The Best Eyeshadows to Pick Up From Sephora When You've Only Got $20 to Spend
While having a bottomless beauty bag just a pipe dream, picking out new eyeshadow doesn't need to take loads of space . . . or cost like it does. Of course, that's not to say we wouldn't make room for a luxe palette, but sometimes we want to try a new color without a huge monetary commitment.
Luckily, there are dozens of eyeshadow options at Sephora that cost $20 or less — including solo shades, liquid tubes, and even palettes. No matter your textural tastes, there are smooth matte hues, smoky metallics, and plenty of shimmers.
Check out the ones we want to swipe — and swipe on — ahead.
