Most used: Naked Basics. It’s a palette that can get incorporated into every single look and is great to have on hand.

Least used: Naked 1. I bought into the hype and got it and I have tried and tried again to love it, but the colors are just all wrong for me.

If we’re going by dents in the shadow Urban Decay Mariposa, but I haven’t reached for that in a while. Otherwise Urban Decay Naked 2, though none of those shades are showing real trenches yet. I try and force myself to use different colours every day though, so as not to get in a beauty rut or ‘waste’ my eyeshadow.

Urban Decay Naked 2, easily! I even used it to do the makeup for both of my weddings (same dude, two weddings for families on opposite sides of the world :-P)

But then I only own about 3 palettes, so… 😀

I don’t own a great deal of them, but I reach for my Laura Mercier Artist palette very often! Even sometimes just to complete looks made with other eyeshadows.

Ditto! I never thought it would be so versatile on me considering it shouldn’t work on my olive/warmer skin tone as well as it does. I’ve never been able to pull off purples and pinks before and now they’ve become so every day.

My favorite too! The colors seem to work on a variety of skin tones. Love the mix of cool & warm shades. Shimmers have no glitter or fall out. Mattes are like butter– none of the usual powdery mess!

Urban Decay’s Smoked Palette – the mattes for highlighting, blending and darkening. Thinking about getting Naked basics for this…

I thought it was Naked 1, but I remember that the other day I was looking through my palettes – and my most used is actually the Clinique Meadow palette that they don’t even make anymore.

Probably Stila In The Light, one of my favorite palettes. It definitely LOOKS like the most used because there’s a lot of fallout and you can barely tap your brush in the pan and powder will get everywhere! But it’s one of my favorite palettes of all time. Have you tried it, Christine? So lovely! Other than that Nyx’s Love In Rio trio in “Barefoot in the Sand” which is so lovely. EmilyNoel83 mentioned it in a favorite Nyx products video and she described it best – it’s kind of like you’re not wearing any makeup, but you are. It’s like it contours your eyes and brings out the shape. it’s simply AMAZING. The three colors are not the most pigmented, but that’s perfectly fine if the look you’re going for is soft and subtle. So underrated!

Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Beethoven. Galeano and Tequila are my favorite eyeshadows of all time.

My Urban Decay Naked 1 is my most used. However I often combine it with my custom MAC palette of 15 shadows.

NYX Butt Naked “eyes”; the spectrum is broad, there are various finishes, and it is nearly impossible to make a mistake! It’s perfect for mornings when time is especially limited.

Urban Decay 2 is probably my all-time most used, but I like to switch it up to use all my products. I definitely don’t need anymore palettes probably ever!

Is it cheating if I say my custom Inglot 40-palettes? I use custom made palettes and singles a lot more than pre-made palettes. My MAC and/or Inglot palettes are pulled out basically every time I do my makeup.

Out of my pre-made palettes it’s probably the Chanel Spices quad, bareMinerals The Happy Place or theBalm Nude ‘tude.

Over all UD Naked 1 because I’ve had it since it came out, but the second Laura Mercier Artist Palette is definitely in the lead now. I’ve hardly touched my other palettes since I got it.

I try to rotate my palettes as best as I can so they can all get some love. I haven’t been reaching for my Naked 1 as much since I got Naked 2, Naked 3 and the Lorac Pro though 🙁

Naked 2 hands down. I have sooooo many palettes but this one was my first substantial palette purchase. I am also in love w Naked 3, but time will tell if it’s lust or something more lasting…

Urban Decay Naked 2 and Shattered Face Case. And, though it’s technically not a palette, lately I cannot put down Bare Minerals Ready 2.0 in The Inspiration.

The OCD in me has me cycle through all of my palettes and singles equally. It challenges me to come up with a look for a certain product when I have to use that one. If that makes any sense 🙂
