I love ELF Cosmetics. Their products are so bright and pretty and at such amazing prices! I received this beautiful Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Seattle as a birthday present back in January but have been so in love with my Urban Decay palettes that it hasn’t had much usage, until this month. I have been really enjoying experimenting with the bright colours and purple shades!
I love the simplistic packaging and think the black palette makes the shades stand out perfectly. It would be even better if it came with an eyeshadow brush built in so you wouldn’t have to carry a brush separately but the clasp is secure an it has a built-in mirror so it can be used on the go.
The pigmentation is good and the colours are really nice and vibrant. You do have to layer them up quite a bit but they do look fabulous when they’re on the eyes. As there is an array of shades you can create so many looks with these shades, and they are different from my usual browns, bronzes and golds. Sometimes it’s nice to have a little change and brighten up your make-up!
I was actually really impressed with the durability of this eyeshadow. I wore it last night for a night out and had a few too many drinks (as usual) and it still looked perfect when I staggered into my house in the early hours. It looked bright and I loved it!
All in all this is a really good palette and I am really impressed with it. It’s not as good as the high end palettes but it costs just £10 and has a range of shades, it’s long lasting and it has great pigmentation. There’s not much more you can ask for in a palette!
Now for the Eyeshadow Brush. Again, I was really impressed. The brush is really soft and delicate so it doesn’t hurt or tug at the eyes and as it is rounded it’s great for brushing, blending and lining. As the brush tip is small and strong it means your eyeshadow is applied neatly and doesn’t fly away. It worked brilliantly with the palette and costs just £1.50! Another absolute bargain.
I am really impressed with the high quality of ELF products considering their low prices and they are perfect for girls on budget. They have so many amazing, bright colourful products! And the girls in the ELF store in Cardiff are so lovely and such talented MUAs. I cannot wait to buy some more now!
Have you tried any of ELF cosmetics?
Lots of love,
