The In The Know palette by Stila is packed with warm toned mattes. Worth checking out if thats what you’re after, it works especially well with blue eyes.

I’ve been wanting to try that one for a while but it’s soooo hard to get here in my state, I live in México way over the south but I’m gonna try a lot harder to get my hands on that one too 😀

Wow , your shade selection almost made me crazy and i wish you create something like this in association with brands like Guerlain 🙂
I would be the first one to pick it up and a backup too 🙂

my dream palette would consists shades like – emerald green , violet with multi color shimmer , a peach gold shade , matte raspberry purple shade , transition color like chocolate brown in two three variations and a highlighter which is in matte and shimmery form something like MAC Brule and Nylon

I would love a 10 eyeshadow palette – 5 shades in metallic/satin finishes and 5 of the same/very, very similar colors in matte to mirror each other.
Shade 1 – Very pale peachy pink
Shade 2 – Rich warm gold
Shade 3 – Medium pewter/grey color
Shade 4 – Blue based rich purple
Shade 5 – Smokey soft black

Right now, I’m thinking add the taupe from Wet n Wild Silent Treatment into the new Naked 3. I don’t ever wear blues or greens, and not many purples so that’s how I’d lean. I also use MAC Vex a lot, so maybe work it in there instead of one of the glittery shades.

Would love to have lots of bright colors with shimmer and few matt neutral colors. Right now whats coming in my mind is urban decay the mother lode palette.. if u can call it a palette then lol..

I would totally buy that, Christine! I would include many different cool toned browns and taupes and definitely a mauve one too. Preferrably all matte!

I like between 10-15 shades. I would probably like to see a lot of shimmery golds and champagnes, but with an olive and something pinky and orange toned. I would also like there to be a few matte shades: warm brown and mauve.

It would be a mix of urban decay and mac eyeshadows, so it would be UD shroom, sin, sidecar, half baked, toasted, knight divine, and MAC satin taupe, sumptuous olive, club, cranberry, coppering and prussian

I would totally buy your ideal palette! I have auburn hair and green eyes, so I love colors like olive green and gold and pewter. Who do we need to convince to hire you to make that palette happen? 😀

Anyone who is awesome at eyeshadow, LOL! 😉 I’d love to do a palette with a brand like bareMinerals (Ready eyeshadows!) or Urban Decay. Good formulas, well-versed in creating palettes, fairly accessible, and not too expensive.

I think you could do it with UD. They let you create your own pallet from their existing permanent single shades. Bobbi Brown also lets you create your own pallets using eyeshadows and blushes in the square containers
I just find her permanent eye shadow selection a little limiting. The MAC freestanding stores and the website allow you to buy pro pans to put on pallets. I have about ten MAC shadows in individual containers taking up too much space on my tiny bathroom shelf! I wish they sold them in pop out packaging like BB does. I have to give her a lot of credit for that convenience! If you find you have a bunch of individual shades you like, you can always buy the pallet later and just pop them in. You can also rearrange them, take some out and put others in, say if you want certain colors for a vacation or something. You can do that with MAC too, but you had to have bought the pans that go in the pallet initially . Once I had a few MAC shades that matched, it seemed silly to buy the next one in a pro pan to put in a pallet alone. And its not realistic to think I will use them all up and then refill with pans, so I am kind of stuck with MAC. But the ability to make your own custom eye shadow palette is out there. We could use your suggestions, Christine, if you put a few together, maybe from a few different lines, and reviewed them here!

Why don’t you depot? It’s unbelievably easy with mac shadows, when I first got into makeup I bought mac singles before I knew about their pro pallets, I now buy only the pro pallets (although tbh I don’t buy much mac anymore) and have depotted all my old singles and and b2med the packaging 🙂 hth

How do you do it? Which pallet do you put them in? I would love to do that. Then I could put the shades together that go together, and not have a pile up in my BR! I just recently got into MAC shadows, and eyeshadow in general. I used to just put a swip of blush across my eyelids and run out the door ( I usually use brown toned blushes, so it worked). I look more washed out now when I don’t wear eyeshadow. I avoiided MAC shadows because the first light base color I bought caused a crepey look on my eyelids. Now I realize that not all the colors do that, and they really do have the best selection of colors. I’m a redhead, and lines like Bobbi Btown, which makes amazing shadows that don’t crease in the least, just don’t have the range of warm colors that I need. Also, her light colors do not show up at all. So maybe MAC changed their formula or maybe some colors are different, but I am having a lot of fun with their colors now.

After watching Laura Mercier, Clarins, Chanel, and UD release palettes too warm or dark for my complexion, I feel like beggars shouldn’t be choosers, so I’d take anything cool-toned and neutral at this point. 😛

My fantasy palette would probably have about 10-12 shades in it with mostly subtle finishes: matte beige, matte greige, peachy pink satin/metallic, light and cool toned satin taupe, medium-dark taupe with strong grey undertones, metallic silver with a touch of blue, satin dark taupe with plummy undertones, matte medium-dark grey, dark matte brown, pewter or gunmetal shade, and a soft matte black.

Sigh. Yours sounds pretty much perfect. I’d probably add a deep velvety black matte for lining, and one or two cream eyeshadows (maybe golden beige and duochrome purple?) as bases.

I actually have a few ‘dream’ eyeshadow palettes. I am constantly depotting large palettes from other brands and rearranging them into Z Palettes. You can fit so much more into a Z Palette without all the bulky packaging. And this works for all types of products, not just eyeshadows!
