The Perfect Palette tag



Hello my hunnies! I hope you've spent your New Year's eve the way you wanted and had a blast... and I wish you all the best in the year 2014! :) Now onto the tag... since you seemed to enjoy reading My ideal palette tag, I thought I might do the Perfect palette tag as well. I'm not gonna lie, the Ideal palette tag was much more exciting, but this one is also fun... Now enough of this jibber-jabber and onto the palettes.


1. Best packaging

As I mentioned in My ideal palette tag, the award for best packaging goes to theBalm Nude'tude eyeshadow palette. It's just so sleek and thin, closes very securely and does not open easily. Has a nice design and just great packaging in general. 





2. Best color payoff

This one was a bit tricky because I really don't own any eyeshadow palettes that have poor pigmentation/color payoff. I am (as you probably already know) a die hard Urban Decay fan and I think they make amazing eyeshadows. I currently own 3 palettes from them and all three are amazing, but the palette that has the best color payoff is probably the Naked palette. There is just not a single eyeshadow in there that has poor/lesser pigmentation. 





3. Most versatile

That would have to be the Vice2 palette. It has 20 eyeshadows, a whole row of neutrals and a bunch of colorful eyeshadows so you have the versatility to create a ton of different looks. It's a truly amazing palette and I've been using it all the time ever since I got it! :D





4. Best for traveling

I don't really travel a lot, the only traveling I usually do is going home to visit my family. But when I decide to take a palette with me, it's usually the Naked Basics palette, because it's just so small and travel friendly (it's smaller than my phone) yet it has all the colors you need to create a gentle, everyday look, or a more dramatic, smokey eye. Lovely little palette!





5. Biggest regret

I can't really say I regret buying any of my eyeshadow palettes but I kind of regret buying some of the Inglot eyeshadows. We don't have Inglot in my country, so my husband took me to Croatia on a little trip so I could pick up some eyeshadows. When we came to the store I was a bit overwhelmed by all the colors and couldn't really decide which ones to get. Then the sales lady informed me there was a 40% discount on the round eyeshadows (initially I wanted the square ones). Because there was such a huge discount I had to get the round ones, but unfortunately there weren't as much shades to choose from, as there were in the square form. I ended up creating two lovely palettes but they both lack the palette 'formation' - if each one would have a highlight, lid, crease, outer corner color, I would probably use them more often. But now they're just two palettes with lovely colors in them, colors that I have to combine with colors from other palettes, if I want to create a full look. So that's my regret - not choosing/creating my palettes more carefully. :)






6. Best color names

I think a lot of my palettes have great color names (I always love the names Urban Decay gives to their colors), but I would probably choose the Too Faced Romantic eye palette. It's a palette for gentle, romantic, bride/wedding looks, so it has appropriate names for the eyeshadows in it - I Do, Cut The Cake, First Dance, Honeymoon... :)





7. Least used

I don't use my Inglot palettes that much, but I have been trying to use them more often now... The least used would probably be BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic palette. It is a fairly new palette and I haven't had it for a long time, but after swatching it and creating one look with it, I kind of neglected it. It's more of a fun palette with great, colorful eyeshadows that I just don't use on a daily basis.





8. Most used

Without a doubt the Naked palette from Urban Decay. I've had it for about 3 years now and I use it all the time. Though, Vice2 is gaining up on it - I've been using it so much and I don't even have it that long. :)





9. Most loved

Again, definitely the Naked palette. It is my absolute favorite palette, ever! I love it to death! If I could only have one palette for the rest of my life, this would be it. :D





10. Desert island

Now, I know I probably wouldn't use any makeup, let alone eyeshadow, if I were stranded on a desert island, but let's just go along with this... :) I would probably have to say the Naked palette, again (I know, I know... you're getting sick of it). Though, I might want to take the Vice2, just to have more options. Ehhhh... this is hard... I'm gonna say Vice2 and that's that! :)





So here they are... my 'perfect' palettes, each in its own way. :) Do you own any of these palettes or would want to own? Have you done this tag, I would love to check it out...

  1. Waw, ogromno jih imaš. Pa jih tudi sama nimam ravno malo, hehe.

    Inglot so meni senčke super, sem jih kupila v Dubaju ampak paletk pa takraš še niso imeli....

    1. Ja, jih je kar nekaj... :)

      Saj to je to, Inglot so super senčke, samo nisem dobro izbrala barve oz. si oblikovala paletk. :D

  2. Vse palete so mi zanimive:) kako pa je z Inglot pigmentiranostjo?

    1. Vsaka po svoje... :D Inglot so odlične senčke s super pigmentacijo, jaz bi rekla, da si po kvaliteti delijo mesto z Urban Decay in Too Faced. :)

  3. Lep izbor, tudi jaz sem senčko-holik hehe, tako da meni se tvoja zbirka ne zdi presenetljivo velika, je pa res super izbor, sploh glede pigmentiranosti, ker kot malo brskam za mnenji oz. ocenami, je večina tvojih paletk še kako pohvaljena :)..

