When I first unwrapped the Ciaté London Glitter Storm Palette ($42), I was totally mesmerized . . . and that was before even opening the compact to see the eye shadows inside. The cover of the palette is filled with pink glitter and stars that move around as you carry the product, creating an avalanche of shimmer. After about 10 minutes of playing with the palette, I opened it up to reveal nine gorgeous maroon, pink, and purple hues that applied smoothly to my lids and are packed with pigment.
While the collection of shadows includes a selection of matte, shimmer, and glitter finishes, you'll fall head over heels for the top row of glitter shadows. Each one is so metallic and attention-grabbing, you'll want to add them to your look on a near-daily basis. I love that these colors are on trend, easy to blend out, and include a selection of finishes and dark and light shades, so it's easy to create a full eye look.
The whimsical packaging alone is enough of a reason to gift this palette this year, but the shadows seal the deal. Ahead, see more photos of Ciate London's Glitter Storm Palette.
