Let's start by talking about the packaging; It comes in a book like presentation, easy to carry along with you, perfect to take with you on a little trip/vacay.
As you open it, you will find a few sheets (if we could call them that) with "How to" tips For day and night looks, which i think its pretty cool! Specially for us the newbies! :)
and also it brings four (4) Eye charts, so you can Practice or keep track of a look you might have created and you just dont want to forget how you did it!, has happened to me soo many times! lool
It Brings twelve (12) good size eye shadows, that go from Nude tones to more colorful ones, most of then with some sort of shimmer in them, actually i am gonna go ahead and describe them one by one (from left to right):
The 1st color is a Shimmery white with silver under tone to it.
The 2nd color is a very light Shimmery brown (which i found awfully similar to the fourth and fifth color)
The 3th color is a Pale Rose.
The 4th color---> look back color number two.
The 5th color---> ^ Ditto.
The 6th color is one of my Favorites, its just a Olive Green with a golden under tone to it.
The 7th color is a turquoise Blue.
The 8th color is a dark brown.
The 9th color is very light grey.
The 10th color is a Purple.
The 11th color is a Red which i like very much.
And last but not least the 12th color which is a Black with silver Shimmer to it. :)
The kit also brings a good size mirror,a mini Eye liner and an applicator for the Eye shadows.
I was so excited to get this palette on the mail, Specially since i totally love E.L.F but it truly disappointed me when i first tried it ;
The pigmentation is just not there (only a few of then have a barely decent pigmentation) .
Some of the colors seem kinda chalky, and clumpy, the first three colors have so little pigmentation that all you can see is glitter , although the fourth and fifth are very beautiful shades.
The green, blue, purple gray and red are pretty decent, those are pretty bright, but the black is horrible, i would describe it more as a gray.
But oh well for $5 bucks there is not much to be expected.
Here are the swatches:
|Colors are also a little clumpy. :(|
They seen to crease very easily, even with the use of a primer.
I dont think i would be using this product anymore since it made my eyes turn red and water a lot (but i think this happened because i used the black shade on my lid and the glitters on this shadow are super big, so i think that it might have fallen on my eyes and caused the irritation) , therefor of course i would not recommend this to a friend.
I do like the eyeliner thought. :)

Bye for Now.
