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?

Great idea! 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Probably a palette I got from UD. It is like a smaller version of the Smoked palette. The green, purple, and blue colours come out virtually black. The bottom 3 are nice though.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I think you're talking about the Dangerous palette. I bought it because it was half price but I hate it too! It's way too dark for my skintone

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Yeah I think so hah. I bought it for the same reason.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I got a MAC holiday palette a couple years ago. Its pretty (the packaging is a snowglobe!) but I never ever reach for it Smiley Sad

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

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

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

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

 

 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

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

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

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 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Stila In the Garden palette...The colors are SO pretty in the pan, but just don't work on my skintone. Wish I would've saved my money.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The Tarte Holiday Palette. It's colors are very pretty but they are chalky, maybe this is due to the clay they use to formulate it, not really sure. I have tried to love it, but honestly i think it is getting sanitized and put in  a TSB. I loved everything else that came in the set, just not a huge fan of their shadows. I have tried it wet/dry everything in between and for me its just not great but the colors are pretty to look at! 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

UD Glinda Palette. Colors are pretty but have so much trouble using them together to make a cohesive look. It's not a one palette look which I don't like. Giving it to my mom as she's a bigger UD junkie than me but only has the other witch palette.

 

UD Ammo Palette. I got the new reformulated one. I got it around this time last year when I started getting really into make up. My mom and best friend had it before (old formula) and it looked so cool. I much prefer my other palettes by UD and I like more colored shadows from bareMinerals (ready formula).

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

UD Basics palette- I like foxy, but it's in another palette. I recently depoted all the naked palettes into a z-palette, so hopefully I'll use it more. I like matte, but don't do a whole look with matte. 

 

Ariel Palette- Thanks to BT I fell into the Disney craze & ordered it as soon as it became available. I haven't even used it yet in case I decide to give to my cousin or someone. From swatches, the shades don't look all that amazing. I have a bunch of mac pro pans I have in a palette with all sorts of shades. I heard the quality of the Disney shadows aren't all that great. So I really don't know why I got it. 

 

UD Vice (the first one)- I love it, I love the colors, and quality. Some have a bit of fall out, but it's still easy to work with. The shades themselves don't all work well together. I just don't use it enough to really play & figure out what works. It's not that I don't like it, but I reach fro my mac colors or naked palettes more to really get used to it. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I agree my Smashbox Heatwave is my regretted purchase! I hate the thing.  The colors don't seem like the go together well cause they all just look the same and very blah.  Also there is a bit too much fall out. I think I've used it twice. Just not feeling it.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Rin418, I dislike some of the colors but love the gold shadow so much. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Yes, I agree the gold color is nice. I sometimes use it with my other palettes  to create a look if I'm looking for a hint of gold. Thats as far as ill go with it tho.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The Lorac Mint Palette.


The colors just *don't* work for me! I've tried so hard to love it, but I guess Lorac and I just weren't meant to be! I feel like the shadows just don't "blend" properly? Maybe I've been spoiled with too much UD. If anyone is interested in swapping or taking this baby off my hands, it's up for grabs. I second @roxystar's idea of starting a palette swap thread! 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Marydiva, I bought the Lorac mint for the mint green colored shadow & it doesn't work for me ( too light) ...But I like the blush and two of the other shadows so I don't hate it. It's not my fave though ( wtheck auto correct! Sorry about botching ur user name)

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I know! I bought it for the mint shadow as well. The blush/highlighter doesn't work for me. I gave the palette to my little sister, but nothing works for her, so we passed it on to our OTHER little sister and she dislikes it as well. It's only been used about 6-9 times in an attempt to make it work, so if anyone is interested in it, they can go for it!
