let's talk palettes here.

i really want the mac pro lip palette in brown, plum and red but i can't justify it because i've got too many lipsticks to use up before i dive in. i don't have a good brown lipstick now but i have enough items for a recycle freebie.

in other news, i bought a cool palette from ulta. it's $12.99 but i had a coupon so it was less than $10. i tried the colors on the back of my hand and they are nice. of course the brush is worthless but this would be a nice gift for the makeup lover in your life.

what are your favorite palettes? pics please! price too!

I want this so bad.

Urban Decay The Vice Palette: Shop Eye Sets & Palettes | Sephora

I think my mutti might of bought it for me for christmas during UD's online sale. I think. I hope.


Because I told her to buy me some eye shadow that was in their clearance and she sent the stuff to her house, so maybe it was because she bought it and wanted to hide it??



that is NICE. i know the colors pop. pretty. even the brush looks decent. hope you got it!

I rarely wear bright make up, but I love Sugarpill's Burning Heart Palette ($34). That yellow makes my heart sing. Ever since Beyonce's yellow cat eye in that stupidly long video with Lady Gaga and the Countdown video I've fallen head over heels for that look. But...I have to accept that if I do buy it, I would just be staring at the pretty packaging because I have no where to wear it

NYX's Eyeshadow Trios ($7) don't get nearly enough love. I have Cherry/Cool Blue/Hot Pink and I think they're more pigmented than the Urban Decay shadows I own. Cherry, more magenta really, is amazingly velvety and goes on with no effort. Cool blue and hot pink don't really work for me (they both look ashy on me, they're too cool toned) but I can't part with it (despite the fact I know someone who would get some serious play out of it) because of Cherry!

alice those sugarpill colors are beautiful!! if you only like the yellow mac has one very similar. i took a pic of the one in my personal palette although i don't think it's showing up as bright as it is but it's actually really wearable with a tone of other colors and it doesn't crease much. i forgot the name though but it's the only bright yellow they have. it's been a few years so it's possible they don't have it though. i also included a larger pic of all the colors in one of my personal palettes, y'all can see what gets the most use. i have another that has different color families in it.

Throwing out names for that MAC shade:

Goldmine? Goldenrod? Chrome Yellow? Flavor Added (not as gold as it appears in the pan)?

^^^ Chrome Yellow...that's it!!!

Goldmine is the color underneath

I love Chrome Yellow. I also like Eldorado from UD as well, but it has a LOT of glitter whereas Chrome Yellow is matte.

Also, Yellow Funk and Mellow Yellow by NYX are worth a look for an occasional pop of yellow.

(sorry - that was OT - back to palettes!)
I was so happy to snag a NYX Serengeti palette before they were all gone. I wonder why they discontinued it. I had such a feeling about this palette that I stalked it to death, so hard that my DH found me one on e-bay (I never think to do that - guess he got tired of me going on about it)



I can't say I have any favorites - I love all my palettes (OK, maybe not all equally) but I like that sometimes palettes give me a chance to try out colors I would not necessarily think to seek out on my own.
