E.L.F. Snow & Ice Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Snow & Ice Glow Eyeshadow Palette

The E.L.F. Snow & Ice Glow Eyeshadow Palette ($6.99) is a limited edition palette that launched with the E.L.F. Frozen Elsa Makeup Collection a few months ago.

Considering the E.L.F. Snow & Ice Glow Eyeshadow Palette has some very fun shades for Summer looks I decided to haul it out for a review and swatch session today!

E.L.F. Snow & Ice Glow Palette

E.L.F. doing Disney makeup inspired collaborations for a while now but it’s nice to see how evolved particularly with the Frozen Collection. This collection and the E.L.F. Beauty and the Beast Collection are quite extensive as they now include not only the Lookbook Palettes and makeup sets but also a range of single makeup products like lipgloss, eyeshadow pots, and this nine shade eyeshadow palette.

I think the palette is adorable! It features a print of Elsa on the clear compact with little snowflake detailing. It’s really quite cute and reminds me of the Peripera Frozen Makeup Collection that launched in Korea!

The palette holds nine total shades of eyeshadow and is quite a nice compact size that will travel and store easily. The shades aren’t particularly Frozen or “snow and ice” inspired aside from the aqua and teal colors included. You get a round up of several different shade matches here that will work in trios in my opinion. There’s an aqua tea trio, a cranberry trio, a purple trio, and a cream and gold trio. The colors are a little mismatched at a glance but if you group them into twos or threes they’ll work fine together.

This is more a collector’s piece in my opinion which is great for fans of Frozen because the actual eyeshadow is rubbish in my opinion. I find the Look Book Palettes have a softer more buttery textured eyeshadow. The eyeshadows in the Snow & Ice Eyeshadow Palette are considerably drier and apply patchy on my eyes. I had difficulties building up color on my lids because as I blended they tended to sheer out and fade. Even with primer I noticed the colors didn’t wear long and tended to fade and lose vibrancy within a few hours of wear. I’m not particularly keen on the formula either as they seemed to drag across my lid due to the dryness. They aren’t chalky thankfully but they aren’t buttery or soft either which made for crummy application in my opinion.

I think E.L.F. did a great job with the Frozen Makeup Collection and I love they extended the collections to include new items but unfortunately, I’m not really impressed with some of these offerings.

The E.L.F. Snow and Ice Eyeshadow Palette is cute but that’s sadly all it has going for it.

  • Ruth

    OMG we’re like the pot and kettle! we’re both bad influences on each other! i totally ordered them along with Hagrid and Harry Potter. i have to purge some (a lot) of my toys to make room for more.

    • Isabella Muse

      I was good because I knew I’d do damage on the floor this Saturday when I’m at SDCC so I avoided purchasing anything online until I get home πŸ˜€ I have to purge too but it’s hard πŸ™

  • Ruth

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! i’m so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you have a freakin’ blast! and need pics of of the toys you get there!

    • Isabella Muse

      but of course! πŸ™‚ I just hope I can handle myself because last time I went it got a little out of control! the life of a fangirl…

    • Isabella Muse

      lol! Naa cash for me or debit, Ruth! Credit is dangerous!

      • Ruth

        your plan is way super better! I hope you have (or had) safe travels

        • Isabella Muse

          haha at least I thought it was but of course, still got in trouble πŸ™‚

          • Ruth

            did you get ALL THE TOYS?? and did you get to see any of the panels? and the star wars thing? and all of the other other cool things? one of these years, I gotta go.

          • Isabella Muse

            yes! I got the other Dalek statue I was hunting down πŸ™‚ I also got a ton of pop figures, some fabulous book ends, and a bunch of other crap I surely didn’t need but was couldn’t resist. A friend of my mine was working PR for a panel so I got to be backstage for it which was wildly cool plus we got into a few events like the Once panel sans the huge lines πŸ˜€ You def should! It’s a geek’s dream world!

  • Ayman

    WOW….You look so gorgeous with that blue eyeshadow….and swatches are pretty too…..Thanks for the review.

