Isn't it fun to play with eye shadows especially if you have a lot of colors to choose from? Makeup looks are endless! I have a total of 188 colors when I combine my DollFace 88 Color Eyeshadow Palette and ELF 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette altogether. Isn't 188 too much?
When I posted my review on ELF 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette, some asked how it is compared to DollFace 88 Color Eyeshadow Palette. I hope I'll be able to answer your questions through this post.
Packaging: Both are made up of plastic. ELF has a clear top while Dollface is all black and shiny. Both have a small mirror inside and dual-ended foam applicators. I prefer Dollface's black packaging as it looks more sleek and professional-looking. (Makeup artist vibe. Chos!) Also, Dollface's is more travel-friendly because it is smaller and sturdier.
Price: ELF is only 900php with 100 colors while Dollface is 800php with 88 colors. ELF is a bit cheaper, 900php for 100 colors!
Colors, Lasting power: ELF has matte, shimmer and marble finish eyeshadows, more choices! I think the colors in the ELF palette are more wearable compared to Dollface. There are a lot of light colors in Dollface that doesn't show up well on my lids (light blue, light pink). Also, I think the colors in ELF are fairly distributed - just the right amount of browns, pinks blues while DollFace has duplicate colors - looks two different colors in pan but looks similar when swatched (blues, orange, browns)
Pigmentation: Dollface performs better in terms of pigmentation. On the above swatch, I swiped the eyeshadow from the Dollface palette once while ELF is swiped 3 times. Same goes to the photo below. Both are a bit chalky.
Lasting power: Both can last up to 2-3 hours without primer and 6-8 hours with primer. I see the necessity of using an eye primer prior to application of eyeshadow from both brands for better adhesion, longer staying power and for colors to show up well.
Both palettes have their pros and cons. I prefer using DollFace for photoshoots as it is easier to bring around. Also, the colors from the DollFace palette are very vibrant and colorful. On the other hand, ELF has a lot more colors to offer. I particularly love the neutrals from the palette - golds & browns! I cannot really answer the question - which is better as it really depends with one's preference of colors. What I can say is both are great for beginners, for those who want to experiment with colors.
Is this comparison helpful? Do you have any palette from Dollface? ELF? How do you find them?
