Probably ten eyeshadows, with one row being more neutral and the other row being pops of color. I’m thinking: a soft beige, satiny highlighter shade, medium-dark taupe brown, antique gold, luxuriously dark chocolate brown with bronze sheen, earthy olive green for neutrals and rich, decadent emerald green, blue-based teal, fuchsia pink, iridescent cool-toned violet, and warm yellow shimmered with pale gold. I might just do all brights – because I kind of want a bold royal blue and tangerine orange with copper shimmer, too!

i would probably like a quad, with a satiny greige colour,a matte skincolour highlight, a smoky greyed brown and a shimmer NOT glitter finish deep orange copper πŸ™‚

10 colors: emerald green, olive green, deep royal purple, vibrant purple, medium-deep plum, champagne, antique gold, neutral tan, medium taupe and dark (almost black) brown.
Metallic & satin finish only, no sparkle!

I’d love to make a palette that was all shimmery iridescents/two-tones. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-12 colors. I’d probably focus on brighter colors, but a chameleony taupe wouldn’t be out of place in such a collection. πŸ˜‰

A mix of matte and shimmery neutrals from very light to very dark and some of my favorite more vibrant colors, like light and dark plums/purples, a navy color, some greens.

I’d like a palette with 10 colors:

5 neutrals (preferably cool):
two highlights: one on the pinky side and one on the champagne side
two medium colors: medium grey and medium brown
a dark brown-black.

As for the 5 colors, I’d like them to be medium in intensity and muted.

It would be shimmery-only, for one thing. A lot of greige colors, plum, lavender, lime, gold, navy, and pink. That’s not ten, but I could do with varying shades of those colors. :3

yay, it’s my question!

your eyeshadow palette sounds gorgeous πŸ™‚

I’d like a smokey eye 5-pan: matte ivory, matte nude, matte black, satin highlight, silvery sparkle that can be used as an overlay

This is a fantasy of mine, as I’m very hard to please in the eyeshadow department and can rarely find exactly what I want in a single palette. I’m thinking a 16-pan (like the original Book of Shadows): slightly frosty pale neutral lavender, medium purple/pink duochrome, light violet shimmer, almost-black violet shimmer, sheer white with opalescent effect, neutral metallic silver, slightly frosty medium charcoal, shimmery black, warm pale green pearl, gold-shimmered warm green, a la UD Absinthe, warm forest green shimmer, sheer gold-shimmered cotton candy pink, warm pinky-bronze pearl, deep earthy warm brown with diffuse golden microsparkle, sheer but buildable pale indigo, and slightly cool-toned hot pink shimmer.

Whew. I think I need a nap now.

If I had that, I could scrape by with one trio and two singles. πŸ˜€

I would use bright tropical colors like lemon, tangerine, coral and a shot of lime or turquoise. Or I’d go the metallic route with molten shades of gold, copper or bronze.

I would love to have a palette that has some beautiful green tones. I feel like I don’t have NEARLY enough greens πŸ™‚

Mine would have a mix of bold, bright colours and a little more neutral ones (although they would all be cool toned), as well as soft greens, purples and blues. The majority would be matte or semi-matte, although some would also have glitters in them.

omg Christine. Please make that palette asap hahah.

But I’d probably make a mixture of things I’ve found look good on me. Emerald green, violet purple, warm brown with gold glitter (that actually translates onto the lid!). Other colors are escaping me right now, but you get the idea!

Wow sounds gorgeous Christine!

I’d design a palette in tribute to Elizabeth Taylor – a piercing collection of blues and violets to evoke her incredible eyes.

I’d have a 15 shadow palette with…. Matte cream, pinky satin champagne,pale satin cream gold, matte light brown, matte medium brown, simmery chocolare brown, satin copper, matte black, shimmer aqua, satin cool tone purple, dark mauve (matte),satin navy, satin taupe, matte gray
