E.L.F. Eye-shadow palette – Let the colors speak

“Colors Speak Louder than Words”

Hi Loves,

Sorry I have been little MIA in the last week due to cold and long weekend but I am back now. Today I am going talk about COLORS. There is a quote from Essie “There is no beauty without colors”. There are a lot of people who say a natural look is the best which I definitely agree but I also believe a little color on it makes it more stunning. I love colors, not a specific one, I love them all be it natural, matte, glossy, satin everything. Specifically when it comes to eye-shadows, I really want to try out all diverse colors and see how I look. So I love to have a big eye-shadow palette where I have vast lot of options to choose from.

The More colors the Better

When I talk about large eye-shadow palettes with enormous quantity of vivid striking colors, the brand that comes to mind is always E.L.F. They make the most vibrant eye-shadows with bigger palettes having a mix of matte, natural and glossy shades. And to put a cherry on that, their prices are so affordable. Getting a 100 or 144 shade palette in the price they give is an absolute bargain.

A little info on E.L.F.

Before I start going to the review let me talk a little bit about the company. e.l.f.

Its eye makeup products comprise eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascara and eyelashes, and eyebrow grooming products; lip care products include lipsticks, glosses, and liners; and face makeup products consist of foundation products, primers, blushes, powders, concealers, bronzers, tinted moisturizers, shimmers, and luminizers.

As of August 2016, it operated 9 stores in the New York metro area. The company was formerly known as J.A. Cosmetics Holdings, Inc. and changed its name to e.l.f. Beauty, Inc. in April 2016. e.l.f.

I bought this E.L.F 100 piece eye-shadow palette from Amazon because I was in need of additional colors for my eyes. The price was the cheapest here and shipping was fast. This palette has everything you’ll ever need to move from dark and Smokey eyes to fresh, bright ones to totally fun and funky looks. It comes with a mirror and 2 double-sided eye-shadow applicators. Here is my review on the Pros and Cons along with how you can overcome the Cons.

The PROS

  • The colors are extremely bright, vibrant and bold with a lot of options to choose from. Versatility and diversity is evident from the shade selection. You will most probably find every shade, more or less, complying with your demands.
  • The prices are unbeatable and the quality is much better compared to other drug store eye shadows which are sold at the same price.
  • The texture of the shadows are pretty smooth and they stay on my eye quite a good amount of time.
  • As a blogger I really need to play with the eye-shadows to create different looks and this is perfect for that purpose. If you are starting to adapt to eye shadows or you are trying to practice as a blogger or beautician to create different looks, then this is THE PERFECT product.
  • The packaging is attractive with clear cover that allows to see the colors through the packaging.
  • The palette contains great variation in finish of eye shades; some shades are matte, some are satin and few are shimmery, but the different thing is the presence of a few marble textured eye shadows.

The CONS

  • I must admit not all the colors are highly pigmented especially the matte ones. But if you use eye primer along with a good brush like this. It comes out great.
  • The texture is a little powdery so be gentle using a good brush so that you do not break chunks from the top.

Deep dive into the colors

It has multiple shades of green and I love the dark forest green. Similarly, there are a number of beautiful shades of purple, turquoise and violet to choose from. The middle section has a lot shimmery colors and they have best pigmentation. There are some gorgeous oranges and mid tone pinks. The last ones are a large number of natural shades in grey, brown, nudes and silvers. There are a quite a few interesting shades in these which you do not find easily on other palettes.

    I am a sucker for eye shadows. Thanks for the review. I’ve never actually bought ELF products because I’ve been skeptical of the low price. This makes me want to give them a shot.

    • Reply thatneongirl2016@gmail.com March 6, 2017 at 12:38 am

      I was skeptical too in the start but for eye shadow ELF is quite good. Their quality is way better compared to the price. Try it out once, I am sure you will love it!!

    I imagine my cousin would enjoy something like this! She’s really creative with her eye make-up. I prefer more neutral colors and will only wear 2-3 shades on my lids!

    I love ELF stuff and all the colors in these palettes! I remember when you could only buy ELF online and everything was $1 (way back forever ago when I was in college)! It makes me happy to see how far they’ve come since then.

      Ohh I never knew about this back then. Although reading about the brand really tells how good progress they have made. It is my absolute favorite.

  • Reply lianne February 27, 2017 at 12:33 pm

    I love that there are so many colours to choose from! I love a green eyeshadow best as I have hazel coloured eyes and wearing green eyeshadow brings out the green in my eyes more and there are lots of lovely shades to choose from in this!
