BrokenshadowMany drugstore cosmetic companies have been releasing larger palettes lately. No, I’m not talking about your typical Wet n’ Wild 8-pan palette! Brands like Maybelline and L’Oreal have been releasing 12-pan palettes to compete with the likes of Urban Decay’s Naked, Lorac’s Pro and Anastasia Beverly Hill’s palettes.

Maybelline has three great 12-pan palettes: Nudes, Brights and Smokes. The Nudes Palette ($9.99) was curated to create infinite looks with bold beiges, sultry sands, brazen bronzes, and over the top taupes.


The Brights Palette contains bold, bright shades ranging from purples to turquoise blue.

The Smokes Palette contains dark and metallic shades to create the perfect smoky eye.

SmokesMaybelline is also set to release a Blushed Nudes Palette, which contains rosy-toned neutral shadows with a few plum and pinky shades.

L’Oreal will also launch their La Palette Nude in the US. This palette contains neutral and smoky shades. It is currently only available in the UK (they get all the good stuff), but will be available in the US this year.
