Fall 2014 color cosmetic palette selections.

Let There Be Light

Perfect for all skin types and formulated with Drops of Light Technology; i.e., light-refracting microspheres and peptides, the IT Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette is filled with anti-aging ingredients like grapeseed, plum oil, cherry oil, hyaluronic acid and pomegranate.


Sonia Kashuk’s Eyeshadow Quad ($13.69) lets consumers shine bright with chic metallic shadows for fall. The combination of platinum, champagne, gold and bronze will create festive looks all season, said the company.

Pure Color

Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eye Shadow 5-color Palette ($50) evokes modern glamour with refined rich colors anchored in neutrality for the discerning and dynamic woman. Combinations range from Defiant Nude to Provocative Petal to Infamous Sky to Fierce Safari.

Shimmer and Shine

Cle de Peau Beaute’s Eye Color Quad ($80) is available in eight, shimmer shades with a compilation of four pairings. Key ingredients include white lily extract and argan tree oil.

Full Exposure

The Smashbox Full Exposure Palette features 14 “must-have” neutral shades—from nudes to blacks, longwearing shimmers to velvety-smooth mattes. With shimmers in the top row and mattes along the bottom, it's easy to turn up or tone down the luster.

Limited Edition

Lorac’s Elegant Orchid Collection ($29), a Kohl’s exclusive all September, is designed to create soft, romantic looks featuring Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid.

Mrs. Mia Wallace

Urban Decay co-founder and chief creative officer Wende Zomnir is a diehard “Pulp Fiction” fan, and with this year marking the 20th anniversary of the film, she wanted to commemorate the occasion the UD way. The inspiration was Mrs. Mia Wallace ($34), of course.

The color cosmetics sector is rife with an abundance of palettes for Fall 2014. Here’s a look at some leading offerings that will carry well into the gift-giving season—if they stay on shelves that long! See picks from Urban Decay, Sonia Kashuk and Estee Lauder, to name a few.
