favourite 'drugstore/highstreet' eyeshadows♥

I know I waffle on about MAC all the time, but believe it or not I do LOVE 'drugstore' makeup. It probably makes up 50% of my collection. There are some great quality products out there, for great, affordable prices. Today I thought I would show you a few of my favourite eyeshadows. I may do a part two to this as I have a few more that I forgot to take pictures of. ooops.
Bourjois eyeshadow '74'. I believe these were re-formulated at some point last year. Now the majority of them are really smooth and very well pigmented. This particular brown is one of my favourites out of the entire line. £5.99 each, available here

MUA eyeshadows in shade 11 and 12. I love MUA eyeshadows, so I may do a post about them, as I think I have 10! For £1 these eyeshadows really are amazing, everyone should own at least one. Number 12 is very much like 'club' by MAC. Its that gorgeous brown with a green duochrome to it. beautiful. Shade 11 is a taupe. They are both incredibly pigmented and very smooth. As they are only £1 I didn't expect these to last above a couple of hours on my eyes but they did very well and lasted just as long as my beloved Urban decay and MAC eyeshadows!! £1 each available here

Accessorize eyeshadow -Olive. These eyeshadows feel creamy! They are so soft, are very easy to blend and they have a gorgeous finish. They have some gorgeous eyeshadows in this 'Illusions' range especially this one 'acid lime'. How gorgeous! £4 each available here

Accessorize merged eyeshadow - golden brown. This is a really pretty, shimmery chocolate brown with gold veining. As they are baked they can be applied wet for a dramatic look or dry for a soft, shimmery eye. £4.50 each available here

All about face - blue lagoon. This was a total random purchase when I was bored in Tesco. It is very, very bright and although I don't wear it very often, I would definately recommend these eyeshadows if you are on a budget, as they pack a good amount of pigmentation and blend fairly easily. £1.50 available at tesco.

Like I said, I have a few more favourites which I will probably blog about soon.

Thankyou for reading
