Palettes are the ultimate makeup multi-tasker. All your makeup needs compacted in cute little houses that are perfect for handbags, and the like. It’s a beauty win-win.
The makeup Gods are kind to us over at The Carousel HQ, and we are privy to the prettiest palettes around.
Therefore, we have plucked our latest palette faves for your perusal.
This opulent, metallic rose gold compact comprises four silky, complementary shades hand-selected by Ms. Bobbi Brown herself. With two matte shades and two sparkle-laden hues, defining your eyes has never been so sexy (or easy). The super finely milled pigments allow for seamless blending without any flaking or fall out, which makes for perfectly gilded eyes every time.
When this super-dooper eye palette landed on our desks in a pile of dried petals, we knew this was going to be a beautifier. Comprising 14 universally flattering shades, these silk-infused eye shadows all come matte, but, with the magic mix of the Transforming Pearl shade, transform into luminous, pearly hues. Talk about multi-tasking – this has your lids covered.
Now, this glimmering, glittering, gilded delight is just too pretty to ruin. But, the colours are too good so we’re prepared to ravage away. A limited edition collaboration with Jaclyn Hill, the creator of the original Champagne Pop, this face palette features five iconic shades to give you a customised glow. You can either ride solo, or mix ‘n’ match two Shimmering Skin Perfectors in Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop, and two hues of Mineral Blush in Amaretto and Pamplemousse. Then give your cheeks a little boozy flush with the Rosé Spritz Luminous Blush. Did someone say island getaway? Your skin will be thirsty for this drop.Chantecaille Le Magnolia Eye and Cheek Palette, $125
