Stila's holiday palettes are always lovely, but this year's Dream in Full Color palette ($39) is both totally gorgeous and amazingly affordable. Plus, it comes with an easy-to-follow instruction booklet that tells you how to create seven different looks. Even if you lose the booklet, all you really need to know is that you start outside of each "petal" and work your way toward the center, finishing up with the included waterproof liner pencil. The shadow in the middle is Stila's beloved Kitten, and there's even blush ringing the outside. And if you like the multishadow compact idea but want something portable (the Full Color palette is about the size of a Frisbee), check out the Daydream palette ($18), a miniversion with bright shades and just a few less color layering options.
