18 shades: mattes, metallics, shimmers

Just opening this palette will put you in the mood for the holidays – and make you a little hungry – with a divine, subtle scent of gingerbread! The mattes are just as creamy as always, and the metallics are majorly poppin’. Gum Drop, Hot Toddy and Figgy Pudding (seriously, these names are giving us all the feels) make a mouth-watering combination, while Ooo Burn! is the perfect shade for a sultry smokey look.

15 shades: mattes, shimmers, and iridescent shimmers

Natasha Denona never fails to make us fall in love, and if this palette isn’t the epitome of a classic holiday shade range, we don’t know what is! The mattes are Natasha’s signature buttery smooth, pigmented formula, while the duo chrome shades are beyond beautiful (dying over Lime Chrome), and the metallics give an incredible foiled finish. You will want to add a sprinkling of Sparks to every look! This is definitely on the ‘treat yo’self’ spectrum, but it is the holidays, and this is a palette you will not regret investing in.

15 shades: mattes, shimmers, metallics, satin, and a matte with glitter

If your comfortable in your comfort zone and love a neutral look, then this palette will be everything for you. It has classic neutral shades you’ll reach for regularly, and some popping shimmers (the formulas are richly pigmented as always) that will spice up your look for the holidays. The mattes are buttery and blend like a dream, so you’ll be able to get as playful as you like. We also love the glittery 15 Minutes of Fame black shade, which will add a holiday spin to a classic smokey eye.
