How are you all? Enjoying the winters?? The rajaais…the long hot showers…the garam garam adrak wali chai?? 🙂 Winters here in Mumbai are very mild and pleasant. I love this weather here now and wish it was like this all year round!! Anyway, coming to today’s review this one is an eye shadow palette (in a book format) by ‘eyes lips face’. e.l.f. as we know it, has some really good products coming at a very reasonable price. OK, being honest, not every product is upto the mark, but you can surely come across some great ones too. Now, whether this eye shadow book is a hit or miss, let us see…
This 36-Piece eye shadow book features a fun geometric pattern for a totally unique design. Become your own makeup artist whenever, wherever. A great value for any makeup lover! The all-in-one compact includes our must-have eye shadow shades, and the small sleek design is great for on-the-go beauty touch ups. Includes two double-sided eyeshadow applicators and a mirror-all in a convenient, stylish package!
I think the marked price was $6 when I got it.
My Experience with e.l.f. Studio Geometric 36-Piece Eyeshadow Book:
Packaging: The e.l.f. Studio geometric 36-Piece Eyeshadow Book comes in a unique packaging. The left portion contains a mirror and 12 colors while the remaining 24 colors are on the right hand side portion. It also comes with 2 applicators which I don’t think I am ever going to use, except for touch-ups maybe. The book does fold at the centre, but it doesn’t shut completely. Well, I didn’t force it either as I feared damaging it 😛
Color: The shades come in 6 different slots, each carrying 6 colors. Each slot contains beautiful shades complementing each other. It consists of shades from daily wear to party wear, from neutral to smoky look, you get it all in one palette. All the shades are soo… wearable, even the blues and purple look lovely and not OTT. The left portion contains neutrals and on the right, there are slots of green, blue, pink-purple and grey-black. None of them is too bright or harsh. Even if you are a neutral lover like me, you can experiment with various looks without the fear of looking clowny.:P
Pigmentation and finish: The pigmentation is great, if not awesome, even without a primer. The finish is satin soft, not creamy but not chalky either. The fallout is minimal. The shadows are finely milled and tightly packed. There are both, an even distribution of mattes and shimmers. From the swatches, it might seem that maximum shades are shimmery but it is not so. There are nicely pigmented mattes too.
Staying Power: The staying power is decent. I use eye shadows only occasionally, so I wear them for a limited number of hours. With this palette, I seldom require touch ups. The eye shadow stays for 3-4 hours even without a primer. A good eye primer will increase the longevity of the shadow.
Overall, I am impressed with this palette as it is great value for money and excellent for beginners.
