Hey guys! How’s your week going?
I’m feeling much better… except for this nagging cough/congestion, but it’s gradually going away (take your own sweet time, why don’t you?).
So today’s post is going to be the sequel to The Perfect Palette Tag I did last month. I’ve seen this part 2 floating around YouTube and other blogs.. and just yesterday one of my favorite YouTubers, Emily from Beauty Broadcast did it and put in the description box “If you’re reading this… consider yourself tagged!” So by default, I was tagged by Emily (LOL!).
Got more palette questions and answers, so grab yourself a beverage and let’s get going!
Eyeliner, Brush or Nothing?
This question pertains to what you like best accompanying an eye palette. I’d have to go with a brush… if it’s a good quality one. Most brushes that come with eye palettes aren’t very good at all. The only exception are the ones from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Those usually come with a pretty good quality double-ended brush.
Palette you’ve hit pan on?
I’ve actually hit pan on a few palettes. In my Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette, I’ve hit pan on a matte light mauve shade (works great in the crease or as a transition shade). In the original Lorac Pro palette, I’ve hit pan on the shade Mauve (sensing a trend here?) and in the Lorac Pro 2 palette, I’ve hit pan on Lt Brown and Nectar.
Favorite Naked palette?
I actually don’t own any of the Naked palettes, except for the Naked On The Run one. But I do love the look of Naked 3 as I’m obsessed with rose gold and warm, rosy toned shadows.
Favorite holiday or limited edition palette?
I can’t pick just one. I’m going to have to say the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna palette from the fall of 2014 and the Lorac Mega Pro 2.
Palette you would repurchase or wish you had a backup of (if no longer available)?
I really don’t know. I have so many palettes I already know I’ll never finish them all off. Part of me would say the ABH Tamanna palette, but thankfully most of the shades in that palette are now sold as individual shadows, so if I ever run out of any of my favorites (like China Rose or Bengal), I can just get a single to pop in my Z Palette.
Shade you wish was sold individually?
I have a few picks – and they’re all from the Lorac Mega Pro 2. Goji (matte pinkish-red), Cabernet (matte dark burgundy wine) & Olivine (shimmery silvery golden olive – it’s such a unique shade!).
Wild Card (Pick a question from the original tag to answer here)
From the original tag, I’m picking the following question to answer again: Best color payoff?
And my answer is the same as last time… Lorac shadows! They are so amazingly pigmented and have such gorgeous color payoff. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Lorac makes some of the very best eyeshadows out there, bar none.
Palette you would recommend to a friend?
I have 4 I would recommend – The Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye palette (it’s the perfect all-matte palette), the original Lorac Pro (great mix of mattes & shimmers), the Makeup Revolution Girls on Film palette (affordable, beautiful shades and good quality) and the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette (amazing quality & super affordable). And I’ve actually recommended each of these palettes to friends and family too.
And that’s it!
You want to do this tag? Consider yourself tagged then! I hope you have as much fun with this one as I did.
As always, thank you all so much for reading and your support. I hope the rest of your day is a good one and I’ll see you guys again Friday with a new post! 🙂
