Hey guys! I am (obviously) doing the Top 5 Makeup Palette tag today. This was one of the easiest tags I've ever done, I knew the exact palettes I would choose for my faves. These are in no particular order, because THAT would probably be too difficult. So anyways, without further adieu...
1. Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette, $59
Why I love it: Beautiful, sleek packaging. Gorgeous, great quality shades. Perfect matte cream color for highlight, perfect matte mid tone brown for crease, great matte dark brown, great glittery lid shade, and 3 beautiful shimmery lid shades. Just perfect if you are a neutral gal like myself.
2. Nars Joie de Vivre
(still available on eBay for $150...eek!)
Why I love it: As many of you already know, Nars is my favorite makeup brand ever. I especially love their blushes and cheek colors, they're just the best in my opinion. This particular palette was a Nordstrom exclusive, and it was simply the best one they EVER came out with, if you ask me.
Top Row: Albatross highlight, Gaiety (my favorite blush shade by Nars), Luster.
Bottom Row: Laguna bronzer, Orgasm, Angelika.
3. Stila In the Light Palette, $39
Why I love it: First of all, if you haven't tried them or you aren't aware, Stila eyeshadows rock. Plain and simple. I'm sure most have heard of their iconic 'Kitten' eyeshadow, which is, well, BEAUTIFUL to put it mildly. This particular palette comes with 10 gorgeous shadows and 1 Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Damsel (matte chocolate brown.)
Top Row: Bare (matte ivory), Kitten (shimmering nude pink), Bliss (matte nude), Sunset (copper shimmer), and Sandstone (matte neutral brown.)
Bottom Row: Champagne (pale gold shimmer), Gilded Gold (bronze with gold shimmer), Luster (deep gray with gold shimmer), Night Sky (slate blue with silver shimmer), and Ebony (matte black.)
4. Tarte Off The Cuff Blush Palette
(still available on eBay for $150-$175...double eek!)
Why I love it: Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes are some of my favorite blushes of life. They are creamy and smooth and they last and on, and on, and on. You get 4 blushes in this palette (Crave, Dazzled, Darling, and Dollface) and one bronzer (their infamous Park Avenue Princess.) So many gorgeous shades to choose from, I love this SO much.
5. Urban Decay Naked Palettes (yes, all of them) $54/each for I, II, and III. $29 for Naked Basics.
