Review: ELF 32 Piece Cool Eyeshadow Palette


I bought this palette last December at Crossings Department Store in Quezon City. Back then, I just swatched a few shades out of curiosity. I never liked buying huge palettes because there are only few colors that usually works for me. But then again, the budding makeup artist in me encouraged me to buy starter palettes like this. I was torn between the warm palette and this, but since I was so eager to learn blending colors, I picked this instead.

This 32 shade palette has a combination of pastels and brights. It comes with an applicator which, ugh, I'm telling you, you need to buy a good set of brushes, check this out:


The mirror is too short and wide, which was probably made 'for your eyes only' :)) And the applicator pan is spacious enough to store 2-3 slim eyeshadow brushes. Moving along, here a closer look on the shades:

Some colors have matte texture, and some are satin. Not all colors are highly pigmented but you can work it by adding on extra layers. Better yet, use a primer or base to make the colors pop. The pictures I'm going to show you are swatches I did for each row.




The colors may slightly vary in actual, especially the 3rd row.  These were applied without base or primer, so you can see how they look on bare skin. These would look even better with primer.

I do not regret buying this palette at all. If you would ask me to rate this, I'd give 8 out of 10. It may not be the best or the most pigmented, but it is definitely worth checking out!  Just be careful not to drop it. :)

Not sure if this cool edition is still available, since this is part of their Spring 2012 Warm and Cool collection. But you can always check out their Endless Eyes limited edition collection. Here are some of them:
