Reader's Say: Do you prefer eyeshadow palettes or eyeshadow singles?

Hey Everyone!



Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Mine was very relaxed and I took the much needed break from work since last couple of weeks were quite hectic. Being passionate about makeup and beauty related things I quite enjoy reading and participating in healthy discussions about all makeup and beauty products, so I thought why not lets start a new section 'Reader's Say' where in I would share my opinion about a particular question or a product or a technique and you all can of course share their opinion about the same. This is a great way of sharing and learning about new things, so what say dear readers? Are you ready?

For today's topic I decided to ask your opinion and preference on single eyeshadows vs eyeshadow palettes, so do you prefer eyeshadow palettes or eyeshadow singles?

When I first started my journey into makeup I was more attracted towards eyeshadow singles. Being neutral lover I always ventured into getting single neutral eyeshadows from different brands like MAC,Inglot, Colorbar etc which catered perfectly to my everyday makeup needs without spending a bomb on huge palettes which at that time I found no use of!

However as the years passed on I confess I prefer to buy eyeshadow palettes now rather than going for singles. Firstly palettes are much more travel friendly since you get a range of shades and a lot of times one single palettes have all the shades from lid color to crease to highlight to create that perfect look. I also find palettes to be of great value for money, though being on a bit expensive side in palettes but you get 8 to 12 shades which if calculated comes to much cheaper than getting 12 single eyeshadows.

I still collect singles but I prefer shades which are unique and which can be worn alone without adding another shade in the crease. This way I can get the look done within minutes rather than searching for a crease color to go with my lid color.

Another thing I love doing is to create my custom palette using my Inglot refills! Absolutely love Inglot for such a concept makes it so much easier for one to create a custom palette with all the shades you need plus not to mention it becomes travel friendly as well. Inglot has wide range of custom palettes available few with options of having a blush, a compact and eyeshadow refill all together! Perfect for travelling!

So whats your opinion? Do you prefer purchasing palettes or you tend to get single eyeshadows? Please do share your thoughts and also if you have any single eyeshadows or palettes which you love please do share their names below in the comment section I would love to know about them :)

Until next time take care and stay beautiful <3


Lots of Love,

  6. Palettes - Hands down until a single eyeshadow has an alluring shade and high on pigmentation - I love Maybelline Tattoos in that case :)
