There are a lot of nude eye palettes out there, and I own plenty of them, but the Physician's Formula Nude Shimmer Strips are the first ones that I've found that are this affordable. They are about $10.95 each, adorably packaged in a lace-look case, and totally portable. They are available in 4 shades: Natural Nude, Warm Nude, Classic Nude, and Smoky Nude. Each has 9 colors, which are all placed together in 3 fool-proof "trios" so you don't have to do any guesswork about which colors go with which. Each palette is placed in the 3 trios so that you can get a natural look, a playful/romantic look, and a more dramatic/smoky-type look. But feel free to mix all the shades up to create your own custom look because once you feel the silky texture of the colors, you'll definitely want to play. The shades can be used dry (like how they are swatched on my arm below), or they can be used wet to intensify the colors.
