Review: ELF Beauty Eye Manual – Everyday Edition

22 Dec

Hello everyone! I got three of the ELF Beauty Eye Manuals and this is the first of three. Enjoy!

Description: An eye palette for an everyday look with 12 eyeshadow shades to choose from. Shades from left to right (top to bottom) Row 1 has a matte pinky nude, a shimmery pale pink, a shimmery gray tone lavendar and a dark shimmery gray-violet. Row 2 has a shimmery champagne, shimmery light brown, shimmery gray brown, and shimmery gray. Row 3 has a shimmery bright purple, shimmery mid-tone blue, shimmery midnight blue, and a glittery black. All swatches were done with one swipe.

Review: The shades in general have a soft texture that is semi-pigmented or pigmented. I found the shimmery midnight blue to be very hard to get pigmentation or any color from. It was a bit harder to work with compared to the other shades. To me all the shades look pretty much similar (based on undertones) so I wouldn’t say that it’s unique. The packaging is cardboard with foam holding the shadows in. It looks alright and considering the price point I wasn’t expecting to be wowed by the packagin. Wear time is about 5 hours considering that the shades are dark and with primer it lasts for 9 hours give or take a few hours. Overall, a pretty good palette but in comparison to the other palettes in the eye manual series this one turned out to be not as unique or user-friendly.

Cost: $5USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? I would for those who are beginning with makeup but for those who are seasonned this palette is nothing special and is not worth considering.
