With over 2,000 powder eyeshadows (loose and pressed) tested and reviewed (that includes shades found only in palettes) in 2019, there’s a lot to go through! In the under $10 category, the two heavy players are ColourPop and Sydney Grace, both of which have fairly consistent, better-performing formulas and in volume. Sydney Grace in particular as I did the majority of my reviews for the brand in 2019 (only 28 in 2018). These include eyeshadow singles only, whether permanent or limited edition, but they had to be available individually to count toward this list!
If you’re unfamiliar with how I like to do my year-end favorites, here’s the low down: I pull from the products I reviewed in 2019, regardless of whether they were new, limited edition, or an established range I’ve only just gotten around to reviewing. These are personal favorites, so they may or may not be the highest rated products reviewed during the year (though they will tend to be better rated, naturally!). (You can check out best of 2018 if you missed it.)
