The Best Makeup Palettes To Buy This Christmas
As you will have seen yesterday, if you paid a visit to the blog, the first of my Christmas gift guides (specifically the one concerning buying for the men in your life), went live and today I'm back with my second gift guide to talk all about the best makeup palettes to buy this Christmas. Whether you're treating yourself or a loved one to one of these brilliant beauty buys, there's something for everyone, for all budgets and for every occasion. So let's get started;
First up we've got three palettes that you'll find at the drugstore. This makes them perfect for Secret Santa style gifting or even as rather large stocking fillers.
The Tanya Burr Baby It's Cold Outside palette is absolutely adorable and as you should be able to see from the photograph above, it just looks so pretty! Inside you'll find a blush, a highlighter and a gorgeous lip gloss. It's available from Superdrug where it's currently down to £10 and on Feel Unique, who currently have it at just £8.50 and it's part of their 3 for 2 deal (you can also save 15% off your first order on there right now, which is well worth taking advantage of if you're doing your Christmas shopping).
The next makeup palette, the Seventeen My Photo Eye Palette*, allows you to insert your very own photograph onto the front of the palette, which makes it a great gift idea for teenagers and even Secret Santa, as well. There's a combination of neutral and bold shades and I've always found the quality of Seventeen shadows to be pretty impressive, especially when you consider the price point. You'll find this palette in Boots and it's also part of the store-wide 3 for 2.
Next we come to one of my favourite beauty brands; Makeup Revolution. And they've really hit it out of the park with their Christmas gift offerings this year. The Ultimate Blush & Light & Contour set has everything you could ever want when it comes to these kinds of products and the quality is second to none when it comes to Makeup Revolution. This palette, which is normally £20 is currently down to just £10 in Superdrug and on their site. Now that's definitely a deal worth grabbing while you still can.
Next up we have two palettes that you'll find in Marks & Spencer of all places;
If you've recently paid a visit to the M&S beauty hall, you'll know exactly how many incredible beauty brands, ones that you don't ordinarily see on the High Street, grace their shelves and two of the best brands they carry have to be Pixi and Rosie Huntington Whiteley's Rosie for Autograph range.
First up we have the Rosie for Autograph makeup palette. This would make many a woman smile on Christmas morning. It's also currently half price (yes HALF PRICE) in store and online, taking it to just £12.50 which is pretty fantastic. The rest of the Rosie for Autograph beauty and fragrance range is also well worth a look.
Then we have this epic palette from Pixi by Petra. Containing more eyeshadows and face products than you could ever want, this is basically an entire makeup collection in one handy palette. I also absolutely adore the festive packaging of this palette.
And last but not least we have two of the most talked about palettes to be released in recent months;
One of the reasons I get rather excited for Christmas, weeks, if not months, before the big day, is the fact that so many of my favourite beauty brands bring out the most incredible gift sets, limited editions and products to mark the holiday season and nobody does it better than Too Faced for me. I mean how wonderful does this palette look? I also can't get over the Christmas In New York theme either! Is this not the dreamiest makeup palette you've ever seen? You'll find absolutely beautiful macaron scented shadows and even a little luxury mini of their bestselling and brilliant Better Than Sex Mascara. In the UK you might still be able to find it at your local Debenhams or on Too Faced's site but you'll also find it exclusively in Ulta if you live in the US.
And finally we have the one eyeshadow palette that everyone has been losing it over this year; the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics. An entire palette dedicated to matte shadows, ones that are so wearable and ideal for everyday wear, basically equates to the holy grail of eyeshadow palettes this year. This is definitely the one makeup palette to own full stop. You'll find it at House Of Fraser, Debenhams , Feel Unique and Sephora.
Are you a fan of any of these makeup palettes? If so, which one looks like it could be your favourite? And are you buying for any makeup fans this Christmas? If you are, which one would they love?
