Do you prefer palettes or single shadows?

Sunday, December 19, 2010

Personally I'm torn.. I love the idea of palettes. Everything in one concrete area! Eg. Daytime..Nighttime. But what I hate is that I never use them...unless I'm going on vacation or to a shoot.

I find myself using more single shadows because its easier to pin point what I want. Eg. MAC swiss chocolate & NYX red bean pie is an amazing combo, so I lug those around with me in my makeup bag.

So my question for you is palettes or single shadows?

  1. Single shadows, even if I'm traveling - my preference is more or less the appeal of sifting through so many shadows, that clinking of jars is too attractive to me.

  2. I like palettes-I can't commit to a single color!

  3. I like palettes but they can be so big and hard to take with you! Plus, if you find a shade you love in a palette they are often ONLY in that palette and you will never find them again! I'm torn as well because they are often a better deal & you can try shades you may not if you were buying singles. I think I'll just keep both! ;)

  4. i dont like pre-formed palettes, especially the ones mac makes. i like to purchase individual shadows and fill up a palette.

  5. Like you I like the idea of palettes and I buy them (the pre-made ones) but I never use them unless I'm traveling or there is a specific color I'd like to use inside the palette. Now I do use the palettes I create myself from my single shadows, can't live without those.

  7. I buy both basically because whatever color I don't have in the palette I buy separately.

  9. I prefer palettes- especially Sleek's Storm and Urban Decay's Naked palettes. It's easy to come up with a look from one of those so I tend to just reach for one of them each morning.

  10. I love palettes because they are neat and organized. I just focus on the main colours that I need for a makeup look that I want to do. Although, I do have a few single eye shadows, that I would like to depot soon.

  11. I like butchering single shadows to make palettes! I tend to wear neutrals everyday, so I stick them all in one palette and just bring that without having to worry about losing my singles.

  12. I like palettes because I'm lazy and all the colors I need are already in a palette. xD But I also keep single eyeshadows of colors I really like.

  15. Palettes for me - easier to find colors and more affordable!

  16. I prefer single shadows because my problem with palettes is that unless it's some particularly miraculous set, I'm not going to use it all, which is a waste. :/

  18. I buy small palettes for taking along in the purse but I usually buy singles and de-pot them into a custom palette.
