The Perfect Palette Tag

Booboo Ninja tagged me! Yeah, even readers can tag me, not just bloggers. LOL! I thought it would be fun to do this too. I mean, we’re talking about palettes, yo. This tag has been going around YouTube, and I think this is still do-able even though I don’t do videos. Yet. For this tag, I have to choose a palette for different situations and they are:

1. Best Packaging
2. Best Color Payoff
3. Most Versatile
4. Best for Traveling
5. Biggest Regret
6. Best Color Names
7. Least Used
8. Most Used
9. Most Loved
10. Desert Island

Thing is, I have quite a few palettes, and for those I find I don’t use much of, I give them away to friends and family. Also, I depot a lot of things to make my personal palettes. That is why you will see some custom palettes here. Hey, no rules about palettes being bought from a specific brand eh? I’ll try to make it short since there are 10 to go through. Typing is VERY different from talking, my friends.


1. Best Packaging


Liu 2 Liu 7


I don’t know why, but this is the only palette I’ve gone crazy over. It’s last year’s Guerlain Liu Lip and Eye Calligraphy Palette. The packaging is sleek and it just looks gorgeous inside, with great quality products. This year’s looks similar, but it doesn’t make my heart skip a beat, or skip at all. Weird.


2. Best Color Payoff & 6. Best Color Names




Hands down the LORAC Pro Eye Palette. The pigmentation is awesome! Also, the heck with giving the shades a name. Just call it what it is.


3. Most Versatile andΒ 4. Best for Traveling


unii palette


Why, that’ll be my customized palette of course. Of all my Unii and Zpalettes, this one is the most balanced with eye shadows, a blush and a bronzer. In this Unii palette, you get a NARS Laguna bronzer, Bobbi Brown Coral blush and Urban Decay Naked1 palette. Full of awesomeness! Versatile and travel friendly.


5. Biggest Regret & 7. Least Used




It is not a real ‘palette’ per se, but I do regret collecting the MAC eye shadows that I hardly use. I wanted to create my own palette with all these singles, because I suck at self perseverance and I’m easily swayed, watching too much YouTube videos. It’s added to the blog sale pile, so if you want to take some home, feel free to take a look.


8. Most Used




At the moment, it’s this Chanel Charming palette, but it can change any time. If you ask me 2 weeks later, I’ll give you another answer! I wish this Charming palette still looks as pristine. At the moment, it’s looking a little beat up, but oh well. That’s what makeup is for, right? Still, I prefer to show you Charming in its virgin state. LOL!


9. Most Loved


Lunasol Blushes


I thought I would choose yet another eye palette, but in all honesty, I love my Lunasol blush palette the most. There is a light coral blush, a warm rosy red blush, a sheer bronzer and a highlighter in this palette. The shades are personally chosen by me πŸ™‚ I’ve been using this quite a lot, but it still looks brand new! This photo is taken while it was new, of course. An old photo. Heh! All in the name of convenience πŸ˜›


10. Desert Island

None. Why? Seriously dudes? You worry about the perfect palette when you’re stuck on a desert island? Geez!


OK. I tag the usual suspects and anyone who wants to do this. The names that pop up are Tracy, Larie, Liz, because I know they’ll join in the fun, and I feel weird calling other names just in case they might feel burdened to do this. If you don’t blog, I tag you too, so please comment and tell me your perfect palettes πŸ™‚


xoxo Lily


  • LOL at Desert Island! You know Lily I’d still bring my bronzer since I’ll probably do my best to find a cave and avoid the sun! πŸ™‚ I looove Chanel Charming and I’m so happy to have indulged. Now I’m even more attracted by Lorac’s but I guess I’m safe for now since it’s not available in my area. πŸ™‚

    • LOL I think it’s because I prefer to have pasty pale skin than staying in the sun. I don’t mind NOT having bronzer at all. Hahahaha!

  • Love this! Thanks for the tag! I’ll do it!
    Love all your picks! That Lunasol cheek palette looks amazing!

    • That Lunasol cheek palette is customized – I have good taste eh? Right? Right? LOL!

