I am in LOVE with my Lorac PRO palette. I even have a few of the smaller ones from the Holiday Collection. I adore my Inglot (Freedom) because they are the colors I chose.

I am loving my Yaby, LORAC Pro, and Ben Nye the most. I have the Kryolan Brights and like that for the most part, though some colors are more intensely pigmented than others.

Lorac pro palette is great! The colors blend sooo well and there are beautiful neutrals. Has anyone tried her blushes? I'm curious if they have the same softness to the powder. Maybe it's the silicone in there?

The baked Matte Satin blushes are nice and blendable, the textures vary a bit. My picks would be "Velvet Rope" for lighter skintones, and "Hollywood" is amazing on women of color, especially on the deeper end of the spectrum, it just lights up the cheeks.

I've ordered all of their powder cheek stains for the studio (I've swatched and have a depotting tutorial but it may be quite some time before I can blog it, as I just got a last-minute film deal). The colors and staying power are marvelous, and it's less fussy than a liquid or gel stain.

I have to say Yaby. 
I was not one who wanted to admit it because the prices seemed high at first glance.  I had the opportunity last year to visit the Yaby pop up shop in Harlem and really test the products with Roshar. Roshar told me he strictly uses Yaby, which for sure built value for me.
I was astounded at the smooth blending and almost obscene pigmentation. The size is brilliant because now my kit is sooo much lighter with loads more room.  You can reorder any color at anytime!  I suspect that I am a Yaby lifer.  They have spoiled me with brilliant shadows, face powders and blushes. 
The client/talent is always so curious of who I'm using in these brilliant little palettes which is nice when they appreciate the efforts I make to have a true clean, professional kit wink

You get 40% off during a number of YABY events so contact them to see when you can take advantage of that..I did!

I love the Lorac PRO palette and the Ben Nye Glamour Palette for neutral/natural colors.

For colorful palettes, I recommend the Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Palette and Inglot Freedom system to fill in with other colors and different textures/finishes.

I am dying to try Yaby but I have a feeling that once I try Yaby, I won't go back to anything else smile

With so many differences of opinion, it might be more interesting if more of the "why" was included in responses.

I'm very pleased with the Yaby Dramatically Neutral palette. Like the others have said - it's a great range of highly pigmented color for such a light weight palette. smile

Yaby hands down

The pallets hold a huge color range in a small space, a wide variety of colors to choose from. Excellent coverage and blend-ability.

Great suggestions here, I am also going to recommend the Lorac Pro Pallette. I use mine all of the time and absolutely love it.
