What you want… what you really, really want…

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 24 - 2010

C’mon, tell me!

Here’s (a virtual) £60.

The catch is, you can only buy one thing with it and it’s got to be a palette.

And NO(!) it’s not allowed to be the new Urban Decay Naked palette or we’d all just say that one (mostly!)

Here’s my pick:

The LORAC Private Affair palette ($38)

Look at those beautiful cool tones!  I’m not saying that I’m wishing Autumn/Winter upon us… but if I had this palette, it would make the inevitable seasonal shift much easier to bear!

Anyone else fancy a bit of virtual Sephora Sweep – link me up!

    But I really really want the Naked palette….! Though this one looks nice too x

  2. Rhamnousia says:

    Oooh that is nice.

    I haven’t done any palette research for a while but if we are going on “anything with the £60″ then Illamasqua blushes FTW.

  3. Amy says:

    I am eagerly anticipating the Bobbi Brown Denim and Rose pallet. Because it’s made of actual denim, and also it looks really pretty.


  4. Duvessa says:

    Honestly I’d go with Inglot custome palettes but if I’d have to choose ready-made palette then I’d get Dior’s Haute Couture eyeshadow palette.

  5. nat says:

    I would probably buy the too faced fun in the dark palette and the natural smoke one from sephora.

    • Naty says:

      whoops didn’t read that it was one thing only 😛 I’d probably buy the Bare Minerals Get Started Kit

      • Naty says:

        oops forgot that it’s only palettes. *making fool of herself* probably the too faced fun in the dark thing even though it’s not exactly 60 pounds haha

    Edward Bess Brown trio (can’t remember the name!) or make up my own mac one with atlantic blue, satin taupe, juxt and stars n rockets!

  7. Wendy says:

    I’d choose Guerlain’s Champs Elysees palette :)

  8. I think I’d have to choose the Guerlain palette for Fall in either Francs or Vendome, both are so stunningly beautiful!

  9. Bunbun says:

    Ahhh that Lorac pallete is calling to me. Ever since I picked up 3 mono shadows from Hautelook awhile back I’ve been meaning to get more! Their shadows are sooooo fantastic!

  10. Anitacska says:

    Is the UD Naked palette out in the UK yet? I’m more interested in the Vegan palette, but would also check the Naked palette out if I saw it.

    Oh man, do I have a nasty virtual shopping habit! But it’s OK because it’s cheeeeeeeeap. Cheaper than chips. I go online, fill my basket with goodies until it’s groaning and then…
    leave. Without paying. OK, so I don’t get the stuff, but on the other hand, I get the thrill without the bill. (It’s sad, isn’t it?)
    I do it at Boden too.

  12. I posted about my new love yesterday. I’d buy Le Metier de Beaute’s Kaleidoscope in Violaceous Splendour (£55 from Liberty) without hesitation. The £5 would be eaten up with postage from Liberty or go towards my train fare ;).
