Aw man, memories.  I believe mine was the UD Naked palette as well!  I still have it (shhh don't tell anyone) even though I barely use it anymore.  I just don't have the heart to get rid of it.  I remember that True Blood palette vividly @sonnydee It was too expensive for me so I picked up the lip crayon that's still rattling around in a drawer somewhere!

I still have mine & it's back upπŸ™„. And the one that i bo...

I still have mine & it's back upπŸ™„. And the one that i bought since they were retiring it..😏@michelleshops I wont tell! i also bought a back up or 2 😏of naked smoky. i LOVE that one!

the rainforest after dark palette was my first high end eyeshadow palette - also my first sephora purchase.
my most expensive palette is definitely the instant look in a palette in natural beauty from charlotte tilbury

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

@Kaylabr  My first high end palette was also the Rainforest After Dark palette, and it was definitely one of my absolute favourites for WAYYY longer than I probably should have kept it for! I always took it travelling with me too. 

 

I honestly think it's the best palette I've ever owned for travelling. I never felt like I was missing anything 

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

@Llgc hahaaaa same - i definitely had mine for way too long. i ended up buying another when it came back in the sale section and had that for longer than i should have too. it has most of everything you need and all the colors were absolutely perfect for me. not to mention the packaging was gorgeous and convenient

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

@Llgc I used to have this too! I used to do my makeup in the bathroom at work or on the bus all the time with this one. I passed it on to my aunt once my collection got bigger but it was definitely a good one. I think I've had 3 or 4 of these Tarte circle palettes over the years, just because they were so convenient.

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

@makeitup305 yes! i had this and the showstopper one. they were both great for traveling and starting off my make-up collection. i wish they still made these tbh

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

@Kaylabr  That’s a beautiful palette inside and out!

@Kaylabr that snake on the tarte palette really tempted me in getting it but I was strong! I actually dont own any of the rainforest palettes surprisingly πŸ€”. love me some CT though!😍😍😍

Re: @Kaylabr that snake on the tarte palette really tempted m...

@sonnydee i'm pretty sure that's what drew me in as well. i remember hearing about tarte through some youtubers i watched at the time, so that was one of the first brands i looked into when i shopped at sephora online. when i saw that i was sold between the packaging and the color story. agreed! i have a few ct palettes and they are so easy to use and the colors are gorgeous.

Re: @Kaylabr that snake on the tarte palette really tempted m...

@sonnydee @Kaylabr Yesss same! The snake tempted me too lol! I still remember vividly wanting it, but happened to miss it

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

I think it might have been a Too Faced one, I can't remember what it was called for sure, but it was in tin packaging with macarons all over. I really didn't like it, the shadows were barely pigmented and didn't blend really well for me.

@elise222 this one?

@elise222 this one?

Re: @elise222 this one?

Yeah, that was it! Looking back at it now, I have no clue why I bought it (it may have been on sale?). But those colours just aren't what I'm typically drawn to.

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

I had to think a lot about this. I’m pretty sure my first non-drugstore eyeshadow palette wasn’t a premade palette. It was most likely my old MAC Pro empty palette that I customized with single MAC shadows. I think the current version of that palette has optional inserts. I remember pulling the inserts out of my old one. Smiley Very Happy That palette had a sad accident: it was broken during a move to a new home. But we had a good run. RIP, old friend. 

 

My most expensive eyeshadow palettes, in terms of palette price, are my Viseart 12-pans. But in terms of price per gram, my most expensive palette is actually Natasha Denona Mini Lila. Smiley Very Happy I have to use the full $25 USD price since I didn’t get it on sale; at that price, it’s $6.25 USD per gram! That’s nearly double Viseart’s $/g. Honestly, the Viseart 12-pans are an even better deal than ABH palettes, so I don’t regret buying them at all. 

@WinglessOne thank you for sharing with us you dear, old...

@WinglessOne thank you for sharing with us you dear, old mac palette memory. 🌹I think people, myself included, just see the $25 price tag & think "oh that's not bad, " add to cart. but excellent point!

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

I don’t have it anymore, but I think it would have to be Urban Decay Book of Shadows III.

@Squirrelish I was late to the game for all the BOS. did you pan it ? ot just destash it?

Re: @Squirrelish I was late to the game for all the BOS. did...

A little of both Smiley Tongue I ended up "unboxing" it (there was a trend with Z-Palettes! RIP gorgeous packaging) and then panned the shadows I used - there was a super sparkly purple that got destashed.

 

The big downside of the BOS was the super large packaging. Cute for the first bit...and then cumbersome. 

Re: A curious mind wants to know! What was you first high end eyeshadow palette purchase?

I think my first was a Kat von D palette...not the newer ones, the really older 8-pan ones (or 12-pan).  I remember I got the one with the dark sparkly black and one with a cream gold shadow.

 

Soon after came UD Naked 2.  As far as most expensive, I guess that would be PMG 6-pan, La Vie en Rose.

@danielledanielle I have a couple of those! and excellent choice of pat! her palettes have been like a bag of chips for me though..πŸ€‘
