E.L.F. Studio Eye Enhancing Eyeshadow Palettes are a range six coordinating shades of eyeshadow to compliment your eye color. This isn’t a new idea at all considering Almay, Covergirl, and many other brands have released similiar products.
Personally, I’m all about wear what you want however, I guess it’s quite nice having contrasting shades that supposedly compliment your own eye color. Being the rebel that I am (ha!) I got the Blue Eyes 1 selection rather than either of the two Brown Eye Palettes. Shrug! What? I liked the shades in this the best, sue me!
Jump ahead for more.
E.L.F. Studio Eye Enhancing Eyeshadow Palette are available in six shade selections with each palette having six shades of eyeshadow per palette. They are $6 each so quite budget friendly and competitive to drugstore brands who you would probably spend more or around the same price on.
The palette comes in the traditional NARS-like packaging that E.L.F. uses for their Studio products but of course, these lack the messy rubber of NARS version.
I’d like to rave these but I think they are poorer quality. I’ve run across E.L.F. Eyeshadows I liked very much both singles and in some of their larger palette releases and I must say these aren’t anything like those in terms of quality and formulation.
These kick up a fair bit of powder when a brush is applied to them and have a chalky, cheaper formula that isn’t particularly user friendly during application. They apply patchy with a chalky, drier finish that’s terribly unflattering. In all fairness you might be able to get some use out of these if you spend a little more time prepping however I felt they lacked pigmented and go a little muddy when used together.
Overall, I’ve met a few E.L.F. eyeshadow and eyeshadow palettes I’ve liked but sadly the Eye Enhancing Eyeshadow Palette aren’t worth your six dollars. Don’t bother. Spend the money on something else from the brand as these simply don’t cut it. Perhaps with a thinner cream shadow under them they might produce better results but meh who wants to go to the extra trouble during application?
