What eyeshadow palette have you used the most in 2018?

Not that the bar is very high here, but I’m pretty sure it’s Pat McGrath’s Decadence, which comes should come as no surprise.

I have been trying to use a different palette a week to use more of my large volume of eyeshadow palettes, but I think Smashbox Cover Shot Ablaze may have seen the most use. I like to combine it with Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat.

I mostly use small pallettes as I do most of my makeup on the train to work and I try not to carry a huge handbag.

ABH Modern Renaissance for most-used throughout the year, both alone and in conjunction with other palettes. Ulta Rose Gold for most consecutive days used (most of late spring/early summer because I needed a no-brainer neutral palette while I was dealing with extremely stressful things). I’m not sure when you add them all up which technically got used more.

Interesting…. probably Bobbi Brown Capri Nudes (I almost just called it Capri Sun lol). Good for a day look or when I need to mix neutrals with a bolder look.

Hmmm, thinking…one palette, only one…not possible, I’m too fickle. I can only say that Natasha Denona & NARS were amongst the top brands for the year.

Since getting it (a few months ago, so haven’t had it all year), it would be the Smashbox Covershot Minimalist palette. Other than that, for palettes I’ve had all year, it’s a toss up between the original UD Naked palette and ABH’s Mario palette.

Stila “In the Light”, but mainly because I decided to “pan” it. I’ve made significant progress on the mattes, and aside from the 2 “champagne” shimmers, I don’t care for the shimmer shades. I did recently depot it, and just put the 6 shades I use together, and now when I look at it, it’s a perfect little “go-to” palette.

Probably Lorac Pro 4 or BM Aurora, overall. Lighter, cooler,, more subtle. Have been trying to switch it up, and remember Vices, MetalMatte, etc, as well as the newerbies, Paradise Fallen, Divinity. It depends on the day, time, etc. usually go all out with color on Sunday, as I have time, and it’s night job.

Urban Decay Naked Heat. I’m trying to use it up as I have all these shades otherwise in singles or other palettes, so trying to clear out what is taking up space.

Hmmm, hard to say (I rotate pretty consistently), but probably ABH Soft Glam!

I’m extremely tempted to pick up a Pat McGrath palette with gift cards I got for Christmas…

Oh my goodness, I don’t know for the which one, tbh! But probably one of the following: UD Born To Run, ND Lila, possibly Viseart Amethyst Theory palette? Possibly ABH Modern Renaissance, though?

The eyeshadow palettes that I have used the most throughout the year are:
Lorac’s Pro Metal (although I have hit pan on my very favourite shade Amber)
bareMinerals Soft and Smokey
bareMinerals The Playlist

Summer Palette: Dior’s Bonne Etoile
Neutrals: Naked 1

Probably UD Electric-I’ve had it for 3 years and it refuses to hit pan on any shade. I have a backup ready for when that eventually happens.

Probably the Lorac Pro Palette 4 and ABH Soft Glam. I did try to mix it up as much as I could and tend to get attached to certain palettes for certain seasons.
