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?

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

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

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I almost never use Naked 1 either.  I use Toasted, and the matte brown shade in there.  Other than that I don't really like the other colors in there.  I hate the last two shades which are loaded with glitter.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Adding Vice 1 and Sigma's Paris palette to the list. Nothing wrong with the pigmentation of Vice 1 -- I just don't wear colors too often. Sigma's, however, was downright terrible, colors or not.

Awww man, I had been thinking about buying this Smiley Sad The colors look so pretty.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Marc Jacobs the tease palette. Lovely colors, horrible fall out. Now that I know better I should have saved the money. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Naked2 palette.i just couldnt make it work for me.too much shimmer and taupe just ddnt look grEat on my skintone. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Definitely the Naked 2 for me.  It is the last palette I ever reach for because the colors and looks I can create are just so boring and don't really make my blue eyes stand out much.  I wish I had returned it.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Naked Basics!!  The colors in the middle are too similar and don't show up well on my skintone.  I really only ever use Venus, Faint, and Crave.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

If I could get WOS (Walk of Shame) on its own, I would probably go through it quickly - but I rarely use Foxy. I think there's a shade or two like that in every palette and small palettes make it more obvious/feel like more of a waste.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I can't recall the name - but it was Urban Decay and all the colors looked black when they were on. In the container they looked green, purple, etc. - but on the skin they were really pretty much black. I ended up throwing it away after it gathered dust for a couple years. I don't really love any of my Urban Decay palletts and I have not bought the Nakeds for that reason. Too much glitter and fallout in too many of their other colors. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The Black palette. I own two of this palette and love it.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Yup.  The black palette.  It's the one UD palette I don't love.  Still have mine and am still trying to figure out how to work it to come off not black.  I'm going to figure it out one of these days!

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

Largely agree with y'all. I do love the colors, but there is a very fine line between enough color and way too much with that palette. Often, I would use it when going out to metal shows, and if I got too much on, just tried to balance it and call it heroin chic. In comparison, the Smoked palette is more user friendly. Still, I think of it as a challenge I'd like to master at some point before I'm 60, lol.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I know exactly what you mean you are referring to UD THE BLACK PALETTE.. The colors are nice but once applied they appear to be black.

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

I bought a bunch of Too Faced palettes all at once and regretted every one of them. Chalky, not enough of a range of colors. 

I love my Kat Von D palettes but kind of regret buying Poetica - I have Sinner, Saint, Ludwig, and Ladybird and Poetica is just too warm and the colors it does have that work have better counterparts in the other palettes. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

How do you like the Saint Palette? I was thinking of getting it.I keep going back and forth with that palette at the store.

Is it different enough from Naked1?  Thanks

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

It has fewer mattes than Naked 1, which is sad because I love matte shadow. It's more cool-toned than Naked 1, so if you have a warm complexion, I'd go with Naked 1. Overall, I like it, I just don't reach for it as often as I do others because it's so shimmery. I picked it over Naked 2 because it felt more wearable - I've still debated going back and getting Naked 2 to see which I like better, in reality. 

Re: What eyeshadow palette do you regret purchasing?

The only palette I own that I regret buying is the KVD Poetica palette. The shade I was most excited about (the purple duochrome) is really underwhelming even over a white base, it just looks like a plain lavender. The two dark matte colors I'm not a fan of either, they have this chunky glitter and are a pain to blend. And, the eyeliner that came with the palette smudges terribly on me. I'm trying to make the orange/copper color work for me though, we'll see how that goes.
