I have been off from IMBB for a while and today I am back with a 100 piece eye shadow palette by Eyes Lips Face cosmetics. I hardly get a chance to put on eye make-up; I wear specs, often running late and not so good at EOTD’s! So I don’t own a one single eye shadow till now. I invest in palettes and this one has waited quite long to be reviewed as I wasn’t getting a chance to use them and they looked so neatly and beautifully packed that I regretted opening them. But finally, here I am with review of ELF Studio 100 Piece Eye Shadow Palette. The pictures will define it more than my words. Let’s see how this turned out to be.
Become your own makeup artist with our amazing Professional Eyeshadow Palette from the luxurious Studio line of cosmetics. In this complete Makeup Artist Eyeshadow Set, you’ll find everything to go from dark & smoky eyes to fresh & bright, to totally funky looks, thanks to the 100 eyeshadow colours in every set.
£15 in UK and $10 in USA. This is a hell of a cost difference and the USA based company sale the cosmetics at a much higher price in Europe. I got the UK made version. Net Weight: 90g

My take on ELF Studio 100 Piece Eye Shadow Palette:
The packaging: As I always say, ELF takes special care in packing the products and the followed the same rule in this case too. The palette looks really beautiful in card-box with transparent upper cover. When I opened and hold it in hands, I realized the actual palette case is of cheap plastic and looks fragile and of low quality. I am quite disappointed because I expected something better, it isn’t that low priced for a cheap packaging I guess. Anyways, the plastic cover displays all the 100 colours, organized chronically in shade series in 10×10 columns in small rectangular pans. A small mirror and two very small sponge applicators are included.
Texture and finish:
The texture of the eye shadows is really soft with velvety smooth feel. They are finely milled and non-gritty. Few shades are soft to such extent that a forceful or rough stroke of applicator breaks chunks from the surface. Because of this, you will observe some fallout in the pan and while applying them on eye lids. The palette includes a total diversity; it has matte, satin and shimmery shades. Hence the finish varies from shade to shade. I love the satin ones most.
The dark colours are richly pigmented, the medium have good and light shades have a decent pigmentation .I couldn’t find more than 2-3 shades that were poor in pigmentation.
Shade range is wide and versatile. You will find sun set oranges, pumpkin yellows, deep sea blues, sparkly silvers, ash greys, charcoal blacks, forest greens, peacock blues, glittery golden, sober browns, natural neutrals and few shades of girly pinks.
I haven’t been able to wear the all day long but as far as I observed, they last for 3 hours in full bloom, then fade slightly and get a bit here and there.

Cons of ELF Studio 100 Piece Eye Shadow Palette:
