Temptalia Asks You

What was your favorite pre-made palette? It can be a combo palette, just eyes, a quad, but something with multiple products sold together!

It was the Thunder Eyes quad with Sketch, Rye, Scarab, and Thunder in it. Rye and Scarab are two of my very favorite shadows–I actually don’t have the quad, though I ended up buying all the shadows separately, LOL.

    I wish I could get a hold of the Thunder Eyes quad at an affordable price.

    I love the UD e/s palettes, as well as the NARS full face palettes-they also had that Night series e/s palette which was really great.

    As far as MAC quads go, I’ve only got one, and it’s the Gentle Fume quad, which I love for the most part-except for the really glittery grey that just doesn’t seem to work for me.

    I love the smoking signals quad. I find that it’s the palette I reach for the most when I don’t have a lot of time.

    Gosh, I just love palettes. I think my favorite lip palette is the Viva Glam Warm Lips from this past winter, and my favorite eye palette would be just about anything from Fresh — maybe Lost World or Winter Picnic.

    I have lots of palettes and love them all!
    One of my favorites would be Bobbi Brown Beach Beauty Palette from a couple of summers ago, I love all the shades in it. I wish I had the smoking eyes quad from Smoke Signals, it looks so pretty.

    I can’t remember the name of it but the Urban Decay one which is silver with a purple skull on the front.
    It was the first palette i’ve ever bought and I used every single colour, If I didn’t have most of them separately now I’d buy it again! :o)

    I love the tarte a list palette…it is gorgeous and can make a ton of different looks

    I love my Thunder Eyes Quad. JackA, they still sell this quad on Ebay, if you want one. I just bought another one since my was getting pretty used up.

    I love my Smokey eyes palette, (velvet I think is the one I got) It really helped me with the smokey eye application and It has a lot of great colors that I can use alone.
    I also bought my friend a UD eye palette recently for her birthday (Urban Ammo) and it has some great colors. She almost didn’t get it. HA!

    The Weather Girl palette by Benefit that came out a couple of years ago. It’s AWESOME. If I had to pick a favorite, that would be the one. The lip and eye colors ROCK.

    Definitely the Thunder Eyes.

    When it comes to Quads I’m always a chicken and never buy it at the counter when I have the chance. I always buy it later from Ebay. LOL

    First runner-up in my book is the Smoking Eyes Quad! :)

    Glazed Garnet from Jill Stuart Japan – comprises of baby pink,light purple,authum green and dark purple (all with glitters)

    My favorite pre-made palettes are those Too Faced Quickie Chronicles. I have nearly all of them (full size!), my favorites are The Starlette, The Heartbreaker, The Temptress, The Cupcake, Plaything of Passion, and The Jet Setter.
    My favorite MAC palettes are the Tempt Me quad, the Formal Black Intense Eyes palette and the Tailormade Cool Lips Palette.
    I love the Nars Fame Lipstick palette, YSL Horizon and the Shiseido Earth and Sky quad. I’ve worn it all the time for the past 3 years and yet still have enough left to not warrant buying a new one just yet.

    I have two favorite eye palettes, the first of which is Thunder Eyes, which I resisted initially (I think I remember your initial thoughts on it Christine) but I just kept lemming and lemming and went back and bought the last quad at my MAC store, whew! I love that I can do a great work eye or even take it wild for going out.

    My other is Tarte A list which I picked up on ebay for essentially retail. So versatile and love the nonsticky glosses too. I’ve never found a lipgloss palette I love, although I am partial to the VG palette from a few years ago that is kind of Asian styled—it looks really cute on the outside and has a mirror. I just don’t like using lip palettes, they tend to get kind of gross IMO.

    • Isn’t it amazing how sometimes we do a complete turnabout on a produt later on? I did not like that palette at all, but now how times have changed!

    right now it is two Dior quints:

    -Moonray : an old quint with soft colors (blue/pink/yellow/green, violet in the middle). Makes a nice fresh-for-work colors. Too bad it’s been phased out..

    -Pink May : iridescent colors for an evening/more glitter makeup :)
