My Three Favourite Neutral Palettes

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 29 - 2012

Palettes are a busy girl’s best friend.  They require no effort when it comes to colour-matching, you just pull it out and get applying, safe in the knowledge that you’re not gonna look hideously “wrong” afterward.

I thought I’d quickly share my current three favourite neutral palettes.  Well, seeing as I mostly just wear neutrals, they’re probably my three favourite palettes full stop.

1.  Clarins Ombre Minerale 4 Couleurs Eye Quartet in Rosewood – review and swatches here

2.  Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in Velvet Plumtones – review and swatches here

3.  Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Trio Eyeshadows in Silent Treatment – review and swatches here

Told you it was a quick one!  Do you have a current favourite neutral palette or are you more of a singles girl?

    Singles! I get bored easily and like to mix things up, so rarely end up using my palettes! Or I find one colour I adore (a green from Shimmer cubes very first or second airing) use it to death and never, EVER find a decent match *cries*

    Silent Treatment looks so, so nice! I always think the palettes with plum and pink toned colours look best, but they just don’t suit my ridiculously yellow skin haha :) I always use singles, since I have a scary amount of loose eyeshadows.

    I bring the first Naked palette, but I always seem to compliment it with an eyeshadow or two. Maybe because I get bored!

    Sleek Storm is still a good ‘un, and I love my Inglot neutral pallettes but I put them together myself so I would!

    The only palette I have that isn’t a custom Inglot one is UD’s Naked…so I guess that’s my favorite neutral palette! Heh. I prefer loose eyeshadow singles, which is great for me since I usually buy from indie mineral companies.

    I like the Naked palette and my newest purchase, the MUA Heaven and Earth palette. I’m too lazy for singles, I want everything I might want there in my podgy mitts. x

    I don’t have any palettes though I really should get one since I’m not good at picking out eyeshadows to use with singles. Although, I’m no good at applying eyeshadow anyway so I don’t want to invest in any good ones until I get better. Woe is me, eh? x

    Interesting that you include clarins and elizabeth arden because I feel like they’re definitely underrepresented in the online MU community! I don’t think I’ve ever really seen a blog post featuring a product from either brand actually! They look beautiful :)

  12. I love the WnW Silent Treatment palette. But, my all-time favorite is definitely the Naked Palette (predictable, I know!) – I just adore smog, it’s my most-used eyeshadow I own.

    Silent Treatment and The Body Shop’s brown shimmer cubes are my go-to palettes! I think taupe might be my favourite shadow colour.

    Bobbi Brown! I have a classic neutrals palette of hers that I use so much it’s ridiculous. I also have a Pixi palette called Mod, which is very useful too, and a little GWP Elizabeth Arden one that lives in my holiday washbag because it’s just bang on.

    I use wet n wild’s The glided age nearly every day. It’s my to go neutral palette. I think it flatters my warm yellow skin tone very well. And the powder is very fine which I love. :) if only it’s not limited edition, I would love to buy a backup!
