As the owner of a ridiculous amount of eyeshadow palettes (just at the tip of 50....) I found it understandably difficult to whittle down my favourite palettes, but I managed to do it!
So let's get into the questions!
1. Best Packaging?
Not off to a good start, but I've cheated and chosen two! They're both luxury eyeshadow quads that house some beautiful neutral colours.
The first is the Her Cocoa palette from the limited edition RiRi Hearts MAC collection that Rihanna did with MAC last October. I absolutely adore the rose gold casing with her logo printed on it. It also has a magnetic closing, which is always fun. It's a very sturdy palette without being bulky, so I love it for travelling.
2. Best Colour Payoff?
3. Most Versatile?
4. Best For Travelling?
I also love the NARS Ride Up To The Moon palette as I think the shades are perfect for both day and night wear. The colour selection is both practical yet beautifully unique at the same time. As you can tell from the picture, I dropped mine and cracked two of the shadows but they still work all the same! Unfortunately this palette was limited edition, but NARS release some fantastic palettes all year around so keep an eye out for them!
5. Biggest Regret?
I actually have to skip this question as I have absolutely no palettes that I regret buying! I don't tend to impulsively buy palettes, so I usually have done a good bit of research into them before I go and purchase them. I obviously have a few palettes that I don't use as often as I should, but I still wouldn't say I regret them!
6. Best Colour Names?
7. Least Used?
8. Most Loved, Most Used, Desert Island?
Without a doubt my original Naked palette! It was the first high-end piece of makeup I ever owned, and I got it about three years ago. I've loved and used it religiously ever since. It's one of those palettes that no matter how many new palettes I buy, I always find myself coming back to the comfort of my trusty Naked palette. There is not one look you can't do with it, and the pigmentation is absolutely incredible. I honestly couldn't imagine my makeup collection without my little Naked palette perched at the top of the eyeshadow drawer!
So that's it for my perfect palette tag! Feel free to answer the questions in the comments below or tell me your favourite palette!
