Best of 2017
Best Cheek Palettes
As 2017 comes to a close, it’s time to reflect back on the products I’ve reviewed during the past year and share with you my personal favorites. One tip off that there were numerous more palette releases in 2017 was that there was enough cheek palette releases (and not just during the holidays!) to merit putting together a best of list for them. I tend to like seeing duos and trios released the most; quads and higher tend to either look too similar or are so varied that some will find they can’t wear all the shades in a palette. Of course, I am Queen of Variety, and I’ll happily wear something that’s “unflattering” on my coloring if I like the color anyway!
CoverFX’s Perfect Highlighting Palette was one of my all-time favorite releases from the year, period. I was also happy to see Becca release two quality palettes this year–Light Waves and their collab with Chrissy Teigen. Check out my full list below!
