Top 16 of 2016: Best Powder Eyeshadows $10 & Under

You definitely don’t have to splash out to get a quality eyeshadow, even when you’re buying shades individually! (This is especially true with more shimmery formulas.) Normally, I use $15 as my marker being budget-friendly and higher-end, but for single eyeshadows, I felt like the $10 mark was more appropriate. It’s great to see more brands using more cream-like powder formulas, which seem to yield great adhesion to the lid (even without primer) along with intense pigmentation!
