I have seen this before but I haven’t seen anyone do this in a while, so I thought for the end of March that I would do a really fun and exciting tag, while also trying to bring it back from the youtube graveyard. So, this one is all about palettes, whether they be eyeshadow, blush or and combination. So let’s mix it up and get into talking palettes.
This one has to go the Ace Beaute Slice of Paradise Palette, I just love the way that this one looks and think that it has the prettiest packaging which to me means that it has the best packaging. I think it’s got really fun colors, it’s really simple but still fun and all goes really well with the theming of this palette.
Best Color Payoff
I thought really hard about this one, I debated not doing something so new to me and maybe not doing something that is also colors, but I had to pick the Strobe Cosmetics Creepy Cute Palette. I don’t want to get too much into it because I do have a full review of this palette coming up next month, but I was blown away with the pigmentation of these eyeshadows, espcially considering that they are pastel but they do not mess around. So that is why I had to name it best color payoff.
I thought about what I wanted to pick for this one for a moment to, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go with something that had tons of colors or finishes, but instead I settled on going with a palette that I think works well with so many other eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes and that is the Lorac Pro Matte. This one is small and all neutrals, but I find these shadows go with tons of different palettes and really add to most looks. Though, by itself it can create some pretty nice looks as well.
Best for Traveling
While I know the obvious thing to pick with this one is an all in one palette, but honestly I don’t really own any because I find all in ones to be fine but you can only really create one or two looks with most of them, and I am not trying to do that even when traveling. So, instead I have settled on a newer palette that comes with all kinds of colors, it has a good range to be able to do any look while also seeming pretty sturdy, that one is the Makeup Revolution x Emily Noel The Wants Palette.
This one is pretty easy, the first thing that comes to mind is the Lorac I ❤ Brunch palette that I had to have. I did get it on sale, but I never use it. The pigmentation isn’t fantastic, all of the colors are really pastel and just don’t work great so I just don’t love it, but I keep around because there are three shades that I love in it and I really like the packaging, though I know I should let it go.
Best Color Names
I think the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice palette has the cutest names along with the cutest theming, I mean come on, all of the shadows are food related and I love that. Plus it reminds me of the holidays and I have completely used this since, so I have zero regrets about this one.
I am about to admit something, I have had this next one for a little while and I am not sure that I have ever touched it, so I think that makes it my least used. I have a Buxom custom color eyeshadow palette that is really pretty but I just don’t reach for and I am not sure what to do about it, probably use it but as of right now it is my least used palette.
This one was simple enough and probably a lot of peoples answer, this would have to be my Anastasia Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette. This one is just so easy to work with and it’s such a great formula so it would have to be my most used. I have four or five pans in this one I think.
I use this one a lot as well and I really just love it, it’s nothing fancy or too exciting but it is still a really good palette and give me tons of colors, it’s also my go-to when it comes to bright colors and that is my BH Cosmetics Take Me Back To Brazil Palette. I just really love this palette, it’s so easy to use and really inspires me to play with color, which I love doing so much now.
And those are all of my picks for the palette tag, a really fun mix of products though they are all eyeshadow palettes, which I didn’t mean to happen but it did. I just don’t have a ton of face palettes that I really think fit these questions, so that is why I didn’t share any. Anyway, I want to tag everyone who is reading this currently and if you do it, please tag me in it so I can check it out and read all of your answers.
What is your all-time favorite palette?
