If you want a quality eyeshadow palette, the first brand you should always check is Urban Decay. Ever since they launched their cult-favorite Naked Palette, the iconic beauty brand has been pumping out the best eyeshadow palettes to ever hit the shelves. And now, we’ve got something new from the beauty brand to be excited about: they’re expanding their Beached Collection with a new eyeshadow palette!
While no further details have been released in regards to the launch date and pricing, we know that this palette has 9 warm-toned shades that we’ll definitely be rocking all summer long. These beach themed hues scream fun in the sun and we can’t wait to test this bad boy out.
The only bummer is that Urban Decay palettes tend to be on the pricier side. Their palettes tend to start at the $40 price point and go up from there, so expect this palette to make a dent in into your bank account. If you’re a bargain beauty hunter like me, then you must know that cheaper alternatives are just a drugstore trip away! Check out some of our top favorite budget-friendly dupes to keep your beachside look on point without draining your savings.
This 10-shade palette from Pacifica is filled with sandy nudes and fun pastels that can tie any summer look together. These hues are super opaque and can shine through without smudging or fading even through the hottest of days. Whether you want a simply neutral shaded look or if you’re going for a bright and bold style, this palette definitely has you covered. And no need to worry about blending until your lids fall off because these shades glide on in a buttery, smooth texture that blend seamlessly together. And for under $20, Pacifica’s eyeshadows truly pack an unexpected punch. For such a bargain price, these richly pigmented shades have become one of our biggest summer beauty staples.
Why settle for 9 shades when you can get 100? This palette is basically all you ever need to create a beach-themed look and it’s a fraction of the cost of an Urban Decay palette! This is the ultimate palette for just about any look you ever want to create: go subtle and minimal with a nude shimmer or create a vibrant play on the smoky eye. This palette is also great for those of you with sensitive skin since it’s phthalate-free, paraben-free, and aluminum-free. And for our animal lovers out there, this palette is also cruelty-free! So, let out your inner MUA with this addictive palette. We guarantee that this will become your next go-to eyeshadow product.
Wet n’ Wild is one of our favorite drugstore beauty brands for their amazing quality at such low cost. Their 10-shade Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette in Not a Basic Peach is basically a clone of the upcoming Urban Decay palette, and it’s just under $5. This filled with the same warm, toasted shades, and even includes that gorgeous ocean blue pigment that we’re totally obsessed with. These shades leave a stunning shimmer on your lids, which makes it perfect for a big night out on the boardwalk. Don’t forget to pack this beauty staple on your next tropical vacay!
If you’re going for an aquatic look this season, then you better grab this palette. NYX Professional Makeup is famous for its cult-classic products and this palette definitely does not disappoint.
