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*

  2. Lily says:

    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.

  3. Joana says:

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

  4. Robyn says:

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

  5. Jaweria says:

    i have been looking for wet n wilds palettes in Pakistan , but sadly they are not available here at the moment ..

  6. JMTolman says:

    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.

  7. Leah says:

    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

  8. Annalise says:

    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

  9. Jennifae says:

    My favorite neutral palettes are UD Naked 1 & 2 and theBalm Nude ‘tude.

  10. liloo says:

    Oh my god. I forgot how pretty the ‘Elizabeth Arden – Velvet Plumtones Palette’ was. The first brown from the quad: woaaaaah!!
    i need ideas for matte or semi matte daytime/neutral quad/trio palettes :'(

  11. Victoria says:

    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.

  13. Audrey says:

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

  14. Wordbird says:

    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.

  15. Nargis says:

    My best loved neutral palette is I’m Getting Sunburned, from your giveaway 😀 Its very shimmmery, but I am a shimmer fiend and I love the quality of the shadows. They never crease!

  16. I’ve awarded you the versatile blogger award!! I’ve only just started reading the blog but looking forward to keeping up with your gorgeous posts.

    I really need to get my hands on some Wet ‘n Wild soon. I keep eyeing them up and drooling over the pigmentation! This one looks great for travel as well being so compact!

  18. Dana says:

    TheBalm Nude’tude pallet is my fave. It’s got a good mix of shades and textures, as well as 2 liner shades :)

  19. Vanessa says:

    LOL, I like how you went from Super Prestige, Prestige and Drugstore. Great variation and great palettes too! I’m quite a neutral girl lover myself!!

  20. Luisa says:

    I bought the Clarins Rosewood palette for my SIL last year. I SO wanted to keep it :-(

  21. SD says:

    I have the WnW one and i love it!

  22. AhCapp says:

    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!

  23. Renji says:

    Where do we get wet n wild shadow palettes in UK…Any online sites for that

  24. Wet and Wild is my favourite too.
