They also are a great gift for a friend who loves makeup! Today, I have rounded up some of my favorite palettes that I think would make great gifts for the holidays. Also, many of these colors would look great to wear during a holiday party!
Two Faced Palettes:
I love the brand Two Faced in general, but I especially love two of their eye shadow palettes. First off, I love their White Chocolate Chip palette. It is packed to look like a white chocolate bar and the shades are scented and smell like chocolate. Seriously, so cute. Also, I love the size of the palette, there are 11 shades included, however it is in a small package that fits in the palm of my hand. It is absolutely perfect for travel or to easily throw in a purse. Also, the mirror included is a good one! I couldn’t decide on my favorite shades, since I use each shade in this one!
Finally, I love their Natural Love palette. The packaging is so sweet and reminds me of a wedding or something from a fairytale book. The mirror included in this palette is also very large, which I like. There are 30 shades included and start with light pinks that transition to golds, then browns, then your darker shades. I mostly stick to the first two columns of the palette, which are the light pinks. I also really like the shades Bunny Nose and Honeymoon, also pinks. Another shade I use often is Honey Pot, which is a pretty gold. I have more information about this product, here.
Urban Decay Palettes:
Okay, so I know everyone knows about these as I feel they have become pretty infamous in the makeup world. I felt like it would be wrong not to include them though, I won’t spend as much time talking about these. Naked 2 is such a pretty one. The color payoff of the shades is amazing and I use almost every single one. 12 shades are included and there is something for everyone! I like the brush that comes with it and the mirror is also great.
Also, I really like Naked 3, which may be my favorite of the two. This one includes more pinks, and I really like the shades with my skin tone. The colors I use the most are Dust, Burnout, and Buzz. This palette also has 12 shades, and a great brush and mirror.
I have my eye on a new Tarte palette, but I still am loving the one I already own. I love the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea palette. There are 8 shades and I find myself using Sand, Mermaid, and Seashell the most. I also love the mirror that comes with this palette and the circular shape! Back in March, I included this palette in my favorites, here.
I love the NARSissist Loaded Palette. This one is absolutely perfect for the holidays. Lately, I have been using the gold shade often. These shades are very pigmented and have great color payoff. There are 12 shades and this palette also has a quality mirror. In June, I included this palette in my favorites, here.
Bobbi Brown Palette:
I have had this Warm Glow eye palette longer than I care to admit. It is one of my long time favorites, and I have hit pan on so many of the shades. There are 9 shades of sparkly pinks, golds, and browns. I think they are so beautiful and use them all. The case is so chic looking and also has a great mirror. I really like the shades Rosé, Golden Pink, Bonfire, Gold, and Golden Bronze.
Rimmel London Palette:
I randomly picked up this Magnif’eyes Blush Edition palette at the drug store, because I thought the pink shades were so pretty. There are 12 colors and for being a drug store palette, I was impressed with the color payoff I received. It comes with a brush, but I didn’t find it to be a very good one. Mostly, I stick to the light pink shades, which are the first half of the palette. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who is on a budget!
I own and love all of these palettes and don’t think you could go wrong with any of them! If you are looking for a Christmas gift, definitely check out my gift guide for the beauty lover!
