This year’s Halloween was a total blast. I went on a road trip with my friends to Louisiana and long story short we partied hard; adorned in funky costumes and scary makeup. On every trip, I always get a souvenir for memory sake and local Walmart is the best place to get them.
On my usual souvenir hunt I came across an e.l.f. cosmetic display stand with awesome deals and without further ado I grabbed a bunch of cosmetics (eyeshadow, blush, lip gloss and so on) but sadly not all of them were a hit but for the money I shelled out they were just fine.
Following is the review of one of the 2 eyeshadows I purchased.

My Take on e.l.f Flawless Eye Shadow in Party Purple:
One look at the eye shadow case and you would know it is custom made for beginners. Anyone, who is new to the art of eye shadow blending or is a dilettante in the field of makeup should totally grab this one and enhance their skill before they start dabbling with more expensive brands.
Each color is placed in small separate section with its usage engraved on the surface of the color, as shown in the figure below. One can follow these steps to blend the colors and achieve a flawless yet effortless look which is ideal for party or even office.
There is a lot of fall out but if applied with a slight damp brush one can overcome this minor flaw. Also, the colors can be layered on and desired intensity can be achieved.
Pros of e.l.f Flawless Eye Shadow in Party Purple:
- Cute packaging with an in-built mirror and brush
- Dark shades with mild shimmer, ideal for a night out
- Decent staying power
- Perfect for beginners
- Pocket friendly
- Easily available online or in stores
- Definitely worth the money
Cons of e.l.f Flawless Eye Shadow in Party Purple:
- Unpleasant odor ( all lower end elf products have nasty smell 🙂 )
- Brush it comes with is very useless (but usually it’s the same case with all products)
- Lot of fall out
Would I Repurchase e.l.f Flawless Eye Shadow in Party Purple?
Maybe not, but I recommend it to all the beginners or people who love makeup but can’t fish out a large chunk of money. Also, for people who party once in blue moon, this eye shadow is god sent so go grab one.
