They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, so you're gonna drape those bad boys with some beautiful ass curtains. If your eyes are the windows, your eyeshadow is the curtains.
Now, when it comes to eyeshadow, there are literally so many different options. I mean, can I get an amen when I say you will 100% of the time walk out of Sephora with a million eyeshadow swatches on your arms? Amen. But the only thing is, high-end eyeshadow can be extortionately expensive. A six colour eyeshadow palette from Dior for $70? I don't think so.
So here we are, at it again, doing our research and finding the best dupes for super popular high-end eyeshadow palettes so you can save that mullah honey!

Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette // Anastasia Beverly Hills
Anastasia Beverly Hills has been killing it with all their makeup products since day one. In particular, their Modern Renaissance palette has received so much buzz among the beauty community because of its impeccable quality and impossibly beautiful shades.
NYX's products are almost always a great alternative to high-end makeup. The quality and pigmentation of their shadows are definitely worth the price and the colours in the Warm Rust eyeshadow palette come incredibly close to those in the Modern Renaissance palette. Though there are 14 shades in the Modern Renaissance palette and only 12 in the NYX palette, the pans are actually bigger in the latter. So we say the price cut is totally worth it.

Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette // Urban Decay
As you may already know, Urban Decay has decided to discontinue one of the beauty community's favourite eyeshadow palettes, the Naked Smoky Palette. With beautiful dark and smoky hues with earthy tones, it's sad to say goodbye to such a gorgeous palette. It's still available at some Sephora locations and some online vendors, but you'll need to get your hands on it fast.
35K - 35 Colour Koffee Eyeshadow Palette // Morphe
If you aren't able to snatch up the Urban Decay Smoky palette or simply don't want to pay $66 for it, Morphe has an AMAZING dupe! The colours are almost the same and there are also many more colour options in the Morphe 35K Koffee palette. They are highly pigmented and the shadows are super creamy. It definitely has our stamp of approval.

Naked3 Palette // Urban Decay
Another Urban Decay eyeshadow palette because we all know their palettes are so gorgeous and so tempting to buy. Naked 3 is another beauty favourite. With rose gold shades and chocolatey caramel browns, this palette is perfect for an everyday look or a sweet date night look.
Redemption Eyeshadow Palette in Iconic 3 // Makeup Revolution
Can we just take a minute to appreciate how similar the Iconic 3 palette is to the Naked3 at a fraction of the price? The Makeup Revolution palette is so incredibly similar, from the setup to the shades, it's almost the perfect dupe. The pigmentation in the Urban Decay palette is slightly better, but I mean for the price difference, it's worth it.

The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette // Too Faced
One of Too Faced's top selling eyeshadow palettes is their Chocolate Bar Eye Palette. The shades in this palette are a nice variety of mattes, shimmers and sparkles, and compliment many skin tones for a neutral eye look. And the best part? It actually smells like chocolate (as you probably already know).
Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette // Makeup Revolution
I don't even know how Makeup Revolution got away with this because their Chocolate Bar palette is almost exactly the same as the Too Faced palette. The colours are damn near identical with the exception of the shades Candid Violet and Marzipan that are slightly different. The quality of the palette is admittedly lower and more powdery than the Too Faced shadows, but with such a price difference you're getting your bang for your buck.

At $72, you know Dior is packing in some serious quality in the product and design. Dior's Eye Reviver palette has the perfect shimmery neutral shades that are incredibly pigmented and highly blendable. But let's be real, $72 could probably buy you a week's worth of Chipotle.
Catrice may be admittedly a little harder to locate at the drugstores, but it's so worth the hunt because the shades are absolutely stunning and so similar to the shade range of the Dior palette. The shadows are super pigmented and also very easy to blend. So if you can find this one, it's a keeper.

The Bronze Palette // Kylie Cosmetics
With so much hype over Kylie's makeup products, we couldn't end the list without adding her in the mix. The Bronze Palette has received a lot of love for its colours, but a bit of shade for its lack of pigmentation. There have been mixed reviews about the product, but if you're a fan of the Bronze Palette but just need a cheaper option, we have the dupe for you!
We've listed this guy once and we're gonna list him again because the Morphe eyeshadow palettes really are a great staple. There are so many shades in this palette that are super comparable in colour to the Kylie Bronze palette. Plus, there are way more colour options, it's cheaper, and the quality is arguably better. If you're looking for a combo of the Kylie Bronze palette and the Naked Heat palette, this is your best bet!
