The One Palette Challenge

Palette Challenge Photo_Katie and Brenda holding eye palettes showing swatches.jpg

 

Who convinces themselves they need every palette out there… Especially when it’s versatile and can be used for both neutral and va-va-VOOM glamazon looks? *raises hand*

 

Who also has a tendency of buying a new palette, consistently using it for two weeks, and getting distracted by another product, abandoning their new friend OR just gets lazy with their eyeshadow game? *aggressively waves both hands in the air* *starts jumping up and down while waving*

 

If you can identify with any of the above, we have a challenge for you! We challenge you to dig into your beauty stash and pick out one palette that is extremely versatile. The goal is to use it daily or simply on the days your wear makeup… Up to you and your lifestyle! What we want to see are the different types of looks you can create or descriptions of the looks if you’re short on time or cannot find the right lighting. (A recurring dilemma in my life!)

 

The looks can be simple or intricate, how you play is up to you! Be sure to leave a comment to share the palette you’re focusing on. As far as updates, please track your progress throughout the week as many times are you're able to. We will try to devote ourselves to one palette for one and, if we aren’t having commitment issues, we can keep the challenge going!

 

I am going to be using my new obsession, the PAT MCGRATH LABS - Eye Ecstasy™ Eyeshadow & Mascara Kit. The six-pan palette in this kit offers everyday neutral shades, a range of light and dark shimmers, and the kit comes with a gorgeous crystalline pigment for a pop of glam. @BrendaBT will use the beautiful NATASHA DENONA - Biba All Neutral Eyeshadow Palette, @LexBT will be using CHARLOTTE TILBURY - The Icon Eyeshadow Palette, and @RebeccaBT will be trying the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Metallic Pigment Palette.

 

 

Will you join us on this challenge? Which palette will you pick?!

 

 

P.S. If you end up hitting pan on your palette don't forget to share your progress on the ever-popular Pan It! Challenge lead by the lovely @ElleElleG here: https://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confidential/Pan-It-2019-Challenge/m-p/4347876

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Thank you, @cianni ! I did try to match my eyeshadow to my shirt haha. I have many cover shot palettes and I have yet to try one that disappoints. They're pigmented and compact ❤️

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Seeing as I bought 2 palettes on sale this week, I thought I'd try this challenge out to inspire me to use the ones I have in new ways! I'm starting off with my new NATASHA DENONA - Mini Lila Eyeshadow PaletteI received it yesterday and feel confident I'll be able to create a whole week of looks with it! 

 

Today I eased into it with Flint as my transition and all over the lid, raisin in the crease and outer corner, and packed on Linen in the inner corner and first third of my eye. A little subtle given how beautiful Blue dahlia and Poison Berry are, but I wanted to keep it relatively subtle for work.

 

Ignore the disgusting liner. I was trying to squeeze the last of my KVD tattoo liner, but its just so horrible and dry now that it ended up making a huge mess. I definitely wont be purchasing this again!20190530_104452.jpg

 

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@cianni  such a pretty look 

Re: The One Palette Challenge

thank you!! @ather 

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Yay!  You have joined the thread...this is my favorite thread, I love all the palettes everyone is using.  It's a palette parade palooza!

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Yessss @danielledanielle !! I'm forever searching for new ways to use palettes I have so this whole thread is giving me so much inspo 😍 I normally do the same two looks with every palette I own 😂

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@cianni Gorgeous! I love that palette! 

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Thank you @RebeccaBT ❤❤ it's so much fun to play with and soooooo adorably sized LOL

Re: The One Palette Challenge

I just got this palette in the mail too, @cianni !! Your eyeshadow looks great! I feel you on the KVD liner. I switched to Stila and it dries out on me way less fast. I used to have to use a different eyeliner on each eye bc they'd dry out so fast during use 😣

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@SpaceLlama was the KVD always like this? I remember it was everyone's number one choice a while ago, but I was (unfortunately) still in my "smudge kohl pencil even the top lid" phase (yikes) so I only started using it relatively recently. You're gonna love the palette! After I got my hands on the PMG I was debating returning this one but looks like both are staying 😂

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Eek! Ordered two of the PMG palettes too 🙈 there's a 3rd in my cart if it'll get back in stock. Haha. The good deals are getting to me. I used to love the liner a lot. I bought it several times and used many mini samples. In my experience, I had better luck with the minis. I don't know why. It was always pretty hit or miss and I just got tired of fighting with my liner drying out, @cianni . 

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@SpaceLlama which ones did you get!!! How satisfying was it when it was in stock long enough to actually checkout 😂 also I have a BOBBI BROWN - Long-Wear Gel EyelinerThat I literally bought the TARTE - Etch and Sketch Bamboo Brush to use with it and have been so scared to try it because I'm afraid to make a mess LOL I guess now is the time haha

Re: The One Palette Challenge

I got Bronze Ambition and La Vie en Rose, @cianni ! They look so pretty! They'll be my first PMG palettes and they're already arriving tomorrow. So excited! I'm still waiting on Bronze Temptation. 

I'm guilty of also buying gel liners and staying away from them because of the learning curve. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it with a little practice! 

 

Also, just out of curiosity, which palette did you get from PMG? Smiley Happy

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@SpaceLlama oh nice!! I also got la vie en rose arriving tomorrow and its my first PMG palette 😍 I have the mini matte trance lipsticks (which I also had to incessantly refresh to catch in stock LOL). The la vie en rose was the only one I could semi justify by telling myself they're shades I dont already have hahaha

it looks great @cianni

it looks great @cianni

Re: it looks great @cianni

Thank you @lmaster ❤❤❤ I think I'm gonna try ABH sultry next. You had so many beautiful looks I wanna recreate! As if you've ever come through with a look that wasn't absolutely flawless 😍

Re: it looks great @cianni

@cianni sultry will look amazing on you,,I know it 😉

Re: The One Palette Challenge

Took a little break, but I’m back with another Born to Run look. I wish the green had a little more oomph, but then again I didn’t try particularly hard to build it up. Riff, Wanderlust, Smog.

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@tastelikewater  Beautiful look!

Re: The One Palette Challenge

@tastelikewater ,

Beautiful eye look!

Re: The One Palette Challenge

I feel you on building up green shades to be super pigmented, @tastelikewater . I usually have to use setting spray, a dense brush and a lot of patience, especially for dark emerald metallics. Your eyeshadow looks amazing though! Born to run seems like a great palette Smiley Happy
