✮✮✮Palette(s) of the Month Round Up✮✮✮January✮✮✮

How often did I reach for this palette? Why or Why not?

I reached for both palettes a fair amount, but I definitely will be pulling them into another rotation. I had eye look ideas that I didn't get an opportunity to create because of the sheer size of my collection. As I continue to curate my collection with the items I really want, I am seeing a pattern in what I look for in all the things I want to purchase, including eyeshadow palettes.

Did I enjoy using this/these palette(s)? Why or Why not?

Again, because of the size of my eyeshadow collection, I don't think any of my palettes get enough love or appreciation. The idea behind my collection is that is personal to me, it's functional for me, and that the function varies from palette to palette. If that palette has no function, then it has no place.

Did I rediscover a fondness for this/these palette(s) or did I discover that I was fonder of this/these palette(s) than I realize?

I realize that I prefer J Cat's formula (private label or not) to that of my other similarly large eyeshadow palettes. I also like the ease and simplicity of both palettes, which is probably why I picked them. The J Cat Beauty Palette had a matte and matching shimmer, which create a cohesive simple look. The NYX Swear By It Palette had a ton of colorful shades, which I enjoyed, but I felt the price was outrageous.

If I lost this/these palette(s), would I repurchase?

This is a good question for me to answer. It helps determine if the palettes are worth keeping. I would repurchase the J Cat Beauty Palette at a BOGO price, and I would only repurchase the NYX palette if it was severely discounted. They are two affordable brands I like to have in my collection.

With this experience and knowledge regarding use of this/these palette(s), what would I do differently (regarding this/these purchases, future purchases of similar products, trends?

I wouldn't ever purchase 35 or larger pan palettes. I think 24 is the most I am comfortable with. Sometimes I like things to be very simple and not have to think which is why I like the J Cat palette, but other times, I like a fun affordable color palette, in which case I would purchase the NYX palette at a very reduced price.

Keep, Declutter, or Probation?

2 on Probation!

  1. Oh, I love this idea for a blog post! I don’t have either of these palettes but they both look beautiful! I’ve been wanting to try more NYX.
