Few things in life can make me as giddy as an eyeshadow palette. As someone who doesn’t splurge on makeup products often, a compact chock full of shimmery and smoky shadows feels totally luxurious (the gorgeous packaging helps, too). Not only are the below palettes completely opulent—and believe me, you too will feel like a grade school girl when you break them open—they are also super helpful for those of us who aren’t experts when it comes to choosing a family of colors, blending shades, and lining eyes with shadows.
Holiday party season is coming at us like a freight train, and if you’re like me, you want to everything from your cocktail dress to your smoky eye to be on point. Whatever look you’re going for, these palettes—with shadows ranging from sparkly nudes to wine-hued mattes—are guaranteed to get you there fast. The hardest part will be not buying more than one. We’re looking forward to seeing you, and your perfect cat eye, at the open bar!
