Cheek palettes come in a variety of sizes, shades, and formulas. Many focus only on blush shades, with some including only matte blushes. Others offer both matte and shimmer shades. Most cheek palettes include at least three different shades, while larger palettes can have six or even eight different shades. Many brands offer smaller palettes in a variety of complementary cheek colors that can be used together or alone. Some cheek palettes offer shades that can also be used for bronzing, contouring, and highlighting. It’s important to note the quality of the product along with the price. Often less expensive cheek palettes don’t have the same color pigmentation or lasting power as pricier palettes. Cheek palettes are a great way to tailor your look to match the occasion, your lip or eyeshadow color, or the season.
