Holiday Palette Preview
Over the coming few weeks, beauty’s best holiday palettes will quietly arrive on counter. And they boast some of the best packaging and colour combinations of the year. Now, unless you are watching for them, you may not see them. That’s because cosmetics companies rarely advertise them. You have to be watching for them and buy them quickly as the numbers are very limited.
I’ve surveyed all the top prestige brands and selected my very favourites. Here’s your sneak peek at the best holiday 2016 palettes.
YSL Multi-Use Sparkle Clash Collector Palette, $100
Giorgio Armani Night Light Palette, $160
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout Palettes in Smoky Nights & Sultry Nudes, $68 each (arriving mid Nov)
Dior Holiday Couture Collection Total Matte Smoky Palette for Eyes
Bobbi Brown Golden Eye Palette, $47
Clarins Essentials Eye Makeup Palette, $62
Dior 5-Couleurs Splendor Eye Palette in Smoky Sequins, $73
Dior 5-Couleurs Splendor Eye Palette in Precious Embroidery, $73
Lancome Audacity in London palette, $89
Sarah Moon for NARS Look Closer Eyeshadow Palette, $62
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Face Compact in Peach, $42
Guerlain Terra India by Shalimar Shimmering Bronzing Powder, $64
Burberry Gold Glow Fragranced Luminizing Powder, $75
These holiday palettes are available in Canada at select Hudson’s Bay stores and thebay.com

So many lovely options! In the US, the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Face Compact in Sweet Copper sold out within 15 minutes of launch on the brand site and at every department store that carried it. I was fortunate enough to have been one to be able to get it. It’s lovely. I’ve heard really good feedback about the Dior palettes and have been eyeing Embroidery as they’re the perfect shades for my green eyes. I hadn’t seen the Estee Lauder palettes before – my they also look lovely. Thanks so much for the preview Dave!

Question: your thoughts on the Pat McGrath metallic sets coming out. I love metallic anything but realistically can I find a way to wear them on eyes at age 45? Love the colors and metals….can’t think of a way to make them me friendly. Any thoughts?

Eye palette heaven! So many wonderful items!!
