Mini guide: 5 make-up palettes for each and everyone this Christmas

Last gifts for your female friends? What a better place than a perfumery shop where one can find almost everything a girl would desire?
Today’s mini guide is about make-up with my selection of 5 make-up palettes you can find in one easy place: Sephora.

Starting clockwise, from the top right: the Christmas 2015 limited edition palette by Sephora called Wonder Dreams. It’s a real wonder or a dream thanks to its original packaging, with sliding opening, and a cheerful decoration. It contains 8 matte and iridescent eye shadows which look bright and soft. All these qualities make this palette the perfect kit for the younger ones.
Style Eye-Con No. 7 by Marc Jacobs encloses all the elegance of the designer in a black, sleek and thin pack. It contains 7 shades in rich finishes, matte and pearl iridescent; it's proposed in five variants with a name that denotes the style of whom, hypothetically, will use it.
The Vamp is represented by purple, black and medium green, intriguing tones.

Sleek Au Natural iDivine is the essential declined in 12 eyeshadows, 8 matte and 4 pearly tones, these shades are... just natural, for an always perfect and sober daytime or smokey eye look.
Urban Decay Electric Palette, an apt name for a palette with 10 highly pigmented and super shocking eyeshadows! It comes with a mirror and a double-ended cruelty-free brush. I immediately thought of the Sleek iDivine Acid for its colours.
Finally, at the centre, there is the temptation: the Chocolate Bar palette by Too Faced with real cocoa powder. This chocolate bar-shaped compact has 16, both matte and metallic, eyeshadows enriched in antioxidants. The peculiar note is that they really smell of cocoa!
In this collection, there’s also a so-called Semi-Sweet palette, but from what I can see by comparisons on the net the classic version seems to have much more vibrant metallic eyeshadows.

For young girls, for those who love hassle-free looks and those who love venture with colours and magnetic glances, the ideal palette is ready to be wrapped and decorated with a bow and.. given!
You can find these beauty boxes at your local Sephora shop.
