$88The classic. This luxurious palette combines spectacular quality with the inspiration of the holiday season. Picture fresh, sparkly snow, a warm knit sweater and warmth by the fire- that's what this palette looks like to me!
$65A collection like this doesn't happen often- make sure to bring home a piece from the legendary shu uemura x Karl Lagerfeld collaboration collection this holiday. Our recommendation? One (or both) of these two Karl-esque palettes.
$47.50Oh, Bobbi... I simply cannot stay away from you for a single season, especially at the holidays! This stunning, rich neutral palette is all I need for everything from classic day looks to sultry evening eyes.
