I love a palette – a glorious little make-up box full of mini favourites. The stores are full of new release palettes for the festive season. This one from Essence is a budget queen’s dream.
With eight eyeshadows, mini applicator, mirror, blusher, highlighter and two lip glosses, the palette has everything you’ll need to take you from your desk to the Christmas party.
I struggle to wear silvers on the eyes as I’m so pale to begin with so my favourite shadows from the palette are Golden Girl – a shimmering warm gold that will flatter all skin types – and the pretty Go For Bronze. I also love the shimmering black shadow Dare To Wear for a festive smokey eye.
Both the blusher and highlighter are frosted – something I tend to shy away from but will undoubtedly add sparkle to your Christmas look.
The mini lip glosses are dinky and perfect for popping into a teeny tiny party clutch. Available in a glittery red and pink, they give a hint of colour and shimmer to lips.
Essence Party Look Make-Up Box is available in stores now for €8.99.