    Moje so bolj 'casual', 88 warm palette od BH kozmetike, to sem kupila še bolj na začetku navduševanja ličenja, nekaj MUA paletk, Sleek paletk, do vseh imam mešane občutke.. po eni strani lepi, topli odtenki (MUA), ampak bolj tako-tako pigmentiranost.. pri Sleek pa dobra obstojnost in barve, ampak zelo bleščičaste, medtem ko njihove in MUA mat senčila so mi bolj tako...

    Od Urban decay imam Basic Palette, mi je vedno bolj všeč... to pa je to, planiram nakup še kakšne od teh bolj pohvaljenih paletk, malo dražjih, pa se že dooolgo odločam, ker nočem kar nekaj na hitro... sanjarim o Naked 3, pa o Vice 2 (čeprav se mi zdi, da mi, na mojo žalost) zelo intenzivne barve ne pašejo preveč... Pa tudi Too faced se mi zdijo zanimive... Pa The Balm, ah skratka, veliko :D

    Uf sem se razpisala :)

    1. Ne, tudi meni se ne zdi pretirano velika kolekcija in tako mi je tudi všeč... Res ne maram, da mi reči ležijo in se na njih nabira prah. Sicer pa še nobeni senčki nisem prišla 'do dna', tako da moram kar lepo pridno ustvarjat MU look-e s temi, ki jih imam. :) Bo pa absolutno prišla še Naked3 v mojo zbirko, potem se bom pa potrudila malo umirit, čeprav dvomim, da ne bom našla še kakšne paletke, ki mi bo všeč. :)

      Če se odločaš za eno bolj high-end paletko, ti definitivno priporočam UD. Če so ti odtenki v Naked3 všeč, potem počakaj na to, drugače pa priporočam Naked oz. Naked2, če si za bolj hladne odtenke. Vice2 mogoče res izgleda zelo 'močna', ampak se da ustvariti čudovite izglede, tudi zelo naravne. :D

      In pa super, da si se razpisala, tvoje komentarje vedno z veseljem preberem, si ena najbolj pridnih. :D (aja, pa ni ti treba dvakrat pisati komentar, samo enkrat - najprej se ne pokaže, potem ko pa jaz odobrim komentar, pa postane viden)

  4. Spodnja Inglot paleta je gorgeous, je pa pri meni tudi najbolj uporabljena Naked, vsaj zaenkrat še :) Bom pa še enkrat rekla, da rabim Nude tude :)

    1. Ja, saj sta mi obe Inglotovi paletki super, ampak ju nekako zanemarjam... :S Naked je top od top! Nude'tude je pa super paletka, ampak se po kvaliteti za moje pojme ne more primerjat z UD - ene senčke so sicer fantastične, jih pa je nekaj, ki so bolj tako-tako.

  5. Uf hvala tudi za tole iskreno mnenje glede Nude tude, me je mikala, ampak vedno manj, sem prebrala še par mnenj o tem, da so bolj tako tako..

    1. Vsekakor bolj priporočam Naked oz. katero paletko od UD. :D

  6. Ja, Naked paletka je res super. Jaz sem zdaj na lovu za tretjo (upam, da jo dobim v Londonu), pa tudi Inglot senčke grem nabavljati za moj kit. Že zdaj vidim kako bom bla zmedena od vseh tistih barv... XD

    1. Najboljša! Naked3 si pa močno želim, ampak ni še nikjer (meni) na voljo...

      Ja, mene je izbira senčk v Inglot trgovini precej zmedla - lahko bi zbirala ure in ure. :)

      Delete
  7. Jaz bi tudi Inglot senčke, dobr da si to povedala, da je treba mal razmišljat pri izbiranju barv. Jaz bi verjetno izbrala tako kot ti, tisto kar mi je všeč, potem pa ne bi uporabljala, ker nimam za cel look senčk :)

    1. Super so, res zelo kvalitetne senčke. Meni so bile kvadratne bolj všeč, čeprav so seveda okrogle enako dobre. Čeprav gre za čudovite senčke, dvomim, da bom še kdaj zavila v njihovo trgovino (razen če se bo kje pri nas odprla), ker jih preprosto ne uporabljam dovolj oz. raje uporabljam UD paletke. :)

  8. Ohhh, škoda za Inglot... Pojdi še enkrat v trgovino in kupi 5 takšnih senčk, da boš potem imela tri izpopolnjene palete in jih uporabljala :D

    1. Ah, saj ni tako hudo... saj so super senčke in se kar trudim, da jih uporabljam, ampak mislim, da ne bom nobenih več kupila oz. sestavljala 'svoje' paletke, imam raje 'že pripravljene' UD paletke. :D
