Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Too Faced Chocolate Bar
Favorite blush palette of all time? Tarte Off The Cuff Palette
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? Tarte Aqualillies Palette

I have the Tarte Aqualillies palette also. I almost didn’t get it because I thought the blush would be awful on me but it’s not and that whole palette is so terrific. Kind of a shame it was LE.

Favorite blush palette of all time? BeneFit Cheeky Sweet Spot (it’s the only blush palette I’ve ever owned! But I do really love it.)

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep/Dark NW47

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? That’s a hard question! I have two…The one that I made myself that has MAC, Makeup Geek, and mostly Coastal Scents eyeshadow pans. Their mostly neutral colors. My second one is the Amrezy Palette. It’s one of the only palette that I own that has a warm brown transition shade in it.

Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? I don’t own one!

I’m yellow-toned light-medium to medium.

Fave eyeshadow palette is kind of hard — I have a couple that I love but use less because they are too bold for everyday looks (Sleek’s Sunset, Arabian Nights). But for now, in real life, my most worn and loved is WnW’s Comfort Zone. I got it for the green shadows but ended up using the brown/burgundy side more! Works wonderfully when paired with IsaDora’s Matte Chocolates, which has great neutral mattes for contouring and blending almost any look. As for blush palettes, I still love e.l.f.’s Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzer Duo but I find the blushes just too subtle while the bronzers are nice and pigmented.

I don’t really have all-in-one palettes, but I just got Sleek’s Dancing Til Dusk Eye & Cheek Palette though and it has the potential to become the next go-to thing! I have just tested it out and worn it for a week and it is SO handy.

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral (Maybelline Fit Me 110); dark-featured.

Eyeshadow Palette: UD Black Palette; I don’t use it alone, but it really fills in the gaps with many othernpalettes.

Blush Palette: The only one I own is my custom MAC double-sided palette, whoch includes: Animal Instincts, Pink Cult, Taupe, Taupe Shape, & Next To Skin. The other side includes 2 Sculpting Powders & 3 Shaping Powders.

All-In-One Palette: NYX Butt Naked “eyes”; it’s completely “mistake-proof” with my coloring, and I don’t have to even think about what to use together. All shades work well together, regardless of the combination, and because the shadows are buildable, it’s difficult to be too heavy-handed. The blush/bronzer/highlighter are also wearable, although not my ideal picks-at least I can use them in a pinch.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool-toned
Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? a toss-up between Naked 1 and Naked 2
Favorite blush palette of all time? the closest thing I have to a blush palette is MAC’s Hark the Heraldry (from A Tartan Tale) and Sephora’s Bronzed and Blushing face palette and I like both of those pretty equally
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? Has to be Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland!

Your skin tone/coloring: light with yellow undertones (Chanel B20)
Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? This is so difficult! I love eyeshadow palettes, I would even consider myself a collector I have so many. Maybe the Lorac Mega Pro. It covers most looks I would ever want to do & more! Honourable mentions to Marc Jacobs Beauty palettes, UD Nakeds & Tarina Tarantino palettes!
Favorite blush palette of all time? Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush palette – unbeatable in my opinion!
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? I think the Tarte Matte-nificent palette. I like that it’s matte & the colours are flattering on my, it contains a nice blush, and eye liner options (although truthfully I don’t mind using an eye shadow for liner anyway)

NC 15
I really loved my Urban Decay BOS2
Too Faced Bronze and Beautiful (sun bunny, snow bunny, and pink leopard)
Naked on the Run is the only one I’ve really tried

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Urban Decay Vice 2, though I also love Kat von D Sinner and Tarina Tarantino Emerald Pretty a lot.
Favorite blush palette of all time? I don’t own any.
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? The only one I own is Urban Decay Anarchy face case, and I do love it.

Your skin tone/coloring: Cool-neutral vampire

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Probably the UD Naked 2 in terms of what I use often, although I don’t actually own *that* many palettes.

Favorite blush palette of all time? I don’t actually have a blush *palette*, so I’m just going to do a plug for my fabvourite blush, Chanel Affinite! ^_^

Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? Probably one of the travel ones I have from Lancome. The quality is really excellent, and the colour selection is always very versatile. I do have a soft spot for the Tarte Rainforest After Dark palette, but without lipstick, mascara, powder and eyeliner, I’m not sure if it technically counts as truly all-in-one…

Your skin tone/coloring: NC50
Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? LORAC Pro Palette

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time?: UD Naked2
Favorite blush palette of all time?: Sleek Brush by 3 in Carifronia
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time?: all in one as in eyes-cheek-lip palette? I don’t have a favorite because I really hate it when cream and powder are in a same palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair neutral; auburn hair, hazel/green eyes

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? UD Electric. Not because I use it the most (though I definitely do use it), but because it’s so original. I don’t have or ever see anything else quite like it. I adore all the super-bright colors. For everyday use, probably TF Chocolate Bar or Bare Minerals Convertible palette (this year’s).

