Looking to glam up your eyeshadow game, but don’t want to shell out too much? While brands such as Urban Decay and Tarte Cosmetics sure have set the standards high, our beloved drugstore brands are putting up a tough fight with their tempting prices.

Here are our top five eyeshadow picks {all under INR 1,400}, which will not only up your smoky-eye game, but also prove to be guilt-free retail therapy.

#LBBTip: To get that intense smoky-eye look, invest in a good eye shadow primer too, as that helps those colours pop.

Known for producing affordable dupes of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, Makeup Revolution London has evolved by creating a range of palettes that are not only ultra-glamorous, but also easy on our pockets. While the colour pay-off of these eye shadows may not be as supreme as the higher-end brands, the variety of shades and textures for the price they offer make this product one of our top picks.

Their Bestsellers: Redemption Palettes and Salvation Palettes {Run Boy Run}, which comprise a balance of 18 shades {12 shimmers and 6 mattes}.
