Christmas makeup palettes released just in time for the holidays

As if we don’t already have a hard enough time resisting makeup palettes year-round, the beauty giants only go a drop a whole new bunch of drool-worthy collections just in time for the holidays.

Despite their cruelty, there’s no denying makeup palettes make for great Christmas gifts. And what makes them extra special this time of year (aside from the sparkly and festive packaging), is that a lot are limited-edition.

So if you’re searching for the perfect present for a fellow beauty lover, or are compiling your own list for Santa, here’s our edit of the best Christmas makeup palettes…
