Urban Decay Naked palette is a no-brainer to include on the list. I think it’s probably the most famous eyeshadow palette around. It’s really versatile and is great for travel. The newer palette comes with an eyeshadow brush. The primer potion is a nice bonus, too. There is a mix of matte and shimmer shadows and they are all super silky. A great deal that’s also a great gift.
NARS blush palette is such a great deal. Only $65 for 6 blushes – and let me tell you, NARS is the Ferrari of powder blushes. 1 blush will set you back $27, so if you use the discount, you’ll be getting 4 blushes for free. Orgasm, Sin & Desire are must-haves. Casino probably won’t get touched until summer as it’s a little dark, but hey, I can live with that!
Urban Decay 24/7 Liners is such a great kit. You can get naked (pictured), which is my favorite because I adore the Whisky color, or Electric which is a set including a bunch of fun colors. While these are not full-sized, they will still last quite some time. The staying power of these is great and they glide on smooth.
Tarte Lip Service Set is so amazing. Great for travel, throwing in your bag or sitting on your vanity. They provide a flush of color and are long-lasting. Easy to use and are self-sharpening.
Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush set is a great starter set if you don’t really have any brushes. The case is adorable and ALL the brushes in the set are brushes you’ll use. They are beyond soft, and even though I have plenty of brushes I was half tempted to pick this set up!
