ELF Little Black Beauty Book Warm Collection Review
Many of my friends and cousins are familiar with my articles here and they see my tutorials; so when I meet them, some of them always ask me to do their makeup. Obviously, one does not carry a lot of eye colors and lip colors, so I couldn’t help out, but now thanks to this product and its other variant in cool shades, I now always carry with me pretty much every eyeshadow color needed for any look. Both come in a neat, handy little case and its so easy to carry around. This warm collection, true to its name, has a gorgeous range of warm colors. Check out the cool collection review by Shagufta here.
This convenient 48-piece makeup collection for your eyes allows you to have your Little Black Beauty Book readily available any time, anywhere!

My Experience with ELF Little Black Beauty Book Warm Collection:
Like I said, I need something small to carry around with me at all time, but not just small, it has to be of decent quality and needs to have a variety of colors. For the warm colors, this palette has me set! It not only has a good range of colors, but they also have a very wonderful quality. Even the lip colors are not bad. Some are very sheer and gloss-like, but most are decently pigmented and have a good lipstick color pay off.
There are 28 eye colors, ranging from golden to brown, various shades of green, maroon, earthy pinky plums, bronze et al. There is a mix of textures, some are matte, some satin finish and still some others are shimmery; one dark brown color is glittery as well. So that is a good mix of colors and textures. The colors are easy to blend, soft, do not have a lot of fall out except for the very matte ones.
Coming to the lip colors, my favorites are the orangey colors here. I do not own any other orange shades and these I rely on a lot. Especially the third from the left on the second row, is a beautiful orange color. Other colors range from red, to brown to purple to golden or just sheer gloss. The gold and “white” colors look weird on their own and are obviously meant for just topping it on other colors, they work beautifully like that. The darker the shade, the better the color pay off.
Pros of ELF Little Black Beauty Book Warm Collection:
- Small and compact, truly travel size.
- Very inexpensive for the quality.
- A good range of colors for those who prefer warm shades.
- The eyeshadows have good quality.
- The lip colors are decent enough too.
- 48 colors in one small kit!
Cons of ELF Little Black Beauty Book Warm Collection:
- I need to keep a small plastic sheet inside so that the fallout from the eye colors does not reach the lip colors.
- Available only through online in India.
Will I Repurchase ELF Little Black Beauty Book Warm Collection?
This should last me long as I use it only in case of emergency. When I do run out, I would get something very similar to this, if not exactly this.
Do I Recommend ELF Little Black Beauty Book Warm Collection?
If you have liked what you have read so far, then absolutely yes. Especially for beginners, I think it is an excellent product! My favourite 10 eye shades from this palette are:
