Tag | The Perfect Palette 2
Thursday, 14 April 2016in Beauty
Why am I totally blanking? Surely I must have a limited edition palette...I actually think the only limited edition palette I own is this year's Tarte blush palette from their holiday collection. Does that count? Its lovely.
Edit: I went home and checked. I actually *do* have a limited edition palette from the 2014 Laura Mercier Holiday Collection. It has a lovely neutral blush and the most lovely navy and amethyst shadows...
Biggest regret & least used
Honestly, probably the Balm Nude Tude. I regret it because I never use it (thus why I combined the two questions!) I forget how it came to my possession (possibly Birchbox Points?) anyways I thought I wanted it, but there is so much wasted space in the palette and the colours are so similar to Urban Decay's that I simply never ever reach for it.
Eyeliner, brush or nothing
A girl an never have enough brushes-- assuming it is a proper brush (like those found in the Naked palettes) and not a sponge tip applicator (the worst) (if that's the option I would literally rather have nothing)
Favourite “naked” palette
Either 1 (classic neutrals) or 3 (pinks and mauves). I just don't reach for 2 as often, but it is lovely!
A palette you would repurchase or wish you had a backup (if it is no longer available)
With out a doubt I would re-purchase Naked, once I run out of my favourite shade-- Sidecar.
A shade you wish was sold individually
Hahaha see above ^ (aka: Urban Decay Sidecar). But actually I rarely use my single shadows. I just find palettes easier to use.
Best for Travelling
(This is a wild card question where you get to choose a question from the original tag)
I know with my answers so far that you are probably expecting me to say "Urban Decay Naked" but lately I find that the long palette doesn't really fit well into my make-up bags. I think that any of the smaller Too Faced palettes are great for travel (my favourites being Boudoir Eyes and Natural Eyes). I really don't think I could pick a favourite as one is cool where as the other is warm neutrals. Both have a great mix of matte, shimmer, satin, dark, light and mid tones. They are a great size, no nonsense or wasted space and over all great quality. Love travelling. Love these palettes. All is good.
The palette you would recommend to a friend
That's a tough one! I always recommend Naked Basics to friends looking for their first high end eyeshadow palette. In fact I bought it for my 16 year old cousin for Christmas this year as an intro to Sephora for her. I told her that if she gets into college & enrols that I will buy her one of the larger ones. #incentives
