    Now that the holiday hoopla has officially come and gone, we're not ashamed to admit that we've already started the countdown to spring. There's nothing like the idea of March breezes, sprouting flowers, and, duh, pretty, pretty spring makeup shades to get us psyched for the change of seasons.

    To give us all a jump-start on getting into the spring state of mind, we rounded up the newest and coolest makeup palettes for your gawking pleasure. From Bobbi Brown's shimmery nude-eyeshadows quad to Sephora's hot-weather-perfect mix of brights and bronzes, these collections are basically portable vacations.The best part?
