Thought you might like a peek at these gorgeous palettes; called in to be shot for a glossy magazine gift guide, I could look but not touch - talk about beauty torture! I love the sleekness of the Le Metier de Beaute Marchesa palettes, and the way that the Trish McEvoy compact packs in so many useful shades to such a tiny, slim case. The Jemma Kidd is good value at £28 and has a nice big mirror. I would definately use all of the shades in the Becca Prairie Moon Palette. The Laura Mercier kit is comprehensive, including eyeliner and mascara as well as shadow, blush and lipgloss.
