The Midas palette is actually called Unveiled Cool Nudes. I mix it up with the Dose of Colors palette, Pretty Cool, which I could equally add to the above list😉

I would have to say Huda The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette.
While I don’t use it often these days, the colours: soft pinks/peaches/mauves with a couple lighter browns and one bolder berry shade, suit me overall.
Plus the mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics makes it a good all in one.

Two very significant palettes in my stash. I don’t tire of them or ever go too long without using them.

I totally agree those are excellent palettes.. can create any look and all the looks you try even using on 1 shadow are lovely!

Zoeva En Taupe. Always liked it, but now moving away from color. Probably last on the neutral train. Now I have an Adept with ‘cools’ from CP, Lunatick, etc. There’s always something there and it’s handier than other palettes in stash.

UD Born to Run has the copper, orange and brown shimmers that I prefer, plus a few grungier shades when I am in that mood. I love bright greens, which it does not have, and I have similar Viseart shades that are better quality, but if I have to pick one palette, it will be Born to Run.

How can it be just one when I picked out almost all of them? LOL!
Okay, okay, I do have some solid favorites:
CT Bejeweled, ND Glam, PML Decadence and Midnight Sun, UD Urban Spectrum and Vice 3.

I love both smokey, grungy, mysterious eyes and more fun, colorful ones the same depending on my mood and OOTD.

PMG Mothership 1

Cool tones daily wearable with neat pops of shine that are office friendly and can transition to a lovely night look with a touchup

Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde is so me on an every day basis. But my alter personality is Huda Neon Orange. I know the neon palettes got a lot of hate but it’s perfect for summer, I love the various finishes, and the shade range is actually quite wide on my skin tone. I’m a total Gemini.

Ahh.. I find myself always going back to Pat McGrath Sublime and Bronze Ambition… next in line is my Natasha Denona Biba and then Gold palettes… the PMG Sublime palette is so beat up.. and I have panned almost every shade except that fabulous dark glitter green but I have started using it as eyeliner.. wetting with my fix plus… I love this palette so much!

This was a real tough question for me.
I’m going with BPerfect X Stacey Marie Carnival Pro palette. It has every neutral and colorful eye shadow I would need if I only had to pick one for travel.
Also Urban Decay’s Born to Run
Natasha Denona Metropolis
Pat McGraft’s Decadence

Toss up among:
ColourPop Going Coconut
ColourPop Making Mauves or Flutterby
Sydney Grace Enduring Love (Light)
Natasha Denona Glam

MAC’s Natural Vice, which came out last year and I will forever be grateful to Nancy T for convincing me to buy it! I also recently splurged on Colourpop’s Bare Essentials and Stone Cold Fox and love both.

My eye makeup aesthetic — neutral to a fault, obviously.

KVD Saint + Sinner: It has plenty of variety of finishes and colors, and lends itself to original and funky color combinations. It reflects my eclectic tastes pretty accurately — bright, jewel, neutral with a twist, funky colors. The beautiful, gothic packaging is very me.

Huda Beauty Rose Gold

Oh I can’t forget Melt Cosmetics Smoke Sessions, love those vivid greens.

Now this is a tricky and vexing question for all us makeup enthusiasts, but the palette(s) that would best suit my makeup preferences would be:

ND Glam – for the all over neutral/cool toned looks
Maybelline’s Burgundy Bar – neutral/burgundy shades to complement my burgundy tops
PMG’s Sublime Mini + Lapis Luxury – for the gold and blue shaded mix
CT’s The Rebel 2020 + Chanel’s Tisse D’Automne – Autumn olive tones
Dior’s Bonne Etoile – summer tones of teal and mint
Pixi Beauty Reflex Light – for gold and bronze eye looks.

It would have to be the first 2 Naked Palettes (both discontinued) along with Dior Bonne Etoile and New Look, with Chanel’s Tisse Gabrielle tossed in for good measure. The ABH “Mario” palette is another one that pretty much sums up my preferences…I know a lot of people weren’t wild about it but I am so glad I got it.

I tend to by palettes like what you’ve highlighted here, jewel-toned, dark, sultry and pigmented. But of the palettes I have ND Lila (which I hardly ever wear) goes in the direction I like. ND Star and PMG Subliminal palettes would be the next ones.

Hmmm, makes me think I need to take Lila out and use it!
