Must Have Makeup Palettes + Sets.

As if I'm not lucky enough to receive makeup regularly to review, I do go shopping for it on my own. Unfortunately, I don't get the time I'd like to spend in a store like Sephora often enough. I did have the time to spend a good hour or so in my favorite Sephora store earlier this week and I did some major shopping. I picked up a lot of new makeup makeup must haves for fall and winter.

While I won't be reviewing all of these completely on the site because a lot of the items I bought were Christmas presents, I thought I should show you everything that I bought. There are so many great new makeup items and makeup sets out there that I think you will want to know about right now. The deals on the sets are incredible too with the holidays coming up too.

The first thing that caught my eye was the NARS X Steven Klein One Shocking Moment Cheek Palette. After creating my own custom cheek palette and having a certain someone wanting her one, I knew this palette would make a great gift for her. This cheek palette features four perfect blushes, a contouring duo and the best NARS Laguna bronzer.

Also making a great gift is Too Faced Le Grand Chateau. This adorable dollhouse boxed set contains three giftable palettes. Each palette has a cheek products (a blush or a bronzer) and six shadows. It also comes with a mini Better Than Sex Mascara. This obviously makes a great gift but it's also a great way to pick up a ton of Too Face products at a great price.

I can't resist a great lipgloss so I had to pick up the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Plexi-Gloss Kit. This limited-edition set contains four of the brands best selling Plexi-Gloss shades. I really like how glossy these lipglosses are and they wear really well. The shades include two nudes (one more creamy beige and one ore pearly nude), a candy pink and a red coral.

I highly debated the Dior Nude Palette for Eyes & Lips. The last thing I needed was another nude palette but I could not resist its beauty. I picked this up as I'm always needed a gift for someone that I seem to forget and I know I cannot go wrong with this stunner. This palette features three gorgeous eye shadows from a light gold to a matte brown (the picture does not do the palette justice) and two beautiful lip colors that will work on anyone. I normally hate eye and lip colors in one palette but Dior is super smart and put a little door over the lip wells.

Bobbi Brown has some of my favorite palettes year round and this holiday she has some great in her line up. One of my favorite is the palm sized Bobbi Brown Bellini Mini Lip & Eye Palette. I'll be reviewing this one in full soon, but quickly this features five wearable shades of classic Bobbi Brown eye shadows plus a shimmery lip gloss. This is the kind of palette that you put in your purse and take with your everywhere. I regret not buying two!

I had to pick up the Laura Mercier Daring By Day Eye & Cheek Colour Palette for me! This palette with six eye shadow shades that range from matte to pearl finishes in light ivory and n pink to brown and plum are perfect for a lot of skin tones and some of my very favorite. It also has the perfect cheek products to complete the look. I know this will be so handy for me when I travel this winter.
