Top 10 of 2012: Makeup Palettes

Top 10 of 2012: Makeup Palettes

There were actually a lot of fantastic palettes released this year! I already pulled up twenty that to consider for the top ten, and I had only reached August (I go backwards).  So here are my picks–and I tried to include a variety of brands that were all excellent, but full disclosure: could have easily included more bareMinerals, Guerlain, and another Tom Ford (Enchanted).

What was your favorite makeup palette from 2012?

Le Metier de Beaute Urban Dweller Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Urban Dweller Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich chocolate plum with golden effervescence.” It’s a dark, reddened chocolate brown with copper and teal micro-shimmer. Urban Decay Barlust is very similar, just not quite as red-toned.

Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Silk Road Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic, bronzed copper.” It’s a rich, darkened copper with coppery-orange shimmer and a metallic finish. When I quickly looked for a good dupe, I came up empty-handed, because the majority of copper shades I’ve reviewed in the past are brighter, less brown-based.

Le Metier de Beaute Dynasty Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Dynasty Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, shimmering fuchsia.” It’s a rich, deepened ruby red with darker, ruby red shimmer–very fine shimmer that’s still noticeable in natural light but has a thread-like appearance. Illamasqua Charisma is very similar–perhaps a little darker, less red. Zoya Karina is brighter, redder.

Le Metier de Beaute Anatolia Nail Lacquer

Le Metier de Beaute Anatolia Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich plum illuminating with bronzy, golden shimmer.” It’s a darkened, slightly muted, red with golden shimmer. The finish is almost foil-like, but it’s not quite as reflective as a true foil finish (nor as naturally matte but reflective). Dior Apparat was the closest dupe I could think of, but it is a richer red and has finer gold shimmer. Zoya Alegra is lighter, pinker.
