My Experience with ELF Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Texas:
I got this palette in the shade “Texas” because the color selection in this palette is pretty neutral. This palette comes with a huge mirror almost the size of the palette itself which I think, is a great idea if you want to use it as a to-go palette.
It has ten different shades, but they do not have a name. So, let me try to give a description of each color. They are:
1) Shimmery white
4) Rose Gold
6) Deep Brown
Most of these shades have a shimmer to them. The only matte shades are the browns. Incorporating these two can give a very intense and dramatic look. So, this palette is very versatile. I love the color selection and you can achieve a range of very pretty neutral looks.
Most of the colors have very good pigmentation and they have a buttery soft feel to them. The pink shade is the one with least pigmentation to it and you have to really apply a lot to get a good result. But, rest of them are well pigmented. Another thing I have experienced with ELF eye shadows is that the darker colors tend to be better pigmented than lighter ones. That holds true for this palette as well.
I use the shimmery white mostly on my brow bone as a highlighter. To get a more vibrant effect for a night time look, I would use these wet. Some of the colors that I absolutely love in this palette are rose gold, taupe, copper and the white as a highlighter. The gold is a very unique shade as well which I love for a night out kind of look.
Let me show you the colors closely:
Overall, I really like this palette, although I think the single eye shadows from ELF have a better quality. But, having so many neutral color shades in a single palette with a huge mirror does make it a great travel convenient palette.
Pros of ELF Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Texas:
• Compact with a good size mirror.
• Convenient for traveling over single eyeshadows.
• Price is great.
• Good pigmentation and pretty color selection.
• Can be used to get a range of very pretty neutral looks.
• Versatile enough to create day as well as night time looks.
• Easy to remove using a makeup remover.
• Colors stays a good amount of time.
Cons of ELF Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Texas:
• Quality is a little on the lower side when compared to the single eyeshadows from ELF.
• The pink color has a very low pigmentation.
Would I Repurchase ELF Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Texas?
Not the same variant. Definitely, the other shades.
Would I Recommend ELF Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Texas?
I would definitely recommend this palette especially because it has so many pretty neutral colors and is worth the money at 10 dollars. ELF also has some 50% sale days, so if you can get your hands on this palette for 5 dollars, that will be your best 5 dollars ever spent!
