~Weekly Product Highlight~e.l.f. Eyeshadow Palette -Mad for Matte~

 

I had ordered this e.l.f. Eyeshadow Palette -Mad for Matte a long time ago, and it took so long to arrive that I had almost given up on it and then had I actually forgotten about it.  Unfortunately, it is sold out on the elf website, but can usually be found at Target and CVS and Target.com.

I just love matte neutral shadows!

 

I purchased this matte palette on the recommendation of Tati from GlamLifeGuru on YouTube.  She always give the best recommendations, so I knew that it was going to be a great palette.

Here is what I think about this palette…

Pros:
This 10 shade palette only cost $10!
The shadows are smooth and creamy.
They apply easily and blend like a dream.
You can easily get a complete eye look out of this one palette.
There are so many options for a great crease shade and several great transition shades.

Cons:
While there are 10 shades in this palette several of them are so similar that when used together they look like the same shade.
It can end up looking muddy if blended all together.
It is constantly “sold out” so it is not easy to get your hands on.

Yes, there are actually 10 shades swatched in this picture.  I am just so ghostly pale that 3 blend right in rather than stand out!