Favorite blush palette of all time? I’m hoping for the Tarte Pin-up palette for Christmas, and that that will be it. 🙂 Until then, I adore the Sleek Blush by 3 (any colors, really!) and e.l.f.’s two Studio Blush palettes.

Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? UD Naked on the Run.

If I really need to save on space, e.l.f. 22 Piece On the Go Lip Eye Shadow Travel Palette packs a ton of different stuff into a very small space, and the quality is pretty darn good.

Your skin tone/coloring: light with yellow undertone

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Urban Decay Naked 1 (Original one)

Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? Benefit Cabana Glama

■Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? UD Naked3
■Favorite blush palette of all time? The one I made with Makeup Geek blushes!
■Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? Never owned one

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation in 001.

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow quad (quint since split pan?) in 10 Kozuecha. I love this to pieces and it gets used most days. I hate being without it. It has all the shades I like to use in both shimmer and satin finishes and the quality of the eyeshadows is excellent. It has my favourite eyeshadow of all time, a beautiful, shimmery golden peach. It also comes with a complex, shimmery gold/taupe; a luxuriously smooth-as-butter satin cream and a glimmer-flecked, split-pan brown and dark brown. And yes, it’s has been worth every penny. 😛

Favorite blush palette of all time? It has to be the Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O’ Blushes. Beautiful colours! I don’t have many blush palettes but this is a definite favourite. Although the tin is cute I will eventually put them into a Z Palette so that I can travel with them individually. Being able to remove them from the tin is a bonus!

Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? I’m not a fan of all-in-one palettes but if I had to choose it would be an old (and fairly cumbersome) Clinique travel palette. I bought it at duty free years and years ago but I do go back to it every once in a while because I do actually like the colours. It has a face powder (too dark so I never use it) an eyeshadow quad in Spicy, blush in Mocha Pink and four different lipsticks, all of which are nice and wearable. And no, I don’t travel with it!

Your skin tone/coloring: light warm

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Of ALL time? Ugh, that is so hard to say… I am really loving my Smashbox Cherry Smoke palette at the moment though.

Favorite blush palette of all time? I don’t own any blush palettes, only singles

Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? I don’t have it (yet!) but I looooove Guerlain’s new Petrouchka palette

Your skin tone/coloring: between fair and light with cool undertones and warm features
Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Oh, dear. Very few eyeshadow palettes have every type of shade that I want to do a complete look (matte or satin/matte neutral base, highlighter, mid-tone transition shade, and darker crease/liner shade that are cool or truly neutral, plus colorful or shimmery light and dark lid shades, at a minimum). So maybe my favorite is Z-palette, for making my own! Urban Decay’s Vice 3 does have every type of shade I want (Vice 2 is too dark for me, and I missed Vice 1), but the quality of some of the shades doesn’t seem to be as good as usual; the darker shades fade away from my ‘outer V’ even with a primer. Make Up Forever’s Studio Case does have all I want, just barely, the transition shade is a bit shimmery for me, but I can make it work; and the case is really clunky to use, I’m going to de-pot the shadows into a Z-palette and use the case for storing other things — at least it is a nice case, worth re-using. The palette I have the most fun with is Urban Decay’s Electric palette, it’s a palette of all vivid colors, which I love to play with, it’s not trying to be a palette you would use without other supporting shadows.
Favorite blush palette of all time? Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette because of the high quality and because I can easily do very subtle or more intense looks with it, BUT, I’m disappointed that all the colors read rather warm; if Hourglass would do a similar palette with at least two cool-toned blushes, it would be perfect for me.
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? The only eye + cheek palette that I own (and haven’t taken apart and de-potted) is Tarte’s Be MatteNificent. I did have a Laura Mercier eye and cheek palette that had good colors, but was clunky to use, so I de-potted the shades.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC40 (it’s a smidgen to dark right now)
Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Inglot…I chose all the colors that’s why. I haven’t found a palette that is absolutely perfect where I use all the colors. The closest thing would be my either my Sonia Kashuk Matte Neutrals or Urban Decay Naked.
Favorite blush palette of all time?: Don’t have one…
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time? Don’t have one…

Whoa…this was pretty lame haha I tend to like build your own palette systems like Inglot’s Freedom System or MAC. It’s just easier and it ensures I use every color in the palette. In palette’s like UD’s Nakeds I always end up having 2-4 shadows I don’t like and are therefore unused. Right now I have 2 full, unused shadow pans in my UD Naked2 that I’m probably never gonna use up and I’ll probably end up either throwing away or giving to someone.

Favorite blush palette of all time?: I don’t really do blush palettes, but I’d love the Hourglass one. So expensive.
Favorite all-in-one palette of all time?: Maybe the Urban Decay Face Cases, but I can’t think of much else.
