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.

ry22, this is really pretty! how's the quality of the shadows?

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I don't like the white one (it's just a bunch of glitter) but the other ones are nice

That is so pretty though Smiley Surprised !

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I love this palette! I picked it up from the CCO earlier this year and now I use it on the regular.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I read this earlier and posted the palette I didn't like was Lorac Unzipped, as almost all the colors looked the same on me.

 

I noticed a lot of people posting about fallout on the Lorac Pro palette, which I thought was strange as I have had it a while and hadn't noticed that. Then today I went to use it and....fallout! However, I was using a newer brush set that picks up a lot of product, my previous brushes didn't do the same thing. I will go back to them when I use Lorac Pro. I found that discovery quite fascinating, thought maybe mentioning it might help some people use this really nice palette more easily. Smiley Happy

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Which brush set works best for you with the Lorac Pro? And which one is the one that picked up too much product?

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I have an older Smashbox brush set, I would call it mildly stiff and medium softness. Dense bristles.  It's actually an ok set but I started really getting into blending and I didn't feel that the brushes let me do that well, so I started researching other brushes and trying a few.

 

The ones that have the fallout (but work great for Stila or UD shadows) are a little Sonia Kashuk set I got, super soft bristles, smaller brush head, not stiff, it loads up with product very well. 

 

So, not an expert or anything but maybe the Lorac shadows are rather soft? They have tremendous staying power once on, and Pewter and Garnet are two of my favorite shadows. No biggie, I'll just go back to using the Smashbox brushes. Smiley Happy

Used the Smashbox brushes this morning, it's definitely what it was.  Smiley Happy

Coastal scents. It was chalky and i had to literarily scrape it to get some color. HORRIBLE. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

ditto coastal scents. HATE that brand. Don't know why there are any good reviews out there
