I definitely have a slight obsession with buying makeup palettes and probably own way too many. I mainly buy eyeshadow palettes but I'm slowly adding more and more face palettes to my collection. I love face palettes purely for the fact that you get the majority of items you use on your face in one handy palette and it can make it easier when travelling. Here are the five face palettes I think you should have in your collection.

I bought this palette recently when Space NK restocked it after missing it the first time. I have the individual Champagne Pop and have been loving it ever since. Jaclyn Hill released this palette to include the coveted Champagne Pop, the new highlighter Prosecco Pop and 3 blushes. There are two mineral blushes (Amaretto and Pamplemousse) and Luminous blush in Rose Spritz. I'm loving combining Champagne and Prosecco Pop together for a really intense shimmer, Prosecco Pop is more gold version of Champagne Pop I would say.

These Glow Kits were released by ABH earlier this year and I was desperate to get my hands on one. I have the Gleam version which is a collection of pink and silvers compared to the bronzes and golds in the Sun Dipped kit. The palette is quite big and each compact is about the size on an individual highlighter so great value for money. The highlighter are really pigmented and I love the shade Hard Candy which is almost an iridescent pink. I really want the Sweets version but its only available in the US on the ABH website, I think I may have to order through a mailing company when I next get paid as its too pretty not to have.

I was unsure about including this as you only get the two powders in it, but I get it is a face palette. This palette seems to be a favourite in the beauty world and if you've tried CT products before you'll know why! This is the perfect contouring palette to have as it has a lovely universal bronzing shade and subtle shimmery highlight shade. The products also aren't too heavy but can be built up for a more intense look. It's definitely on the price side considering you only get two products effectively but it  really is a dreamy product.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit | £65.00 | post

This is another famous palette in the blogging world when Hourglass released it as part of their holiday collection last year. I snapped it up straight away as i'd been itching to try the Hourglass powders and this had 6 in one. It isn't in stock on Space NK anymore and since it was limited edition it may never come back in stock but still keep an eye out incase it does.. The palette includes 3 powders/highlighter, 2 blushes and a bronzer. If you love glowing skin then this is the palette you need.

ABH Powder Contour Palette | £39.00

This was one of the first products I ever tried from ABH as its pretty much a cult classic. ABH are renowned for their contouring products and this was the original product in the collection - there is now a cream contour kit which I also own. This powder contour kit includes 3 highlighting powders and 3 sculpting powders. I have the light to medium kit, which is perfect for me and I can use the different shades depending on how tanned I am.

What are you cult face palettes?

  7. I wanted to order Becca palette when they restocked it, I was waiting for the pay day and now it is out of stock again :( It was the same story with Hourglass palette, it is just my luck I guess! ABH contour palette is on my wishlist too!
