Top 5: Makeup Palettes for 2010

In an effort to help you with your Christmas shopping this year, I’ve tried several of the holiday products to pick my favorites for 2010!

Each of these products I show, I purchased with my own money and was not sponsored by any companies.  My opinions are always my own :)

5.   Urban Decay NYC Palette

Urban Decay never disappoints with their eyeshadow palettes- this newest one is no exception.  The quality of the eyeshadows is amazing, the colors are super bright, and the price is great for what all is included.  I especially love the packaging on this one as it lights up! My only complaint is there’s not enough new colors and not enough variety in matte and shimmer shadows, thus making this my #5 for this year…

It includes:

  • 16 eyeshadows
  • 2 eyeliners
  • small eye primer

Price: $54

Where to Buy:   SephoraAmazon .  eBay


4.  Smashbox Wish Palette 2010

I love this palette in that there’s a great mixture of matte and shimmery shadows, plus the quality of the shadows is amazing!  The colors are so pretty, are pretty much full size, and there’s even a “Look Book” that includes makeup ideas using this palette.

Price: $45

Where to Buy: Sephora . Amazon . eBay


3.   Too Faced Glamour To Go – Fairy Edition

I always love when Too Faced comes out with these cute little palettes as they’re perfect for keeping in your purse on those crazy days!  I carry one in my purse and grab a couple brushes and primer to do my makeup on the run :)   This year’s palette is especially nice as the colors are gorgeous AND there’s a mixture of matte and shimmer shadows!  These make amazing presents as they’re less than $20 and are oh so cute :)

It includes:

  • 8 eyeshadows
  • 1 blush
  • 1 bronzer
  • 1 lipgloss

Price: $19.50

Where to Buy: Sephora . Amazon eBay


2. LORAC Box Office Sensation

This palette is perfect for travel as it has almost everything you need in one sleek case!  Honestly, I bought this palette mainly for packaging as it was so stylish and reminded me of a caboodle ;)

It includes:

  • 36 eyeshadows- mixture of shimmer and matte finishes
  • 9 lipglosses

1.   Tarte Jewelry Box

This is my #1 palette for 2010 as it has full size eyeshadows- half of which are matte finish!  The quality of these eyeshadows is fantastic, and the color choices are amazing (some colors are beyond what MAC has), and the packaging is very slick.

Best. Holiday. Palette. Evah.
