Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

It’s a toss-up between the original Naked palette and Anastasia’s Mario palette, with the Mario one probably being the one I’d choose (and I’d have to throw in Chanel’s Empreinte du Desert, though it’s a quad, so much smaller than a real “palette”). Honourable mention would also go to Stila’s In the Garden and MAC’s Posh Pedigree (though it is also only 4 shadows).

The only two palettes I think I use enough that I could see myself replacing, not necessarily getting a backup are the Shroud Cosmetics Creepy Cute palette(the black and gray shades get a lot of use as do the pink and the peach) and the Colourpop Thats Taupe palette.

I’m still upset with myself for not buying 2 when Viseart’s Liaison launched but I didn’t know it was limited edition. It’s the perfect cool toned purple color story that also includes a few neutrals and it was the first 9 pan palette that had the updated, more intense metallic formula. I’ve used it sparingly until recently but makeup expires and after 4+ yrs, I need to use it up.

Natasha Denona Sunrise. There is something about that palette and the color story that I have such a visceral reaction to and I have talked myself out of getting a backup of it numerous times over.

On a more realistic level, I have actually purchased Colourpop’s Going Coconuts palette at least four times now – I’ve panned it twice and keep one for home and one at work. It’s just a nice sized workhorse neutral palette for me.

I have bought a back up of Lorac’s Pro Metals because, apart from the black and cobalt blue shades, I had completely used up every other one.
And I am on a mission to use up my Naked 1 palette too – and I think UD did the makeup world a disfavour by d/c that palette…..
As for limited edtion palettes – MUFE Nudes You Need and Chanel’s Empreinte du Desert (which was never, ever heard of in Aus) would also be welcome additions to my stash….

I so agree about the original Naked palette (and #2 and Smokey – to my mind, the 3 best of all the “Nakeds”). The original Naked palette really changed the makeup world and spawned a lot of similar type palettes (because it’s what people wanted and it was practical and usable). It’s a real shame it was discontinued. There really nothing to say about Empreinte du Desert except that I wish you’d been able to get your hands on it!!!
