Makeup palettes genuinely make me happy. Especially when they’re really good makeup palettes—the ones where you don’t leave a single pan untouched. I have my favorites: a customizable one from M.A.C. I recently made to fit my everyday color scheme; the buzzy Becca x Jaclyn Hill face palette that launched in May (and totally lives up to the hype), and the newest in my collection—an eye-shadow palette from Stowaway Cosmetics that’s literally the size of a credit card.
The brand is known for its tiny makeup that’s perfect for travel or just on-the-go, but there’s something especially impressive about a full-blown (but mini) eye-shadow palette. Even more impressive is the fact that the shades are lovely and pigmented. Out of the eight colors, there are three neutral champagne tones with hints of glitter, one dark plum, three matte browns, and a smoky black. The pack comes with a dual-sided brush (one side is fluffy, the other is firm), so it’s everything you need for nearly every eye look. And it fits in your wallet. You might just need this thing more than cash.
