Review: ELF 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette

100 colors in one palette? Isn't that awesome? I think I have every color I'll ever need for every makeup look with ELF 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette. 


This convenient makeup collection for your eyes allows you to be your own makeup artist whenever, wherever. A great value for any makeup lover!


Packaging and Price: The eye shadows are housed in a clear plastic packaging which comes with a small square mirror and 2 sponge tip applicators. I don't think the palette is suited for travel because it doesn't look sturdy at all. I think the price is 899.75php. Very affordable considering the number of the eye shadows you'll get.


I got this palette from winning ELF's raffle a couple of months ago. See my post about it here.


Colors: I love how the colors are neatly arranged! I don't have any difficulty during makeup application as they are arranged properly into their color scheme. My favorites are the browns, blues and greens! The palette has matte, shimmer, satin and marble finish eye shadows. Are you intrigued with the marble e/s as much as I am? 

Pigmentation, Application and Staying Power: The pigmentation of the eye shadows differ depending on their finish and color. Shimmer finish eye shadows have better pigmentation over matte ones. Some of the eye shadows are chalky and prone to fall outs. In my opinion, using a primer or a base color is a must for the eye shadow to stay longer and show its true color.


Swatches: I applied a creamy white eyeliner as base upon swatching some of my favorite colors from the palette. The colors show up better with primer or base underneath. Using a primer helps eye shadow adhere and last longer too.


When worn: Here are some of the looks I created using the palette.


What I like:
  • Super affordable considering the number of colors you'll get
  • Great color selection. It has every color you'll ever need!
  • Perfect palette to play with. I highly recommend this palette to makeup beginners like me!
  • Widely available on ELF counters at SM Department Stores/Watsons/Landmark
What I don't like:
  • Packaging looks cheap
  • Some eye shadows are poorly pigmented
  • Without primer, staying power is short
Rating:
8/10
Despite the poor pigmentation and staying power of some eye shadows, I still love this palette very much. I gave it an 8/10 because it's very affordable. I think this palette is perfect to play around with. Every makeup look you could think of can be created with this palette. Also, a good primer can easily resolve the pigmentation and staying power issue of this palette.

Where to get:
800-900php (not sure about the price) at ELF counters located at SM Department Stores/ Watsons/Landmark

    1. Awww, that's sad! Wrapping fragile makeup in a cloth during travel protects them from breaking. You should do so next time! <3
