The ones I bought are cheap. The colors don't show on me well and they easily wipe off. What's a good brand of shadows?

I love MAC... I recently bought Urban Decay and I am really happy with them.

UD is great for shadows- the "naked" palettes are a good place to start exploring the brand. Stila also has some great shadows and a few versions of neutral palettes like "in the light" and "in the know". Nyx is a good cheaper brand that has good pigmentation too, but get the single shadows over the palettes. Also invest in a good eye primer!

I have used Urban Decays Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance. UD is slightly better....but right now I am using the primer pot from Nyx (white) It's really great - and cheap! The white colour is good for making colours particularly vibrant. I actually use UDPP first to control my oily eyelids and then use Nyx's primer pot on top.

Nyx for drugstore, or Sonia kashuk at target...I also like some cover girl shadows.

Otherwise I love MAC, urban decay, and Lorac

I LOVE urban decay shadows. And for primers/bases, I use maybelline color tattoos. They do not crease on me at all and they're super affordable. I also love the NYX white base that jellybean mentioned :) but it's just a base, not a primer so it will crease.
