5 Must Have Makeup Palettes

I cannot believe that this is the last Friday in February. How is this year flying by so fast already? Though I am on vacation, I have still been discovering some great new beauties. This week is all about the new makeup palettes that I have found recently. Palettes are where you get the most bang for your buck. With single products costing $20+, getting multiples in a palette, is often the best way to go.

1. NARS The Happening Palette - $65.00
This must have palette has it all - including the must have best selling Orgasm Blush and Laguna Bronzer - plus four very wearable eye shadow colors. The shades include a sheer peach with gold shimmer, a shimmering taupe, boysenberry (a beautiful lilac) infused with gold, and a deep taupe brown infused with gold.

2. Laura Mercier Arabesque Baked Eye Color Palette - $48.00
Laura's baked eye shadows are some of the best. This beautiful new shadow palette contains five gorgeous spring shades that can be worn wet for more intense color, or dry for soft shading. The palette includes: Champagne, Sepia, Mink, Malt and Sterling.

3. Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Collection - $36.00
For soft and smoky, sexy eyes, this collection of nine shadows cannot be beat. From a light and shimmering champagne to a super sexy shimmery gray, bedroom eye looks are endless. Too Faced shadows are very soft and silky, plus very long lasting. I have a few of the shadow palettes and am thrilled with this new addition to my collection.

4. Dior Sweet Chérie Pinks Eye & Lip Palette - $59.00
A spring pink look is easy with the eye and lip products in this gorgeous pink palette.  The four shadows in beautiful, soft shades of pink and gray pair nicely with the pink lip shades. For lips you get a lip balm to soften lips and use as a base, a lipstick and two lip glosses. It doesn't get any sweeter.

5. Bobbi Brown Bellini Lip & Eye Palette - $75.00
Bobbi thought of just about every eye look when she put together this beautiful palette. With ten shadows that range from a bare base shade, an almost black shade perfect for lining eyes, and everything in between, this one will get a lot of use. The four beautiful lip glosses complete any look you create. The shadows are super soft and range in textures from matte, to shimmery and intense.

Oh my , these are some really great palettes. I haven't used Too Faced in that long but I noticed this palette plus a couple others that I am really interested in. I keep hearing about Laura Mercier's baked eye shadows too and I think I really want that pretty pastel pallette.
You know what....... I am tired of lip gloss being in the same palette as a shadows. There needs to be a better design, because I always get the powder into the gloss and it ruins them.
That Nars palette is coming home with me this weekend!
The entire Sweet Cherie collection from Dior is swoonworthy. I have a couple of items on my birthday list. My daughter is so good and always tells my husband what makeup I want and I am lucky because he splurges. Can't wait til March!!! I will be 50 on the 13th and I am declaring it birthday month! Yay me!!!
4. Dior Sweet Chérie Pinks Eye & Lip Palette is definitely on my to-buy list before the month ends.

And I agree with Brooke on not having gloss in the same palette as powders. My palettes sometimes get ruined when my bags get all shaken up :(
