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

  6. baby in a corner says:

    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.

  11. Wordbird says:

    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 ;).
