With its trio of silky neutral shades accompanied by an icy shot of periwinkle, Prestige Eyeshadow Palette in Ready to Wear ($6.25) is dirt-cheap runway chic.

I can't say it enough: if you've got six bucks and some change, there's no better way to spend it than on some of the most superb eyeshadow the drugstore has to offer. 

Prestige Eyeshadow Palette in Ready to Wear includes four smooth, extremely pigmented shades. The color payoff is so fantastic that you get near full coverage in a single swipe. Check out these fab swatches; I love it when I don't have to layer and layer to get a shadow to show up in photographs:

Prestige Eyeshadow Palette in Ready to Wear includes a pearly cream shimmer, a pearlized periwinkle, a cool-toned pearlized medium brown, and a matte black with silver glitter. Each shade has a silky texture that applies well and blends easily without fallout. My favorite color in the quad is the periwinkle. It's a beautiful cool-toned shade that looks blue or purple depending on the light.

For this eye look, I applied the periwinkle blue/purple to my lid and blended it into the crease. I used the cool brown to contour in the outer corner. I highlighted the inner corner of my eye and browbone with the cream shade. I also applied the periwinkle below my lower lashline, which you can see peeking out toward to bottom of the picture. 

I don't wear much cool-toned eyeshadow, so I don't think I'll find myself reaching for Prestige Eyeshadow Palette in Ready to Wear every day. However, I'm so impressed with the quality that I won't be surprised if I find myself in the possession of Earthling or Surrey soon :)

Several readers have mentioned that they can't find Prestige Cosmetics at drugstores near them. If that's the case for you, I definitely recommend checking out Prestige's website if you're interested in trying their products. The quality is great and the product line is quite extensive, but the prices are so low that you don't have to worry about doing too much damage while shopping.  Don't you love it when your bank account and makeup bag can get along?

    1. Lol, I always feel like my blending looks so bad! One thing I do that helps is to blend after each step. Makes the process take longer but I get a better result.
