    Happy Sunday! Thank you to everyone who requested I film this in the ranking style - it was a challenge but it was a lot of fun :) I also wanted to say I was filming the day after finding out my Aunt had passed away and it was difficult to stay focused and enthusiastic, but I gave it my all. I am traveling this weekend for services so I won't be as active in my comment section as I usually am. Thank you so much for your support and kindness during this difficult time. Much Love.

    I love my Natasha Denona Mini Nude as well, but I think the shimmer shades have too much fall out =/
    My #1 palette since 2014 is still the Too Faced Chocolate Bar.

                  I absolutely agree about ABH - They are going HARD on releases, really it was just nuts for awhile there. I read that they said they're slowing their roll this year, which is good to hear.

                    Kelsey Smith thanks god, because I had to pass on a lot of their releases. I wish they slowed their roll. Also, their eyeshadow formula doesn't work the same a couple years down the line, so I'm gonna finish up some of their palettes before buying anything new.

                        A lot of work but very much appreciated. I wrote everything down and it will help me figure out where I should replenish my existing collection. Love your enthusiasm and really respect the way you indicate where you got the palettes from - I'm not 100% sure why it matters to me so much, but it does.

                        From all these brands, I only use #colourpop because living in Brazil, with our currency a quarter of dollar, only colourpop is worthy. And they send to Brazil. Great video!

                          Your eyes are so beautiful! I am ordering contacts and got a blue grey color hoping that they make my eyes the color of yours. Or close anyway. I have dark hair and think it would make me look totally different! This video had to take some time to put together! Thank you for this!

                            Idk if it’s just me, but the ABH Sultry palette and the Naked Reloaded Palette are totally “dupes” ( if I can call it that because they are both pretty pricey) of each other. They have almost, if not all, of the same colors and color story.

                              i actually thought the same when I first saw them, but I dont think they are as similar as I originally thought! Of course ... if you dont have a giant collection like me I think you could pick either or 😬😂

                            The..silvery pink shade in the colourpop palette is a supershock?? I love using it and everytime I touch it just feels so familiar, like what does this remind me of??😂😂🤦‍♀️ thank you for that

                              I literally bought 1 pallet in 2019, just an excel 4 shadow pallet. Came to the realization that it’s just physically impossible to use up eyeshadow.

                            Hey how did you remove the glitter from Tati palette ??? I kept getting the particles in my eyes and it was scratching and literally hurting I got so nervous both times I took them off, once with eye remover n pad once with makeup wipe so I haven’t been using it !!! :(

                              oh no! when i remove glitter I typically soak a pad in remover, hold it on my eye for several seconds and then wipe away. I havent had any issues that way!

                            It must be asked now that you have ranked these pallets and the phrase ‘ I don’t find myself teaching for this pallet a ton’, has been said repeatedly- how many of these pallets do you plan to get rid of/de clutter/dispense with? Loved the video by the way.💕💕
