Hope you all are doing great. The festival and wedding season is near and for such occasions, a makeup kit is all that we need to keep our makeup in place. Carrying many boxes and products separately with you while travelling, always leaves the chance of missing out something. So, having a makeup kit helps to keep all products together and saves us from last minute hassle of finding things and if the makeup kit is compact, then it is more helpful and handy to use on day-to-day basis. So, today, I am going to review a makeup palette from ELF for you all which comes in a clutch form.
$30, but you can get it for #15 during sales and offers.
Be fashionably beautiful wherever, whenever! Ideal for the woman on-the-go, this stylish hard-sided Beauty Makeup Clutch provides the essentials to take your look from day to night. Open the 47-piece mirrored palette to reveal an array of eyeshadows on top and a pull-out tray with blushes, bronzer, eyebrow cream, and lip colors! You’ll always be prepared for any occasion with this must-have makeup accessory.
My Experience with ELF Studio Makeup Clutch Palette:
This clutch palette is actually the size of a real clutch. This palate includes 32 eye shadows, 2 blushes, 1 bronzer, 1 face shimmer, 1 eyebrow gel and eyebrow powder, and 6 lip glosses and 3 dual-ended applicator. So, it actually has almost all the makeup products one would need. When you open it, the top tray contains eyeshadows and there is a second sliding tray underneath which contains the blush, bronzer, shimmer, brow products and the lip glosses. Now, let me take you in detail over all of these.
Let’s start with the eyeshadows; the 32 eye shadows include natural as well as vivid shades. As you can see in the pictures, teh colours in the top two rows are shimmery but the colours in the bottom two rows are more on the matte side, but not chalky. The browns and champagne shades are good to use daily and the other shimmery shades are apt for festivals and parties. So many shades with such great pigmentation is a delight for eye makeup enthusiasts. Though the colours are well pigmented, but using primer improves the longevity and intensity of colors.
Now, let’s talk about the blushes and bronzer, out of the two blushes – one is a cool-toned pink which suits most skin tones and the other is a shimmery peach which is not something I like to wear, but I feel this will look good on dusky beauties. Bronzer is also something which will work for fair to medium skin tones. It also has a face shimmer, which gives dewy shine to the skin. So girls who like to use highlighters will like it. The brow gel and powder are in dark brown shade which is the same that we get in our much-loved ELF brow kits. Including the brow grooming products in the makeup palette actually makes this palette very practical and a complete palette for me at this price.
This palette also has 1 clear, 1 peach, 2 pinks, 1 berry and 1 red gloss in this kit. These glosses are a bit of a letdown for me as they are not as pigmented as I would like them to be. They are shiny and a good selection of shades is available here, but they are neither long lasting nor pigmented enough to cover my pigmented lips. So, these lip glosses don’t impress me, but it might impress young girls or ladies who like sheer colors.
The kit also includes 3 dual-ended applicators, but I feel if there was only one dual-ended applicator and if they could include one lip and one blush brush, it would have been better, that could have made this a complete palette.
Overall, I will say that it’s a nice palette which is complete in many ways. I recommend this to everyone who is looking for a compact and useful palette. It is also a good choice for makeup beginners and it makes a great gift when you want to give something special to people who love makeup without going past your budget.
