ELF 6 in 1 palette [review with swatches!] #date night !

HELLO GUYS!!




 I received this palette earlier on this month,
and I got to try it out..
and here is what I honestly think about it.
Now I received this palette for free,
but when I get a product I always say my genuine opinion,
because that's what people want to hear.
I'm going to show you the product,
and  explain what it is,
and what I honestly think.
This may come off harsh,
but I don't beat around the bush when it comes to my opinion.
I say it as it is,
regardless whether I got it for free or paid for it with my own money.

GENERAL THOUGHTS ABOUT THE 6 IN 1
 So..
The pigmentation is not consistent.
Some of the eyeshadows are barely visible .. 
some of the shades are decently pigmented..
some of the shades are nicely pigmented.
Some of them are powdery, some of them are not powdery.  

Overall.. being a matte eyeshadow lover.
I feel this 6 in 1 pallette lacks mattes.
out of 60 eyeshadows .. 
there are only 10 eyeshadows which have a matte or satin finish.

These matte/ satin eyeshadows are almost all very hard to swatch or even apply.
I feel every palette should have a highlighting shade, one for the brow bone and one for the inner corner. 
Unfortunately only 1 palette (pretty picnic) has enough highlighters for the inner corner and the browbone.
I feel there should be more highlighters.. 
because it's useless to carry one of these when I don't have enough highlighting shades in the 10 eyeshadow palette. 


And also.. 
when using the eyeshadow palettes.. expect fall out on the lipglosses. 
So even if you happen to like them.. 
which I highly doubt you will..
you won't get much use out of them. 

Compared to the 32 eyeshadow palette texture, 
I feel these are more nicely pressed (overall)
but some of them still have a powdery consistency..
not AS powdery as the 32 eyeshadow palette. 

Very few shades, I found, were prone to creating fallout. 


All swatches were done over ELF's mineral eyeshadow primer
and were swatched with the ELF eyeshadow c brush.
(I always swatch eyeshadows with no primer ..
but boy was it hard to swatch without primer..
so that says a lot)



The lipglosses SUCK. 
I'm not going to lie. 
They do suck. 
They call them lip colors... 
but they're more of a sheer slightly glossy consistency. 
I found them very hard to swatch, 
very sticky.



A closer look at: DATE NIGHT. 


 


I will be talking about the eyeshadows only,
since I hate the glosses,
and I will be reviewing the blushes in a seperate post.

I swatched these row, after row, after row..



 


EYSHADOW SHADES:



A sheer frosty silvery white
Then the rest of the palette is basically slightly different shades of grey, 
some of them have slight different finishes. 
But essentially the same

Overall, this was the biggest disappointment as a palette. 
Too many duplicates or almost duplicates. 
It is decently pigmented though, so I have to give them credit for that. 




But the silvery white shade barely shows up - 
even over primer and applied with the ELF eyeshadow c brush. 


Honestly though..
I am showing you the products as they are for you to see. 
 BUT since I am here to review these..
No, I don't recommend getting this. 
I think it's a "meh" item. 
I think ELF needs to work on the formula of their eyeshadows because overall, they are not that good. 
except for the mineral eyeshadows, 
those are gorgeous. 

the lipglosses



I hate reviewing products I don't like..
but if that's what it is,
that's what it is.
Thanks for reading guys,
I will be reviewing the 5 other palettes soon,
and the blushes too. :)
So stay tuned guys,
Dyna

  1. I would never get this now. They look very sheer and I wonder what to do with so many duplicate shades. :) Thanks for sharing! xx
