The Perfect Palette Tag

So I was tagged by the lovely Bek to complete the 'Perfect Palette' tag.
I've now seen a bunch of tags going around on Instagram, Twitter & between bloggers. Unfortunately I don't either get a chance to complete my tag or completely forget (apologies to anyone that's tagged me).

For today though I actually have a spare hour to write up this post due to being stuck on the train. I don't use eyeshadow everyday & I don't go all out on my makeup.
My daily schedule is now 4:30am wake up & home by 6pm, I try my best to keep it simple & leave the dramatic makeup for the weekend.
Anyway let's start this off with my answers.

Best Packaging

Tough one for me, I like palettes that are simple in look & feel.  For this answer I'm going with my Urban Decay Naked Palettes, for the simple fact that they arnt over whelming & the clip closes the palettes completely.

(Minus naked one as it's the only palette in this serious that doesn't clip closed)

Best colour pay off

I have to go with my Chi Chi palettes. The shadows are super blendable & high in pigmentation. Match them with a Nyx Jumbo in 'milk' as the base & the colours pop.

Most Versatile

Has to be the Naked Palettes from Urban Decay, I'm selecting all four that I own as the answer because they all work perfectly for their own occasions & you can create so many different looks. 

Best for Travelling

Hands down my Naked Basics. There is nothing more simple than a small palette that you can whip out & create a simple eye look with.
I've never met a person who didn't like a smokey eye & I have taken this palette with me on almost every trip overseas.

Biggest Regret

Probably the one palette I've ever purchased online. A blush palette.
At the time (my beauty newbie years) I had no idea that BH Cosmetics make an identical one & this was a dupe. Although the blushes are extremely pigemented & well made I can't stand to use it without knowing what exactly its been made out of & the ingredients used.
This palette has sat in my draws for awhile now & it'll be one I'll probably give away to a friend. 

Best Colour Names

If I had the chocolate palette I'd pick that, but I don't. So I'm going with....... My TheBalm Nude Tude palette.
'Stubborn, Sassy & silly' it's exactly what I am. 

Least Used

My MUA pretty pastels palette. It's amazing but unfortunately I continually forget I own it.

Most Used

It's another one for the Urban Decay crew.
My Urban Decay Naked 2, it's my favorite ever made & I have used it countless times & not even hit pan. ;)

Most Loved

Again my Naked 2, if I ever finish this one up it'll be the first on my palettes repurchase list.

Desert Island

Why?? I don't think I'd ever take a palette if I had the choice. More or less it would be sunscreen, mascara & a good book.

Well that's the end of my palette tag.
If you head over to my instagram via the links below you'll see who I've tagged next for this round.
If you've already done the tag then let me know as I'm always up for a good read.
