1. Maybelline New York the Blushed Nudes Palette
This is the dupe of the famous Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. The colors look perfect on all skin tones. Some shades have a light touch of shimmer, while others are matte. The colors blend perfectly and they stay put for quite a few hours. A must have for makeup lovers!
2. Makeup Revolution Ultra Cover and Conceal Palette

5. L.A Girl Beauty Brick Blush
This one is absolutely love! It has 4 shades- Glow, Pinky, Spice, Glam; so there is something for every skin tone. The color payoff is good, stays on for long and does not irritate sensitive skin. However, it does not come with an applicator.
6. MUA Paint Box Lip Palette
This lip palette comes in 3 shades: Beige Nudes and Honey Browns, Imperial Plums and Rose Rouge. All the colors are highly pigmented, although one may need to reapply after meals. But other than this, the lipsticks last for a long time and the quality is amazing!
7. Makeup Revolution 32 Eyeshadow palette

Eyes Like angels has bright, vibrant colors, Flawless has mostly glittery shades and Flawless 2 has a majority of light shades.
8. NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette
This one has three shades, but if you love smoky eyes, then the Smoky and Highlight shade is something that you will absolutely love! It has a good color payoff, the shades don’t fade away easily and give beautiful results! The other two shades are Brights and Warm Neutrals.
9. L.A Girl Brick Eyeshadow
