Top 11 Cheap Eyeshadow Palettes Available in India with Reviews and Prices
Which is the most used makeup product in your collection? My eye shadow palettes are the most abused because i use eye shadows every single day. I love how they frame the eyes and add a touch of drama via my eye makeup. I do not do colourful eye shadows. It is always neutral shades for me. However, whatever might be your inclination, there are good quality affordable eye shadow palettes available in all brands these days. One thing to keep in mind is that many palettes contain very similar colours so keep in mind that you do not buy same colours again and again. We have compiled the best eye shadows in our Indian market which can be bought both online and in stores. I have not included MAC and Bobbi Brown etc here because I wanted to keep it very cheap and in budget.

I saved this one for the last as this is one palette which knocks it right off the park in all departments. Fun quirky packaging with 12 diverse shades makes this palette a total winner. This is also one of the dupes of UD Naked Palettes and if you want to own one neutral palette, this should be the one. This is expensive compared to the other palettes but The Balm products are great in quality.
Another matte palette from The Balm Cosmetics is equally good and contains gorgeous shades. Balm products are available on many websites which ship to India. Okay its affordable in US but somehow the websites here are charging such high prices for this one. Why!
Price: 3708 INR
So these are the best eye shadow palettes in the Indian market in terms of quality and price. All these palettes contain great shades suited for Indian skin tones. Palettes provide great value for money because you get more shades in lesser price. When you buy 4 or 12 individual shades, they cost a lot more than the price of the palette. Also all the shades are coordinated so you can create multiple look with one palette. I only have one problem with all palettes that i have never seen a palette with one good brush provided with it.
All these brushes are totally waste and this makes another good eye shadow brush absolutely necessary for using these shadows. It would be great if these palettes come with a usable brush of good quality. I use my MAC 217 brush to apply and blend all eye shadows. It is one amazing brush for all eye makeup. Which is your most used eye shadow palette? Are you a neutral or a color lover? Or any single eye shadows you absolutely love? Let us know in the comments.
