Top 10 Makeup Palettes!

This weeks Top 10 Tuesday has our bloggers showcasing their favorite makeup palettes. I absolutely LOVE palettes and since eyeshadow is my makeup drug of choice, you will be seeing a lot of eyeshadow palettes in this post. One reason I like palettes so much is the value they provide–you get more bang for your buck than buying each item individually. Another reason is that everything is coordinated for me and that really helps when I’m pressed for time, which is always! Palettes are not only for eyeshadows though–there are also lip, blush and face palettes. I’ m really excited to see what the rest of our bloggers chose, they never fail to make me add something to my wishlist!

My favorite palettes in no particular order:

Marc Jacobs The Starlet  Possibily the best eyeshadow palette EVER! The quality and texture are superb.This mix of seven warm and cool shades are all you need, review here.

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case – from the Urban Decay Holiday 2013 collection. This is one of those lives-in-my-bag palettes. It has 5 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, a highlighter, black eyeliner and a lip crayon. What else do you need? See my full review here.

bareMinerals The Power Neutrals Ready 8.0 Eyeshadow Palette – a great palette of amped up neutrals that are truly neutral–not too warm or cool toned. The bareMinerals quality is present and $40 for 8 great eye shadows is a fab bargain. Limited Edition, see my full review here.
