl needs a neutral eyeshadow palette in her life. Today’s woman is busy and we’re always on the go, making the versatility of a neutral palette a must. I think most women end up wearing neutral colors a lot more then they would ever wwear brighter shades like blue, green and purple! I’ve found that reaching for a neutral eye shadow palette can help create a quick look that works no matter what your plans are for the day.

Here is a list of some of the best drug store neutral eye shadow palettes I’ve worked with this year.


1. Revlon Colorstay Quad Palettes: Addictive

When looking for a good quality eyeshadow you want one that is pigmented and will stay put. Revlon’s Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow is SUPER silky smooth in texture and very easy to blend. I love the neutral color palette with easy to use browns and beige which work great for day looks.

2. NYX: The Natural Palette


Launched this year, NYX Natural Shadow Palette is truly a budge friendly palette. NYX shadows are amazing quality (you’d never guess this is a drugstore palette by the quality) – they have great color payoff and have great pigmentation. 6 great shades! What’s not to love?!

3. Rimmel London Glam Eye Shadow Trio in Spices


This palette is a good neutral palette that is warmed up with some pink. Its a great wash of color for those looking for a soft simple shadow look that gives a barely there natural eye. The warmness of this palette works well on Arab and Asian skin tones. Its long lasting and for the price is a great quality.

4. Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Collection: Sunbaked Neutrals


This is another great palette to own. 8 super pigmented shadows which are comparable to many of the high end brands. What I love about the color palette most is that there are some olive greens and peaches which add some diversity to the typical neutral palette selection. A very versatile palette which you’ll be able to create a ton of different looks with.

Available at Center Point & Boots

5. L’oreal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Eye Shadow Quads: Aishwarya’s Green


If its named after Ashwariya Rai then YES It has to be good. L’oreal’s Studio Secrets Professional Eye Shadow Quad is a great set of everyday neutrals that work well with OUR skin tones. The numbering system takes out the guesswork of choosing the right shades and placement of the color.

6. Sonia Kashuk! Eye Couture Eye Palette



This palette is true eye candy! Sonia Kashuk does it again with this Eye Couture Eye Palette in Eye on Neutral 02. Its a great palette to own because firstly they are all matte colors and come in an easy to go case. Take it in your bag, travel or keep it at home it will always be handy. Use this palette for natural day looks to sultry smoky eye evening looks. Good buy.

You won’t find this brand in the Middle East but its available online: $19.99 (its a good one to know so I included it the list)
