Hey everyone! So today when I was chilling with my mom, I was talking to her about the e.l.f.
Beauty Book palette in the Smokey Eye Edition because she bought this about a month ago. She told me that she bought this because of the reasonable price and because she needed a decent black eyeshadow. This was limited edition and you may not be able to find it anymore.. I think they still sell it in Ross and TJ Maxx stores though for $5! Anyways, this contains 12 eyeshadows, 1 black eyeliner, and 1 sponge applicator. (Pictures of the Beauty Book are from http://plustique.blogspot.com/)
The shades outlined below are the only shades that I liked. They were highly pigmented and not as chalky as the other ones. The black is actually pretty high quality. It has a bit of shimmer in it but has super long stian power. I swatched it on my hand and then rubbed my hand under running water and it still did not all come off. I’m loving the silver as well as it has a metallic finish. I however did not try out the eyeliner or sponge applicator so I can’t way anything about that.
So overall, I would not recommend this palette. The other colors besides the ones in the yellow outline are nothing special at all and don’t give off much coloration.
Alright, so now for the part where I need your help. My friend and I are going to order some e.l.f products online in a week and I am oober excited! Here is what I am planning to buy. I have done a fair amount of research on each item so this may help you if you are planning to order from e.l.f. soon, too!