  • the Liu palette is my favorite, too! i seriously went gah gah over this last year. ;p
    and your customized palette looks fab! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Lena! I love my customized palettes πŸ™‚

  • Ting

    This is such a cool post. I have fun reading as eyeshadows are my weakness… haha

    I love your customised palette among all. I never thought about depotting them Naked shadows. What a genius idea! Next I’m checking out your other post on how to do that! πŸ˜€

    • Eyeshadows are my weakness too. I have so many it’s ridiculous. I actually didn’t plan to depot my Naked palette, but it was a crazy depotting phase I went through and Naked was one of the victims.

  • sataa

    Love your picks especially the Chanel Charming palette the colors are so pretty and perfect for everyday wear πŸ™‚

    • Charming is great for every day. You should get it!

  • Such a lovely wrap-up of gorgeous palettes. I havent tried Lorac one so maybe I should. I completely agree with you on Liu Palette, it was my favorite for a long time but i didn’t pick up this year’s palette. I was only not so happy having lipsticks (creme) next to eye shadows (powder). I wear Chanel Charming today which is my go-to palette at the moment. Loving it!

    • Hi Sara. Liu is the only palette I like even there’s a mix of cream and powder!

  • OOO that Lunasol blush palette looks so good! I don’t have a blush palette at all, and now I feel so deprived LOL

    • LOL Sunny. You can always create your own Lunasol blush palette, you know. I’d love to see what you pick!


    Thanks for the tag, Lily. I’m thinking right now. I hope I don’t have ten, LOL. I need to seriously re-assess my life, LOL.

    • Lol Larie. For all you know, you might have more than ten! Gasp!

  • Oh gosh, I still swoon every time I see your customized Lunasol palette, Lily! It’s just soooooooo so so pretty!! And all are shades I would choose in my own palette too. Plus I’ve seen you swatch them and I know they run a bit sheer, which I LOVE. Really need to get my hands on my own custom Lunasol palette! πŸ˜›

    • Yes you need to! If you need my help, just let me know. They do swatch sheer but they look so gorgeous on the skin!! You’ll love it!

  • I love this! Great picks! I think I might have to participate and do this tag! πŸ™‚

    • Yes you have to do this tag!

  • *dying at all of these exquisite (virgin!) pictures* lmao
    Can I be a total perv and request well-loved pictures, as a fun spinoff? πŸ˜€ I love grubby makeups.

    • LOL you like it dirrrrrrty πŸ˜› I wonder if I have any grubby makeups. I’m quite anal about cleaning up my mess and even though there are dips in the makeup, they still look clean. I shall put up pictures of my well loved products, for sure!

  • i have such an urge to buy all the palettes right now lolol. trying to contain myself haha!

    • LOL… palettes are awesome!

  • Liz

    I LOVE PALETTES! *drooling*

    Oh man, Lunasol. I saw those at Singapore and wanted so badly. Show us more! MOAR!

    Hmmm… I lost my dignity somewhere in this comment. Oh well. πŸ˜€

    • LOL… DO THIS TAG!!!!!!!!!

  • OMG! That Lunasol blush palette is everything! I totally started collecting MAC because of watching too many YouTube videos! Lol. I started mostly with blush, which I rarely use. πŸ™‚

    • Oh yeah, I have a MAC blush palette too, but I don’t mind them πŸ™‚

  • BooBooNinja

    Woo hoo! am so cool! I am so cool!
    Sorry, that was off-key.

    Thanks for doing this tag! It’s fun to see your choices out of all the palettes you own. I looked up the Guerlain Lui palette and yes — the packaging is gorgeous and far better than this year’s holiday palette. The latter seems less glossy and “blah”. While I am a serial depotter, I value good looking packaging. I just haven’t bought a palette pretty enough not to depot yet.

    Thanks for doing the tag! *smooooch!*

    • LOL… thanks for tagging me!

  • That Lunasol Blush Palette! Why is this the first time I’m reading about it? *heads over to article now*

    • Lol yes this palette seems to garner lots of love!

  • I love this tag and I love looking at everyone’s palette favorites! I think my customizable palettes are my favorite as well πŸ™‚

    • Hey Monika, customised palettes are the best indeed. After all, they are tailor made to our preferences πŸ™‚
