I spied this colorful 32 piece E.L.F. palette in Target a month or so ago. I told myself that I didn't need it. I don't need it. I wanted it. So I was a good girl and I ignored it and kept my $6 and forgot about it. Ok I didn't forget about it. I saw it two more times and resisted the temptation. Yesterday I went to Target and I noticed that I didn't see the palette anymore and I was about to kick myself. Then I went to my "spot".. The cosmetics and beauty clearance section... I found it for $3.68. ALL I DO IS WIN!!!!
I'm going to skip the crap and get straight to the review. I noticed that the eyes shadows are not all evenly pigmented. The bolder darker colors are really pigments and the color payoff is great. Some of the neutral and lighter colors aren't as pigmented and appeared a bit dull and chalky (packing the color on the brush led to the chalkiness.
Lots of colors to choose from
You can do lots of looks with this one palette.
Glitter fallout. Big chunky glitter fallout. Glitter everywhere. Like Urban Decay chunky glitter fallout
All of the colors are pigmented equally.
Overall Rating 5/♥ ♥ ♥
Seriously I got this for less than $4. I was really annoyed by the chunky glitter fallout because I wan't expecting it and I was kinda annoyed that I had to remove it after I had already done my face makeup. (I'm weird, sometimes I do my face first, sometimes I do it last depends on my mood and my knowledge of potential glitter fallout). If you use a base the pigmentation issues aren't a big deal. I noticed that stickier/creamy bases work better. UDPP or Too Faced Shadow Insurance isn't enough. They worked will with NYX Jumbo Pencils and MAC Paint Pots.
So run to Target and check out the clearance section near the cosmetics before it's gone.
