Good Things Come in Small Packages

Hi loves!

No, I’m not talking about a little black or turquoise box that costs a fortune; I’m talking about mini eyeshadow pallets.

You would be hard pressed to find a regular size, good quality, brand name eyeshadow pallet for less than $50. Don’t get me wrong, I love Urban Decay; but currently their full sized Naked pallets retail for $54. No thank you!

I am a teacher on a budget, therefore I have found my favorite brand name eyeshadow pallets for less by purchasing the mini travel sizes.

Keep reading to see my favorite, affordable, name brand pallets.


Huda Beauty | Mauve Obsessions

6 matte and 3 shimmer pigments ranging from dusty rose and deep red, to a rich plum color. With this pallet, you can take create a daytime look as well as a sultry night look. A similar full size pallet from Huda Bauty usually costs about $65. Another plus, all of their eyeshadows are paraben free.

Too Faced | Natural Eyes

This product has been redesigned recently and does not have the same packaging as mine, however it is the exact same product. This pallet comes with 9 natural colors ranging from pink to brown hues. This is one of my favorites because this product also comes with a cheat sheet to show you how to apply each look in the pallet.


Urban Decay | Naked Basics

This pallet has 6 matte tones that can be built up or applied sparingly for both day and night looks. The mini Naked Basics eyeshadow line has 2 different pallets, Naked Basics and Naked2 Basics. The original Naked Basics ranges from light cream tones to black. The Naked2 Basics pallet has cream colored pigments to dark brown tones. Both pallets are only $29 each!
