As avid makeup lovers, it’s safe to say we’ve tried out a lot of products over the years.

From lipsticks, to eyebrow gels, to concealers and more, there are so many products out there, that choosing the right one can get pretty overwhelming. We’re willing to bet you’ve tried all the big brands—Urban Decay, MAC, Tarte… you name it. But have you ever ventured into the indie space? Trust us when we say it does not disappoint.

Keep reading for the five eyeshadow palettes from indie beauty brands that you need to know:

1. IBY Beauty Desert Vibes Eyeshadow Palette: $20

IBY Beauty took Rosehip Seed Oil and Coachella, and made a baby out of it. The end result is an array of intense, blendable and seriously beautiful shades. The colors included remind us of a west coast sunset and would look beautiful on all skin tones. Our absolute favorite shade is Make Out Sesh. Not only does it have a cute name, but it’s the perfect amount of cute and pizazz.
