I post beauty stuff and whatever else comes to mind! My Instagram is thissmallgirltalks (follow for updates)

This is going to be a new series of posts on my blog, and the title really says it all, so I don't need to go into much detail about what I'm going to be writing about...

Basically, I will be giving my top three {insert type here} and tell you a little about each product. The best part? Every single product will be under £10.00 and drugstore!

Eyeshadow is my favourite part of makeup, so I decided I would start with that first and foremost.

Let's begin!

THREE:

Brand: Makeup Revolution

Palette Name: Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade

Price: £8.00

Out of 5: 4/5

MAKEUP REVOLUTION, ULTRA EYE CONTOUR LIGHT & Shade
MAKEUP REVOLUTION, ULTRA EYE CONTOUR LIGHT & Shade

Description: This palette is an unapologetic dupe for the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour palette. An accurate dupe, it copies the layout of the shadows and their colour, but not their pigmentation, nor the packaging of the original product.

This palette, however, does have good pigmentation if you work with the shadows the tiniest bit.

Free to use how you want, but at the same time keeping the idea of quads (that are supposed to be used together), this would be good for a beginner who is just getting into eyeshadows.

There is the tiniest bit of fallout, but I have worn these shadows for at least seven hours in one day, so their lasting power without fading is very good!

They are quite blendable too.

TWO:

Brand: I Heart Makeup

Palette Name: Salted Caramel

Price: £7.99

Out of 5: 4.75

I HEART MAKEUP, SALTED CARAMEL PALETTE
I HEART MAKEUP, SALTED CARAMEL PALETTE

Description: A dupe for the Too Faced Semi Sweet palette, this cheaper version wows me. Though I have never tried the Too Faced version on my eyes, I have now swatched it on my hand, and know for sure that the quality isn't that much better than this drugstore version.

This palette's pigmentation is super for almost all of the shades. The quality is unbelievable for the price, honestly. The pigment even smells of caramel, which is an added bonus.

And how pretty is the packaging? I love it, as it is so distinct as to which palette it is, and unique, as I've not seen anything else like it before.

There is the tiniest bit of fade if you wear the shadows for more than six hours without reapplying, of course, but there is next to no fallout on the eye.

They're very blendable, also, especially the mattes.

ONE:

Brand: Makeup Obsession

Palette Name: N/A

Price: £2.00 (per shadow)

Out of 5: 4.8

Makeup Obsession are my new obsession. A new brand, they have yet to make a name for themselves, but they will, because they are just so amazing!

Every shade that I have is utterly pigmented for £2.00, and you can collect an array of colours. For a very cheap price, you get quite a large pan of pigment too, which is generous.

Another thing that is also quite cool, is that you can make your own palette with any of the eyeshadows in their range, which is good for beginners, as you can experiment with which shades you like and what works for you.

They have no fallout, and last a reasonable amount of time without fading (about nine hours).

They blend beautifully together too, I have no complaints there.

Of course, I am only speaking for the mattes, I have no idea about the shimmers, but I imagine that they are similar.
