Ciaté London The Fun Palette
Trust me, when I say this palette lives up to its name — it's pretty damn fun. The top of the case contains a lenticular image, which means it appears like it's moving and the eyelashes and blinking! Inside, you'll find nine pigmented eye shadows that for a party-ready look.
Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette Collector in Savage Escape
The $60 price tag is worth it since this gorgeous eye shadow palette comes in a suede-topped compact! The inspiration: sun-bleached blue jeans. The actual shades were influenced by a woman driving through the desert in a beat-up car watching the colors at dawn. It's very specific, but also quite chic! You can bet these five hues will give you dreamy, Instagram-ready eyes — no filter needed.

Laguna fans, get ready for this one: the beloved bronzer has been paired with three limited-edition sheer, blendable blushes as well as a fuchsia 413 BLKR Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. The entire collection was inspired by Francois Nars's first flagship address in New York City's West Village neighborhood, so it has an edgy downtown feel.

Laura Geller The Delectables Collection in Smokey Neutrals
When "smoky" and "neutrals" are combined, we're pretty much always game to play. These baked shadows are special because they are liquid pigments hand-finished in Italy. Baking (rather than pressing) the shadows allows them to be used wet or dry. To use them wet, just dip your brush in water beforehand and do your thing. It can create a quick liquid liner or a long-wear, more pigmented shadow.