  • Ruth

    that’s so awesome! I watched a bit of the SPN panel on YT, and those guys just seem hella cool. I stopped watching a Once bit ago, just got too far behind and then my SPN obsession happened. thanks for the recommend! I freakin’ love it! maybe next year i’ll go and make my AmEx cry in agony

    • Isabella Muse

      I actually stopped too! I didn’t watch the season finale after finding out they were doing Camelot next season. It just seemed over freaking kill! The show was already a hot mess with so many characters but I heard Camelot and I was like, “Ok, that’s it, I can’t…”! haha or just go to entertainmentearth.com and make it cry πŸ˜€ P.S. SPN always has excellent panels be it at CC or other cons! πŸ˜€ they are just cool all around!

      • Ruth

        I think I stopped about midway through the 2nd season, too far behind and kinda really lost interest. I think it was when they brought in Mulan & Aurora. I loved the mythos of Camelot until I took a King Arthur studies class last summer, and really lost my infatuation.
        SPN is actually have a con here in DC but I waited too long to get tickets and it’s sold out. Thought about it too long and didn’t realize that it would sell out. I’ve watched their panels on YT and the guys are hilarious and bet they smell good =)

        • Isabella Muse

          You didn’t miss much in my opinion! they just keep introducing more and more characters and it just gets more and more boring with each introduction. And so many worlds! Wonderland, Oz, etc…etc…etc…YAWN! Dustin got tickets for the one in Seattle, he also went to the recent one they had and met Misha and took a rather epic photo with him and Mark πŸ˜€ lol! You’re silly!

  • Ruth

    cool, i was thinking about watching again because i see a ton of things about captain swan and regina/robin hood but if it just kinda boring, won’t bother. Mark & Misha are the diggity, and Misha’s blue eyes *swoon*. I know, but I can’t help myself & when I do, it explodes outta of me and is even worse!

    • Isabella Muse

      Those were all kinda cool but they jumped the shark with regina/robin, they had a love triangle going on that was kinda dumb, I won’t say more and ruin it just in case you go back to it! I agree πŸ˜€ I’ve met Mark at a con and his dad and both are super humble, great guys πŸ˜€ Have you ever watched some of the bloopers and extras? They are SO funny! Haha! πŸ˜€

      • Ruth

        nah, I don’t think that I’m going to. I’m catching up on Penny Dredful, i’ve only seen the first 3 eps this season. and maybe want to watch iZombie since I adore Veronica Mars, and possibly the 100. I watch waaaay too much TV as it is and if it a suck story, I’m so OK with dropping it. i love bloopers/outtakes! One of my favs is when Mark, Misha , & Jensen are still in a bus stop and Misha sneezes and mark blesses him and Jensen’s expression is like “can you believe this sh!t?”

        • Isabella Muse

          I watched izombie for like two episodes but couldn’t swing it. It was just too stupidly done to me! Penny Dreadful was good this season but kinda jumped the shark a little bit! I still watched though and enjoyed it. Really looking forward to the Strain πŸ˜€ I think a lot of series/shows are disposable lately, they just don’t keep my attention at all! That’s so sad because they have great potential! I never seen that one I don’t think I have to google haha!

  • Ruth

    I have the first 2 strain books, got about 100pgs into the first one and stopped reading it and haven’t watched the show yet. I read the iZombie comics and really enjoyed it and was hoping the show would be good. I’ll give it a go and stop watching if it sucks. I tried the watch The Messengers and watched about 3-4 eps and lost interest. people die and come back with powers and lucifer was trying to kill them and he came to earth via asteroid. I was done.

    I can’t tell you how many times i watched that clip and was laughing like a loon!

    • Isabella Muse

      The strain is pretty amazing! The books aren’t a spot on for the show but they still managed to jam the excitement of the books into it regardless. It’s quite well done. Let me know what you think about izombie, I’m curious what you think! I didn’t watch the messengers, didn’t quite catch me for obvious reasons πŸ˜€
