5 Alternatives To This $63 Sold-Out Holiday Palette

You always want what you can’t have — especially when it comes to beauty products. That’s why we’re getting the inside scoop from your favorite retailers on what’s selling out right now, how to sign up for waitlists, and where to go to find the next best thing. Because if everyone’s buying it, you know it has to be good.

We haven't even hit Halloween, but our excitement for new holiday makeup is already in overdrive. Case in point: Givenchy's limited-edition La Palette Eclats Nocturnes palette — a gorgeous star-shaped eyeshadow trio — has sold out at not one, not two, but three retailers since its launch earlier this month.

Givenchy is known for creating beautiful holiday palettes, often around metallics and stars, but they're more than just pretty faces. The three glittery shades here are extremely versatile — the bronze and gold hues can be worn all over the lid during the day, then smoked out in the evening with the iridescent purple shadow. There's one caveat, though: These shadows won't give you heavy pigment in one swipe; they work best when layered for more opacity.

Sadly, the trio is sold out at Sephora, Neiman Marcus, and Barneys New York, so if you missed your chance to buy and now need these shades in your life (or maybe you just don't want to fork over $63), we picked five palettes that will give you a similar vibe.

Urban Decay's Moondust Eyeshadows are some of the best glitters on shelves thanks to the impressive shade range and tightly packed formula which goes on with next to no fall-out. Pick up Ether, Midnight Blast, and Space Cowboy for your own take on Givenchy's trio.

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshdaow in Ether, $21, available at Sephora.
Nyx's new metallic palette has some of the same purple and orange-y tones found in Givenchy's palette, in addition to soft pastels and earthy neutrals that'll let you create just about any look.

Nyx Cosmetics In Your Element Shadow Palette in Metal, $30, available at Nyx Cosmetics.
ColourPop's Super Shock single eyeshadows tick all the boxes: They're intensely pigmented, come in dozens of neutral and bold shades, and each pan costs less than a roundtrip subway ticket. Take your pick from the array of purple, gold, and bronze hues in the brand's lineup.

Pro Tip: For sheer washes of color, use an eyeshadow brush with these. If you're a fan of more intense pigment, though, use your ring finger to pack the shadow directly onto your lids.

ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Bow Down, $5, available at ColourPop.
Think of this palette as a more subdued version of Givenchy's trio. Although the shadows don't contain any obvious glitter, the shimmery colors can still be used to create natural and smoky looks.

NYC HD Color Trio Eye Shadow in Late Night Latte, $3.60, available at Walmart.
This palette holds all the rich purple and warm sunset shades your heart could desire. The powder formula is insanely pigmented, so go in with a light hand before sweeping the shades onto your lids.

Coloured Raine Queen Of Hearts Palette, $50, available at Coloured Raine.
