10 best spring palettes

We love a good multi-tasking product at Stylist, so cute, clever and compact make-up palettes are always on our beauty wish-list. And, perhaps fittingly for a season obsessed with candy colours and girlish detail, Spring's fresh crop of compacts are perhaps the prettiest we've ever seen. So banish any remaining winter blues by browsing our pick of the new make-up palettes. Will you go for YSL's sugary purple hues, Guerlain's adorable floral compact, or Stila's Hawaiian-inspired shades?
