What kind of eyeshadow palette would you love to see for the holidays?

I’d love to see duos or quads featuring “special” colors – like accent shades, toppers, sparkly shades.

I miss the old style quads from Pat McGrath with special shades only. I wish she came back to that format for the holidays. They were very special imo.

For the sake of convenience (so that I can bring them with me, because sometimes I need to repair my eyeshadow) and because I’m just about chock full when it comes to larger palettes (over 9-pans), I am very interested in quads, quints and even those small ones Huda makes when she gets the quality “right”. So my answer would be: very well curated, more unique color combos like that PML Nocturnal Nirvana and Interstellar Icon quads or ND Mini Gold quint, and I’m currently eyeing the two holiday quints by PML, especially that cool-toned one, and also Chantachaille Black Jaguar Quartet!

Yes, that Interstellar Icon quad was one of Pat’s best and I would have purchased it in a heart beat if I didn’t have good dupes for all the shades…such is my collection.
I would like to see some genuine autumn themed palettes (no pinks, reds, oranges, matte blacks) without any matte shades in them…it could be anything from 4 -9 pans, as long as the quality is really good.

Interesting topic! As someone with a very cool skintone, how I wish there were more ‘wintry’ shades for lighter tones. I have quite a bit of trouble finding a palette where most of the shades wouldn’t go to waste. It seems to me that bronze/russet tones are most popular right now. Granted, those shades are beautiful. What once flattered me doesn’t now. I would love any rec’s for a palette with lighter cool tones. TY!
