A makeup palette is the one item that can turn any beauty lover's head and make a hoarder's heart race. They are the ultimate multi-taskers. It's a moment of self-care, a time to indulge in a ritual, an invitation to play, experiment, and try something new.
Then there are times when they serve as a trusted friend, offering a series of reliable shades that you know will deliver when you need them. Moreover, they are arguably the best beauty gift you will ever get, whether it is for yourself or a loved one - if you can bear to part with it. There's nothing like a small parcel of joy and beauty.
This is the time when all palette lovers know that limited editions are on display and collectibles are available for the taking. While they may be more of an investment buy, they're clear winners when it comes to joy per wear. Here’s the list of some of the best makeup palettes
