One of my absolute favourite things to see a sparkling new eye palette, tempting me with a range of beautiful shades. I’m quite picky with eyeshadows so there’s usually only one or two a year that really set my pulse racing but that clearly isn’t the case this year. I nearly always have one set aside for my letter to Santa but I feel a bit bamboozled by palettes in the past few weeks, there’s so many great ones coming out that now I’m a bit flummoxed as which is best!
Help me choose girls!
NARS Ride up to the Moon – Golds and greens are some of the most sumptuous eye colours and when you pair that with one of my favourite cruelty free brands I’m on to a complete winner.
NARS Fairy’s Kiss – Ah yes another NARS palette but the companion to Ride up to the Moon is simply too pretty to overlook.
Clarin’s Essential Eye Palette – You can’t deny Clarins have brought out a complete winner with their stunning new eye palette which rounds off an amazing year for the brand. I really, really want this as it has a lovely Naked palette feel but it isn’t so similar it’s redundant. There’s excellent swatches here if you’re interested!
Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette – I really love the mix of matte and shimmer shades of this palette in a mix of cool and warmer tones. Temptalia has a great review of this palette which makes me want it even more!
Urban Decay Naked 3 – Is it a beautiful hoax or are the few leaked photos online really of the brand new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette? Well having spoken with their PR, it’s on the cards this year girls and as it’s November, that means we don’t have long to wait! People are already divided about whether this palette is too similar to it’s predecessors to be a must-have, but personally I can’t wait to see it!
Full Exposure Palette – Finally, Smashbox refuse to sit quietly and have a beautiful new palette coming out that will actually hit stores after Christmas so this is one to keep in mind when you get some vouchers for Christmas or maybe a few quid if you’re lucky! It’s a big palette with a lot of gorgeous contrasting matte and shimmer shades and I’ll definitely be swatching this bad boy in January!
So what do you think girls, have I missed any palettes I need to add to the list or are any of these making your currently drool over your keyboard or phone?
