Holiday Gift Guide Part 3

The palette.  It can be one of the most versatile pieces in a makeup collection.  I personally love trying out new palettes, and finding out how many looks you can get from one product.  Palettes are great for the "Girl on the Go", whether they're traveling abroad or just running around the city, a palette that is easily packable makes a great gift.

This palette is from Pop Beauty, I L-O-V-E the packaging! It looks just like a clutch you would use for a night out.  The size is ideal for travel, the same size as an iPhone, only slightly thicker.

The palette contains 8 shadows, a blush, a highlight and a lip gloss.  The only thing this palette is missing is a mascara.

The colours in this palette can be used for both day and night looks.

I wore the shadow from this palette to the recent Style Spy event.

I applied the colours over Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and the shadows lasted all night.  The shadow did not smudge or crease.  You just need to be a bit careful when applying, as I did experience some fall out.

There are hundreds of palettes out there, and they are available anywhere makeup is sold.  Holiday season is the ideal time to try out a new palette, as most companies make special edition ones for the holiday season.

Happy Shopping!
Cheers, Sarah
