This or That: The Eyeshadow Palette Edition

  • All matte or all shimmer?
  • Practical colors or fun colors?
  • Creams or powders?
  • Do you use the brush that comes with the palette, or do you ditch it?
  • 7 or fewer shades, or more than 7 shades?
  • With a mirror or without?
  • Magnetic closure or snap?
  • Black or white packaging?
  • Build your own or buy premade?
  • It’s time to refresh your makeup bag! Do you re-purchase a palette you know and love, or buy a new palette from a brand you haven’t tried before that looks exciting?

All matte or all shimmer?

All matte, no doubt!

Practical colors or fun colors?

Girl, when did I get so #basic? Gimme those practical colors. (SIGH) At least I know I’ll wear them. 🤷‍♀️

Creams or powders?

Powders that feel like creams! 😁

Do you use the brush that comes with the palette, or do you ditch it?

I’ll keep it around but only use it out of sheer desperation… I’m crazy picky about my brushes.

7 or fewer shades, or more than 7 shades?

10 is the sweet spot for me!

With a mirror or without?

With a mirror, because you just never know.

Magnetic closure or snap?

Magnetic closure! They eliminate having to pay any attention at all when you open and close, and I’m all for that. Also, it’s not like I’m hitting the open road right now, so I’m not worried about things jostling around and unexpectedly opening in my makeup bag.

Black or white packaging?

I like the look of white packaging (plus, it’s easier to find white products in my bag for some reason), but black is generally easier to keep clean. So…black.

Build your own or buy premade?

Build your own!

It’s time to refresh your makeup bag! Do you re-purchase a palette you know and love, or buy a new palette from a brand you haven’t tried before that looks exciting?

A new palette to play with would be fun, so let’s do that!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
