Holiday palettes are one of my favorite wintertime indulgences. All of your necessities packed neatly into a little box! The warm, decadent colors get me into the spirit of the season (it’s just too soon for Christmas music, so these will have to do!). With all of the holiday rocking I plan to do, I’ll be grateful to have a mini beauty salon in my bag. These all-in-ones are great stocking stuffers for friends, too, so be sure to pick up a few for Secret Santa.
Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Caviar and Oyster Palette: Bobbi Brown’s holiday collection always impresses! As the name suggests, these shimmery shades are deliciously opulent. Santa packs eight eye shadows (a good mix of soft and dark) and a luminescent blush into the two-floor palette.
At Bobbi Brown for $75.
Dior Holiday Eye Palette Set: It’s all about the eyes! Dior’s limited edition provides you with everything you need for the perfect smoky eye. It includes shadow, liner, and even the normally palette-shy mascara.
At Nordstrom for $65.
Guerlain “Liu Holiday Collection” Eye & Lip Calligraphy Palette: Guerlain knows that true beauty application is like art. The calligraphy theme of this Asian-inspired collection encourages cat-eye creation and perfectly painted red lips.
At Nordstrom for $79.
Lancôme “Holiday 2012 Color Collection” Color Design Shadow & Liner Palette: Lancôme offers a couple of options with “sapphire fling” and “sparkling intoxication,” and while I love the bright blue, evergreen envy is what the holiday demands. Each palette has light shadow at the top for daytime, and sexy black at the base for nighttime.
At Nordstrom for $49.
