Are you going holiday shopping this weekend?
I love all the eye shadow palettes that come out for Christmas.
In fact one of my absolute favorite gifts that I received last year was an eye shadow palette set that looked like chocolate bars, by Lorac. It was given to me by a former makeup student of mine, and I can honestly say I have used it almost every day for the past year.
So here is a look at some of the holiday palettes in the stores right now. Where possible I will put online shopping links with them.
The Lorac Unzipped Palette
This is actually part of their normal collection, but is a fabulous combination of neutral mattes and shimmers that you will literally use year round. At $40 it’s a bargain.
The Pro Palette.
I have 2 of these, one in my pro makeup kit and one for use at home. Again it’s a wonderful combination of colors, the top row is matte and the bottom row is shimmer. Only $42
The MAC Keepsakes Limited Edition Smoky Face Palette
Three eyeshadows, one Iridescent Pressed Powder, a cream color base and 2 lipsticks.
The Keepsakes Natural Face Palette
Three eyeshadows, one iridescent powder, two lipsticks and a cream color base, all in neutral tones.
This is just a really lovely color combination.
I would love one of these, and I think it makes a beautiful gift too.
