So that's my Top 10!
I absolutely adore Makeup Geek shadows and think the quality is really nice and comparable to high end brands. Honestly, I grab these over my UD palettes on a regular basis. They're on par with Anastasia and the foiled shadows beat any shimmer shadow I've ever touched. 
Plus, the regular shadows as well as the duochromes are $6 each. The foiled shadows are $10 each. They're really affordable and I can't recommend them enough. They're made in the USA, talc free, and cruelty free.
You can buy them from
