Besides lipsticks, I’m also a huge fan of eyeshadow palettes because of the multiple colour combinations you can mix and match to make your eyes shine. Some of my favourite ones are from Etude House, in part due to the affordability, as well as the lovely palette colours.
This was my first ever eyeshadow palette, and I bought it at a time when I was obsessed with peach/apricot colours.
This is a 10 color eye shadow like a glass of juice comes in various textures for different expression.

Neutral shades like the ones in this palette are easy to work with, especially for beginners to eyeshadow.
My personal favourites are Orange Bianco & Grape Fruit Tart. I use Orange Bianco as a base, or when I don’t want so much focus on my eye makeup, and Grape Fruit Tart for a pop of colour on days that I’m aiming for a pink-based makeup style.
Other shades like Raw Cacao and Muscle Mania are great as eyeliner alternatives – simply swipe them the same you would with eyeliner. Bubble Bath also works well on the waterline to make your eyes look bigger.
While the colours are gorgeous, the colour payoff and staying power aren’t as amazing. If no eyeshadow primer is used, it is highly unlikely that your eyeshadow will still be as visible as it was at the beginning of application.
10 highly blendable and lovely eyeshadow shades for less than, say, a Naked Palette, seem like a fantastic deal. However, you might end up having to keep reapplying your eyeshadow throughout the day if you want your eyes to look as great as they did at the beginning, and this is Juice Bar’s biggest flaw.
I would highly recommend this if you’re new to eyeshadow and want to experiment with easy shades, or simply looking for eyeshadow that would work well with most people’s skin tones.
