Budget Buttery Eye Shadow

Eyeshadow is a part of the routine that's hard (for some) to perfect.You need the right tools and, of course, the actual magic worker: the product. Often, drugstore eye products are cheap and chalky, but, I really feel like the 17 Eyeshadow (very creatively named: ''brown'' - couldn't they think of anything else?) is far from what is considered a typical budget option. ''Brown'' is a classic smokey sheeny light brown.

Basically, this 17 offering is buttery smooth and much more of a quality eyeshadow than you'd expect. Personally, I like using this over the Naked Basics palette to add a neutral sheen (there ain't no clumps of glitter in this) and complete the look. (The photo, in the packaging, is from when I first bought this weeks before Christmas..) No on line link - but, have a look at the other 17 eye products here.

Do you have any recommendations for budget eye shadows to try? I love to know in the comments!


  1. I always forget to check out Seventeen when I'm in Boots! This sounds like a great eyeshadow! I love the Sleek eyeshadow palettes which are quite cheap for the amount of shadows you get! :)

  3. Yeah, I think Seventeen is always an overlooked brand! The Sleek palettes seem interesting too - so many eyeshadows to choose from! X
