Quick Question: Does Anyone Ever Use EVERY Shade in Their Eyeshadow Palette?

You’ve probably heard by now that we’re teaming up with Glamour for our July Birchbox. To help celebrate this awesome partnership, the gracious Girls in the Beauty Department will be sharing their beauty expertise with us for an entire month. Lucky us!

I’m on the hunt for an ah-mazing bachelorette gift for my soon-to-be sister-in-law, and since she loves makeup—and I know makeup—it’s definitely what I’ll be getting for her. She’s beyond obsessed with eyeshadow, so an expansive palette makes the most sense, yes?

I’ve searched high and low for the perfect one, and there are several that I’m eyeing (like the Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette shown above), but I can’t help but wonder—since palettes boast every color in the rainbow, will she even use every shade that’s featured?

I only ask because even though I own virtually every eyeshadow shade there is, I find myself reaching for a gorgeous chocolatey brown hue day after day after day. And if I’m feeling frisky, then maybe—just maybe, I’ll reach for black. That’s where I live—brown and black. I know, I know. Every girl isn’t me, but if you aren’t a beauty writer or a makeup artist, who needs 88 eyeshadows?

Am I over-thinking this, or are massive palettes a wasteful purchase (if you don’t plan to use every shade)?
