The description of the new Sephora Collection palette during their product launch event had me at: "5", "interchangeable" and "pop out portable"...
The Allure Beauty Editor Palette by Sephora is one of the most well throughout out makeup palettes I've come across recently - and one that's worth every penny.
With the exception of brushes (but you have a million of those already don't you?), this palette offers you the ability to mix, match and create hundreds of looks with 5 individual palettes - and take any one of them with you. Leave it to the beauty editorial team at Allure Magazine, in conjunction with Sephora, to get this right!
The 5 palettes with great names each contain 6 highly pigmented and coordinated eye shadows, one blush and one lip gloss. They feature a perfect range of neutrals, basics, new "purple" shades, brights, shimmers and sparkles.
All Fun No Sun: coppers, bronzes and browns
Color Theory: sharp jewel tones like violet and green
Beauty 101: soft nudes and taupes
Sparkles Fly: black, bold gold and orange -
Where There's Smoke: smoky charcoal and grays
This is a palette that can work not only for the beauty pro but for newcomers as well. The shadows are smooth, densely pigmented and very easy to blend. Since the palettes are each coordinated for you, if you're in a rush, not sure how to mix and match or know exactly the look you want - just add a few of the eye shadows from a palette like Beauty 101 or Where There's Smoke, swipe on the blush and lip gloss...and you are perfectly polished!
If you have more time, want to get creative or you're a pro, then you'll love mixing and matching the palettes - taking the deeper lip colors and pairing them with the eye shades in All Fun No Sun or Sparkles Fly, or switching up the blush shades, or mixing the eye shadows in Color Theory with some from Where There's Smoke for example - the possibilities are what make this such an amazing palette. While some of the blushes in the palette are not going to show up very well on darker skin tones, they can be worked as highlighters, and there is one blush that's deep enough for most skin tones which is a pretty berry shade.
With the pop out portable palette, you can also streamline your travel beauty look by just taking one for your beauty kit. Same goes for adding to your bag for the office and after work events.
Pick one up now. (P.S. These will also make great gifts around holiday time!) - RLB
