Affordable Single Eyeshadows Worth Picking Up

Single eyeshadows often get lost in the sea of palettes that I have tucked away in my drawers. To be honest, it takes a lot for me to make the extra effort to look for a single eyeshadow as opposed to just dipping back into the palette I'm using, but I have a fair few singles that I'll make the extra effort for. I thought it was high time I do a little round up, as I've been reaching for a lot of them so much lately! These are all affordable picks, so hopefully there should be something in here for everyone!

Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow in Satin Corset - I got this a few months back and it's my go-to for when I want to do something very nothing-y with my makeup. It also makes for a pretty gorgeous inner corner and brow bone highlight! The pigmentation is great and it's so super affordable. Definitely want to pick up a few more shades!

Catrice Absolute Eye Colour Mono in Gold Out! - I don't know why, but the packaging of this is so aesthetically pleasing to me! You can't see it so much in the photos, but it's a little single in a clear plastic compact and to me it looks kinda like a lab sample. Just me? Alright! I love Catrice for affordable makeup as the quality tends to be so stellar for the price point. This is no exception: the pigmentation is great, it's blendable and it lasts well throughout the day.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in La La - Yes, I'm obsessed with Colourpop, blahblahblah. If you're into metallic eyeshadow, then this is one to check out! It's a gorgeous rose gold colour and it looks lovely paired with warm eyeshadows and a nude lip. A* for pigmentation, longevity and just all-round greatness.

H&M Eyeshadow in Russet Rose - I had a little love affair with H&M beauty last year and I've let the products kind of fall to the wayside. This is an eyeshadow I remember using so much and I've decided to crack it out again this year. The colour is one I haven't seen much around the drugstore (or in more affordable makeup lines) and is essentially a super warm-toned orangey-brown. It looks so lovely with blue eyes and the shadow quality really is fab.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Wattles - Another one from Colourpop. This is one of those shades that looks a bit underwhelming in the pan, but once you blend it onto the lids, it looks absolutely stunning. It's a tricky shade to describe so I took to the Colourpop website for a more apt description. According to them, this is a "dusty satin beige pink", which is really just a lot of adjectives but hey ho. It has a certain hue to it that makes it ultra-flattering and a fab shade to use by itself as a wash of colour on the lids. Highly, highly recommend!

See? Single eyeshadows don't have to be boring! These five are worth cracking out separately and all for a pretty darn affordable price! Let me know if you have any single eyeshadow favourites I should check out! Have a fab weekend and happy Friday!
