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?

  • Naked 1 
    - The colors looked realli nice, pretty and useful in the palette, but on the eyes, they were all just metallic-ey glitters that almost didn't show their colors. 
  • MAC 
    - everyone said Mac had great eye shadows it seemed, so I went and bough a quad palette with Rice paper, Shroom, Honey lust and espresso. 
    - they look so ever different from when I saw them in stores. the lighting at MAC is so deceiving. Rice paper is very ugly and the color payoff isn't that great either. goes on uneven too. 
    - they also don't blend very easily, goes on sheer and just doesn't pop the eyes

Oh man, Shroom is my fave inner corner highlight!

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Ive never had a prob with MAC lighting or issues with their shadows. I have all of those colors and use them on a regular basis.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I'm not much of a MAC fan, but I have heard that MAC eye palettes are awful and completely different from the single shadows (and the single shadows are much better)

Ah! Maybe this is where the mishap happened! I have a pro palette and just get a refillable one! 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

this is exactly the case!  The brush sets they sell at the holidays are also not near as good as the individual brushes

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Lorac unzipped... its okay, but the shimmery shades (especially the darker ones) give me so much fallout that I have to redo my foundation sometimes. The lightest highlight color is the only color I'd rebuy... It's awesome. But for the price I wish I went with something else. The colors all blend into eachother, too, to the point where it's basically impossible to tell the difference between them. It sucks because I heard so many good things about it.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I had the same problem with Unzipped. When I put it on, it looks like it is just one color :/

I just recently bought it last F&F sale and still thinking if I should keep it or not.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Lorac Pro (I NEVER wear it) and UD Theodora (returned). I also regret getting lots of MAC singles in colors, since I only wear neutrals (and I LOVE my MAC neutrals). Ended up swapping them all away.

Smashbox Wonder Vision in Sparks.  The colors do not look good on me at all.  It's going back---today!
