Single Eyeshadows (Under $10) | 2021 Editor’s Favorites



While the majority of powder eyeshadows are still found in palettes, I did manage to review just over 225 single eyeshadows this year that came in for under $10. There are so many fantastic single eyeshadows, so it was difficult narrowing them down, and I feel like I still left so many off the list that I loved, but here are 27 that really caught my eye this past year.

If you’re unfamiliar with how I like to do my year-end favorites, here’s the low down: I pull from the products I reviewed in 2021, regardless of whether they were new, limited edition, or an established range I’ve only just gotten around to reviewing. These are personal favorites, so they may or may not be the highest rated products reviewed during the year (though they will tend to be better rated, naturally!). (You can check out the best of 2020 posts if you missed last year’s.)

Your Year in Review: Single Eyeshadow Edition

I thought it would be interesting to read through how readers used products throughout the year, what favorites emerged, what products fell by the wayside… so, if you want to join in, copy and paste the questions below and add your answers via a comment!

Feel free to break it down by price (under $10) if that makes sense to you since there is an over $10 post coming up.

  • What was your most used single eyeshadow? Least used?
  • Will you repurchase it or will you look for something new?
  • Was single eyeshadow a big part of your routine in 2021?
