Palettes to Love: January

Tuesday, January 10th 2017 0

NYX, Estee Lauder and more

Over the Christmas period I experimented with lots of new palettes for Christmas drinks here and there. Here are my favourites.

NYX Blusher Palette, £17
The morning this arrived in a blossom of fresh flowers my mom and I couldn’t believe it.

NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette

A stunning selection of pink and peach blusher shades, this is a great palette for anyone that likes to mix up their lipstick and needs plenty of blushers to match.

As always with NYX, the colour pay off given the price point is impressive and the pigment works on all skin tones.

Zoeva Caramel Melange Palette, £17.50
I absolutely love Zoeva and I find the colour pay off and easy-to-blend shadow formulation a total dream. This palette, their winter release takes the prize as the most beautiful burnt, smoky palette you could imagine. I love the range of warm, chocolatey tones and coppers and reds.

When used together, they make the more abstract warm colours completely easy to wear. If you have blue or green eyes this will make them pop.

Also, if you like Zoeva you might like to look at the Plaisir Box for £48 which contains three of their most popular palettes: Caramel Melange, Blanc Fusion and Cocoa Blend.

Estee Lauder Palettes, £44 each
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the last few years it’s that Estee Lauder have so much more to offer than Double Wear. They’ve created lots of new formulations in lipsticks and eyeshadows, and these two new palettes are the proof that they are an absolute destination for colour. Choose between a selection of vibrant colours or classic nudes.

Smashbox Light It Up Trio
A staple of mine through the party season, this is one of the most handbag-friendly launches I’ve seen this winter. This little trio contains three miniature palettes: eyes, lips and contouring.

Smashbox Light it Up 3 Palette Set

They’re a really portable size (think the size of a credit card and about an inch thick) and as with all things Smashbox they’re pigmented and long wearing. Given the selection of eyes, lips and cheeks, this would be a lovely gift for someone being introduced to the brand.

Too Faced Christmas in New York Grand Hotel Cafe, £46
This set of three palettes is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen! I’m going to let the photos do the talking for this one.
