Drugstore eyeshadows can be found in single shadows, trios, quads, and full palettes. Many companies offer a variety of all of these options depending on your needs. Most companies offer matte, shimmer, and pearl shades in a wide range of colors from neutrals to bolder, brighter colors. Many include a sponge applicator, but most buyers find that standard makeup brushes do a better job applying shadows. Pigmentation and texture can vary – some shadows have a creamy texture that’s easy to blend and offer a lot of color payoff. Others are more powdery and only offer a subtle color without the use of primer or multiple layers of shadow.
