holiday palettes

September 30, 2015

A sure sign that Christmas is coming is the proliferation of special edition makeup palettes  for the holiday season. Beauty brands have started tempting us in the best way possible with their festive offerings, and boy, are we tempted. Here are all the holiday makeup palettes that have already made it into our Christmas wish list:

Sephora Colour Around The World: 4 Eye & Face Palettes

p400522-av-05-zoom p400522-av-01-zoom

Firstly, we want this because it’s 4 palettes for the price of 1. How much better of a deal can this be? Each palette includes 4 eyeshadows and 1 blush that have been colour-coordinated and named according to the theme of 4 different cities: Paris, New York, Rome and Rio. They come packaged adorably like notebooks, too.

$52, available at Sephora stores from Nov.


Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 20 in The Free Spirit


Marc Jacobs named this palette after model Charlotte Free – also, this is the first time he’s done such a big eyeshadow palette. The shades include mattes, shimmers, metallics and lustrous sheens, and can easily be worked into day or night looks.

$145, available at Sephora stores from Nov.


Tarte Light Of The Party Collector’s Makeup Case


The sequined case opens up to reveal 30 eyeshadow shades. Twenty four of them are all-new and are built into the palette, while the remaining 6 are in a pop-out travel-sized palette together with 3 cheek and contour colours, plus a deluxe mascara and double-ended eyeshadow brush.

$79, available at Sephora stores from Nov. 


Too Faced Le Grand Palais 


This super-cute Too Faced palette is filled with the brand’s most iconic products, including 18 festive eyeshadow shades, bronzers, a blush and a highlighter, a deluxe Better Than Sex mascara, deluxe Melted Liquified Longwear Lipstick in Peony, and the cult Shadow Insurance Eye Primer.

$80, available at Sephora stores from Nov.


Clé de Peau Beauté Holiday Collection Makeup Coffret


The masquerade ball-inspired packaging is enough to sweep us off our feets, but the Eye Color Quad in 314 and Extra Rich Lipstick in 314 are completely party-appropriate. Throw in the Perfect Lash Mascara, and you’re set for the night.

$240, available at Clé de Peau Beauté counters from Nov.


Guerlain Palette Ors Et Merveilles


This palette is really compact, but opening it reveals five eyeshadow colours in neutral shades on the top layer, and four pink-toned blushes in matte and shimmer finishes on the bottom one.

POA, available at Guerlain counters from Oct. 


Urban Decay Vice4 Palette


This latest edition of the iconic Vice palette comes in a badass faceted case in colours inspired by an oil slick. Inside, 20 eyeshadow shades ranging from neutrals to traffic-stopping brights will let you experiment with all the eye looks you want.

$88, available at Sephora stores and Urban Decay stores at VivoCity and Bugis Junction (opening in Oct).
