What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Usually, I can make a palette work for me, but the Smashbox Heatwave Palette is just not doing the trick for me. The colors are pretty, but they go on really light. Plus the fallout is ridiculous.

 

I bought it a long time ago, so I'm gonna have to MsGyver this bad boy and use some colors with other palettes I have to make it work.

 

I guess I can try it wet, too. I haven't done that yet.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Stila "In the Light" Palette. I absolutely hate it. The colors are pretty in the package, but they are hardly pigmented and have terrible fallout.

Naked I and II - yes odd ball hereSmiley Happy

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Same here. If we have it to long we can't exchange it or anything at all? I so regret the naked 2 I only use the gold colors the black is hard for me to blend and the dark colors and glitter look like a mess on me.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The MAC eyeshadow palette I created when I first got into higher end makeup and MAC was all the hype. Such a waste of money.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Probably going to be the only one saying this but LORAC Pro. Yes pretty colors but just don't last long on my eyes and fall out.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

That's how I feel about this Smashbox palette. So much fallout, it looked like I had put shadow all the way around my eyes. I just gave up and went to work. Today is an eyeshadow fail. Ha!

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

lecia1167, have you tried applying the smash box shadows with your fingers? I have a terrible time with the heatwave palette but when I use my fingers, wow the colors are pretty!

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I have not! I'll try that.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

theBalm's Balm Jovi palette. It is way too pigmented for me and I could never make it work. Ended up selling it to a co-worker for half the price. She's getting more use out if it than I ever could so I'm glad Smiley Happy

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The Urban Decay Book of Shadows 4. I got it when it was first released. I loved it when I first got it but a month afterwards I wished and still wish I hadn't purchased it. The only super used shade is Baked Smiley Sad I probably should have just gotten that individual shadow. I did love the full size 24/7 eyeliner and primer potion and Supercurl mascara minis though. Kinda want my $64 back, just saying. It didn't do anything for me. It's just been sitting in my drawer for a year and a half now :/

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I feel like that can be said for any and all of UD's book of shadows.  I bought a few of them back in the day, I don't remember their names, but I ended up "depotting" them since everyone was doing it on youtube. 

 

Everyone was complaining about the bulk and how they never used them because it was so bulky, so I thought if I depotted mine, I'd get more use out of it.  Needless to say, that didn't happen.  The depotted shadows now live in a Z Palette with a few other random depotted palettes.  I have no idea what any of their names are and I never use any of them, either.  I don't know why, but there's something about the Book of Shadows that's user un-friendly.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I don't really regret any one palette, specifically, but I do regret buying so many -- they never get enough use! I have both Naked palettes and several Guerlain palettes, but I tend to reach for the Burberry singles. I'll have to put some of them back in rotation! Smiley Happy

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The Urban Decay Oz palettes, I NEVER used them so I returned them.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

This is also my regret!  I purchased them straight from Urban Decay and it's been too long so I can't return them.  An upside is that the palettes are reusable, so I was able to swap out the shades I wasn't wearing. Smiley Happy

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The Glinda one was worse than the Theodora one.  I wish I held off on buying it because it's on sale for $24 now, and I think I originally paid $60 for it.  The iridescent 1/2 and 1/2 one from the Glinda palette is the worst, though.  It looks awful on me.  I wanted to like it because it reminded me of this Chanel lip gloss palette I bought in 1998 or something.  I should probably just smash it up and turn it into lipgloss.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Mine too! so pretty but I never used it. Ended up giving the Glinda away to my little sister.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I am also not a fan of the Lorac Pro Palette. The shadows had fallout and felt overly powdery, not buttery as all of the hype suggests.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Lorac Pro, UD Naked 2, and UD Book of Shadows. Keep your eyes peeled, Lorac Pro will most likely end up in one of the Traveling Boxes Smiley Happy I've already given away the other 2. I actually won a 2nd Book of Shadows at a baby shower and gave that one away too lol. Judy from Itsjudytime was throwing my friends shower and she made gift bags for the games with all those free goodies she gets sent).

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Lorac Unzipped. Almost all of the shadows looked the same on me. I returned it. Smiley Sad

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

i regret one of the lancome 5 color shadows. i got it an loved it at first, but then never used it and never find myself using the colors.. i did get a pink/gold combo and just don't find it looks good on me anymore... Smiley Sad

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

MUFE Midnight Glow. The colors looked beautiful and I wanted to like it so badly!! But they were barely pigmented and did not show up on my lids even with a good primer. This baby went back to Sephora.

 

Also, Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons. Love the mascara and primer it came with, but this palette is seriously fallout city!! I still use it sometimes, but it is really annoying to deal with Smiley Sad

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

NAKED 1 by Urban Decay. I fell for the hype, which was a big mistake. I really didn't like the palette at all and returned it. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Naked 1, I have it but never use it, and now it's been too long and I can't return it...

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Aw I love this. It is perfect for me! Smiley Happy
