A shadow palette you'll want to keep for yourself

A few weeks ago the beauty world was abuzz with the debut of Urban Decay’s Naked3 Palette and its array of rose-hued neutral shades—which is why it’s sold out everywhere. If you weren’t among the lucky ones who snatched one up, fret not, because we found something equally—if not more—amazing: Clarins’ “The Essentials” Eye Palette.

Packed with 10 universally flattering neutral hues, this limited-edition palette combines matte, pearl and satin finish shadows that were selected to work together, no matter the look you create. You get colors that range from light to dark so you can highlight, contour and line your eyes to your heart’s content with just this one set. In eco-friendly terms, Clarins has Urban Decay beat, since purchasing this holiday offering helps support the brand’s initiative to preserve the Brazilian Kuntanawa culture and ecosystem by planting 10,000 trees that have both medicinal and cosmetic uses. So go ahead and give a gift that gives back this year!
