An all-in-one makeup palette is indispensable; after all, bringing five different products along with you is unrealistic, especially if they aren’t travel size. Face palettes are super popular now, but with so many options, it can be hard to find one that does everything you need.
But no more of that searching high and low! Here at QUILL, we believe in making it easy to find all-in-one makeup products, like face palettes. So, we’ve put together a collection of 13 that will give you a glow, flush, or simply neutralize your face – whatever you need, you’ll find here!
tarte truly outdid themselves with their Clay Play Face Shaping Palette. It’s massive, coming with everything you need: nine eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, and highlighter all fit within one palette. Each powder is infused with Amazonian clay to help with sebum control, so you don’t have to worry about looking oily. It’s not travel-size, so don’t expect to slip it into your purse for touch-ups. However, if you have the space, it’s a good investment for your makeup drawer!
I remember falling in love with the magic of Fantasia, so to see it brought to life decades later in a makeup palette? The joy is immeasurable. And I’m so glad it was done with ONE/SIZE, because I fully believe that Disney is for everyone – so who better to partner with than an inclusive brand? Experience two highlighters, four neutral eyeshadows, one light and one dark matte blush (inclusivity!), and one light and one dark blush with sheen to it for total glow.
If it’s from Physicians Formula, you know it’s good for ya – and I’m not just saying that for the rhyme. In the Butter Dream Team Palette, the buttery powders are infused with murumuru, cupuaçu, and tucuma butters to give you the softest, most comfortable application; when on, your skin will revel in the conditioning it receives. Enjoy two bronzers, two blushes, one highlighter, and one face powder to dab across your face for an even, cohesive look.
As someone who lives in California, the name of this stood out to me. Then I looked at what was included, and I knew I would be sold if I didn’t have that already-there Cali glow (#humblebrag, #ilovemystate). The powders are universal – brush them on wherever for the glow you desire – with fun names, like Poolside Posh and Cabana Bae. SO California, and I love it.
Ah, yes, the height of luxury – right at Sephora. This all in one face palette uses satin finishes to give you a dewy, radiant look without the need for shimmer and sparkle. It contains a blush, two strobing powders, and two finishing powders to give your face the ultimate assist in any lighting. None of that “it looked so good in the mirror, and then I stepped outside!” shit – ANYWHERE is That Mirror using this face palette.
Unlike most of the face palettes on this list, MAC’s palette is filled with concealers to correct even the patchiest, zit-tiest skin out there. There are six different palettes ranging from light to extra deep, so no one has to feel resigned to a shade that kiiiiinda works with their skin tone. On top of four concealers, there are two correctors for the most even skin.
It’s Dior, it’s dynamite, it’s daring, it’s delicious, it’s the dream. $115 seems pricey, but if you have the budget, this is the all-in-one palette to splurge on. The limited edition palette (get it now!) comes with blush, eyeshadow, bronzer, and highlighter, like most palettes. Unlike most palettes, it also comes with four lip shades, so you can go from bare-faced to glam with one product. Housed in a couture case, you’ll feel every bit elite whenever you bring it with you for application.
It wouldn’t be PÜR if it didn’t come as a 4-in-1, right? Their Perfecting Powders Face Palette comes in three four-pan palettes: fair-light, medium-tan, and dark-deep. In the palette, you’ll find bronzer, blush, highlighter, and setting powder (which doesn’t come in most palettes, as you’ll see!). Inside: PÜR’s Energy Complex, which is filled with ingredients like green tea, ginseng, and vitamin B to fight aging and give you a glow.
Thank you stila for giving us a color corrector palette that also comes with shades to accent your features – not just hide. Whether you have acne, dark circles, red splotches, hyperpigmentation, or grey patches, this palette will give you natural, even-looking skin. Each pan is a cream with the exception of the purple powder, meant for brightening yellow undertones. It also has a delicious formula, filled with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as a bio-mineral complex for anti-aging, minimizing pores, and moisturizing without triggering oil.
Primrose is a small palette that manages to fit everything you need for a full face of makeup. Grapefruit and Saddle are your main squeezes (pun intended) – large pans of blush to keep those cheeks extra rosy. There are four shimmery eyeshadows in pink and champagne colors, so your eyes will pop, plus matte powders to help contour. The shades are buttery, giving a smooth application with either a brush or your fingers – perfect for on-the-go!
This is the perfect palette for on-the-go application, because each piece of the bento-box replica – which comes with pressed powder blush and highlighter, as well as a cream bronzer – allows for finger application. Correct: no brush necessary here. Simply throw it in your bag and give yourself touch-ups whenever necessary.
Everything you need is included in this eye-cheek-overall-face palette, including highlighter, bronzer, two blushes, and three shadows. Ultimately, you’ll have a natural glow packed in one rectangle. The powders are buildable, so you can go from slight sheen to major intensity. It’s “Inclusive” for all skin tones, though we’d be lying if we said it’s completely acceptable to call one palette “Inclusive” in 2022 when you don’t offer a variety of shades. Come on now, Milani.
