Lipstick Palettes and Kits
We love playing with a variety of lipstick colors and types, and who doesn’t? If you’ve never tried Lipstick Queen, stop everything and grab their Discovery Lipstick Set. The three shades include the best red lipstick (for every skin tone), nude lipstick, and raspberry pink lip stain anywhere. We’re sure that you’ll love theBalm Meet Matte Hughes line, which features six matte liquid lipsticks from deep rust to bright magenta. There’s a color for every mood. Sun care is vital for every part of your body, including your lips. That’s why you should keep one of the COOLA Liplux Trio tinted mineral glosses in your bag at all times. Not only do the SPF 30 and cupuacu butter protect your perfect pout, but a hint of color elevates your look. Need one of everything? This Smashbox lipstick kit provides six incredible shades that come with a “lipstick transformer” that turns any shiny lipstick into a stay-all-day matte lip color. For the best makeup kit anywhere, shell out for the Be Legendary Matte Lipstick Palette with 25 incredible shades and professional lip brush.
Eyeshadow Palettes and Brow Kits
The eyes certainly have it, especially when you’ve got a great eyebrow and eyeshadow palette at your fingertips. Increase the size of your eyes with the Pixi Collection Dimensional Eye Creator, a super-pigmented and blendable neutral eyeshadow palette and pencil-liquid eyeliner duo. Smashbox has done it again with their Travel-Size Double Exposure Set. These eight shadows dramatically transform when used with water, so you’ve actually got double that with this stunning shimmer eyeshadow palette. You can’t go out without touching up your eyebrows, and the Japonesque Eyebrow Kit is a phenomenal place to start. Small enough to fit in any purse, this set contains tweezers, brow powders, wax, and a gel to keep any errant hairs in place all day. Best of all, the included brow stencils give you the ability to change your eyebrow shapes to shake things up. The Youngblood Brow Essential Kit provides a sculpting brow pencil, illuminating pencil to give dimension, and a quick recovery eye cream to remove discoloration and swelling.
None of us are born without flaws, but we can certainly make it seem that way, thanks to corrector makeup! Tired of looking like you’ve been up all night? With the Pixi Eye Bright Kit, you’ll be able to fix all of that by covering up veins, dark circles, and creases with a combination primer-highlighter cream. Pixi is on a roll with the Correct and Perfect Color Correcting Palette, a 7-color kit that covers redness, blemishes, fatigue, veins, and actually improves your skin health! Discoloration can throw a wrench in your makeup routine, but this small Jane Iredale Corrective Colors Camouflage fits in any makeup bag, and conceals the problem quickly and efficiently.
Highlight and Contour Kit
Japonesque’s Kumadori Highlighting Trio is the palette for effortless radiance. The super blendable powder allows you to layer these three shades however you’d like. bareMinerals is known for “being so pure you can sleep in it”, and the feeling carries over to all of their products, like the You Had Me At Glow Dimensional Powder Palette. This bareMinerals set contains six natural shimmering shades that impart a soft, buildable glow. If you’ve never tried contouring trends – or have been frustrated by a contour palette – you need to try the Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit. Accompanied with an angled brush and easy-to-use guide based on your face shape, you’ll be able to use the deep, complementary, and highlight makeup with ease. Want something simpler and in a pressed powder? Try the Jane Iredale Contour Palette.
