REVIEW: ELF party palette limited edition [w/ make up look!!!!]
This is my review on ELF's essentials or regular line limited edition party palette. I love this palette. This is perfect to carry for smokey eyes and it works brilliantly. All eyeshadows are very pigmented, they are a bit powdery, but I love the texture.
The black and white shades are probably my favourites, the black is amazingly gorgeous with glitter, and the white is also with glitter. Very party-esque.
The purple is pretty gorgeous too, but I would have preferred it to be metallic to be honest.
The greys are pretty gorgeous too, and are pretty subtle, they can also be used for everyday :)
Now this is the only thing I don't get. The shade next to the white shade is a very light light blue. I never use this. I tried it for highlight, it looks horrible to be honest. If this shade was a light shimmery pink it would have worked much better.
I'd definitely stick this in my travel kit when I need a small smokey eye palette.
There is also another thing I don't like - the eyeshadows "expire" within 6 months of opening. How crazy is that? Actually I don't believe eyeshadows expire haha. I think it's just a myth. So I'll probably be using this beyond the 6 months.
I love that it comes with a small mirror, and the packaging is pretty sleek.
And I have to give ELF a thumbs up for the brush. It's like an ultra mini version of the ELF eyeshadow c brush, I hate the sponge tips the eyeshadow palettes usually come with, I never use them. It works great for applying eyeshadow along the lower rim :)
