In November 2015, I received some products from e.l.f. Cosmetics.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Marsala Blush (bottom right) and e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow in Sunset (top right). For this post, I will review the illuminating palette on the top left.
e.l.f. Illuminating Palette
Where to purchase: CVS, Target, Kmart and online at elfcosmetics.com
Price: $6 for 0.56 oz/ 16 g
Made in China
Description on the package: This powder illuminating palette holds 4 shades of color that are designed to mix and match for a custom blended radiance that captures, diffuses, and softens the way light reflects on the skin.
The soft-focus powders are great for highlighting around the eyes and on cheekbones to enhance the skin with a luminous effect.
Infused with Vitamin E and Argan Oil to help nourish and hydrate the skin.
Talc, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Dimethicone, Silica, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Boron Nitride, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Ve), Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742)
Thoughts: When I saw this, I was so stoke. This was perfect with the new trend of highlighting, strobing, and whatever people might call it.
e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Marsala Blush, lipstick only, on the lips and e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow in Sunset on the eyes.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no scent whatsoever. I just sniffed the product to make sure and yup, there's still no scent. Secondly, the palette comes with a mirror. It makes it travel-friendly. On the other hand, you do have to be careful how you carry the product. If you drop this by accident or put it in a wrong position while traveling, I can see it crack. Third, it has a slight layer of shine/gloss. Once you remove the top layer, it's on the matte side. This is definitely good for people who want slight shine on the skin and natural light reflecting off the powder. With that said, the powder is not compact and on the loose side.
* No scent.
* Comes with a mirror.
* Slight shine/gloss on the top layer of the powder.
* Matte powder.
* Best to use with a finger!
* Can mix and match.
* Good on all skin.
* Lasted all day on me.
* Can crack easily.
* Not compact.
* All over the place when used with a brush.
* No color difference on the skin.
Would repurchase: No.
