On of the things I have wanted to do during my no-buy is to compile a list of different palettes I'm drawn to and have been drawn to for a while. I wanted to see the common trends between them, as well as figuring out if I'm just caught in the hype or if I genuinely want them. So here is a list of palettes I don't own but would love to own.

This was actually the first product I ever saw from Odenseye and I almost bought this over their Älva palette. The only reason I didn't buy this one instead was that I heard that the shimmer formula in the Solmåne was more smooth and more satin-like (even though there not satins) so I went with the Älva instead. However spoiler if you haven't read my review on the Älva palette, I love the quality of Odenseye shadows and now I regret not picking this on up also. The tones in this palette are what I like in neutrals, this palette makes me feel inspired to use neutral shades and again, the formula from Odenseye is great. I think about this palette a lot.
Natasha Denona Gold

This palette has been on my wish list for such a long time. I love the warm, murky mustard tones and hints of green- they are some of my favourite colours right now. I have never tried any eyeshadows from Natasha Denona before, so I really can't justify the price of this palette. It's so expensive! I've considered picking it up in the Black Friday sales but even then it's a lot of money. Maybe one day this will be mine but for right now I can't seem to buy it.
Kaleidos Makeup Futurism III: Astro Pink

This is a palette I have been thinking about for about 2 years but I always manage to talk myself out of it as it reminded me a lot of the Dose of Colors x Iluvsarahii collaboration, which I own already. However, some of those shades didn't really compliment my skin tone so I ended up decluttering some of the shades from it. I feel like I probably would have been better off owning this palette instead as the tones would be more flattering on me. Also I have to just acknowledge how beautiful this packaging is.

Again, Kaleidos have the most beautiful packaging ever. I've realised one of my favourite shades to wear on my eyes are warm greens and this is colour story is such a lovely selection of those tones, as well as a nice pop of orange. I have considered buying the Melt Cosmetics Gemini instead of this but from what I've heard Kaleidos has the more reliable formula.

This palette hasn't been out for that long and it is huge. I'm not usually into massive palettes as I get decision fatigue so easily, I tend to prefer palettes that have at most16 shades. However, I've heard such amazing things about Glamlite's formula over the years and I've been waiting for them to release an eyeshadow palette that doesn't have such insane packaging. Now that they've finally done that I'm still on the fence because it's so huge, but there are so many pretty pastel shades as well as some stunning looking shimmers.
Lunar beauty Moonspell

As I've mentioned a couple of times in this post, I love purple and green eyeshadows and this palette has such a lovely combination of those tones. I feel like it offers a lot of versatility because of this, as well as the inclusion of the neutral row too. Also I love the theming of this palette, it has a clear inspiration behind it that is reflected in both the colours and packaging. It's so cohesive. I've never tired anything from Lunar Beauty and to be honest I was hesitant to try it due to the owners past controversies but I feel like enough time has past for me to not feel conflicted about it.
Are there any palettes you've had your eye on but not bought yet? Let me know which ones would be on your list. Thanks for reading!
